“Great food and beer with a beautiful view.”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

I had lunch here on a Wednesday so it was fairly quiet.

BEER: Fantastic. I had an IPA on this trip and had the Belgian Dark Strong Ale at another restaurant. Both were well balanced and very good. My brother-in-law really enjoyed his beer, a Pilsner I think.

FOOD: Pretty awesome for bar food. My wife and I split the burger and the pulled pork bahn mi sandwich (minus the chicken liver mousse). The burger and fries was top notch. Nicely seasoned and cooked correctly. The bahn mi was panini style and the pork shined and the freshness of the "slaw" on it was a nice counter to cut the richness. Others in my group had the same items and another had the homemade bratwurst, which was good but needed the mustard on the table to cut it.

AMBIENCE: Loved that the brewing equipment was right there in the dining room. They also had a kiddo area with some toys, which kept my toddler entertained during the meal.

VIEW: The view was great as it is located pretty much on the Columbia River with only a park/beach area separating the restaurant from the water.

Overall, highly recommended. Drive to Muthotmah Falls, lunch here and hit up the Bonneville Dam on the way back and you have a nice day trip from the Portland area.

“Beer, atmosphere, service - top notch!”
Reviewed May 2, 2014

We had an excellent dinner here in late April. A very sweet server with good knowledge of the beer and food. We got a sampler and LOVED everything. Wit, Black Saison, IPA all amazing stuff. I had a veggie burger, which was homemade and very large. My husband got mussels and fries (-I would say the mussel portion was on the small side.) Nice urban industrial decor, and great river views. We got treated to a double rainbow! I even bought a t-shirt- I like it that much!

Reviewed April 25, 2014

Came across this place by accident and it turned out to be the best food we had in our week vacation in Oregon! Husband said it was the best burger he's ever had in his life! The mushroom soup was to die for. Cool atmosphere, great staff, and really good beer.

Reviewed February 12, 2014

This new brewery is fantastic. Had two of the Blonde IPA's while watching the snowfall this past weekend. The atmosphere is great, the beer is perfect and the food good. Order the french fries, they are pretty special. The burger was pretty good too.
