New entry in the Guide in 2018

The following are new entries in the Guide for 2018.


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.


Baerlic Brewing's northeast Portland outpost is a taproom that serves as the central anchor for The Barley Pod, surrounded by food carts. Why have a kitchen when you can have one of the most varied menus in town instead?


Now here's something: craft beer bar co-located with a kitchen that turns out Laotian food. It's a good combination. You want this in your life: a good IPA with spicy food as good as any Thai joint makes, maybe even better.


Newly opened in July 2018 after incubating at Culmination Brewing, Ruse specializes in farmhouse styles, big stouts, and others as the brewers see fit. The beers have been well-received, for all the right reasons.


Newly opened in May 2018, this is a branch of the original Stormbreaker on N. Mississippi Ave. The St Johns pub features a sizable covered beer patio; food and beer options are pretty much as they are at the N Mississippi location. Great new addition to St Johns pub scene.


Portland's brewing scene is continuing to expand on the city's far east side. Von Ebert, the former Fat Head's brewpub in Northwest Portland, has taken over the premises of the former Ringside restaurant and bar at the Glendoveer golf course; the bar is big, airy, and roomy enough to accommodate hordes of nearby drinkers from a much more suburban part of Portland.


Brand new Portland brewpub as of July 24th, 2018. Seating on two levels, bar upstairs, pub food, and everything is so new and shiny. It will get a lived-in look in due time. Very modern, good use of a re-purposed building.
