4534 SE Belmont St., 232-2202, horsebrass.com. 11 am-2:30 am daily.

The original capital of Brewvana, and still the closest Portland comes to royalty among beer bars, Horse Brass has regulars who have been drinking real ale under these heavy wooden beams since the Carter administration. And the dimly lit Brit-styled pub—home to countless beer taps (OK, 50) including a bitter named for its legendary, late owner, Don Younger—is still a great spot to order a pint and the ploughman's lunch off the water-stained paper menu. Soccer plays when English soccer plays, each chip is served with vinegar and brown sauce, and the beer menu is longer than the food menu.

Entertainment: Darts, occasional music, English soccer.
