Tried it from friend recommendations. Wow. Loved the beer and the food. We started with a couple 10.5 ounce beers while waiting for our table. The ABV is high, so didn’t take long to feel the effect. We started with the JB DIPA and the...More

Some of the best and unique beer in town. Food is okay, some things are amazing like the burger, fries and salmon burger. The salads aren't my favorite. This is one of our favortie go to spots.

My husband is a beer fanatic. We try beer everywhere we go and living in San Diego we have access to a lot of quality beer. However, it wasn't until Great Notion in Portland that I found what I really like -- Hazy, Juicy, IPAs....More

The staff is stiff. No substitutions allowed, cant even 86 the sides. I was the DD for a party of nine, so i couldnt get drunk prior to eating the food, but i can see that i needed to. The Blackened Salmon Burger is creative,...More

OUTSTANDING craft brewery with an attractive and inviting tasting room of decent size, a wide variety of rather unique beers (approx 20, ranging from fruity sours to a dark stouts), and a tasty menu hosting an array of above average pub fare. The service was...More

Went back to this spot for a late lunch, and first time eating there. Ordered the wings and the Dirty Quinoa Salad - both delicious, and spicy. Better for cooling off with tasters of Ripe (hazy IPA) and Peanut Brother and Chocolate Covered Strawberry (both...More
