Double Mountain Brewpub
| Ron Scott/EPDX

While Portland has seemingly endless options for beer consumption, not all of them offer a family-friendly environment or a full food menu. Some brewpubs are raising the bar, offering everything from dishes with game meats to a full list of brunch options.

To be clear, there are many options in Portland where people can get great beer and choose from a neighboring restaurant or food cart, but this map highlights those great brewpubs that make their own food in house.

Is your favorite spot missing from the map? Chances are, they’re already on our essential breweries map because their beer is just that good. Otherwise, you can always sound off on social media. The points on this map are not ranked; rather, they’re organized geographically.

1. Mazama Brewing

955 NE Orenco Station Loop
Hillsboro, OR 97124
(503) 352-4150
Visit Website

Mazama Brewing hails from Corvallis, and its newest Hillsboro taproom, located in the trendy Orenco Station shopping complex, has been open less than a year. Like other newer brewpubs, it’s bright and clean, flushed with natural light. What sets it apart from the others is the sophisticated brunch menu that can easily contend with any other in the area. The meal starts out with complimentary house-made warm doughnuts tossed in sugar, and from there expands into dishes like fried chicken eggs Benedict topped with smoked paprika, or the squash-and-duck chorizo hash. These brunch heavy-hitters pair well with “beermosas” (swap the orange juice for Mazama’s sour ale) and the Mazama saison, respectively.

2. Golden Valley Restaurant And Brewery

1520 NW Bethany Blvd
Beaverton, OR 97006
(503) 972-1599
Visit Website

McMinnville’s Golden Valley Brewery opened this Beaverton brewpub in 2012, with a sprawling dining room that seats 200 and a south-facing patio that can fit another 85. Its full menu and vibe certainly feel more restaurant first and brewery second, but the beers made by this old school craft brewer have been dialed in over more than 25 years, and the attention to detail by brewmaster Piper Gladwill is apparent. The portions at this family friendly brewpub are massive; for instance, the cider-brined pork schnitzel comes covered in a lemon caper brown butter and loaded up with kolsch-braised cabbage and confit fingerling potatoes. It washes down well with the Carlton Kolsch or the gold medal winning Beaverton Blonde ale.

3. Kells Brew Pub

210 NW 21st Ave
Portland, OR 97209
(503) 227-5931
Visit Website

Kells was opened in downtown Portland in 1990 by Gerard and Lucille McAleese, but in 2012 they opened a second location in Northwest and began brewing their own beer. In 2015, they hired Irish chef Dawn Farley, who revamped the menu to include classic Irish dishes with local ingredients from the Northwest — think: Irish stew or shepherd’s pie alongside pints of Irish stout or red ale. The vibe is really something special, as it feels both lively and chill at the same time. Downstairs, Kells features a cozy cigar lounge with single malt whiskeys to pair with a full list of cigars in the humidor for sale.

4. 10 Barrel Brewing

The industrial and heavy wood interior of 10 Barrel’s Pearl District brewpub highlights the bar inside, but the hip rooftop patio is the real star in the summers — drinkers can expect very little elbow room on warm days. Though 10 Barrel’s main brewery is in Bend, brewmaster Whitney Burnside keeps the Pearl location’s 20 barrel system pumping out favorites like Apocalypse IPA and Pearl DIPA. The kitchen serves hungry locals everything from typical pizza-and-burger pub grub to Thai curry mussels and Nashville hot chicken.

5. Deschutes Brewery & Public House

Copy Link
210 NW 11th Ave
Portland, OR 97209
(503) 296-4906
Visit Website

It’s certainly no secret that Deschutes is an OG in the Oregon brewing scene. It produces hundreds of thousands of barrels of beer annually, and its beers are distributed nationwide. Beers like Chainbreaker White IPA and Black Butte Porter define the styles in their categories, and as such are used as benchmarks by which judges at brewing competitions evaluate contenders. The pub’s spicy fried chicken and waffles packs a bit of heat offset by the sweetness of the maple gastrique and kale atop a sourdough waffle, and the garlic fries —tossed in a rosemary-orange aioli and topped with shredded manchego— have the potential to ward off vampires from 100 yards. Though it looks very different today, this former autobody shop dates back to 1919, with reclaimed wood and forest-lodge feel.

6. Ecliptic Brewing

825 N Cook St
Portland, OR 97227

Visit Website

What sets Ecliptic Brewing apart from the rest in Portland isn’t just the astronomy theme, or the giant patio: What really puts it on the map is the food menu. While patrons here have the option of multiple favorites and flagships — like the well made and balanced Phaser Hazy IPA or the tart and fruity Carina Peach Sour — they can also chow down on some exceptional dishes like broiled oysters served with a bacon and shrimp bechamel or pan-roasted chicken in hot and sour egg drop soup. Ecliptic has a truly elevated brewery menu, and customers here can work their way through it while soaking in the sun through large windows all around the building, or outside on the large, dog-friendly patio.

7. Modern Times Belmont Fermentorium

630 SE Belmont St

Visit Website

As a brewpub in Portland featuring an all-vegan menu, San Diego-based brewery Modern Times offers something different for folks looking for snacks and hearty meals with their craft beer. Even as out-of-towners, Modern Times has shown that it is willing to be an active participant in the local scene. It has collaborated with multiple smaller breweries in the area. Vegan specialties like the beyond sausage-chorizo burrito and “cheesy” croquettes bring a ton of taste without the cholesterol to accompany a full range of beers from the crushable Ice pilsner to big barrel-aged pastry stouts for dessert.

Portland, OR 97202
(503) 946-8090
Visit Website

One of the newest on the scene in Portland, Vagabond Brewing is a brewpub that comes by way of its home base in Salem. This brewpub, however has a look and feel all its own, as it has an actual airplane inside the taproom, and a new logo to match. Its street tacos are some of the best to be found at any brewpub in town, and it features a solid lineup of beers from saisons to sours. It’s also one of the only brewpubs in Portland with a wicked brunch menu, offered from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. Vagabond welcomes families, and offers a full kids’ menu. The taproom and the beer glasses are filled to the brim on UFC fight nights.

9. Hopworks Urban Brewery

2944 SE Powell Blvd
Portland, OR 97202
(503) 232-4677
Visit Website

As one of the pioneers of organic beer in Portland, Hopworks Urban Brewery has been a mainstay on Powell for 12 years now. Its taphouse features upper and lower levels, a kids’ play area fully stocked with toys, and 20 taps full of IPAs (both hazy and traditional west coast-style), stouts, and even a house-made cider. Here, diners can crush bar snacks like wings and warm pretzels, but it’s the calzones that make this a necessary stop for the hungry. The warm baked crust is practically bursting with organic marinara, herbs, and a seemingly endless selection of other toppings. On Friday evenings and weekends, this place fills with families and Hopworks does not take reservations during these times due to limited seating

10. Double Mountain Taproom

Portland, OR 97206

Visit Website

Hailing from the beautiful small town of Hood River nestled in the picturesque Columbia Gorge comes Double Mountain Brewery. The pizza at the Woodstock area brewpub seems to demand other brewpubs to step up their pizza game: Pies come fiery hot out of a brick oven that approaches 750 degrees, and it even features a collaboration with local wing champs Fire on the Mountain: a pizza with hot wing sauce, bleu cheese, and chicken breast. The margherita, though classic and simple, is an absolute winner and pairs perfectly with Vaporizer Pale Ale, a dry and light ale with herbal notes from the addition of challenger hops. Inside seats around 150, while outside adds room for an additional 60 pizza lovers.

11. Fire on the Mountain

3443 NE 57th Ave
Portland, OR 97213

Fire on the Mountain is well-known as the foremost wing stop in Portland, and for good reason. It’s getting into its 15th year in operation, and now boasts three locations in the city. Since 2011, it has operated a small, seven-barrel brewing system, brewing up lagers and ales to wash down the sauce-soaked chicken wings. Speaking of sauces, diners have the option of a range of flavors from spicy peanut to lime-cilantro, and of course: buffalo-style, ranging from mild to extra-hot. It also offers a full menu of options beyond wings, including burgers, fries, and salads.

12. Assembly Brewing

6112 SE Foster Rd
Portland, OR 97206
(971) 888-5973
Visit Website

This Southeast Portland brewery, with its small patio and roomy, industrial interior, is perhaps more noteworthy for its pizzas than its beer. While the brewery’s no-nonsense beers — crisp, easy drinkers from a simple wheat to its tropical IPA — are great on a hot day, the restaurant’s real-deal Detroit-style pizzas, loaded with cheese and topped with dollops of lipstick-red tomato sauce, are ideal for really any day. Note: Assembly is 21+, so families will have to hit Double Mountain if they’re looking for pizza and beer.
