APEX  Don Honorable Mention WiFi available

Covid-19 saw APEX switch to credit cards. Roomy, long bar, generous beer patio. Like San Francisco's Toronado, this is something of a love-it-or-hate-it place, but the beer selection is usually first-rate. No kitchen, but take-out from neighboring Gordito's or occasional food trucks parked in front is always acceptable. Just don't climb over the fence! NOTE: Covid-19 vaccine checks are mandatory. Unvaxed are refused service and told to leave.


Roomy, rambling taproom features full range of Baerlic Brewing's beers. Kitchen is run by Ranch Pizza, doing Detroit-style slabs served with ranch dressing for dipping.


Brand new (as of December 2021) taproom, Chuckanut's first outside of Washington state. Broad selection of Chuckanut's German-inspired lagers and others.


Neighborhood beer destination since 2004, good selection on tap and hearty pub food.


Yes, it's a sandwich joint. Just look at the beer selection on the board and the beer garden. It's a beer bar too, and a very good one. Regular tap takeovers happen here and the sandwiches are some of the best in town, and go really well with beer.


Charm comma third time ... beer nerds wipe away a tear in memory of The Commons, shrug at the debacle that ended Modern Times, and now, hope for brighter days ahead with Living Häus, founded by veterans of Modern Times, Culmination Brewing, and Pfriem Brewing. The beers so far have been spot on, and food is delivered from Afuri right next door. Cavernous beer hall ambience continues undiminished.


More than twenty years in, the Lucky Lab is durably popular for pints of English-style ales and inexpensive food. It's grown into a chainlet, with three other locations around the city.


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.


Smallish functional taproom serves a range of quality house brews. Mt Tabor originally started in Portland, relocated across the Columbia to Vancouver, and is now back in Portland and one of the latest in the Buckman Brewery District.


Pub and bottle shop, well-stocked selection and well-chosen drafts.

COVID-19 restrictions mean limited seating space inside, masks worn while ordering at the bar or choosing beers from the coolers, and vaccine proof mandatory if sitting at the bar. 20220 UPDATE: BeerMongers has moved a block west, to a new space on SE 11th Avenue. Drop in and give the BeerMongers crew some support. They've earned it.
