We spent an afternoon in Portland snacking, drinking, shopping & geocaching. There is no shortage of places to drink and snack. This one caught our eye and we were glad we stopped in. The beer is very good. We had the stout at a stop at their sister location Nova Res. I enjoyed their sours - not a typical brewpub... More

I didnt have enough time to try a lot but the drink i had was different and good. I will have to stop in next time to try the beers. They sounded good and plenty to choose from.

I do believe that this is now Liquid Riot! The brew pub renamed itself. It's in the same place on Commercial at the end of Union.

Decided to stop in here after spending the whole weekend driving buy this place and I wish we would have stopped by sooner. They made the best cocktails we had in Portland and the ingredients/spirits they use are top notch. Every cocktail we tried was great and will make this a permanent visit for every future Portland trip.

We recently drank and ate at Liquid Riot and enjoyed everything! The drinks were perfectly mixed and my husband loved their beer. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the food was just as great. We ordered the pretzel and mussels for apps, then ordered the Riot burger and asparagus pasta for dinner. I felt like I was eating food... More

We were wholly underwhelmed by the food, service, and general vibe. The server was lackluster, slow, and inattentive. The "wasabi peasand pretzels" were a mix of Asian puffed rice crackers clearly from a bag. We left irritated and hungry, and luckily had food in the car to snack on for the ride home.

Fell into this on a rainy night and delighted to learn it was a gastropub. They brew right there and have a fabulous selection. I asked for something approximating Guiness and they delivered something better! This simple decor resto-pub didn't look like much but the food was excellent. Salmon was cooked just the way I ordered it. My friends ordered... More

We came after dinner for beer and cocktails, so didn't eat any food here. But the bar experience was amazing. The taps and bar are beautifully designed, everything down to the bathrooms. One must order an Old Fashioned just to see the ice ball machine in action!!

We stumbled upon Liquid Riot Brewery and had a great experience that exceeded expectations.they had a large selection of their own brews on tap. I had a strong Belgian ale that had great malt flavors and was well balanced. My wife had an Irish stout similar to Guiness but with more complexity. The beer menu is a little too IPA... More
