Pubs on 44 Bus Line
Ever been to a brewpub operated as a non-profit business? You have if you've visited Ex Novo. Interesting house beers, good and reasonably priced pub food.
Corner-bar taproom in St Johns, good bottled selection in the coolers and good tap selection too. Located in the ground floor of a newer apartment building. Great addition to St Johns neighborhood beer scene. Tap count includes eight beers and two ciders.
Second taproom location for popular NE Portland brewery, saves SW PDXers a trip out across the Willamette.
Classic Portland-meets-England local, with a singular claim to fame. The Hillsdale Public House was the first modern-era brewpub in Oregon. Beers are mostly Anglo-American style ales.
Former Hopworks Bike Bar now operating as a Migration Brewing tied taproom
Rambling Northwest-style brewpub in Hillsdale, pub menu and wide range of house-brewed beers and ciders on tap. Popular with locals.
Smallish two-room pub for beer drinking on-premises or growler fills to take away. Simple and minimalist but lively.
Affiliated with the nationwide Growler Station franchise, but heavy on Oregon beers. Drink on-premises or fill a growler to go, or choose from a generous selection of bottles.
At one time, this was the most hidden brewery taproom in town, located in a corner of the building's basement. Now the taproom is right at street level, easy to find, and if you know what you're doing and don't mind walking a few minutes, you won't have to feed the parking meters. Once inside, sample an excellent range of beers, from one of the best Pilsners brewed anywhere to an impressive range of barrel-aged beers and single-batch one-offs. Widely regarded as one of the best artisanal brewers in town. The beer range has changed over the years, and there's also a pair of handpumps pulling cask ales. Still well worth seeking out.
