    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.

    Loved my Cubano sandwich and GF beer tastings. Bought 2 growlettes to bring home with me.

    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?

    This is the best GF beer I've ever tasted! Just as good as the real stuff. And the food was great too, so nice to have a dedicated GF brewery and restaurant and be able to order anything. All of our non-Celiac friends who came with us loved their food and beers too -- which is rare!

    Amazing!! GF dream turned reality. Delivers big on taste. Baugette and cornbread make up for the real thing. While bread pudding will satisfy that long awaited GF desire, the almond cake financier is fit for any big city gourmet tasting menu. Oh yes, the beer...you can't even tell it's GF...try the flight because you just can't do that anywhere else. Went at 1:30 p.m. on a Saturday and place was turning tables. It's legit.

    A celiac's dream come true! We had the charcuterie tray (meats, cheeses, delicious bread, pickled vegetables, mustard, spiced hazelnuts), a burger, bread pudding and the beer taster tray. Everything was not only safe but FABULOUS! Thank you Ground Breaker!

    Amazing. Dedicated facility. The beers are by far the best gf beers I've ever had and even beat out some traditional (barley-brewed) beers in my opinion (I've only been gf a few years, hubby homebrews, and likes many a craft beer - I've tried a lot of great brews!). The food is always great (standard menu, burger Tuesday, or the special Wednesday Suppers). Never disappointed. And my daughter loves the pickles!

    We drove into the city from Hood River. Everything we had was delicious. We had the fish tacos, kale salad, honey almond cake with apple granita, and the chocolate chip cookies with lemon coconut milk pudding. All that great tasting gluten free food, what a treat. We will definitely return, whenever we are in Portland

    This is a dedicated gluten free facility! The beer was great and the food was fantastic as well. I have additional food sensitivities and our server was very helpful in accomodating my needs. The only downside is that I don't live anywhere near Portland, OR. I will definitely seek them out again the next time I pass through. Here's a tip: I found out if you go on their website you can be directed to where you can order their beer online!
