Lutz Tavern may be situated in a section of Woodstock that's been overtaken with modernity, but when you walk inside, you're transported to an era of Portland when Doc Martens were the preferred attire and smoking was the preferred pastime. Known for "getting a new generation hooked on PBR," the Lutz now offers an impressive ale-heavy beer list, with a collection of gems from around the state like Crux and Terminal Gravity. For the adventurous drinker, the Painkiller slushie is sweet and pairs nicely with the patio. For the Reedies and retirees who make up a large portion of its regulars, the Lutz feels more like a state of mind than a place. And if it's managed to stay in business with a New Seasons and a snazzy new taproom from Double Mountain across the street, it may be able to last forever.
