Terminal Gravity Brewing Is a truly great Oregon Craft Brewery. In the mountians of eastern Oregon Enterprise is a great place to enjoy a great beer.
The people working there are down to earth, and make you feel right at home. This brewpub is everything I think a brewpub should be.
The food is great and the beer are truly world class. I belive that the only beer that they bottle is their IPA. In my mind it is the best IPA money can buy. On tap their ESG (Extra Special Golden) is also a truly great beer. If you ever get the chance dont pass up an Ale at Terminal Gravity Brewing in Enterprise, Oregon.

I'm jealous of Enterprise for having a great brewpub. They had a about ten of their brews on tap. We had a lunch, the food was great. The service was good, but there was only one person serving and running the bar. Understandable for a Monday afternoon. I liken the outdoor area to the NW version of a biergarten. Some picnic tables in a little garden with a creek running through it. I made a special stop here driving between Coeur d'Alene and Portland. Well worth it.

The quality of food and beer was very good and the atmosphere was very unique. A cool old house that provide outdoor seating with flowing creeks and plenty of shade to relax in. The bar was small but the space is limited, all food was local and it showed. Would highly recommend a visit if you are in the area

If you like visiting places for their beauty along with the upside of tipping back a few cold ones from a local place then Terminal Gravity is the place for you! Enterprise is a tiny town at the base of the Wallowa mountains. What a breathtaking sight! This small town has super friendly locals and is a cool side stop before heading to west to Pendleton. I really like the Terminal Gravity IPA. Very tastey and fun to drink with the locals that will sit and tell you interesting stories for hours. This is definitely a fun little stop

Finally got to TG, after years of planning a 4th of July camping trip to Wallowa State Park. It's a good sized facility with a pub in a converted house. It can be very relaxing out front in the yard with the small stream and trees, or in the tiny pub. It's all very nice, and exactly what one would expect in such an off the beaten path brewery.

The quality of the beer was top notch. I knew their two bottled beers, but was surprised to see the full strength brews they have for the pub. I had a couple of imperial pilsners, while the wife had a very tastey porter.

It's small, remote pub in a tiny, tiny town. Don't expect a bunch of hipster beer geeks and servers with masters degrees. Just play along and have a good time at a great Oregon brewery.

Everyone in Oregon knows their bottled beers. The ESG and IPA. I've always found both to be solid go-to type brews. They also have a few keg only beers that don't get around the state so much. These were really good. There's not a huge number of taps, but because of the ESG, there will be something even for the noobs to drink.

A small, simple menu. But, and much to my disbelief, I had by far and away the greatest buffalo burger I have ever had here. This place seems to know taste.

Prices were nothing extravagant,and considering it was the best buffalo burger I ever had, it might even be underpriced.

*Also, something I wanted to include was that they have a local glassblower make pint glasses. It was the first time I saw this and thought it was a great idea. The glasses were really cool.

Visited with much better half 8.8.10.

Located in remote Enterprise in the beautiful Wallow Mountain range, Terminal Gravity is one of the most remote, and renowned, breweries in the state of Oregon. Located in a converted yellow house with the brewery attached, the taproom, which had no seating, featured all the regular TG beers, along with a superb set of seasonals, including a Double IPA, a (disappointing) Cascadian Dark Ale, a beer referred to as a Triple (actually an American Strong Ale) and the piece d'resistance, an Imperial IPA of 9.0% ABV. I started with the CDA (too much chocolate malt) and finished with the Imperial IPA, which I would certainly recommend.

The food was quite tasty, we shared a humongous plate of hummus with pita slices, feta cheese, vegetables, etc. We also had the wild Sockeye salmon sandwiches, while my tail piece was a bit dried out the nice ciabatta bun was quite good. They also have buffalo burgers (locally sourced), a variety of salads, but no deep fried food.

The outdoor seating, consisting of a front porch with a couple of small tables, and about 10 picnic tables strategically placed under trees by a babbling brook (and across the street from the porta-potty parking lot) was quite relaxing, though the screaming kids and barking dog (read the sign, no dogs) made for a boisterous environment.

The only downside was the surly young female barkeep who was either having a bad day or just had a bad attitude. The young ladies serving the food were exceptionally nice and geniunely wanted to help, smiles on their face, while Ms. Surly was just plain grumpy.

They feature some merchandise (all out of the XL T-Shirts), bottles to go, and growlers of regular brews for $9.50 with the seasonals priced at $11, a pretty good score for beer of this quality.

Unlike the previous reviewer, being a resident of Eastern Oregon, TG and its fellow EO brewery, Barley Brown's, speak to me regularly. If you have the time to listen, and the patience to travel far from Beervana in search of the other Oregon Beer Experience, you will be pleasantly surprised, and rewarded with some first class beer.

What a cool story. Coming back from the fresh hop festival in Yakima, we stop in around 11am, they don't open until 4. Owner(s), who were already busy handling brewing aspects, let us in, hook us up w/ all free beer, chat us up, just the whole 9 yards. Hospitality. We won't forget it.

Anyways, truth be told, I was never big on these guys. Their bottles beers, the ipa and gold, never really spoke to me. But then, I had a bunch of their stuff that was tap only. Damn, if these guys don't bottle their two worst beers in my opinion, and keep all the great stuff for themselves! Great stout and imperial ipa. Super cozy area.
