Rogue...some places are breweries and some places are brew pubs. Rogue is a BREWERY. I must keep that in mind while I write this, because I really enjoy their beers and they had an amazing selection. Of course, the selection was of beers in bottles, not on tap. That was very disappointing. So, their brew pub is located in the Distillery (where they make award-winning rum!) and they have 20 or more Rogue beers in bottles available there. There is maybe a table or two and then a bunch of bar seats, and it's not much of an atmosphere, because you're in the middle of the distillery. And the bartenders know more about the rum than the beer. But you could make whatever mixed-packs you wanted of Rogue products for a good price. The beer.

The food, was a different story. Served on plastic plates and with plastic cutlery, I found everything about my meal inedible. They also had a very limited menu. Stick to the beer (or the rum) there - eat someplace else. They're not known for their food anyway.

I went on the weekend of a crab and wine festival, so the area was really crowded. And Rogue was having a garage sale! Apparently this happens every holiday weekend, and you can get lots of Rogue-ware (ie. pint glasses, t-shirts, sweatshirts, stickers, taps) as well as 24-packs or more of many of their beers for very cheap prices. If you're stocking up for a party or a bar, or all your glassware broke in your move from Indiana to Oregon (me), this is the time to hit Rogue.

I will certainly go back there and try some of their harder to find beers at some point...but maybe eat somewhere else first or else bring a lunch.

Enjoyed my visit at Rogue. Tried a lot of beers, but the taproom is not very inviting with a weird setup. Good selection of their beers.

Not overly thrilled. I live here, and Rogue has always been the Icon for breweries on the coast. Well they have sure fallen under the "It's good enough for the Coast" philosophy.

Although the beer is genuinely unique and interesting, the food fare and restaurant ambiance leaves much to be desired. My family and I were seated downstairs in what I would describe as overflow seating for lunch as we had two small children with us. Tables from some picnic area, red and white checkered tablecloths cut and pieced together, no view of the brewery operations although given enough thought, it could be. The view of the harbor was great but the seagull excrement on the windows not only made you not want to look out but ruined the eating experience. The areas under the tables were collection areas for dropped food and the scraps wiped from the tabletops and seating areas. The kids lived their grilled cheese sandwich and naked cheeseburger (kind of hard to screw those up) and the free frisbee, but my buttermilk oysters were obviously frozen pre-breaded concoctions thrown into a deep fryer and cooked beyond done. They were little more than deep fried batter with oyster flavor. To their credit, they comp-ed the meal. The grilled ruben sandwich was reportedly mediocre.

My Irish Lager was a little too DMS, canned corn for my tastes although it would have probably been better had it been below 55 degrees when served. The Mead was excellent, however.

Low scores are not for the beer, but for the experience and poor food. It is the Pacific Northwest for crying out loud!

Go for the Beer, but in my opinion; find another place for lunch.

This was the brewery that got me interested in beer as a complex and flavorful beverage rather than simply the drink of choice among buzz seeking frat boys. I have since expanded my horizons to other breweries in other states, but I still find myself coming back to Rogue.
