“Excellent beers”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

Visited Coalition as part of the Brewvana Portland Brewery Tours and really enjoyed this stop. A great line up of beers named after cats and music (WU Cream anyone?). Favourite was the CDA cascadian dark ale, and purchased a bottle of their sour wit for after the tour. Friendly service cool brewery.

“Great Beer & Friendly Service”
Reviewed September 17, 2013

Great inventive small batch beers and interesting bar food + friendly bartenders and patrons = fun Portland brewery! Not sure what more you could ask for. Oh yeah, you can rent the awesome apartment above this place off of VRBO and there is a food cart lot with Wolf & Bear (falafel) and grilled cheese carts right around the corner. Visited Portland for a weekend and barely left the few blocks around Coalition the whole time!

“Unpretentious neighborhood pub with outstanding selection of brews!”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

In a city bursting with microbreweries, it's becoming a tough choice to settle on a single stop during a weekend visit to the Big City (we are baby boomers who have to stop with one beer each, so going out for a brew is no casual decision). Coalition Brewing Company was the perfect choice,especially as we were staying nearby in Portland's Laurelhurst neighborhood. My spouse and I shared seven samples of their current lineup and thought them all merit-worthy, in particular enjoyed the winter seasonal "Lost Glove". How can you not love a beer by such a name? Friendly guy at the tap and small, mellow crowd of obvious regulars. The menu also looked very appealing for foodies of the Portland ilk. We liked their beers so much, we bought a few bottles to take back to Eugene with us and have been recommending Coalition to all our brew-loving friends and students.

Reviewed August 2, 2011

This is a good place to go for a beer. They have a great selection to choose from. Small place, though.
