Pubs in Northwest

Big brewpub in NW Portland, in a neighborhood where it's hard to walk more than a few blocks without finding a brewpub. Everything's all new and shiny, and there's a huge range of house-brewed beers: IPAs, dark ales, sours, and more.
Partly a storage area for a multi-passenger bicycle contraption that's used to take people around town on pub tours, part brewery, and part small pub. This one's easy to miss, nestled among much larger neighbors. Simple taproom with interesting range of beers.
Owned by Washington state's Backwoods Brewing, taps are mostly the beers from the facility in Carson, WA. Big bright open taproom plus a back room for overflow seating and live music. Great for a northwest Portland pub crawl; the density of brewpubs within just a few blocks is impressive.
Well chosen draft selection, a few bottled beers, cocktails, and pub food in a smallish corner local. Seems about right.
Smallish two-room pub for beer drinking on-premises or growler fills to take away. Simple and minimalist but lively.
Newest of the Breakside group of breweries and taprooms. Huge, modern two-level pub and restaurant, bustling and busy, deservedly popular with a wide-ranging taplist of house beers.
Big Pacific-Northwest-themed brewpub in NW Portland's Pearl District. Wide range of house beers, from standard to seasonals and one-offs, and extensive food menu too. Easily accessed with Portland Streetcar.
Originating in Ohio, Fat Head's opened its Portland Pearl District store in November 2014. In 2018, the agreement between the Portland owner and Fat Head's expired, and the name changed to Von Ebert's. Huge roomy brewpub, pub food in gigantic portions, wide variety of house and guest beers.
Opened March 2019, originally as an expanded production brewery, no complete with on-premises taproom and full kitchen.
Irish-themed pub and brewery with, of course, focus on Irish-style beers on tap.
Big beer hall with its own brewery and pizza kitchen. Big back room for special events, wide range of house-brewed beers on tap.
Corner bottle shop with McMenamins tap selection. Unusual in that this is a rare private shop that sells liquor, normally done in state liquor shops (Oregon is a control state). Plenty of beer (included crowlers packaged fresh form the taps) and McMenamins schwag to buy too.
Rambling England-meets-Deadhead neighborhood pub in Northwest Portland with the usual McMenamins trappings of pub food and house ales. McMenamins pubs may be predictable, but as predictable goes, they're okay for a house brew and an inexpensive and filling meal. Eight pool tables for the players.
Rambling urban brewpub, Rogue's outpost in NW Portland with plenty of Rogue beer and pub food on hand. The location has its own Portland beer history too, being the original location of Portland Brewing way back in the 1980s.
Production brewery and taproom, expansion of original Sasquatch brewpub in southwest Portland (Hillsdale).
