When I'm in bottle shop, looking for tasty treats to bring home, rogue beers rarely make it into my basket. In general, I just think there are better beers out their for the price.

Having said that, I really like visiting the Rogue Public House in NW Portland. The atmosphere is exactly what I like in a pub: dark, lots of stained wood, comfortable, casual, and without pretension.

The taplist is extensive, and always has a few beers that you can't find in bottles. I also appreciate the option to try beers by the glass instead of buying the expensive 750ml ceramic bottles of the the XS series beers (although the switch to 7oz nips recently will have me grabbing a few more bottles now too).

The staff at this bar is always top notch. Compared to some of the other brew pubs in town, they tend to be some of the most knowledgeable about what they're pouring, and they're usually happy to talk to you and answer any questions you have about what's in your glass.

The food is average. There's good stuff on the menu, but nothing inspired or particularly memorable. If I need to eat, I usually get that out of the way at Deschutes, a short walk away, before making my way to rogue to relax in a comfortable pub with a glass or a pint.

The prices for the beer are a bit higher than other bars charge when serving rogue stuff, but I understand the businesses decision not to under-cut their biggest customers - the other bars around town.

To get around paying extra, join the rogue nation, which is free, and entitles you to a discount on every beer you order.

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

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
