Great little brewpub in Portland's NW side offers a selection of about 7 or so beers as well as a selection of beers brewed off premisis. The beers were solid examples of each style with nothing jumping out as exceptional except the C-Note Imperial IPA which a refreshing deviation from the norms of the style. The service was alright but the place was busy and I was by myself taking up an entire booth so I could understand why the wait staff wanted me to just spend my money and leave. However the beer and the bar food kept me in my seat for at least an hour as I worked my way through a couple pints. A great place to visit when you are in Portland.

My first few visits to the New Old Lompoc were unsuccessful. Several beers were flat, few were interesting, and the cigarette smoke was a big turnoff. Ive since returned on numerous occasions throughout the year and discovered some exciting, charismatic beers the kind that haunt you with their enduring appeal and mandate repeat visits to the pub. And while I still find flat beers more often than I care to here, the lure of yet another fabulous beer awaiting discovery keeps me coming back.
The New Old Lompoc has a long history in Portland, mostly as The Old Lompoc House whose name is derived from a W.C. Fields / May West movie. Its present incarnation was opened in 2000 at the north end of NW 23rd Ave in a transitional area where "Trendy-Third" fades into an industrial zone. The crowd is young, the atmosphere low key and hip. The decor is funky and tasteful with faux-Tiffany lampshades, historic Portland photos, and tasteful beer and coffee iconography.
The brewpub sits (apparently) in an old house, creating a small, cozy and bohemian vibe. Theyve even retained the original pull chain toilets. Neon is limited to a few window displays, and there are lit candles on every table. Five or six video poker games roost in the rear but no one was playing them last Saturday. New Old Lompoc is more than a bit smoky. In fact, its easily one of the smokiest brewpubs in the state (along with Tucks). If you cant take the smoke you may wish to visit The Hedge House on Division Street. This is New Old Lompocs secondary outpost where their beer is served but not brewed. The beer garden behind Lompoc may also offer some respite from the smoke during its seasonal occupancy.
Two beer engines usually sit unused at Lompoc while a dozen guest taps are typically pouring, including some less-common northwest micros like Caldera or Mia & Pias. Seasonal offerings are frequently excellent; beer specials abound. The service at Lompoc is invariably sexy, friendly, hip, beautiful, sexy, and very attentive and fabulous and beautiful. An elk head mounted on the wall appears to be the only creature in the house watching television.

After trying the C-note at another pub, we decided to try New Old Lompoc and its beers first hand. Its a quaint location, and blends into the neighborhood quite well, despite being painted yellow. The inside is remeniscent of an old country road house or inn, and was nice. We ended up eating on the patio because it was so nice out. The patio was covered, partially by grapes, and was very pleasant.
Our wait staff was attentive and had recommendations for which beers to try. The food was nouveau pub faire, and was quite good.
The beer selection was also good. There were 8 brewed on site selections plus roughly 8 guest taps of interest. The brews from Lompoc itself are quite good, and you can find the reviews in the Review section of the site.
