Deschutes also recently opened their new brewpub in the Pearl District (210 NW 11th Avenue). You just might find the Abyss on tap there right now. And right around the corner from Deschutes is Henry's 12th St. Tavern (10 NW 12th Ave) with 100 taps and a killer happy hour menu that will surely fill you up.

I do not live in portland.

But dont they have a McMennimans (sp?) up there? I have only been to the one in Bend. The one in bend had a pool, movie theater, and a few different bars. All in one place.

Trying to find a McMenamins in Portland is like trying to find a Starbucks in Seattle...

There are a few

Damn, that is one nice beer menu! I wonder if I can fit in a stop there, and one around the corner at Rogue? Hmmmm....

Yep, McMenamins is up here, and there's one downtown somewhere. Out of Of Bridgeport, Rogue and Hopworks I'd say Rogue is the way to go. Bridgeport seems to have lost it's homey effects and is now decorated in uber-modern,(all glass and steel, with the old brickwork underneath) I've eaten at Rogue, it's good food, great beer and you can get Old Crustacean in ceramic bottles there. I managed to find a 2006, which will be opened in two weeks/ I've never been to hopworks, so I dunno how dinner is there.

I've been to the Deschutes brewery in Bend, and they had Abyss on tap. They serve it in a small snifter, and at 11%, they better!

All very good suggestions. I personally think the food at Widmer is excellent and the beers are good as well. Hopworks is a great place but a smashing success and a bit hard to get into sometimes. Rogue, Dechutes, Bridgeport, Rock Bottom, and Tugboat are all brewpubs in Downtown (Full Sail only has a brewery but not a pub in Downtown). Henry's has so many taps it is hard not to find something good. On the East side (where your hotel is located) are Widmer, Lucky Lab, Roots, and Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) brewpubs. Of course if you want to expand your list to great pubs, the Horse Brass, Green Dragon, and the Concordia Ale house are all worth a trip. You have a lot of choices within the inner city. McMinimums pubs are all over the place (20-30 of them). I know, kind of hard to choose. For sure use MAX. I think the first stop on the airport line from your hotel is Widmer (Interstate).

Best

+ for Henry's I hear really good things and the food at Dechutes is good just a little on the pricey side however you just might be able to get Abyss which would be worth it. Hopworks is busy but has good food and decent beer although to be honest if you really want to get a great selection I think you can't go wrong with Henry's and it's close to downtown which is probably the best thing for you.

Well, looking at the menu and especially the beer menu I think I'll be stopping at Henry's. Very nice selection of brew, and with 100 taps the only problem will be deciding what to order . And, it's just about 2 miles from my hotel so a short cab ride will do the trick. If anyone wants to meet up on Weds night, send a PM! Cheers!
