The 21-year-old Central Oregon brewery planted its bar stools in the Pearl District last year. The new pub has a chain feel—TVs tuned to ESPN, huge plate-glass windows letting in way too much light for a bar and carved wood decor trying a bit too hard to be authentic Oregon. Fortunately, the brewery’s 16 on-tap beers offer a wide selection of tasty classics and seasonal brews at $4.75 a pint. And the bar food is strong, whether it’s a heaping happy-hour plate of crisp french fries ($2.95) or a juicy 1/3-pound Brewery Burger ($9.50).
What to drink: If you can’t chose, try a tray of six 4-ounce samples for $6.50.
Happy hour: $3.50 draft pints 4-6 pm Monday-Friday.
Entertainment: TV, sports.
