Pubs in Northeast
Restaurant on top floor of Hotel Eastlund with good selection of beers on tap and in bottles, quality upscale menu, and views, especially towards the Convention Center and across the river to downtown Portland.
Original home of Breakside, comfortable neighborhood pub with good range of own beers on tap, good pub food, and bottles to go.
Close-to-downtown brewpub with very good food and eclectic beers. Well worth a visit. Nice little outdoor beer garden area too.
Neighborhood beer destination since 2004, good selection on tap and hearty pub food.
Hidden away in a mixed-use neighborhood of light industry and residences, wide range of beers brewed and on tap, and chances are they will be brewing and you'll savor your beer with the sweet smell of wort in the air. Good simple pub menu centers on smoked meaty treats. Weekly guest Roots and Blooms food truck also features vegetarian cuisine.
It's not often that a new (well, sort of) brewpub is so strong right at the start, but that's the case here. Strong contender for best new brewpub in Portland in 2016. Note: this was formerly the Mash Tun, before it was sold and the name was changed. The beers are decidedly not the same.
Northeast Portland gets its own version of SE Division's Imperial Bottle Shop and Taproom. This time, the focus is more on the taproom, but there's still a bottle shop in back, for everybody's take-home needs. Nice addition to NE PDX taprooms, and just a short walk from Great Notion Brewing.
Multi-outlet brewery/pub group; the NE Sandy location is the original. Reliably good beers and hearty pub food on the menu. 2nd location is in the Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood.
Newly opened in July 2017, and located way out on the far northeast side of the city, Level Beer is one to watch. Initial tap list consisted of collaboration brews, with house-brewed beers expected to follow soon.
More than one pub is under this roof, as well as a restaurant, brewery, movie theater, and hotel rooms. McMenamins is known for their repurposing of old buildings and this one is done well. Note: hours vary at different bars and the restaurant; restaurant hours are given.
Roomy neighborhood brewpub in Kerns neighborhood. Nice big beer patio out front.
Well-worn old-fashioned British-style pub serving the nearby neighborhood and beyond. Great spot to stop in for a beer after seeing a 70mm film at the nearby Hollywood Theater.
Pizza place originally started in Northwest Portland's Old Town expanded to this NE PDX location in 2011, featuring more pizza and house-brewed beers in big wood-accented pub. House Shanghai'd IPA won a gold medal at 2015 Great American Beer Festival.
The world's first not-for-profit pub has craft beer, pub food, a friendly neighborhood feel, and proceeds from every beer sold benefit a charity of the buyer's choice. They call it #Aletruism.
Single wedge-shaped room and wide bar features a dozen taps and a generous list of booze, including a lot of whiskies. The taps include a cider, Fernet Branca (yes, on tap) for those so inclined, and 9 craft beers and Rainier lager as the one constant, for those just looking for a cheap old-school American lager.
Former home of BTU Brasserie, this entirely new brewpub (under new ownership) has shifted focus significantly. Now this is more of a brats-and-fries kind of place with an expanding selection of house beers.
One of two local beer venues that feature only German (or Austrian) beers on tap, just like its Seattle and Portland sister pubs in the Prost! group. No local beers generally, but really good German-inspired food and imported beers in good condition more than make up for this. Outdoor seating and wide open windows and doors in good weather, a classic "Eckkneipe" in the urban German tradition.
