Stationed up on the south bank of the columbia river, Full Sail has a spectacular view. The interior of the bar is clean and tidy. Outside deck area is very comfortable as well. I stopped in with some friends to get a bit of lunch the. Went on the brewery tour. Our tour guide was a nice guy, though at times it's seemed as if he had done it so many times the words were beginning to loose their meaning. We had a small group so we got him a little detailed from his talking points and were able to carry some cool conversation about full sail and thier beer. Back up at the pub, the tour guide popped in, tha Jed us for taking the tour and gave us some little trinkets and brewery swag. The bar offers almost all of Full sail's offerings as well as one or two pub specials. Their whole lineup is solid, so if you're visiting from out of state, try a sampler. The server was a young woman who was attentative and pretty quick with service. (though I haven't been there at one of the more busy times) food is on par with places like Deschutes public house, it's better than average pub food.

Lovely site overlooking the gorge.

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.

Full Sail has the feeling of a big, corporate brewery/brewpub but during the summer the outdoor seating with views of the Columbia make up for it. The food is decent for a brewpub. I might be a little bit generous with a 4/5 on that one, but it's not bad. Their standard beers are decent and they occasionally have some interesting limited editions on hand. There's usually something on nitro.

People will underrate their beer because it's nationally distributed. People will underrate their space because it's decidedly not pretentious. But I'll be damned if I can think of a better way to spend a warm afternoon (after a morning hiking or kayaking) than by sitting on the deck at Full Sail, beer in hand, soaking the ridiculous view of the Columbia River. Such an awesome place.
