Dulcie and Aylwin's big beer adventure last day in Portland. One of my students had told me about Laurelwood and when we found it was close to Dulcie's parents we made an effort to try it; compared with many of the Portland landmarks, it doesn't tend to come up in conversation.
The building on Sandy, again dead easy to park by and find, is quite new; it recently replaced another long-time establishment. Clean sort of pine thing inside and the brewery stuff visible behind the bar. Lots of families with kids here. TVs in evidence (not common in Portland beer places) but no sound, no grating music either.
We tried the two IPAs and the Workhorse kicked the Boss by a mile. Dulcie rated it the best Portland IPA she had had this visit. I'm not sure I would go that far but it is was very good. Prices at the right time are ridiculously low. We dined on a couple of appetizers and the bill was well under $20. It could be a great local for those living in the area - which we wished we did.

Laurelwood has been great on multiple occasions for me. I love going there with a close friend, or a group. I've also purchased a keg there in the past, at the last minute for a friends party…and afterward, it was such a hit that I had to go back. I usually go for a tree hugger or space stout, but love to try whatever is new!
The service is always great there, the people seem light-hearted and happy to be there. The food is awesome (my personal favorite the pulled pork sandwich, and their amazing cheesy garlicky fries!), and they have some really rocking apparel to get on your way out. I love this place so much, and am happy to see the two locations in the Portland Airport now…I take some back east with me every time I fly! Too bad I haven't been able to crack open a growler on the plane ;)
Thanks for being one of my very favorites!

Stopped by for zwickelmania today. Laurelwood has the feel of an average size pub. While they have a decent restaurant operation inside, they have a packed brewing operation in the back half of the building. I had a pint of workhorse up at the bar, the bartenders there were nice, clearly had some knowlege of beer which I always appreciate. The beers they had on tap were about 8-10 of their regulars plus a 3-4 seasonals. Lots of bottles are available to-go. Though I didn't have any food while I was there, I did notice quite a few people eating lunch, so I am guessing the food is decent. I enjoy laurelwood's beers and their location is decent too, I'll likely be heading back in the future.

One thing I loved about this place was the pervasive aroma of wort that filled my nasal cavity before I even walked through the door. Laurelwood is a medium-sized venue, with the bar just adjacent to the brewing area, and lots of table room. Average restauranty, comfort dining atmosphere; no real dismal barfly charm here. Service was pretty slow all around; the bartender was nice enough, but seemingly way in over her head for the crowd she had to attend to, and the staff at the cashier/merch stand were surprisingly inept...but it was all still within a reasonable threshold of tolerance. Beer selection was good, with a decent range of house-brewed options available. Nothing really stood out as extraordinary, but nothing was really bad. Food was good; mainly comfort items on the menu with perhaps just a slight bias towards TexMex. Prices were reasonable. A good stop on our trip, but not necessarily a "beer connoisseur's" paradise.

This seemed to be a popular place, as the lot was full and I had to park blocks away. I bought a flight and most were solid, but the Workhorse IPA might have been the best I tried out of the many I had on the coast. As I type this, I wish I had bought more than two bottles, as they did not last long. Place had a good neighborhood vibe, filled with locals who enjoy a good beer. I didn't have any food and am unsure they have good. The selection was ok, as it seems most if all their choices leaned on the safer side of things. I probably would stop here again... no I would because I would have to get another fresh Workhorse again.
