With the October return of seasonal damp and chilly weather, our neighborhood brewpubs can offer a warm and comforting respite. Portland is often referred to as the “beer capital of the world,” and brewpubs have been integral to Northeast and North Portland culture and nightlife for over three decades now. Many neighborhood breweries have become famous for their craft beers and ship their product all over the globe. While each pub is unique, with its own theme and dynamic, they all serve food – often organic and locally sourced – and are almost always family-friendly, with many offering play areas for children. Brewpubs tend to care about the food they serve just as much as they care about crafting the perfect beer. Following are some longtime neighborhood favorites, plus a few newcomers with potential.
