MY first bar in Portland, drove straight from Kamloops right into these doors. The place was larger than I expected. Its an old commercial building with polished concrete floors, big windows into the brewery and mostly picnic tables indoors. Big outdoor space which was used for some events (like Killer Beer Weeks Pumpkin Smashing).
I will explain my rating this way, I would start at 10/10 and take a couple points off for these things:
-small single bathroom for very large and crowded place.
-50 beers on tap and no coors, happy with that, although we had a couple craft beers that night that we're really less than drinkable, so perhaps the quality control isn't as reflective as all the beers.
Otherwise the take home bottle selection was good, some Old Numbskulls from Alesmith being probably the rarest of the bunch.
The food was good, pub food. Our server was good at telling us which beers we're not good, and she knew her beer. I do not know if this is normal.
Beer in America is so cheap, I would call this good value at 4.50 a pint, but I heard people tell me that wasn't as good as I thought.
I will return next visit to Portland as their will also be some fantastic and rare beers on tap, however this is not the pinnacle of beer bar experiences.
