I usually travel to Oregon once a year. Whenever I'm near Newport, I go to Brewer's on the Bay. Rogue is my favorite American brewery and what better place to drink their products than at the source?

I imagine that if I started a brewery it would look like this: cobbled together. This isn't a fancy, all-built-at-once place like some other operations. Rogue has expanded inside this warehouse piece by piece and it sure shows. But Rogue's operation shows you don't need fancy equipment to brew some of the best beer in America.

The restaurant/taproom is upstairs. (Watch for forklifts as you walk through the brewery!) The most impressive sight is the line of taps. Rogue brews about 20 beers and they have almost all of them on tap here. Their samplers are four 4 oz. glasses. You pick which four you want. I wouldn't recommend trying all their brews at once since most are above-average in alcohol content. I think all their beers are great.

Their food is nothing spectacular. Just above average. But visit Rogue for the beer, not the food. The service is usually good, and the staff know a lot about the beers and brewing. Jeff has been there for the past few years. He not only waits tables, but also gives the tours!

Smoking is allowed but I've rarely seen people lighting up. (You gotta love the West Coast.)

They have a giftshop beneath the restaurant that also sells many of their beers. Their specials are usually very tempting. (Like 12 22 oz. Chocolate Stouts for $25.)

Highly recommended.

Rogue was pretty cool, but definitely not the best beer place i've been to. It actually fit the personality I thought it would based on the beers they put out; not the best but not the worst. I still enjoyed myself, so it got a 4 from me.
