Great memories of both the Public House and the bar at the brewery.
We came so the owner, Jack Joyce could perform a marriage thing for 2 friends of mine which was a strange dream of my buddy tying his knot.
The Rogue folks and the local crowd couldn't have been more welcoming. Every Rogue beer was available on tap (except Skullsplitter) and some on cask - I think this was '97 or ;98.
We stayed the night up stairs, in the rental rooms. We woke to find a wonderful smokable gift left by the last guests so we returned the favor.
The brewery offered great deals on bottles and shwag and the bar upstairs ( this was 11 am- I was alone) had Skullsplitter on tap - I'm there were other beers too but...
Make the trip - drink the beer - stay the night. You'll be glad ya did.

heck yeah! finally made it to rogue proper, after hitting their public house across the water last year, it was great to finally visit the place where this all comes from, i have been on these beers as long as i can remember and it feels like a pilgrimage complete to finally have a beer in here. it was a bummer they didnt allow dogs, but its a full brewpub with restaurant so i totally get it. a funky entrance to the place down under the bridge, you walk through a big red tank, then down a series of hallways to the taproom, in our experience we then wrapped around another corner, went up a flight of stairs, through another dining area, and finally arrived at an awesome little back bar area overlooking both the brewery and the bay, super cool place to be seated and the bartender there was rad. he shared free samples, knew a lot about the beers, and had a great passion for the liquid and the company, those types of people make an experience for sure. we all got tasting flights and shared the beers around. the highlights included the morimoto soba ale which i have somehow missed until now, the chipotle version of the rolling thunder barrel aged imperial stout, a couple of beat fruit beers in a strawberry summer ale and a kriek inspired wild one, and the sour ipa, but i liked just about all of it. these guys continue to have some of the most ambitious and exciting beers for the adventurous palate, and i appreciate that this spirit has not been lost. the space is old school as heck, feels like a dive from the 80s, with old yellowing pictures on the walls, beat up wood tables and bar top giving it character, and a ton of homegrown coziness. we didnt eat but the kitchen smelled good from where we sat. prices were fair, the selection was tremendous, and it was a lot of fun to finally hit this brewery, they are an institution, have been for a long time, and my fandom only runs deeper after having visited. recommended!

Another frequented brewery we would always go to. Their selection at the downtown Portland location is massive. Ask for the Snickers if you go. They should pour the Imperial Chocolate Stout with the Hazelnut Nectar instead of the regular Chocolate Stout and Hazelnut Nectar.

What a great place. Sitting above the brewery with a view of the water. Great friendly service. Food was fine. Rouge has been around a relatively long time and quite frankly most of the beers I can obtain in DC area stores have been average at best (Note to Rogue - I hate your label style, it turns me off), but this visit and the beers I had on tap at the brewery really changed my mind. Too bad this location is on the west coast and then still out of the way. Wish this tap room was in my neighborhood cause I would visit all the time.

Rogue was one of the first breweries I really got into at the start of my craft beer voyage, so I had to check out their world headquarters as we passed through. Unique warehouse set up and feel, but like a gritty actually working one, not a cleaned up gentrified re-purposed one. Bar upstairs fells kinda like a time capsule back to the 90s. Our bartender was took great care of us as I revisited a couple of beers I hadn't had, much less seen in my area, for years, before I joined BA. Solid selection with a little something for everyone. Some hits, some misses, zero regrets. Wish I had time to jump in on the tour, but we had to keep moving. Might have to come back.

Sat in the bar on a Wednesday evening. Not much of crowd so no waiting and service was excellent. Food was quite good and my wife loved the halibut fish & chips. Says its the best she has ever had! I enjoyed the mac 'n cheese that went well with my taster flight. I'm not a Rogue fan and feel their beers are overrated, but really enjoyed their seasonal pumpkin ale.

I've yet to be truly disappointed by any of the Rogue offerings. However, there's a certain level of "safety" in their beer. They're one of my go to breweries just because I know I'm at least going to get some enjoyment out of any thing they have to offer.

Enjoyed my visit at Rogue. Tried a lot of beers, but the taproom is not very inviting with a weird setup. Good selection of their beers.

Not overly thrilled. I live here, and Rogue has always been the Icon for breweries on the coast. Well they have sure fallen under the "It's good enough for the Coast" philosophy.

Although the beer is genuinely unique and interesting, the food fare and restaurant ambiance leaves much to be desired. My family and I were seated downstairs in what I would describe as overflow seating for lunch as we had two small children with us. Tables from some picnic area, red and white checkered tablecloths cut and pieced together, no view of the brewery operations although given enough thought, it could be. The view of the harbor was great but the seagull excrement on the windows not only made you not want to look out but ruined the eating experience. The areas under the tables were collection areas for dropped food and the scraps wiped from the tabletops and seating areas. The kids lived their grilled cheese sandwich and naked cheeseburger (kind of hard to screw those up) and the free frisbee, but my buttermilk oysters were obviously frozen pre-breaded concoctions thrown into a deep fryer and cooked beyond done. They were little more than deep fried batter with oyster flavor. To their credit, they comp-ed the meal. The grilled ruben sandwich was reportedly mediocre.

My Irish Lager was a little too DMS, canned corn for my tastes although it would have probably been better had it been below 55 degrees when served. The Mead was excellent, however.

Low scores are not for the beer, but for the experience and poor food. It is the Pacific Northwest for crying out loud!

Go for the Beer, but in my opinion; find another place for lunch.

This was the brewery that got me interested in beer as a complex and flavorful beverage rather than simply the drink of choice among buzz seeking frat boys. I have since expanded my horizons to other breweries in other states, but I still find myself coming back to Rogue.
