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.


First of the two Abbey Bars to open in NW Portland, with a modest taplist but a huge selection of bottled beers in the coolers. Cozy smallish place, nice neighborhood pub for beers with friends.


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.


Oregon's oldest craft brewery, dating back to 1984, when craft brewing was still a new idea. The pub has evolved and changed right along with its neighborhood, but is still popular. Order a Blue Heron or IPA and taste Oregon's brewing history.


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. Huge roomy brewpub, pub food in gigantic portions, wide variety of house and guest beers.


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).
