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

This is a great place to go when visiting portland if you want to get away from the busy hotspots and tourists. Great to try local beers and catch up. The food looked pretty good too but we didn't order any. There were walls of books and board games too! I'd go back.

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"

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.

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.
