we arrived near the tail end of our journey to the center of the earth and wandered into the brewery. all rogue ale's on tap, of course, but about 20+ of them. got to try some of the new stuff, first growth series, john john, all that jazz. met with john the head distiller, who's an evergreen alum, and he was anxiously anticipating the awesomeness that would be the wine and seafood festival. we also got to run around the brewhouse briefly with mr. maier..pretty impressive place. bartenders were both very informative and friendly. i've had food here before but not this time and i remember it being delightful if not outstanding.

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.
