Visited for lunch on a weekday. Not a lot going on so service was great and beers were excellent. Food was good, but not the highlight.

Stormy Wednesday night in February. Two stories rebuilt commercial building. I think there's more to the place than I saw. I lucked out it's Stout Month so as far as I'm concerned the beer selection was great. :-) Different food downstairs and up. Pizzas upstairs, that's where we went, hit the spot. Good sweet desserts. Slightly different tap lists up and downstairs but our first server -- they rotate but it was never a problem--ran downstairs for tasters for me. No charge tasters, very nice. Kid friendly upstairs.

Beers fit my taste. Lots of chocolate, coffee, roasty flavors. I liked Viva La Stout a lot, Mexican chocolate beer; and May The Oats Be With You, good oatmeal (duh) stout. These were specials/seasonals for Stout Month. My honey ordered a Plaid Scotch Ale. She approved, I tasted it, it's a Scotch Ale but sorry I didnt pay much attention.

I liked this establishment. :-)

Hit the Duane Vibe was fairly nice, with the L shaped bar that had room for maybe ten to twelve guest. Smallish in the main floor with some high tables in the bar area and regular tables in the "dining" area.

Quality of the one beer I had was very good.

Service was OK as I stood at the bar waiting for someone to pour a pint. But to their credit they were very busy as we had a 1/2 hour wait on a Tuesday afternoon at 2:30?!? Biz is obviously good there.

Selection was pretty good as I believe they had 14 brews on tap.

Did not try the food.

Overall this is a high quality brewpub with a solid lineup that is worthwhile to be a destination if you are in the region. 3 Way IPA is definitely a winner!

Great place to end our drive up the OR coast, not to mention conveniently located a block off the main street. My wife & I sat in the pub, which was fairly busy early on a Sunday evening. All the beers we tried were good but it was the food that really stood out. I had the albacore fish & chips, which was much more hearty than the cod/whitefish you get in your standard Midwest fish fry. Now, looking back, I wonder if the tuna came from a can, but at the time I was hungry and didn't care. It was delicious regardless. The fish came on a generous bed of fries (chips) that were also excellent. My wife opted for the sausage sampler. The "hot and spicy" italian sausage wasn't hot at all but again, we didn't care and ate it anyway.

Service was efficient. Our server was attentive but not especially chatty. Prices seemed reasonable for the area. We would have liked to stay longer and sample more of their beers but sadly, we had to make our way back to Portland.

Make sure you visit the barrel room across the courtyard in the other building. Exceptional!

One of the best brew pubs I've ever been to. They have an upstairs area which looks newer and has a restaurant feel to it. A downstairs which has a more "bar" look to it. And a tap room, which was closed when we were there. The three areas have different menus which was weird.

Ate in the pub in the upstairs area. Great views of the Columbia river and cool breeze coming thru the windows. Good mix of small tables and large community style tables. They even had board games that you could borrow to play with while there.

Had the full flight. 13 tasters for $17. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the beers and food. The beers felt out of order as we went in order many milder beers followed strong ones causing two of them to literally taste like water. The vortex, 3-way IPA, Nut red, working girl porter were my favorites. Divinity and sunshine OPA were my wife's favorites.

Friendly service all around. Great facility that is the latest thing open in Astoria. The upstairs area has a big city gastropub look/feel in a small town. Great menu, bottles, growlers and swag to go. Loved the experience but didn't like that we had to moveto the downstairs venue to get the desert we wanted. But the desert was excellent and the great service did continue downstairs. Hope to return sometime.
