Alameda Brewing has an inviting street presence with a brick facade and an awning shading tables on the sidewalk. Behind two nice tall oak doors, you enter a fairly large, two-story high room. The front wall is brick with full windows all across and the remaining walls are cinder block. The ceiling is silver-colored insulation with hanging gray metal light fixtures and the floor is concrete. Black beer-related designs (hops, brewing tools, etc.) decorate burlap wall hangings on both sides. Overall, it feels modern, relaxed, and comfortable.

A very long curved corrugated aluminum bar with a light wooden surface and lined with black padded chrome bar stools divides the left half of the room from the dining area, which is filled with light wooden tables with metal tops and matching wooden chairs. In addition, an attractive series of tall structures fashioned from long 2x2‘s along the right wall forms a row of booths with padded benches.

Behind the bar is a fairly small brew kettle and mash tun (no glass separation), and further back is a refrigeration room with the serving tanks.

There are six regular house-made beers: a golden ale, a pale, an IPA, an imperial IPA, a porter, and a stout. They also have four rotating seasonals. On our visit, the El Torero IPA and Cascadian Coal CDA were quite good.

Growler fills are available.

This is a newer brewery with excellent amenities- very open, large bar, good outdoor seating and the metal hop on the outside let's you know what you are in for.

I unfortunately only had time to try a few beers but the porter and IPA were both solid. The root beer was also quite good. Looked at the menu, it had a number of interesting selections including the previously mentioned vegan burger using spent grain.

I definitely would like to give this place a shot, although it is a bit of a hike to get to this place from downtown Portland. I was there mid day during a weekday, we were the only people in the place and the service was far from stellar considering they had no one else to serve. Also, the pints and logo pint glasses were a little more expensive than the norm.

A great place. Hey the huge Hop on the outside was awesome to see. It was an old warehouse made in to a killer brew pub. Loved the atmosphere. The beer was great and the food was above the rest and finally great service in a brewpub. This was a great time for us all. 10 samples on the sampler tray to try. The parking at times can be a tad hairy and they have a huge kids area so it is cool to bring the little ones.

Alameda Brewhouse is rated by www.hopsandbarleyblog.com as the #3 location for beer in Portland!

Their beer selection is predominately their own and brewed onsite with the occasional guest tap. They usually have 2-4 seasonals - definitely get Papa Noel's Olde Ale in the winter - on top of their standard 7 House Ales.

The Black Bear XX Stout and Irvington Juniper Porter are both exquisite. I also recommend the Turk's Head ESB and Wasco Indian Summer (ISA) Ale for hop luvvas.

The best part is that the kitchen expertise matches that of the brewers. Alameda is a wonderful overall eat, drink and be merry experience. A must hit for any beer luvva in PDX.

I visited Alemeda with my Beaverton-based brother (himself a brewmaster). We arrived in a Portland-quality rainstorm and I was ready for a cold beer and hot food. We recieved a warm reception and were treated to great beer and pretty good food.

I went with the Turk's Head ESB and a salmon salad, both great picks. The atmosphere of Alemeda is great--open and friendly. I think next time (and there WILL be a next time for this one!) I'd like to sit at the bar and swill a few...it was active and fun-looking place.

Annoyances: The interior was a little Spartan for me, they could "warm it up" a bit.

Nice neighborhood pub with good size bar, many tables and booths. Some outside seating and a few TVs. Parking seemed to be on the street.
Good range of house brews. I enjoyed the ISA and the Porter. There were a lot more tap handles than the listed house brews so I assume the others were guest beers but I didn't see or hear any details.
The food was excellent. Nice selection of appetizers, salads and entrees (many feature their brews). I particularly enjoyed the chocolate stout milkshake. They also have a vegi-burger made from their own spent grain.
