17. Horse Brass Pub

Like with so many things in Portland, Horse Brass Pub is all about the craft. Their 50 taps come in Scooners or the high walls of the imperial pint's 20 ounces. They have done well to copy the British pub in its every detail, and then some. Their food is slow and right, with locally sourced ingredients going into those beautifully heavy meat pies and fish and chips. Of course, they have a sampling of some of the Northwests finest and a hip atmosphere that keeps the rafters packed.
