This was the second brew pub/brewery I ever visted, but I credit Rogue with starting my fascination and love affair with great beer.

Easily one of my favorite brew pubs on the face of the earth. In my opinion, Rogue beer is second to none. The bar tender was most friend and generous (with free beer samples). We were the only people in the pub until 5:00 pm when it seems that most of the community stopped in for a beer and to watch the sunset over the bay. I can't say enough good things about this place.

Stayed at the bed and beer for me and my wive's one year anniversary. Since i'm also a rogue citizen it only cost us about $80 bucks a night, plus all my pints where half off. What made me want to go in the first place was Rogue's Brew master, personally shipped me a bottle of Chatoe Rogue pumpkin patch ale. (It was only available on the West Coast this year) The staff was extremely friendly at the bed and beer, ale houses, and the brewery. For anyone who is a fan of rogue you must take a chance to visit the brewery. Coming from Ohio, the selection probably seemed much better to me, but it definitely had the Ohio breweries beat on selection.

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.

Visited the Brewery and Distillery next door, and sampled several good beers that, I can't get in Ohio. Very good selection of taps and beer was served very good and at right temp. Bartenders were very attentive and helpful. Didn't eat anything since I was spending the night at the public house across the bay. But took the tours of both the Brewery and Distillery.

Highly recommend the tours a lot of fun, very informative, at least the tour guide I had was, and overall a great place to visit.

I'd highly recommend taking a tour of their new Distillery, very fun and the Master distiller usually give the tour and is a lot of fun to talk to and great at answering questions. Will be back next time I'm in Oregon, a truly awesome beer experience. Recommend it to all thirty travelers, much more than the Public House.

Our first brewery experience, and it was awesome. Stopped by during our road trip out to Oregon. Sat upstairs overlooking Newport Bay, eating buffalo meatballs and drinking Chipotle Ale and Shakespeare's Oatmeal Stout. My son loved Rogue's Rootbeer and got a free Frisbee. We had a great experience and look forward to going back.

If your in the area, this brewery is a must. The food was very good, the beer selection was fantastic. The beer server was full of information on ALL the beers poured from the tap a bottles. Spent two hours and that still wasn't enough time. Had a ball!

Had dinner and a beer on a slow night. The bartender chatted with us and was very nice. They give a free sample when you come in, and we got the Chatoe Dirtoir Black Lager. I had an Old Crustacean on tap and it was delicious. I then got a sandwich which had raw red onions so my beer palate was shot. I am going again soon and I look forward to it. I bought about 8 bottles in the giftshop. I highly recommend it if you are in Newport.

I didn't get to go on a tour but you can clearly see barrels aging John John when you walk in. The giftshop has great prices with no tax. I bought John John for 6.25 and it is 9.29 at my local store.

True to their name, the tours at Rogue are not your average brewery experience. They only occur if people show up and if someone is on hand to lead it. Generally, tours get going at 4, to take part, check in with the bartender of gift shop clerk shortly before hand.

The tour is a good one, they are proud of their black sheep ways and their cost cutting techniques that give the brewery and by entension, their beers, so much character. You'll see the bottling line (third-hand), their fermentation tanks (old dairy vessels), the old school kegs with bungs and their not quite finished office space. The tour guide that day had a good sense of humor and the smarts to bring along a glass of beer along with him and provided a fun, informative tour.

The bar/restaurant upstairs is spare in decor but big on service and providing as many rogue beers as possible. The food menu is similar to their brewpub over on the other side of Newport with the standard pub fare available.

The gift shop offers a big selection of rogue beers by the bomber, the six pack or the case. They also had a selection of shirts, hats, glasses etc.

A worthwhile vist if you're in town and have some time to kill after visiting the aquarium or something. If you're looking for a night out, head across the bay to the brewpub, they are in a better part of town for hanging out in.
