This was the second brew pub/brewery I ever visted, but I credit Rogue with starting my fascination and love affair with great beer.

Easily one of my favorite brew pubs on the face of the earth. In my opinion, Rogue beer is second to none. The bar tender was most friend and generous (with free beer samples). We were the only people in the pub until 5:00 pm when it seems that most of the community stopped in for a beer and to watch the sunset over the bay. I can't say enough good things about this place.

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.

Visited the Brewery and Distillery next door, and sampled several good beers that, I can't get in Ohio. Very good selection of taps and beer was served very good and at right temp. Bartenders were very attentive and helpful. Didn't eat anything since I was spending the night at the public house across the bay. But took the tours of both the Brewery and Distillery.

Highly recommend the tours a lot of fun, very informative, at least the tour guide I had was, and overall a great place to visit.

I'd highly recommend taking a tour of their new Distillery, very fun and the Master distiller usually give the tour and is a lot of fun to talk to and great at answering questions. Will be back next time I'm in Oregon, a truly awesome beer experience. Recommend it to all thirty travelers, much more than the Public House.

If your in the area, this brewery is a must. The food was very good, the beer selection was fantastic. The beer server was full of information on ALL the beers poured from the tap a bottles. Spent two hours and that still wasn't enough time. Had a ball!

Had dinner and a beer on a slow night. The bartender chatted with us and was very nice. They give a free sample when you come in, and we got the Chatoe Dirtoir Black Lager. I had an Old Crustacean on tap and it was delicious. I then got a sandwich which had raw red onions so my beer palate was shot. I am going again soon and I look forward to it. I bought about 8 bottles in the giftshop. I highly recommend it if you are in Newport.

I didn't get to go on a tour but you can clearly see barrels aging John John when you walk in. The giftshop has great prices with no tax. I bought John John for 6.25 and it is 9.29 at my local store.

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.

True to their name, the tours at Rogue are not your average brewery experience. They only occur if people show up and if someone is on hand to lead it. Generally, tours get going at 4, to take part, check in with the bartender of gift shop clerk shortly before hand.

The tour is a good one, they are proud of their black sheep ways and their cost cutting techniques that give the brewery and by entension, their beers, so much character. You'll see the bottling line (third-hand), their fermentation tanks (old dairy vessels), the old school kegs with bungs and their not quite finished office space. The tour guide that day had a good sense of humor and the smarts to bring along a glass of beer along with him and provided a fun, informative tour.

The bar/restaurant upstairs is spare in decor but big on service and providing as many rogue beers as possible. The food menu is similar to their brewpub over on the other side of Newport with the standard pub fare available.

The gift shop offers a big selection of rogue beers by the bomber, the six pack or the case. They also had a selection of shirts, hats, glasses etc.

A worthwhile vist if you're in town and have some time to kill after visiting the aquarium or something. If you're looking for a night out, head across the bay to the brewpub, they are in a better part of town for hanging out in.

After a long day of traveling from the East Coast the sight of the brewery under the bridge was a welcome respite. Best of all there are a couple of hotels within walking distance to the brewery.

The entrance to the bar and restaurant is through the brewery itself, nothing like the smell of a brewery to get you going. A small gift shop with Rogue merchandise and beers is on the first floor once you get through the brewery and before you head upstairs to the bar and dining area.

We visited 2 nights midweek so there was no wait for seating and the service was excellent. Several tables overlook Yaquina Bay though in general the atmosphere was more utilitarian, which for us is perfect. We came for beer. It is also kid-friendly with food options and a Lego table.

The beer selection was outstanding, with standard Rogue offerings, specialty/seasonals as well as a few guest brews. Altogether it was a great experience and we would definitely recommend stopping by if are in or passing through Newport.

My wife and I were going to the aquarium in Newport and through luck find that the Rogue brewery was on the same road. We stopped at the brewery after the aquarium and stayed for a very long time.

When you walk in you go through a portion of the brewery which is really cool. We missed the 3PM tour which was unfortunate. The gift shop has lots of cool merch and a wide variety of beers.

The Brewers on the Bay is quite cool, very casual with a beautiful view of the bay. The staff was very attentive despite being quite busy. My only minor complaint is that the food was not quite up to what the pricing was although it was still solid.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Rogue Ales, a very cool casual place that I cannot recommend highly enough.
