Really kind folks here-- and make sure you sit in the corner where the hand-made "Portal Game" is with die and gamepieces, a fun way to pass time with your drinks! Food was surprisingly delicious for the size of this place! Great IPA and they brought over tasters without asking and were spot-on with timing and service.

We went right when they opened and were the only customers. The beers were great, the food was yummy, the ambiance was cozy and fun. The service was excellent. You can tell they have a passion for brewing!

The beer is average, but so nice having a local beer actually brewed in this city. The food offerings are sparse but there is food! Service couldn't be better! The 3 rating is for the beer quality.

Love the stout! Great Grilled Cheese (The Lumberjack?). Fun & fresh menu options! Didn't like - seating is really tight.

When we moved here and asked people about Portal, very few seemed to be aware of it. We were excited to try a small, local microbrew, but after going on 3 occasions, I understand why it is not more known. The family that operates the business is very proud and intelligent. I have faith that as they continue they will... More

Small, but quaint and friendly. I loved it. They are generous with their samples and the selection is good. I would recommend. We ordered food and each member of our party was satisfied.

Cool little pub - wish it was right down the block from my house - friendly staff. GREAT BEER! Get the sausage pretzel that comes with cheese and bacon. Sooooooo good! Had fun sampling different beers. I will be back for sure to play drunken spelling or trivia.

A+ for local brewery experience. Small, quaint, personable. Great beer. Knowledgable staff (family run and they make the beer in their backyard! [how legit!]). Nice little taproom. Food menu is good but limited (as expected for brewery). Taps rotate a lot so you could have a new flight weekly pretty much.

My hubby and I stopped by Portal Brewing Company Saturday, March 8, 2014. We were pleasantly surprised by the smallness of the place and comfy atmosphere. The pub offers 13 of their delicious beers on tap and one guest cider. I just love it when you visit a brewery and all their beer is available. Since I love bitter and... More
