Set significantly apart from the crowded streets of Portland, Mast Landing has made a name for itself since it opened in 2015. It has its enviable selection of IPAs and Kolsches to thank for that—standouts like the well-balanced Saccarappa with its tropical notes, and the bright and floral Everybody/Everywhere. The place also has its own food truck called Mainstay, which on weekends whips up homemade sandwiches and other beer-friendly fixings (the confit chicken wings are killer).
The beer you shouldn’t skip: Milk stout fans shouldn’t bypass Gunner’s Daughter, a dark, chocolatey, and malty brew laced with notes of peanut butter, but doesn’t contain peanuts.
COVID-19 protocols: The indoor tasting room is open with limited seating, and outdoors are picnic tables. Outdoor igloos can also be reserved in advance. Curbside pickup and local delivery are also available.
