Gosh I'm a bit disappointed. We were there on a Sunday night, reasonably busy but pulled right up to the bar. We were there to sample a variety of beers and the bartender told us they don't like to pour more than a few samples at a time "so they don't get too warm." Umm... what? #1 quality beers open up nearer to room temp, and #2 we had two people splitting the samples, how long were they gonna last? She poured us 5 after some verbal massaging (very cool of her) and overall they were a bit underwhelming. Killer Green is my favorite fresh hop beer but honestly most other things have been a bit low on flavor for me. The winner of this flight tonight was the Devil's Kriek but even that was fairly tame. We paid and left without a trace. I'd go back if they had something special on, but otherwise it's a miss, although the pizza looked tasty. (849 characters)

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. (662 characters)

Great place to grab some pizza and a few beers. Food is good, wait is long, but that usually means they are doing something right. During my last visit the place was packed but the staff was very friendly and took great care of us. If you are into PNW style beers this is a great place to sample high quality craft. (315 characters)

I've had two chances to visit Double Mountain. Once, late on a Tuesday night after driving over 1,000 miles while moving from Colorado to Oregon. I was less than seventy miles from my new home in Portland, but I wanted to drive the Columbia River Gorge in daylight, so I stopped at Double Mountain before heading down the road to a state park to camp for the night. The second time, some months later, was with a group of friends. Both times, Double Mountain impressed me with its cozy, social atmosphere, beautifully shaped imperial pints, and quality beer. The pizza is also quite tasty, if slightly expensive. (What is it with Oregon brewpubs and their pricey pizza? That's right HUB, Laurelwood, Double Mountain...I'm looking right at you.)

The brewpub itself is small and intimate. It's also extremely popular, which means that it's hard to get a table. In other spaces, I might have felt that this was suffocating--really, there are only a handful of tables, a few seats at the bar, some outdoor seating, and a couch zone. But there's something about the setup here that works. It feels social and inviting, and I'm happy to see a new(ish) brewpub be so popular.

Charlie and the folks at Double Mountain keep six or seven house beers on tap. Their regulars include two standouts: the IRA and Hop Lava (IPA). Both see pretty regular rotation through many of Portland's restaurants and beer bars, and both are delicious. The IRA is on par with Green Flash and Bear Republic as far as "West coast" ambers go (Double Mtn's 'winter IPA' Fa La La La La might also be put into that category and doesn't disappoint, either) in setting a high standard for this emergent style. They also keep a very good pale ale on full time, as well as a fairly straightforward kolsch.

Overall, Double Mountain is a great, small stop between Portland and eastern Oregon, an up-and-coming local bar, and a growing, impressive brewery. Give them some of your time. (1,947 characters)

This is certainly the "cooler" place to go in Hood River (when compared to Full Sail), but it's lagging behind in virtually every aspect in my opinion. It's worth a stop if you're in town, but not a detour. (206 characters)

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. (594 characters)

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. (1,166 characters)

Visited here on 2010-01-31

After a nice day of hiking in the Gorge, I stopped here for the first time instead of my usual haunt at Full Sail. It's a small place but with an inviting atmosphere. There was reggae music playing, a mostly full seating area and bar with friendly patrons, a cooler with bombers of their beers, and a decent selection of their brews on draft.

I enjoyed a Hop Lava. The menu is pretty restricted but features good pizza. You can see the Columbia River from the front of the seating area but it doesn't have the commanding view like the Full Sail restaurant. Definitely worth a stop if you're in Hood River. (635 characters)

Just around the corner from Full Sail Brewery in Hood River, Oregon sits a small micro-brewery by the name of Double Mountain. A popular watering hole judging by the number of patrons on any day of the week. Summertime the crowd spills out onto the sidewalk at some small tables and chairs. Most of the folks attending are young people mostly 21 to 35 years old and a good cross section of working class to wind surfers. Indoors the place is collegiate casual with a couch over against one wall and an assortment of tables. The bar is fairly small with the brewpubs product on tap. Usually six to eight of their good brews available. Overall this is a small establishment. The people I met on two different visits were friendly and ready to converse on most any subject. The bartending was very competent and attentive with a good knowledge of their offerings. I did not try the food as this was growler fill time for me and I was on my way home. What I saw and smelled of the food made me want to stay awhile though. I will return when I can spend some time enjoying all this place has to offer. (1,096 characters)

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. (730 characters)

Stopped in for a few beers on a Thursday evening. They had a band banging out some good covers. The four beers we had were $5 each (VALUE). The bar service with excellent, especially for a fairly busy night. They had at least ten on tap with a few more in bottles. Well worth the time. (285 characters)

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. (652 characters)

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. (1,771 characters)

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). (592 characters)

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. (908 characters)

We hit all three places in Hood River in one great afternoon, and as far as the beer goes, this place was the best of the three. It's only been open for a few months at this point. Apparently it was started by some former employees of Full Sail, which is a few blocks away. At this point they have five excellent beers, plus a menu of sandwiches, salads and pizzas, which we didn't try, but looked good from what we saw.

The Pale Ale, the India Red Ale and the Hop Lava were the three beers that stood out to me, and it was the Hop Lava that we took a growler of. Our server was great, and when our beer-related questions were beyond her ability to answer, she got one of the brew guys from the back to talk to us and give us a tour of the place.

The place had a young, alternative vibe to it, which may not be everyone's cup of tea, so if you're looking for a fancy place, maybe you'd be better off at Big Horse or Full Sail, but for us, this was by far the more relaxed place with friendlier staff and customers, and definitely the better beer. (1,052 characters)

Dulcie and Aylwin's big beer adventure day four ended in Hood River; and with a surfeit of recommendations we landed on Double Mountain: completely unknown to us previously, but we are glad to have made its acquaintance.

In general our experience matches that of previous reviewers. Outside seating much to be preferred in the delightful warmth of the evening with the hills of the Columbia Gorge etched against the sky (also the intrusive blaring of music is reduced).

Beer tends towards the full-bodied, masculine style (Dulcie prefers a big beer). I noted they were all hazy - not necessarily a bad thing.

Decor very modern: copper beaten bar, subdued grays, greens and reds, interesting furniture.

Service pretty laid back: all you need to start a tab is your name (try that in Chicago!).

Food is your basic bar selection, but the pizza we got was one of the best in that genre.

Prices very reasonable all things considered. (934 characters)

Another one of those "unique to the NW" places.... Yet another reason why I love this part of the country.

Located on the quiet end of 4th street, Double Mountain is a hole in the wall brewpub. As one walks in you see the bar area up front, with maybe 8 or 9 seats. There are a few tables and chairs in the dining area, as well as some comfy looking couches strewn around the pub. Frankly, it doesn't get much more comfy, low key and relaxed then what you're likely to see at Double Mountain.

The day I was there, I think there were probably 12 to 15 folks, mostly a younger crowd that were anything other then yuppies. The service was friendly and informal, and I instantly felt very, very relaxed in this place. There were roughly 10 different beers on tap, and the one's I tried were solid across the board. They have a limited menu, and I didn't have a chance to try anything, but the mezze plate looked good enough.

I'm not the most outgoing person myself, but I found it easy to strike up a conversation with the relaxed, laid back crowd at Double Mountain. This place is an absolute gem, the kind of place you are unlikely to find in the city. Prices are so good it's stupid ($4 for imperial pints; $3 for "small" glasses). I'll definitely be back. This place is wayyyy cool...

Note from 6/13. Had not been back in some time, and while the place is as good as ever, it has also expanded considerably since I last stopped in. In addtion to the old taproom area to the left as you walk in, there's also a back area bar on the right, holding around 10 seats. There was also a good size dining area as well, and I'd say the capacity has more than doubled since my original visit. That turned out to be a a very good thing, as even at 1:30 on a Monday afternoon, the taproom was fairly full. Still a welcome stop any time one happens to be in town in Hood River. (1,870 characters)

Visited 6.10.2010 on way to Beervana.

Located on a side street off the main downtown Hood River drag, a block or so from Full Sail, Double Mountain has moved past 'the new kid on the next block' label to becoming a force in the Oregon brewing scene.

The taproom features a small 8 seat bar, about 8 tables and 3 outdoor tables, and a comfy couch in the corner. The staff was attentive and cheery without being pushy. When I visited they had 8 beers on tap, their regular products (Kolsch, Hop Lava IPA, IRA, Molten Lava DIPA, Vaporizer( and several rotating taps. They were selling quite a bit of food, burgers, sandwiches, and the pizza looked especially good and popular. Fairly cool vibe, mostly locals, classic rock Stones, Pink Floyd playing.

While the beer prices were certainly on the high side, all the beer is off exceptional high quality. Worth a stop when traveling though the area, and certainly needs to be included with Walking Man as must stops on a Gorge beer tour.

EDIT- Some of the best pizza outside the PDX market. I have a number of friends who travel from Portland for pizza and a beer. (1,114 characters)

After a hike up to Wahclella Falls a few miles west, our hungry/thirsty crew of four made the trek further east to Hood River for a much-needed Double Mountain respite. The Friday afternoon blue skies were picture-perfect so we picked a shady table on the (sloping) sidewalk, but only after procuring pints (well, goblets in a couple cases...) and picking a pizza.

Were the weather not so lovely, we could have stayed indoors and lounged on a comfortable leather sofa in a cozy space that feels less 'brewpub' and more 'living room'. On a visit a few months back, I noted this to be the case: the town truly embraces the place with neighbors meeting over ale glasses and children skirting between tables; it's all very homey, yet perfectly embodies what a pub *should* be - a welcome gathering place for all. Sun permeates from two sides of the room; the eastward facing one offers decent views of home-dotted hills across the nearby Columbia River. A bay adjacent to the bar houses the brewery and has a more austere arrangement of tables, distressed couches and a single dartboard; it's all good, since this is also the loading dock, connecting the brewery to the street.

Taplist is good/ varied and the quality/creativity of Double Mountain's brews has impressed me since my first taste some 2 years ago. On the day we visited, seven taps were active: Kolsch, Alpenbrew, Pale Ale, IRA, Hop Lava and two stunners, the big bad Belgian-inspired 'Inglemunster' and it's even badder oak barrel-aged sibling 'Inglemonster' (the latter two, both in the 11% range, served in goblets). Prices are quite fair: $4.50 imperial pints and $3.50 12 oz. glasses. Growlers can be filled, though DM does not bottle.

Food menu is limited to several sandwiches, salads/apps and brick-oven pizzas; add in cookies for dessert and a couple options for the kids and there's something pleasing to everyone. We choose the Margherita pizza, a crisp-crusted basic pie with tasty cheese and rich tomato sauce and a liberal sprinkling of shredded basil. It split well between the four of us and went well with the beers (amongst the group, I believe we had every one of the offerings except the Pale Ale).

Good food, terrific beers, comfortable vibe: all combine to make Double Mountain a 'must visit' when in Hood River. (Hint: an easy 1+/- hour drive from Portland) (2,344 characters)

I visited this place on 3/23/2010.

As others have mentioned, this place is right around the corner from Full Sail. Its a smallish place but the atmosphere is great. Cool copper covered bar with an older style bar back complete with big mirror. There was a sort of hipster crowd in there on my visit, with ages ranging from 20's to late 40's. Great music coming through the speakers...loud enough to rock but not loud enough to prohibit conversation.

The beers were really well made and ranged from good to exceptional. We had the english IPA (good), the kolsch (better), and the Belgian kriek (exceptional). Would have had more beers but they close at 10:00pm on weekdays!

The bartender was friendly and knowledgable and the beers were modestly priced. I bought a growler to go and the bottle was $4 and the beer in it was $11.

All in all a great little pub that makes very good beer. Highly recommended! (908 characters)

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. (335 characters)

Double Mountain is an absolute gem. I met the brewers in Portland at Belmont Station on a fine Thursday and was impressed with their support for the greater beer community. The staff there recommended the place too. After falling head-over-heels in love with their IPA at CAH’s fest I had to visit.

XX Mountain is located in a small building in downtown Hood River a block or so away from Full Sail’s Monster brewery (Seriously, Full Sail would be the largest brewpub building in Chicago, LA, or New York and yet there it lies in tiny Hood River…bizarre.) The atmosphere is very small town tavern and quite Wisconsin.

By this I mean that I have noticed that Oregon hates children. Everywhere I go in Oregon there are signs that say, “No Minors!!!” or “Minors will be PROSECUTED!” Maybe this is because I mostly go to brew pubs and bars but seriously, I’m beginning to get the idea that Oregonians just simply hate kids. It’s very, very sad.

In Wisconsin we love children, and not in a weird “I’m a priest” sort of way. Simply in a way that we not only allow them to converse, play games, and hang out with us in bars but in a way that we encourage it. Well… XX Mountain is that sort of place. No, there were not a bunch of little brats there, although there was at least one family with an infant… I’m guessing OR’s Johnny Law is currently hunting these bastards down with the full intention of giving them the death penalty for distracting the state’s gambling pool with crying newborns (Side Note for folks who have not visited OR: OR has a lottery racket that includes slot machines in nearly every bar. Seriously, this thing must make the Gambini family blulsh). At any rate, Double Mountain is a comfortable, community sort of place complete with couches and comfy chairs and what not.

Beerwise we are looking at about seven or eight beers with room to grow. XX Mountain employees say that their goal is to make common brews in uncommon ways. This shows. Styles available on the day I visisted included a really hoppy red ale, a Belgianish IPA, a BPA, a Kolsch, and a few darker brews. Most of these beers had some interesting tweaks on their traditional characteristics. I really loved the IPA, hop lava, I believe it was called. The RIPA was also quite good. The Devil’s Kitchen BPA was ok and the other beers were all quite good.

The food was great, mostly consisting of pizza, although a few sandwiches were offered as well. The pizza is New York style, very thin and with great toppings.

Staff cannot be beaten. Our bartender/manager was a veteran of the craft brew industry having served some time at Full Sail. He gave us great camping, beer, and restaurant tips. I really enjoyed our conversation with him and our chats with the other staff. The owners/brewers are great too.

I highly recommend Double Mountain. A brewery that can do simple styles well, consistently and with some flare is something to be cherished. Portland Bas should visit often and visitors to Portland should make the day trip out there (If you’re with a girl friend, just tell her you’re going to the falls and then side trip it to Double Mountain for lunch). (3,188 characters)

This is a taproom that serves beer, not a restaurant, so I kept that in mind with my scoring, and overall impession of this place. Very cool laid back mnt. town apres ski atmosphere, plenty of locals hanging out on the sofa's give's it a cool living room vibe.

Quality of the beers is fantastic, I've had at least 6 or 7 from these guys and they're all really good.

Service was fine, it was pretty busy they only had one server + bartender, but it was casual enough that it was all one tab and you could either wait to be servered or order at the bar.

Selection is great, beer wise. I went there the day after their 1 year anniversery party, and they had a whooping 13 of their own brews going, everything from DIPA to flanders kriek. I particularly enjoyed their dark rye this time.

Food was fine, basic menu, the hummus platter was fantastic, particulary the sweet red peppers. The left over went great on our NY style pizza, but that's basically the only entree available.

Pints were cheap for the size, food was average. Great beer and atmosphere makes this joint a great value. (1,091 characters)

After a wonderful hike, Double Mountain was the first stop for four thirsty wanderers (including msubulldog25). It couldn't have made a better lunch destination. We sat outside, and the view of Washington state across the river was as majestic as you might imagine.

The smell of wort/hop pellets wafted through the place, which was incredibly inviting and helped whet our appetites for their beer. I got their "strong Belgian-style" ale, Inglemunster, which I could award "beer of the vacation" (and I had a solid week of truly great beer). Also sampled the oak-aged version and their Kolsch. Each tasted fantastic, convincing that these people totally know what they're doing. It'll probably be awhile, but I can't wait to taste their brews again someday.

Their Margherita pizza is excellent. Their method of cooking it at nearly 700 degrees for a very short time assures a fresh taste while giving the crust a little char, which only added to the depth of the flavor. If there were a PizzaAdvocate.com, I would easily give it a 4.5.

Service was just fine, and the overall vibe of the place was one of warmth, friendliness and natural beauty. It was at the beginning of a long day of wonderful beer, great food and excellent company, and remains the standout of what turned out to be a legendarily memorable day. Thanks to my hosts Brian, Sharon and Bryce for an incredible time. (1,384 characters)
