The layout of this place is a bit odd. It's kind of divided into three spaces: a dining area, a cramped bar, and a smaller back-bar area with a TV and really low cielings (I got the feeling that area could possibly be reserved for groups/meetings/etc.).

I didn't try the food. I was just there for a pint or two while I was killing some time downtown. People are ranting about the service here, but I guess I'm somewhat indifferent on that score based on my experience. I just walked up to the bar, ordered a beer, and sat down in the "smaller back-bar area". There only seemed to be three or four servers (one of them was the barteneder) and it was kind of busy, so it's not really surprising if the level of service suffers. Not that this is an excuse for being a shitty waiter/waitress. Just saying. All the same, I got my pint within the standard turnaround time at a bar, so whatever.

Bottom line: go here if you are a fan of Rogue Ales and you want access to a large cross-section of their beers. If you're just looking for a nice afternoon/evening at a good Portland brewpub, there are better places to go (like New Old Lompoc or Deschutes).

A biased review, as this is my all-time favorite brewery. The Hazelnut Brown Ale is great at retail but it is better than any beer I have ever had on tap here! Dead Guy Ale is always a good choice. Nice unique setting. 10's all around

Nice out side seating. Good selection. Had rogue's dead guy, chipotle ale, 7 hop, american amber ale, and a shot of rogue's whiskey. service was great, joined the Rogue nation for the discount. Also grabbed so bombers to go.

Cool spot, while visiting Portland for work it was walking distance from my hotel downtown. Grabbed a burger and enjoyed a few beers here, including the Beard Beer (had to do it). Good selection and food, would definitely come back.

Neat spot with some great Rogue brews. Picked up a growler of Old Crustacean - as if I needed that at the end of a long day of drinking. We had an absolute blast. Neat vibe, lots of fun - great beer - merch and growlers! Check 'em out.

Very cool spot. Very mellow night scene. Quirky bartenders. TONS of Rogue beers and liquors on draft. They have their liquor stills sitting out for everyone to see. We just got one appetizer (hummus plate) and it was definitely one of the best hummus dishes I've ever had. I will be frequenting this place when me and Amanda move here in two months
