My experience at this Brewery was nothing short but lovely. I'm from San Francisco visiting Portland for the first time. My first impression was when our waitress offered me apples and peanut butter from the kids menu as a fruit side when they are really not supposed to do that. She said, "I'm not really supposed to do this for adults, but I'm a big believer in eating fruit so I'll make it happen!" After that, the experience was awesome. Everyone who works there has a very laid back personality, which allows you to not only enjoy the restaurant but the area you're in. We sat on the outside deck, which is open seating. It was very calm and quaint. The deck overlooks a street where the old railways and cobblestone roads used to be in the direction away from the middle of the Pearl. In this respect, the brewery offers a historic significance creating an old-fashioned architectural vibe. The area reminds me of exactly what you would see in the Greenwich district in New York. Overall, great experience. Food was great. Highly recommend!
