Late on a Sunday night, when you're staying nearby and La Trappe is, unfortunately, closed, I can recommend stopping in here.
Met up with a friend who happened to be in town and we wandered by several nearby places until we found ourselves outside of Rogue.
The place wasn't terribly busy, so we seated ourselves and went to the bar for our beers. Two large blackboards (one in each room) had the Rogue beers and guest beers on tap. We sat in the far room and were disappointed several times when we made our way up to the bar and the tap list didn't match. Oh well, we still had good beer. Rogue Old Crustacean, 21st Amendment Bitter American, Sierra Nevada Harvest, etc.
I wouldn't call this a dive bar, but the bathroom may qualify as having been transplanted from one.
I was informed the kitchen was closed, but the bartender suggested bringing in food from next door. So in less than 5 minutes I came back with Pad Thai to go with my beer.
It sounds like it's best to go here when it's not overwhelmingly busy. I enjoyed it, and it was convenient. Most importantly, it was open and we walked by it.
