Took a few hour trip down to Pacific City. It was a perfect sunny day, drove around a little bend and saw the gorgeous setting on which the brewery sits. Literally its right on the beach. We walked inside, it was a weekday afternoon, so it wasn't really busy. Sat by the large windows facing t. Hhe ocean. How can I say... it was really really nice. I can only imagine how busy it gets in the summer time. The blackened chicken sandwich that I ordered was very substantial. For $10 I thought I was getting a small little meal, but it was actually very filling. I did get the raw veggies on the side, they did look a little dried out. Other than that I had a nice glass of the 08 Stormwatchers. It was great! Then when you exit the place you can load up on all the beers they sell. They even give you a discount when you purchase a case. All in all it was a very lovely place. I hope to take another trip out there with the girlfriend. The beach was beautiful.

Tillamook Pub: Wonderfully diverse & stylistically delicious brew selection, attentive & swift service, knowledgeable staff. Appropriate pricing on create-your-own brew sampler platters (for me, this is always a highlight for any brewery visit).

My wife and I stopped for lunch on a Tuesday as we traveled up the Oregon Coast eventually to Portland. We arrived at 2pm and it was still packed for lunch. Picture a very beach town type crowd. It was mostly locals or coastal tourists there for lunch.

We had to wait about 30 minutes for a seat outside, but the back patio is nice and the view is amazing. It was a beautiful, slightly cool sunny day and like most say on here, that ROCK is mesmerizing for some reason. If you like ocean views, check this place out.

They had all staples on tap, plus 3-4 seasonals/one-offs. In the front, they sell tons of brewery merchandise and most staples to go. They sell pints, a smaller size (I think it was 10oz) and then a flight. Their flight is pre-set to include all of their staples and one (1) seasonal/one-off. No substitutes. For example, the non staples they had no tap were Sea Hops, Peliweiss, Winema Wit and their Summer Ale.

The food was good, no complaints, but more expensive then I thought it would be. I wouldn't say I was impressed or blown away, just good food, average to slightly above average beer and good service with a great view.

This was stop #12 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here to try their beers, but ended up having a snack as a go-along. The pub is located on the Pacific shore of this rustic community, and has an ocean view that has to be the best of any brewpub anywhere with that giant rock sitting out there in the water, even when it’s gloomy and rainy like it was that day. (I don’t know why a giant rock is so mesmerizing.) The exterior of the building is seaside rustic, and the interior has a balanced feel of a restaurant that also has a nice pub feel to it. A long wooden bar and back-bar just fit nicely here.

We came here for dinner and to try the beers. We ordered the brewery’s standard sampler flight with 7 beers, plus three others that we also wanted to sample. Every one of these beers was brewed to a level above the norm for the style, and our grading system put this brewery into the top 5 of the 40 breweries that we visited during our three-week pub-crawl. We felt that all of the beers graded to at least a B level, and the Cherry Poppin’ Dory was the standout at an A- rating.

Our food was equally as impressive as the beers, plus we added a Beer-A-Misu dessert onto our feast. (Yum!) We also discovered that the pub was open for breakfast, so since were staying across the street we returned the next morning. The breakfast was also very good, plus we got to enjoy the scenic view again, but with sunshine this time. This pub is a must-visit for anyone who is touring the beer scene in Portland and has the time to detour to Pacific City.

4.16/5  rDev +1.5%

Took some time off last summer and drove with the wife from LA to Canada so I hit numerous breweries in Northern California all the big boys and they were all great.

This place was memorable because it came as a complete surprise I found it by pure luck looking for a restroom off a rural section of PCH. It was literally like an oasis.

First off we parked the jeep on the sand walked over and sat in the patio right by the water had some great food and several beers. The service was great nice mixed crowd of friendly local and tourists. Even picked up some cool sweatshirts. We will definitely be going back.
