    Great hearty beer! I suggest not committing to a full 12oz the first visit; get the sampler "Walk the Dog" or several 3oz tasters! They all complement each other well.

    Sweet stemmed glasses for any flights or samplers. The selection is more limited as compared to other PDX breweries but the beers are still unique, and the brewery, legendary. Matt and Ruth are great!

    For you out of towners, this is a classic Portland brewery with tons of character, a cozy atmosphere and solid beers. Be sure to cross this one off the list!

    I love this place! The atmosphere us great. A little spendy but a great place to chill out with your hubby after a long week or meat friends! My fav beer was 'the Fred' and 'the Ruth'

    One of the top three breweries in Portland. $2.5 for a 3oz taster.

    Great space and world class beer. Seating can become limited as a result of the popularity.

    I had the Blue Dot IPA along with four other beers in a tasting menu. As an IPA fan, I thought the Blue Dot was extremely good.

    The Adam is good if you like a chocolate tasting beer. For food, get the short rib. The mustard on the side complements.

    Another amazing craft-brewery from Portland! With 2 beers reigning under 15-best Ratebeer rating, Adam and Fred, use their sampler to try them all.

    Whatever you do, get the boneless braised short rib. It's so tender to the point that you don't need a knife. Best thing on the menu!!

    If there are any "From the Wood" beers on tap get it. The brisket here is amazingly delicious.

    The Adam was luxurious! Who knew chocolate, leather, and smoke would make such an excellent flavor profile

    Shrimp po boy was great. Really good beers here as well. The Blue Dot, Fred, and Adam are all standouts.

    Totally worth checking out if you want some different than Deschutes, Rogue Ales, Full Sail, & other more mainstream Oregon beers.

    Vintage beers are great. Draft lineup is average (outside of Fred and Adam, which were fantastic).

    Try anything from the Egg, and contrast it with the tap or barrel version of the same beer.

    No impressed at all. The turkey sandwich was not worth $9, the meat was all dried out and the bread used was of a low quality. Also, The Resturant is clearly understaffed
