I've been here a few times over the last 11 years. It went from a really great experience in 2003 to a big disappointment a few years later to a little better this last time a couple days ago. The beers have always been great. The service this last time was just really slow considering how many people were not in the bar and restaurant. The clam chowder came out luke-warm. I don't understand how difficult it could be to serve chowder hot. Besides that the food is better than average but not good enough to justify the price premium.

the ales are way overpriced. they don't have as many high alcohol beers that cost as much as green flash and stones Dipas that are around 9.5% abv. rogue sells 5% abv beers for the same price as the other west coast brewers. plus they never put alcohol percentages on their bottles, that has caused me to buy bottles then come home to find i spent 10 dollars for a 6% abv bomber that doesn't even taste that great.

Went to the event "Rogue Memorial Ale" 2013 and had a blast! The cost was a $10.00 event, but the additional beers, which you had to do, were a little pricier than I would have liked. Nonetheless, I truly enjoyed all the beer selections as well as the Dog Olympics.

The outside was filled with beer tents, kegs, people and dogs...good times. Inside the warehouse was filled with the same but to include live bands, very cool.

It's a quick turn off Hwy 101 and I highly suggest going.

I loved visiting the brewery. It was really interesting taking a tour of the actual facility then following it up with something to eat in the quirky yet quaint retail outlet and tavern. I tried a few beers like the chocolate dunkle which was really good and of course you cant forget the dead guy ale. One of my favorite shirts I own by the way...the glow in the dark dead guy on the back. I would go here back when I was in college and drinking their beer brings back fond memories of a time long past! Love it!

I decided to drop by Rogue on the way down the coast. The location is pretty gorgeous and the exterior of the facility looks very cool. Once you head inside it seemed a little disjointed, but you get to walk through part of the brewery and head up the gift shop and bar. The gift shop was pretty cool, great selection of beer/clothes/misc goodies. The bar is pretty plain. It was small and nothing special. I decided to go for a flight, which was decent, it didn't blow me away though. I was going to buy a bottle of their blackberry big barrel release, but after sampling it I decided against it. They had a really cool book/binder that contained a run down of the history, beers and brewers. It was nice to flip through while I drank. I bought some swag and they had a great selection. The service was mediocre, at best. I waited a long time for it being such a small place. I didn't try any of the food, but it looked good.

I would recommend checking this place out and I would go again, but I wasn't blown away by it. Their beer has always been a little hit or miss for me, so that doesn't help either.

Wife and I stopped here on our way to Portland and it was a nice treat. The selection of beers was quite impressive which included many of their production line brews and several experimental beers and a few seasonals. We had 3 samples and a few appetizers but I don't remember the food so I won't comment. The service was pretty bad, it was 630pm on a weekday with maybe 12 other people in the joint and we waited 30-45min before the waitress even took our order, and then 20-30 to refill water and bring next sampler. Sadly this is what stood out to me the most that night despite the amazing beer.

I currently live in California, love Oregon, and miss it dearly. I used to live there and had many a Shakespeare Stout (and other Rogue 22's) purchased from the QFC near my house. I now live in California and I went on a Northern California-Oregon Coast road trip and visited the Rogue Brewery in Newport.

Our 2-day experience at the Newport Rogue (headquarters) was horrible. The beer is very expensive and they seem to cater to tourists and people who don't respect beer. I was right at the brewery and beers were $6.00 each. Yikes. As advertised on the board, I ordered a Shakespeare Stout on Nitro and it was delicious. One of the best beers I've ever had. The flavor, consistency, and lacing down the glass was incredible. Wow! I wanted another. So what did they do? They gave me a non-nitro Shakespeare, thinking I would have no idea. It was so obvious, but I ordered a taster tray with Mocha Porter and Shakespeare Stout on Nitro to compare. They gave me the Nitro on the taster tray - you could see the lacing down the glass and the taste was so smooth and delicious. When I ordered another Shakespeare on Nitro they gave me the coarse non-Nitro one again. Finally, I decided to go to the bar and I ordered one and he gave me the Nitro version of it. He refused to fill my growler with the Shakespeare Stout nitro and said that nitro's don't work in growlers (I don't know if that's true or not - but I would like to know).

Either way, sell what you say you're selling. Don't lie to people. I had a better experience at Russian River Brewery and Eel River Brewery. Good service, good food, good beer.

Stayed at the bed and beer for me and my wive's one year anniversary. Since i'm also a rogue citizen it only cost us about $80 bucks a night, plus all my pints where half off. What made me want to go in the first place was Rogue's Brew master, personally shipped me a bottle of Chatoe Rogue pumpkin patch ale. (It was only available on the West Coast this year) The staff was extremely friendly at the bed and beer, ale houses, and the brewery. For anyone who is a fan of rogue you must take a chance to visit the brewery. Coming from Ohio, the selection probably seemed much better to me, but it definitely had the Ohio breweries beat on selection.

First of all, I love rogue beers in general. My girlfriend and I made a special trip while in Portland to go to Newport just to go here. It was worth it! Atmosphere was very good. We got to take a look at the brewery. Quality of beers were great( as to be expected). Almost all the beers we tried were very good and they had special beers as well that were not readily available. The food was good and it was the only part that was not exceptional. Prices of beer were very reasonable. Food was a little overpriced.

Went here for a late lunch on October 2011. The place was quite packed as it was the weekend, though we got a seat within 15 minutes or so in the bar. This was my second time and the bar area is relatively small and might only fit 30 people at most, but there is a whole restaurant section around the back which I did not get to see. Atmosphere was not bad, you get a view of the bay on one end and the brewery silo things on the other side. The list of beers available on tap is quite a lot (~30-40), which means that you usually would have to get more than one flight. Some are average, but their big beers such as the double chocolate stout is phenomenal. I have also had some of these beers out of bottles in California and they definitely taste much better here. I enjoyed the food as well as I am a fan of the classic comfort food (burgers, fries, onion rings) and they don't mess with the recipes too much. The bartenders were surprisingly attentive considering there were only two of them serving over 20 people. Overall, it was a highly enjoyable experience and you cannot pass this up if you are stopping by Newport (unless you're a Rogue hater of course).
