Rogue bought this brewpub some five years ago. located in a weathered building in old Issaquah. Parking is tight around the pub. A nice " L " shaped bar with 12 or so stools. An open seating dining area is on the small side. This place is always packed at dinner time, less so at mid afternoon or late evening. The food is decent here, nothing outstanding, though a little pricey. The wait staff is friendly though not beer savvy. There are 15 or so taps here, mostly Rogue with a couple Issaquah brews. I've never seen any of Rogue's big beers on tap here a la I2pa, Imperial Stout, Old Crustaceon, etc, bottled versions only. Speaking of bottled beers, there's cases upon cases of Rogue brews for sale here. Over all this is a nice little neighborhood pub.

Atmosphere is just like any other bar/restaurant/brewrey. If you sit at the bar you can see the fermentaion tanks. Piles of Rougue products everywhere.

Beers are Rouge ales and a few Issaquah Ales holdovers. All high quality brews.

Service was friendly but not too knowledgeable about the beers. They poured samples to help people find what they want.

Selection of beers ranges the spectrum of styles.

Food is typical pub grub with some seafood options done right. I've had the burger and it was average. The clams were great.

This is a Rogue establishment. It has brewed the Trolley Ale in honor of their heritage trolley.

I stopped here to have dinner with friends who work nearby. We go seated quickly in the front dining area and had brews quickly. It was good to the Rogue beers and also good to try the Bullfrog ale.

Typical of Rogue there were stacks and stacks of 22 oz cases. I guess this is the corporate decoration. We had a great dinner. My soup, salad, and fish special were well done. The beer was a good match for fish.

The Issaquah brewhouse is in a row of shops in "Historic Downtown Issaquah". As you walk in the door, stacks of Rogues products and the Issaquah brew room are all saluting you on the right. The atmoshphere is nice with a large bar area and around 12-15 tables of varoius sizes. There is a gift shop selling Rogue and Issaquah specific shirts.

The beer selection rotates regularly and included 12 taps of Rogue beers, 3 taps of Issaquah beers, and 2 guest taps. We had the McMonk's Dubbel (Issaquah), Bullfrog Ale (Issaquah), St Rogue Red (Rogue), Chocolate Stout (Rogue) and the Mocha Porter (Rogue). The food selection was standard pub far, but tasted a lot better than the food you will find at a TGI Friday's.

Service, on the other hand, was quite spotty. There were 2 waitstaff on hand and the waiter we had seemed to be the slowest. He forgot to bring water to the table and hardly checked on us all night. The waitress on the other hand seemed to be on the ball and taking good care of her tables. I will revisit the brewpub at some point and re-evaluate their service.

In the end, I would recommend checking it out if you are in the area if only for the beers.
