Had a Porter at John Barleycorn's yesterday & it was well done. Probably the best beer I've had at that location. Nothing special about the property though, it just happens to be a good place to meet my web developer.

I've been to the Hotel Oregon a couple times, but it's too close to Golden Valley, which has better beer, better food and an almost as interesting bar. And a parking lot.

I have to say I love the mcmenamins a block away from my house, if only for the reason that I dug eleven 22 oz bombers out of their glass recycling bin!
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Got to spend a little time in Portland on business a few weeks back. Went to Alameda (Excellent Stout and Crab Bisque), Laurelwood(decent, but nothing spectacular) Concordia Ale House (best selection I've seen next to the Horse Brass) and the McMenamins Kennedy School. The beer was adequate, but not great. The location was beyond cool. Well worth the stop.
