930 SE Oak St., 764-9152, basecampbrewingco.com. Noon-10 pm Sunday-Wednesday, 11 am-midnight Thursday-Saturday.
Base Camp gears itself toward the outdoorsy Portlander. The large Southeast Portland production facility has a cavernous taproom, two semi-permanent food carts, and a beat-up canoe suspended by climbing rope above the bar. So, yes, this is the fourth place of people who wear flannel almost daily and spend every waking moment devising their next Instagrammable adventure. The brewery is as varied in its takes on classic styles as its patrons are with brands of high-end outerwear. On over a dozen taps, they offer everything from barrel-aged saisons to the fan favorite S'more Stout, which comes in a snifter with a freshly torched marshmallow on the side. Takes on traditional beer styles, like the hazy and biting rye Pilsner, sometimes miss. But semi-classic versions of English ales, such as the brewery's Trailside ESB, are warmly malty, finishing New World clean. Food from the carts is fast and cheap, and by and large, everything on tap is a worthy adventure.
Drink This: The S'more Stout, which is among the most sessionable dark ales in town.
