Breakside brewing is our current favorite. A well-designed space with a fantastic, often IPA-heavy, taplist will keep you entertained for hours. The food is solid, too—you’ve got to try the pretzel. A great spot to hit if you’re exploring NW23rd.

EX NOVO, the smallest brewery on this list, is a not-for-profit brewery—so your drinking actually does good! Their deep-dish pizza is pretty awesome, too!

Portland is pretty much the best beer city. We’re proud of that. Kyle’s pretty into beer, so if you want specific recommendations, just ask.
If you’d like a guided beer tour, Brewvana has a great reputation.
