We have visited this oregon staple a few times over the last year. As one of oregons founders, leaders, and innovators of craft beer its nice to see that they dont have a very high end thought of themselves like some other brewery's.

A huge warehouse building near downtown, sprawling over a few blocks, its quite the sight. Entering the brewpub itself down a wavy hallway, its very inviting, open and has a great view of the river.

Service has always been friendly, very knowledgable, and helpful. Food is pretty good, a bit higher end for the area I would say, but still rather inexpensive and delicious. Beers seem to be the regular lineups, with a few seasonals, and one of's. I wish they would have more than just the regulars, I love to go to a well established company and try beer that is not well established at all, but having a pint of even something classic where its brewed is still great.

The tour is really where this place shines, one of the best we have been on. Very knowledgable, able to answer questions, and you even get a free pint glass at the end! We've been on it twice, once was a day when the plant wasnt really operating, the second they were in full production. Unlike many other brewery tours you get to be right beside everything, right in the middle of the action versus walking on high balconies just watching.

Wonderful place overall, wish it was closer so we could visit more often.

Another go to brewery we would always stop at after a day of hiking the Columbia Gorge waterfall trails. If you attempt to do Mt. Defiance, this would be a great place to remedy the pain afterwards. Always good beer and employee owned.

We stopped here on a Saturday morning in early June 2018 on our trip to the great NW and to Mt. Hood.
Hood River appeared to be an eclectic community. The view from the brewery of the Columbia River, even on this overcast day, was worth our stop.
It was lunch time and the service was quite good and my burger was excellent.
Enjoyable stop at a one to the top Craft Breweries in the USA.

I am a consumer of Full Sail and know no Trader Joes employee personally or by affiliation whatsoever w the exception of shopping at Trader Joes.
This is a great tasting Amber... and has a great drinkability.
It is difficult to make a truly great Amber, such as Anchor Steam.
You can drink like 4-6 and not have any undesireable digestive talk-back from this beer after wards.
Theres a reason why Trader Joes picked up this Amber to distribute in their stores.
Its an amazing beer from Oregon, USA.

cool to see one of the old school northwest breweries in the flesh. they occupy a huge block of prime real estate right in hood river, overlooking the river, and everything appears clean and new from the outside, considering how long they have been around. spacious facility, definitely the big boys in town here. the tap room is bustling, and the patio is absolutely packed. not surprising since the views there are gorgeous. i was surprised by how many beers they had on tap, looks like quite a few brewery exclusives. what surprised me more than anything though was the quality of the beer. i though with the whole session line and everything that these guys were more focused on volume than true craft quality, but i shut up about that pretty quickly. the oatmeal pale ale was simply amazing, full bodied and really fresh and flavorful, distinct, and nearly flawless. the other beers we had here were excellent as well. they were super busy but the bartender still took some time to be personal with us, and the other guests were all super friendly and chatty. this exceeded my (perhaps too low) expectations, the beer was great and the vibe was cool. looking forward to another visit and hopefully a tour this time.

Great place to sit and hang for a little or long while. Limited selection of beer unless you love FS, then you are in heaven. Food is consistently good, but nothing unique. Great place to stop and watch the water from though. Beers are always high quality for a larger scale craft brewery and the staff is always friendly and on it.
