This is the big ship for Rogue. It is also the site of the Newport Brew Fest. A strange place to get to. Through the warehouse following the yellow tape road. Into the teaser store and up to the pub on oneside with a family friendly cafe on the other. I mostly go to the bar and order a sampler. Almost everything Rogue makes is available plus some guest beers at times.

My wife ordered the sampler for me a few weeks ago and then had me try to identify the beer in a blind tasting. Failed everyone. Got the styles ok but off on the specific beers. Guess I'll have to try again and again until I get it right.

You can watch the bottling line if its running or sit and watch the bay while you drink and eat average pub food. It is always great to visit the HQ and a good place to get cases at special prices. I got some close out Jazz Guy Ale and Trolley Ale a year ago and several of the 15th Anniversary this year.

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.
