Travis was picked up at Dean's Scene. Where he spent the night btw. He enthusiastically spoke of a Speak Easy, his friend Dean the brewer, and the fascinating underground
phenomena of a basement, home-brew, barter...scene.
Here's a more comprehensive review:
The story here is that on any Mon, Wed, Fri, or Sat when this sign lights up in the basement window, a window that doesn't face the street so at best you will detect it's neon glow. When the light is on you can go around back and let yourself into a world out of this world. A place where you will always taste a new brew, where you can help Dean with his creations, where your money is merely a donation for his next batch. Personally I can't wait to check it out.
Are there other Speak Easy's in Portland? Do tell.
