Stopped by with lots of excitement. As a rogue nation member I was excited to visit our capital. Unfortantly it just didn't live up to my dreams. There was nothing there that I can't buy back at the coop in Boise beerwise. Staff acted as if we were in their way. They were excited about the new glow in the dark growlers and not interested anyone else. One member almost took my son out with his hand truck, he stared at my son until my son said sorry for being in the way....this was all in the middle of the gift shop. We left an unwelcoming place fast. My wife said in the car..."wow that sucked". Yes yes indeed it did.

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.

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.

My wife and visited the brewery during the last weekend in March 2007. It was very busy due to a "Garage Sale" they were having (in honor of April Fools Day?). We went upstairs to the pub which was very crowded and filled with cigarette smoke...didn't stay long. We then checked out the sale and tasted a few of the samples that were offered. Rogue makes some great beers! I did purchase a 24-pack of the Dead Guy Ale and a 12-pack of Trafalgar IPA that Rogue imports via the Freeminer Brewery. I walked out spending less than $50 on some very good beer. Overall I was a little disappointed in what the brew pub and the store had to offer since I am a big fan of the Rogue brews. But I was pleased with the sale and since I visit Newport often, I will try to time my next trip during another sale.

Great beer, great location, nice place, awful food. It's been a few years since I've been. Mostly because the food was so bad, and that part of the world is somewhat off the beaten path.
The location on the waterfront is very nice. I liked how the place is so industrial and they don't make it all polished like say a "Hops" chain restaurant.
The beer was great. I had the Shakespear Stout, which is by far my favorite beer that they brew. Luckily the beer is like a meal in a glass because I was very hungry, yet I still found the food to be less than desireable.
I got there and the kitchen must have been closing I guess, and I had some kind of apetizer with melted Velveta Singles on it. (um... yuck)
I think that if the food is still like this that they should hang it up and just have a tap room.

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.

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.
