Buckman Bars & Nightlife
930 S.E. Oak St., Buckman
As the name suggests, Basecamp is a popular hangout for local climbers and outdoorsmen (though in Portland, pretty much everybody qualifies for those designations). The brewery itself is high-ceilinged and open, with wooden beams cutting across the ceiling, a canoe hung over the bar, and more than one string of prayer flags. It’s exceedingly casual and welcoming, and their beers offer a good mix of bold, hoppy craft beers in addition to more traditional brews for classic palates.
