I love Ninkasi, but there are two problems - it is not in Portland so I can't get there often and I have had some inconsistent total domination IPA on tap and in 22's. BUT the Tricerahops is one of my favorite IPA's
You cant beat the Czech Lager at HUB. It is great. Also, I love the food and the family environment. My 3 year old son loves playing with the train set and the dinosaurs while we wait for our table or for food. Ive been there twice and havent had a bad experience yet.
Also, their brewers are very cool. I cloned one of their beers and brought a sample to them and got an email back within a couple of days with tasting notes and feedback. it was great!
Wakonda is definitely my newest fav! I recently moved to Reedsport and have found that their is not many brewers in the area. Wakonda is a nice place to go BS about good beer despite the tap room is "interesting".
