    Awesome, 100% gluten free place. We had the pizza and charcuterie plate and it was to die for. Even better was the GF ICE CREAM SANDWICH we had afterward. Tons of gf beer choices, and staff was kind and chatty and knowledgable!

    Most menu items I’ve tried are just so-so. The beer is amazing, though. And the fried chicken on Sundays.

    I have Celiacs and 5 major food allergies that force me to follow a strict Paleo diet. I was able to eat a delicious dinner here with my family without having a reaction. I highly recommend this place for those that have to eat gf and/or have food allergies.

    Delicious grass fed burger with pickled red onions and greens (sans tomato marmelade and b&b pickles). I am not a fan of grainy or spicy mustard usually so I asked for the homemade beer mustard on the side; I tried it and it was really good! There was something salty on the burger or the bun that gave me a few bites of "whoa thats salty". But otherwise it was awesome! I had a sampler of four beers. And I liked them all. Tasty like regular (glutenous) beers. Which I cannot drink anymore since going gf. The huckleberry rhubarb cobbler was divine! I have hashimotos and so eat 75% paleo and indulge in the occasional homemade gluten free baked good because I'm picky about the flavor of the gf breads. Coming from an out of state town where there are very few gf restaurants or paleo friendly places, this was a real treat!

    So nice to be in a place where I had no fear about the food or drinks! Unfortunately the food was so salty it was almost inedible. We had ordered a pickle plate (which we expected to be that salty), the mussels (which are usually salty also) but the house salad looked like a handful of salt had been added to it and was almost inedible because of it, which was a shame because it was a plate of beautiful, fresh greens. The main courses- the chicken and dumpling soup and the tacos were delicious though. I wanted to completely love it, but couldn’t because of the salt.

    The food was amazing and Zi tried all of their beers on tap and there was only one I didn't care for. You also could not tell they were Gluten Free. The Cubano was our favorite. We are from out of town and wish we could come back.

    Foods a bit ”earthy”... Service wasn’t that great either. Safe place to eat, (gluten free)... but I don’t think we will be back.

    This place the best gluten-free beer that I've had in the US, no exaggeration! The food was also very good. This is a casual place with better pub fare than typical. Dedicated gluten free, superior safety too and I'm a celiac. I can't wait to go back.

    The whole time I was eating here, I kept thinking I can't believe how incredible this is. We had the sourdough corn bread and pizza. The sourdough corn bread is a must.

    We pretty much ordered everything on the menu that is vegan or vegetarian. Overall, food was good. I didn't mind the salt on the salad. The gf pizza crust is definitely not the best crust, but better than I expected based on an earlier review I read and how it looked. Beer was good too. Wild Mushroom and Lentil Chili was one of our favorites. The sampler gives you 8 small glasses, so that was nice. Overall, it was good experience and we'd go back again.

    The pizza crust was gross. We've had much better at CPK. The baguette was underbaked, maybe? Very chewy, weird texture. Everything was over salted. (HOW is a salad salty?!?!) The waitress got a drink order and two of our entrees wrong. Not impressed. We were really excited based on other reviews, but instead, spent quite a bit of money on a disastrous meal.

    I'll be honest---I cried a little when I ate the baguette. It was the best bread I've had since going gluten free. I don't like beer, but my husband who is not gluten free said it was fabulous. The food was amazing and my favorite (behind the baguette) was the cherry turnover. It was the best feeling to go into a restaurant without any worry and have amazing food. This place is a must visit if you are gluten free.

    This gets five stars for the beer. I shared an 8 taste flight and they were all amazing! Just like real beer. The fried chicken bowl and Cuban sandwich were both top notch, but the menu is very limited and portions are not large. The vibe is more like a small neighborhood diner, than a pub and this part of town is an industrial mix with an urban winery across the street.

    Fantastic food and beverage in a dedicated facility! Had the grass fed beef burger and it was incredible! Next time I'm trying a lamb dish- super excellent food, lovely service and a nice atmosphere. I do wish they were open a little later than 9, but I will be back. Best kale chips ever, too!

    This place is amazing. It's nice to walk into a restaurant and know that not only is the menu gluten free but the beer is gluten free as well. My husband can have wheat and is a beer drinker. He tried this place and he loved the beer so much he got a growler.

    Very good gf beers. Their classics are great and the rotating beers are always very... complex in flavor (Very Portland). They have several tasty menu items. The portions are sort of small, but the quality makes up for it. The facility is strictly gluten free so risk of cross contamination is as low as it gets. They are also good with other dietary restrictions.

    Classic Portland vibe, and absolutely 100% Celiac safe. One of the very rare spots where a Celiac can look at the entire menu (beer included!) and have the choice of anything! Some of the best GF breads I've had, as well.

    I wanted to like this place so badly. 100% gf places are hard to come by. But the food was terrible. No flavor at all. Not sure they even own a salt shaker. The only spice I could taste was the burning of my mouth from the over use of some red pepper in everything. The cornbread was inedible as it was a gooey mess. Not cooked at all (maybe way too much xanthan gum/starch?). I did like the side slaw that came with my sandwich & the ginger soda. Other than that our food for 4 plus starters was a bust. :(. I didn't try the beer, but hear it's great. Maybe worth it for beer drinkers?

    Loved having so many options! Sadly the fried chicken is only served for lunch driving the week, but had tacos and a beer sampler. Staff was awesome and great to talk to at the bar.
