Finally managed to stop by the Raccoon Lodge today. Just to try a couple of beers. Outside, I was welcomed by the lush aroma of boiling wort; a welcoming smell indeed! The downstairs bar was closed, but the brewers (I think) were down there having lunch. Went upstairs to the restaurant/pub/bar. Expansive, high ceilings, and blonde wood everywhere. Reminded me of The Great Northern (in Twin Peaks).

Sat at the bar and tried a Mouton Rouge and an 8 Monks. Both quite good. It was a low-key, mid-afternoon on a Wednesday, so there weren't many people around. Nice and relaxing vibe, though.

Perused the menu and decided I could definitely eat here at some stage. So, I will definitely be back for dinner or lunch at some point. It's a bit of a drive from where I live, which is a shame.

Great brewery, though. The sour beers and barrel aging they do is impressive. Cuvee du Jongleur is an exceptional beer in the vein of Rodenbach Grand Cru (possibly better!). Pricey, but worth it. Draft beers are very reasonably priced, however.

We stopped in to the Raccoon Lodge after visiting the Cascade Barrel House. It's an old school looking place.

It has booths that remind me of a pizza parlor with a very small bar at the front. There is glass in the dining area where you can look right into the brewing facilities. There is plenty of parking outside. This is just a simple casual place to sit and drink good beer.

The tap list was good, just slight smaller than the Barrel House. It also seemed to have more non-sours on tap from Cascade. There is a huge cooler filled with bottles for sale. They serve full pours as well as tasters/samples. Service was great, but definitely easy to manage in the smaller space.

Insider knowledge, Bourbonic Plague was $30 at The Raccoon Lodge and it was $35 at the Barrel House. Not sure if this is an oversight or what, but just a heads up. As far as bottle sales, they had similar ones that were carried at the Barrel House.

This was stop #15 for my wife and I on a 21-day pub-crawl from Michigan to N. CA and OR. We stopped here on a Friday for dinner and to try their beers. The place was busy but we were seated right away, and there were several empty tables around us. (Maybe the Friday rush was ending.) The entrance to this place was at the lower level of the building and steps up to the main floor were right inside the entrance. The interior seems more like a restaurant that a pub, but the use of wooden tables and chairs along with a good amount of wood trim helped the vibe.

We ordered a sampler of 7 of the 12 beers that were available to along with dinner. (We didn’t order any of the sours because we knew that we’d be going to the Barrel House during our trip.) The beers were all brewed to style, but none were very exciting so that all of them received a grade between a C+ and only one beer that received a B. (The Oblique B&W Stout was our favorite.) Kind of disappointing was the Scarlet Fever Imperial IPA, which we didn’t feel was very hoppy, although it was a very tasty beer.

The food menu was okay as far as the number and quality of selections, etc, but we felt that there was nothing about our selections that made them anything out of the ordinary. This is an okay place to go for good beer and food, and we’d come back again when in the area, but we think that there are other, more exciting places in town that we’d go first before making this a destination visit.
