Pubs on 6 Bus Line

Original home of Breakside, comfortable neighborhood pub with good range of own beers on tap, good pub food, and bottles to go.


The pub that brought Portland's emergence in the sour-beer world into sharp focus. Fans of sour beer - particularly beers inspired by Belgium's Flanders reds and browns - should consider this a must-visit.


UPDATE: Get in here soon! HotD's last day of operation is June 26th, 2022! COVID-19 update: taproom re-opened. Masks off only when seated.

More than two and a half decades in, Hair of the Dog's beers have gained recognition far beyond Portland, but production remains deliberately small-scale, and the brewery's own tasting room is the best place to find and enjoy the exceptional range of house beers on offer. Food is good, too.


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.


Although it's not obvious after the extensive (and, some would opine, insensitive) 2008 remodel, the Row has decades of history behind it. This was an original Portland good beer bar, from back in the 1970s when it was owned by the brothers McMenamin to the present day, after three more changes of ownership. Beer selection is good, there's plenty of pub food, and there's plenty of space in the big patio out back. The Produce Row ain't what it once was, but it's still a worthwhile beer venue, and has good proximity to a couple of other beers spots too.


Big rambling pub and beer garden a short walk from the Commons and Cascade Barrel House. Formerly the Green Dragon, major remodeling and rebranding has done away with the old and in with the Rogue, heavy on house beers plus 19 guest taps.


Portland's idea of a beer hall is huge, and so is the selection. 99 taps pour a primarily Oregon-focused selection, plus occasional out-of-state "guests." In a state with more than 220 breweries, that almost makes sense. Food is simple, with sausages from Olympia Provisions on a pretzel bun, and a few other beer-friendly items. The bar abandoned its cash-only, no-tipping policy and accepts credit cards.


Wayfinder Beer A Don top pick  Full menu available. WiFi available Brewpub. New entry in the Guide in 2016 Specializes in German Beer and German Styles

COVID-19 Update: limited opening days and hours, and outdoor operation only on deck and streetside "parklet." Reduced menu, but plenty of good beer.

The buzz building up in anticipation of Wayfinder's opening built up to a roar in Portland, right up to its opening day on October 1, 2016. The buzz hasn't subsided. The brewery is focused on lagers, with equipment available to do decoction mashing. The menu is all about good pub food. The expansive outdoor deck is a must on a fine day. Put this one on your short list of must-visit Portland brewpubs.

2017 Update: in June 2017, Wayfinder's house brewed beers made their debut. Brewer Kevin Davey is turning out the kinds of beers that will quickly develop an avid following.
