1. Migration Brewing 2828 NE Glisan St, Portland, OR 97232

NE Glisan's Migration Brewing is the result of four friends taking their shared passion for beer and doing something about it. Since opening in the fall of 2008, MB has been guided by this initial passion and a strong community connection, serving customers their home-brewed beers on tap alongside delicious food dishes, which include pulled pork sandwiches, club sandwiches, and a number of pizza options.

2. Hair of the Dog Brewery 61 SE Yamhill St, Portland, OR 97214

Hair of the Dog works to obtain local ingredients for all of its brews, which is great for the community. It's also great for the people who drink their beers, with 8 on-tap selections to choose from at their taproom. Growler refills are available for 5 of them, in case you're the kind of person who likes to stock up for the winter.

The hot and spicy wings at this joint claim to be the best "this side of Buffalo" -- check 'em out for yourself and see if they're right.

4. Burnside Brewing Co. 701 E Burnside St, Portland, OR 97214

Beers produced at Burnside Brewery are unfiltered and cleaned of particulates using a lagering process. In layman's terms, this means that the beer takes longer to make but tastes like liquid sunshine. The menu features a selection of cured meats and charcuterie that has been meticulously paired with the beers on offer.

6. Laurelwood SE Public House 6716 SE Milwaukie Ave, Portland, OR 97202

They already had locations in other parts of the city, but the folks behind the Laurelwood Public House chain decided to open one up in the Westmoreland area of SE PDX. Despite a new location, they haven't messed with their winning formula of great beer ($10 for a sampler tray!) and awesome bar food that redefines bar food -- fish tacos, fried mozzarella, Greek lamb gyros, and Kobe beef burgers.

7. Ecliptic Brewing 825 N Cook St, Portland, OR 97227

John Harris's newly opened spot has classic American bar eats like sandwiches, and starters and mains like sweet & spicy chicken drumsticks and fish & chips. Oh, and beer. They've got 4 of their own on tap right now, with seasonal rotations.

8. Lucky Labrador Brew Pub 915 SE Hawthorne Blvd, Portland, OR 97214

Sporting dark hardwood floors and beamed ceilings, plus a neighborly vibe, Lucky Lab’s digs are as warm and inviting as the breed after which it's named. You'll find yourself right at home as you munch on pub food and house-made brews like Black Lab Stout, Hawthorne's Best Bitter, and Dog Day IPA. You might've guessed, but all four locations, including this Hawthorne spot, are dog-friendly, so be sure to bring your pup with you (water bowls and photo-ops abound).
