This is definitely my local hangout. Great brews, good food, and good friends can't be beat. They're young and still playing with their brews, which is fun because there's always a surprise in store. They've got your typical hop-heavy Northwest brews, plus a bunch of Belgian style stuff and lately have been releasing some crazy Brett stuff. You have to go at least weekly, or you'll be missing out on something!

The food is good, but pretty basic. Pizza being my favorite fare. Note that they do cater to veggie/vegan palettes too. They've also go bands regularly and are located off the 'strip' and away from the maddness of downtown Hood River.

If you're visiting from out of town, skip Full Sail and come here!! Some early, though, because it fills up fast :)

Conveniently located downtown, walking distance from everything.

Liked their beers a whole lot. They were bold and unique styles. Got a sampler with all 8 of their offerings, none let me down. I really loved their "BPA", a IPA/Belgian hybrid .

Atmosphere is nice. Comfortable bar, nonsmoking, some couches in the corner, outdoor seating. Good place to spend an evening, very laid back with good music, dim lighting and good atmosphere. Locals come here, (which means its good!) and the prices are reasonable.

If your hungry for a full dinner, go to Big Horse, but if a pizza or munchies are your thing, XX Mountain has a decent pubfare menu, better than Full Sail.

Recommendation for the night:
Visit Big Horse for dinner, wander down to Full Sail (3 blocks) and give it a try, then come here to Double Mountain Taproom and enjoy the rest of your night with their sampler or a pint. Great little place!!

After enjoying a brewery tour at Full Sail, we headed over to Double Mountain to finish up the afternoon. We had a sampling of the Devil's and Rainier Kriek's in addition to the Hop Lava. The Kriek's were fantastic! (2009 vintage) Especially the Rainier.

There were plenty of other beers on tap and I wish I had it in me to try more but we had just finished a session at the Full Sail tap room and drinking more was not in the cards.

Pretty cool vibe and story behind the place. Super low key, nice outdoor seating, an overall friendly place. Love the logo...cool merchandise. Weather was great! Good memories and I can't wait to go back.

Sadly I visited Double Mountain as I was leaving Oregon. Not only can you go to their taproom and enjoy the amazing beers that this top brewery makes, you can enjoy great food in one of the most beautiful cities in the entire state. Everyone in oregon should go to Hood River and spend some time trying all of the world class beers on tap.

My wife and I did a three-day, 16 brewpub tour of northeastern Oregon. Double Mountain came out as one of the top three on the tour (Laurelwood and Roots being the others). We did all three of the beer brewing joints in Hood River. Don't waste your time at Full Sail - the beers were so bad we left with our sampler 60% full. Double Mountain is right around the corner. It's a small, cozy joint occupied mostly by locals. We had their sampler which I think was 5 beers. They give a generous pour so you can do a nice evaluation of their beers. The stout was phenominal. I can't say I like Kolsch, but theirs was good enough to make a convert of me. The bartended told me they would be bottling in the near future.

Vibe is not quite as good since they expanded. Very crowded and too family friendly now. Still one of my favorite places to grab a beer after a long hike in the gorge. Awesome pizza.

We made the trek out to Hood River for a short kayak trip while visiting Portland for the Oregon Brewer's Festival. We all loved Hood River. The views were stunning and there were lots of great shops, wineries and restaurants. But my favorite part of he town is Double Mountain.

The Double Mountain tap room is a small and simple but very impressive operation. They had several of their beers on tap but being the hophead that I am, I stuck to the Molten Lava (an Imperial IPA) and Hop Lava (an IPA). The Molton Lava was certainly the more complete product but the Hop Lava had a nice way of letting the hops run wild. Both were outstanding and very memorable.

The service was very good as well. One of the guys behind the bar was one of several operator / owners. As I understand it, they broke away from Full Sail and started the place. He was very helpful and clearly had a passion for beer and the business behind it.

We had a couple of appetizers as well. One was a greek sampler plate with hummus, feta, pita bread, peppers, olives and some grape leaf wrapped something or other. It was fantastic. I highly recommend it. The other was chips and salsa. The chips were only OK but the salsa was pretty good.

Double Mountain is as good as it gets for craft beer / hop lovers. Check it out.

Stopped by Double Mountain a couple of times during a weekend camping trip near Hood River... wow, I was really glad I found this place! I had a feeling it would be pretty awesome when I stepped out of my car and could smell wort drifting on the evening breeze from around the corner! First night, I tried the Hop Lava and finished things off with a couple of Dapper Dan's (their 3.7% session ale) - also had the turkey and cheddar sandwich, which was nothing mindblowing, but definitely filled me up and was stacked with meat and cheese. The vibe was pretty chill, and the staff was friendly - eager to chat about kite surfing, snowboarding and beer. Stopped back in on my way to Portland and had the Killer Green fresh hopped IPA, which was awesome. A nice, chill spot to have a couple of delicious beers -

This place is awesome. I was under the impression they opened at 4 so I thought I'd miss checking it out but low and behold it was open at 2 when I happened to walk by.

The place is pretty small but the beer is incredible. They had their regular stuff on tap as well as a strong Belgian ale called the Ardennes as well as an barrel aged offering.

You can get samples, pints and food at this place. What more can you ask for. The decor is really cool with an amazing bar and wooden cabinetry.

This is definitely your beer destination in Hood River. Awesome little place.
