We went over to Double Mountain for their 7th year anniversary.

I gotta say on our road trip this was the most fun atmosphere we were around. Live music, in/out door activity and alot of socializing.

We got to do a vip deal (which costed extra) to go back into the brewing area and get access to special one-off brews that were projects.

IRB and the two Kriek beers were definitely tastey. Outside of that though i don't think my palate was up to the task for the rest of their brews.

I probably would not make a trip out here unless it was for the anniversary again, and even then, it'd have to be because there's something else in hood river to check out.

All the marks/scores given were for Friday the 14th and the guy who waited on us was awesome and we tipped him accordingly (my wife actually thru in another 5 ) on top of my 20%.

That being said we went in the next day for Zwicklemania and wanted to do the 3:30 brewery tour, we were 45 min early so we took a seat on a couch with a coffee table and watch as 3 different waiters and waitresses walked by for 1/2 hour and never even asked if we wanted anything, I even tried to stop one of them and was either not heard or ignored (don't know why).

So we promptly left and went to Full Sail.

Awesome place to get a beer and food. main focus is pizzas, and they are some of the best i've ever had! make sure to hit up happy hour: $5 greek salad is enormous and delicious, and $10 smaller versions of the pizza. service is great, never been disappointed.

When I walked in here, I was mad that I spent the last couple of hours at Full Sail. They serve awesome pizza, and their beer is quite good. They had two casks. They were busy, but we stuck it out for about 15 mins to get a seat at the bar. Very glad we did. This is a bar that really feels "lived in" and grimy, but in a charming way.

A: I walked in on a very busy Saturday afternoon. Parking was non-existent and the crowd was a force to be reckoned with. An ample amount of outdoor seating along the entrance/sidewalk but when you walked in ...WOW..cramped, busy. There was a small bar area to the left as I walked in with some seating and another bar and seating area off to the right behind the hostess. One seat at the bar and I snagged it. Busy, sordove chaotic. Severs were very busy but the atmosphere was energetic. I struck up some beer talk with guys at the bar.

Q: My two beers were great. Devils Kriek is always good but my Poseur was amazingly good! No issues with quality here.

S: Despite how busy my server was he stayed on top of the bar and kept the beer flowing.

S: Standards available. A few rotating handles and specialty stuff which I greatly appreciated.

F: I did not try any food but I heard the pizza was legit.

Small bar, with some tables surrounding, I believe there was a dining area adjacent but I did not venture as I was constrained time wise.

Bartender was very friendly and helpful, allowed for samples prior to purchasing which is nice when you have literally never tried one of their beers.

Of the few I sampled some were average a few were quite above average. They have a bunch of their regulars on draft as well as a few which I was told were test batches/taproom only.

They also offer half or full pours which is helpful if you want to explore (and remember your journey in Hood River).

Double mountain is a cozy, slightly more "hip" brewpub about a block from Full Sail. The room probably seats about 40 or 50. Our server quickly showed up and helped us pick out some beers. I don't know anything of her general beer knowlege, but she knew the double mountain product line well. The menu also provides detailed descriptions of each beer, providing a lot of extra information (really good thing).I got a sampler of a few beers, including a fresh hop, peche and a couple of krieks. I knew I would be paying a little extra for my sampler because I ordered a few specialty beers, but I was actually surprised by the cost. This is a great place to check out if you are making a beer trip out to Hood River, don't miss it.

A pretty small industrial pub that is basically across the street from the massive Full Sail brewery. The bar is straight ahead as you walk in, seats about 10, with a few tables surrounding the parameter. Staffed okay to accommodate the swarm of people. Servers were moderately attentive, semi-knowledgeable and mostly on top of their serving duties, but seemed to have a lot of mini-conversations about customers as they were pouring beers behind the bar. A bit like a "townie" crowd of both servers and patrons enjoying the brews and food. There was a monsoon happening outside during my visit, leaving me and my coat soaked when I walked in. Their long rack of coat hangers immediately gave a homey vibe that could have only improved with a fireplace. It's weird, but I enjoyed this feature.

Ordered a slightly pricey taster flight and a pint. Double Mountain makes high-quality beers, a lot of which make their way to Seattle, so I at least went in with some idea of what I was getting into. The brewery had a lot of seasonals on- a perk to visiting the brewery, but were mostly sours and krieks. Brews were all crafted, nicely balanced, and very drinkable. A nice, smooth hop bitterness was detectable in pretty much everything. Very pacific northwest. Clean, with great carbonation and body. The pub was packed, cramped, loud, with virtually no seating. Decent vibe... just freakin' busy.

Man, the brick-oven pizzas looked extraordinarily tasty. Monstrously big for one appetite... but I still heavily considered getting one. They really need some smaller offerings. The beer/pizza combo is so alluring, I am already thinking about when I can drive all the way back here for a pint of dry hopped IPA and a pie. Me and my lady had fun here, but boy was it cramped.

Nice vibe to this little place. A little bit on the hipster/hippie side, but it wasn't overly done...more on the contemporary side. A small bar seats about 8-10 people, with a few tables and chairs to accommodate a small but decently sized crowd, maybe 50-75 max. Servers were all nice, even if a bit slow and/or inattentive: my wife ordered her food, and the bartender whisked away before I even got to open my mouth to order. And she gave me the wrong size beer, but oh well. They have a good selection of house brews on tap, including a nitro stout, and 2 krieks, the Devil's Kriek being the definite highlight of the beer I sampled. Some of the "higher end" beers were a little on the pricey side, but nothing out of control, and the prices were otherwise reasonable. Food was very good, with some good selections including housemade pizza. Unfortunately, said pizza only comes in a 16" size. I would have liked to try one, but as I was the only one interested, and there are no personal size pies, I had to abstain. Anyway, very nice little place, small and relaxed, and seemingly doing well despite being within easy walking distance of Full Sail. Recommended.

Stopped here after a recommendation from locals and the folks at Full Sail. Did a flight and thought it was a little on the pricey side, but their beers were at least solid, with their Kriek standing out about others (at least to me). Placed that afternoon was packed, and it seemed to really have the right vibe for a brew pub. I didn't try any food, and the service was ok although it was very busy and could maybe normally be better when it wasn't. They did have a decent line up of beers for a brewery I didn't know anything about and I would probably visit there again if in Hood River to hike more of the trails to the 77 waterfalls in the gorge.
