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.

First of all, I love rogue beers in general. My girlfriend and I made a special trip while in Portland to go to Newport just to go here. It was worth it! Atmosphere was very good. We got to take a look at the brewery. Quality of beers were great( as to be expected). Almost all the beers we tried were very good and they had special beers as well that were not readily available. The food was good and it was the only part that was not exceptional. Prices of beer were very reasonable. Food was a little overpriced.

After a long day of traveling from the East Coast the sight of the brewery under the bridge was a welcome respite. Best of all there are a couple of hotels within walking distance to the brewery.

The entrance to the bar and restaurant is through the brewery itself, nothing like the smell of a brewery to get you going. A small gift shop with Rogue merchandise and beers is on the first floor once you get through the brewery and before you head upstairs to the bar and dining area.

We visited 2 nights midweek so there was no wait for seating and the service was excellent. Several tables overlook Yaquina Bay though in general the atmosphere was more utilitarian, which for us is perfect. We came for beer. It is also kid-friendly with food options and a Lego table.

The beer selection was outstanding, with standard Rogue offerings, specialty/seasonals as well as a few guest brews. Altogether it was a great experience and we would definitely recommend stopping by if are in or passing through Newport.
