Cozy little pub with plenty of corner nooks and a back patio, serving a good range of Sean Burke's lagers and ales.


COVID-19 update: taproom re-opened. Masks off only when seated.

More than two and a half decades in, Hair of the Dog's beers have gained recognition far beyond Portland, but production remains deliberately small-scale, and the brewery's own tasting room is the best place to find and enjoy the exceptional range of house beers on offer. Food is good, too.


New-era showpiece brewpub and taproom built and run by Portland Kettle Works. Simple modern design inside, 3.5-barrel brewery in back. Unlike conventional brewpubs, the brewery doesn't have an in-house brewer; rather, it is intended for use by Kettle Works customers and guest brewers. Generous guest-beer policy.


One-room pub with plenty of outdoor seating in front when weather permits. No kitchen, but food trucks are parked on-premises. Unique in being the region's only certified-kosher brewery.


Tiny one-room local with outdoor space in good weather. Heavy on local and Oregon selections.


Smallish functional taproom serves a range of quality house brews. Mt Tabor originally started in Portland, relocated across the Columbia to Vancouver, and is now back in Portland and one of the latest in the Buckman Brewery District.


The world's first not-for-profit pub has craft beer, pub food, a friendly neighborhood feel, and proceeds from every beer sold benefit a charity of the buyer's choice. They call it #Aletruism.


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


As of January 2019, Portland's newest brewery and taproom for at least a few weeks. Just a few years ago, there were no breweries in this part of Portland; now there are two, with Montavilla Brewing just around the corner. Threshold features a roomy, open taproom space, including seats at the bar. Early days have seen three beers on tap: a grisette, a hazy IPA, and a hazy double IPA. Bring your own food. This part of Montavilla now has four decent beer venues, making for a good pub crawl.


Probably the most hidden brewery taproom in town, located in a corner of the building's basement. Well worth finding, though, to sample an excellent range of beers, from one of the best Pilsners brewed anywhere to an impressive range of barrel-aged beers and single-batch one-offs. Widely regarded as one of the best artisanal brewers in town. A 2018 update added a wrap-around bar (so more seating) and the ability to take credit cards as well as cash. That worked out all right until 2020, when the taproom closed down in March and remained that way, opening only for limited pickups of beer orders to go. Then came the best news of all: the taproom was going to be upstairs on the main (entry) floor of the building, and much easier to find. It opened in early June of 2021 and is easily worth a visit.
