Concierge.com's insider take:
Many die-hard local beer aficionados consider Lucky Lab to be the quintessential Portland pub. The microbrewery is housed in a cavernous old warehouse with exposed wooden rafters and a bar that extends almost the entire length of one wall. Sparsely decorated with paintings of the eponymous canines, this extremely casual pub serves up excellent pints and straightforward sandwiches to a loyal crowd. Beer lovers will want to sample a cask-conditioned ale (a process that results in reduced carbonation and increased flavor) or a beer from the nitro tap (which produces finer carbonation than carbon dioxide for a smoother taste). In good weather, locals kick back on the covered outdoor patio. Dogs, of course, are very welcome.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 11 am to midnight, Sundays noon to 10 pm.
