I'm not sure what this says about my past life identities, but I have a real affinity for secretish spots located down dark alleys, and this downtown brewery fits the bill. Love the casual nautical-themed space, the robust British-style ales, and the late hours.

The Portland brewery even beer nerds don't know about. That usually works in their favor as the clientele supersedes the brews sometimes, but do not miss out on a half pint of Chernobyl Russian Imperial Stout. Nyet.

Hit and miss – I've been to the Tugboat a few times now and I've had a variety of experiences. Sometimes the beer and music is good, but a couple of times like last night I've had terrible beer and sat through the worst music I've ever heard. The beer I had (IPA) was ok, but not great. My friends had the American Pale Ale and the Porter, both of which I tried, and they were awful. They tasted like someone mixed the beer with lemon juice--sour and tart. But the music was even worse. It was a so-called "jazz" group which seemed to be few random guys playing random notes against a random beat. It was as if they were trying to make people leave, and they succeeded. The sax player purposely made squeaking noises, etc.

worst beer + worst service – The beer: flat homebrew with wet cardboard undertones. Mix one rude bartender dude with dark and dank ambiance.

dont bother, you're not missing anything here

Thankyou – This is more a thank you as wella review. Almost a year ago I broke down on my motorcycle in front of the TUGBOAT BWRY. and the owner.(sorry hun but I forgot your name) was the most helful and kind individual I have had the pleasure to meet in a long time. This I think also reflects in the atmosphere and quality of service and product that you recieve at this quaint pub & eatery. I am so glad to have found this web page and have the ability to express my appreciation of this marvelous establishment and it owners. Best of luck and thankyou

Can't ask for anything more! – No glam... no foofy drinks... it's genuine & laid back... the service is great - you can ask the bartender exactly what your taste buds are craving for & without hesitation, he'll slide a full glass down the counter right at the aim of your hand. The best thing about this place is that it isn't always consistent. Besides the regulars & the bartender... every night there's a different feel. The music, the people, etc. In Portland there are many hip, trendy & over priced bars... this place will make you feel like you're back "home" again.

Library Bar – This is a neat little place with a friendly staff. It was full the evening we went in. Most of the clientelle were "signing". We found out that the Theater for the Deaf was performing there later on. Books line the walls and lots of beer on tap. The woman behind the bar says she brews the best!
