“Meh!!”

Description: Very cozy, homey place. Smallest brewery in Portland. Ususally has four or five brews ready. Does sell product from other micro-breweries in Portland. Has finger food available. Very good Russian Imperial Stout. The bartender is philosophy graduate and engages in conversations easily. It is more like a neighborhood tavern. Waliking distance from all downtown hotels

“Meh!!”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Not much to it. A little hole in the wall bar that has moved beyond rough around the edges, old school charm to just plain old " we dont care"

“If you love a pub that has board games this is your place”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Seriously, board games. I could not have been happier. This bar looks like a library with book shelves and neat decorative stuff on the walls. The bartenders are friendly and helpful with choosing beers. Very chill atmosphere, great for a group of friends or a cozy date.

“Service and ambiance awesome!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Everything about the place is great, however, they need to work a bit more on the IPA. it was flat, grainy and not very hoppy.
Staff is great. Had a good time.
Excellent value, and right downtown.

“Nice little place to hang out”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We loved this little pub. Super friendly staff. Not too loud. Great beer brewed on the premises. We sat at the bar and played scrabble with a local joe. Felt homey and comfortable. We had the humus plate appetizer and loved it. No big dinner items here. Just appetizers.
