You never can tell for certain just how early you need to get to the airport these days. I always aim at two hours because I would rather not race against the clock.
I was staying in downtown Portland and had to return my rental car. I live in Atlanta and the traffic can be brutal. I didn't expect that to be the case in Portland. But better to be safe than sorry!
The woman in the security line ahead of me was selected for a random security intensified check--lucky her...and I just waltzed right through.
I had just over two hours until my flight departed so I was delighted to find the Rogue Public House right next to my gate.
I had two 20oz. Rogue beers and a shot of their Spruce Gin as well as a reuben sandwich. The young woman serving us was extremely friendly and knew about the beers they served.
The best flight I have taken in quite awhile!

My first official beer stop of my Oakland-Portland vacation (2012 edition).
Concourse D - I didn't note the closest gate, maybe D5? Nice copper top, I'm jealous! Seating for ~ 40. 12 taps, 10 rogue plus Bud and Stella. Lots of Rogue swag on the walls. Beer to go in both bottles and growlers. Reasonable liquor selection. Service a bit slow but not bad. Several tvs showing tennis. Burgers, wings, etc on menu (I didn't order food). $6/pint, no half pints available. Samples on request. Overall pretty decent for an airport bar.

A. A typical decor for an airport pub.The seats were very comfortable, and it was a pretty realaxed place to hang at while waiting for a flight.
Q. Very clean, the brews were mostly Rogue brews which in my opinion are some of the best in the country. Bud and bud light also on tap. Bartender would offer samples if you wanted to try a brew.
S. The bartender was really helpful with the brew selections and she was also great at keeping your brew full. Knowlege of the beer she was serving was good.
S. A good selection of Rogue brews. You can also buy Rogue pint glasses. Growlers filled and 22 oz brews for sale also.
F. I didn't have any
V. The beer was resonable for the quality of the producty

I almost always make a stop here when flying back from Portland to Chicago. It has a small bar area that seats about 10 and a collection of round and square tables that seat about 75 more.
It is airport bar, so atmosphere is relative. Compared to most airport bars it is better than normal.
They have about 8 beers on tap and you have the ability to buy both growlers and bombers to take on your flight. They have at least 15 to 20 bombers to choose from including the latest seasonal offerings. . I think that is a pretty cool touch.
The food is surprisingly good and for an airport very reasonably priced. I like the Dead Guy breakfast which includes two eggs any style, your choice of meat and tater tots. Cost is less than $9. Again, cheap by airport standards.
The service is very Rogue like. They are friendly and sometimes can be good-natured smartasses. I like it.
Well worth a stop if you have some time to kill at PDX.

It was nice to find a decent bar at an International Airport for a change and one not charging rip off Airport prices! We were En route to the UK flying from Portland to Amsterdam and we had half an hour or so to kill and i needed some pre flight beer to give me some dutch courage for the flight. The Beer Selection was good, the staff efficient and friendly. I've visited other Rogue Ales Bars in Portland and San Francisco but never one at an airport. If you're flying from PDX its definitely worth a visit.

This location opened in late 2007, in-between gates D5 and D7. My third visit was on Saturday, prior to our flight to Chicago. On previous visits, I either had time for only a beer or it was too early in the morning. This time was for lunch and we had an hour to kill.
It' a moderately-sized place with Rogue regalia everywhere: Posters, banners, bottles, tabletops...even surfboards.
The selection here is excellent: I counted no less than 10 Rogues on draught (of course my first pick, the terrific, JLS 'Glen' was the only dry tap). I also counted 17 bottles available (including 5 of the 750ml XS ceramics). All bottles are available for dine-in or to-go.
Prices for beer seem a bit steep, but really no higher than the food/beer prices at the pub. $6.50 for 22 oz., $14 for a hearty and tasty platter of fish & chips. Even with my Rogue Nation card, the tab was $45 before tip for two f&c lunches and three beers (Eugene City Honey Orange Wheat, Brutal Bitter, Shakespeare Stout - nitro). In other words, the price gouge is more reflective of Rogue pricing in general, less of the PDX location.
Nice service and fairly beer-savvy. Also fast: our food orders were on the table in only about five minutes.

By far, the BEST airport pub i've ever been to. I've been to the Rogue Publichouses in Portland and Newport, and this one holds true. Rogue hasn't bent over backwards to appeal to the general crowd. Sure they have Bud and Bud Light, but they offer well over a dozen on tap, as well as 750ml ceramic bottles, 22's, and 12oz bottles.
Prices are not gouged, which is typical for airport bars.
Food menu is solid, with a lot of options. I recognize almost every menu item from the other pubs, they really havn't changed much. Had the French Dip, the missus had a Kobe burger.
Overall a damn fine pub! Like I said, the best airport bar i've ever been to...though Im reserving my final verdict for after i visit the New Belgium brewpub at Denver Intl.
Oh, and flash your Rogue Nation Citizen card and you'll get 10% off.

I have to say that this is a very welcome addition to the usual airport food court/bar scene. As you might expect, atmospere here is nothing special, with Rogue PDX consisting of a 10 seat bar area and a moderate size dining area off to the left. It really looks like pretty much any airport bar, except that in this case there is a nice selection of Rogue house beers on draft, and XS and limited release beers in bottle. One thing I found very interesting here is that they will fill a growler for you to take on board your flight. They didn't really have anything I wanted a growler of this day, but still, I thought this a very nice option.
Service here was pretty distracted, though the bartender was friendly enough. However, it did take a while to get my order, even after I finally had the chance to tell her what I wanted. Based on the Shakespere Stout I had, I would say the beer here is very fresh. The stout was on nitro, which I thought a nice touch at an airport.
This is a nice enough place, but for an airport venue it was fantastic. I'll definitely stop here again anytime I'm stuck for a while in D concourse.
Oh yes... they do give a you a discount on your beer if you show them your Rogue Nation Citizen's ID card. :-)

This is my new favorite airport bar (position previously held by Jet Rock in Philly).
There's no forgetting you're in an airport here but otherwise this place is outstanding. It's a very comfortable environment. There's a bar area on one side and table seating on the other. They have Rogue posters, signs and bottles displayed throughout.
There are about 10 beers on tap and 15+ in the bottle (all Rogue). I had a John's Locker Stock (strong ale) and a Brutal Bitter (both on draft). They were fantastic.
The food is pretty good. I had a Kobe Cheeseburger that really hit the spot.
Every airport should have one!
