Food was OK but far too pricey... tourist trap I guess. The building is a kick, lots of wood, lodge-style design with a couple of dark stairwells to climb before reaching the upstairs bar. You get a nice view of Hood River and the Columbia through a large window, up in a small room with a small bar. The imperial stout is arguably their best offering, and itís decent enough. Worth a stop at least once, but eat elsewhere.

May 2004: This place has a lot of potential, but I was way underimpressed with their beers, and the restuarant itself was kinda underkempt and uncomfortable inside. Overpriced after the mountain climb up the steps, too.

Big house overlooking Hood River with views of the Gorge on one side and a bit of a biergarten on the other. I arrived at a beer launch party so it was quite festive, despite a fairly cookie-cutter interior. Had a quesadilla, nothing special but thatís something I make really well myself so I wouldnít expect more. The beer range wasnít too bad for a brewery Iíd never heard of and the new beer (Little Red Rooster) was really good. I know Full Sail is the big name brand, but Iíd find time for both these places (and Elliot Glacier as well) if in Hood River.

Very nice building, multiple floors laid on the side of the mountain, apparently an all-timber structure. Beers are very average, available as sampler, but we had an excellent house made German style sausage (much better than all sausages we ate in Leavensworth, our next stop); the tiny cheese toast for 10$ is too expensive.
WiFi should be available but didnít work when we visited.
There is an open view over Hood River (well, not the most beautiful city).
Entering you will be welcome by a smell of grease and old house.
If in Hood River, I would go back here for the food.

I waited along time to visit this place and once I did finally go i wondered why I waited so long. They got good beer, food and the view is something else. Make 3 stops in Hoods river and this needs to be one. Cheers you will have fun just be sire to be in shape the stair case is long.

Tried on two attempts to visit during posted hours, yet they were not open. On second attempt an employee coming in some 20 minutes after posted open hours laughed and said they "needed to change that".Slackers. Will try again next time when in town and re rate, until then, fail.

Take the 63 exit, go north until the end of the road and thereís this big 3 story vertical brewpub. Good luck finding parking on a busy friday but a quarter buys you an hour on the meters. Nice fountain at the bottom and a decent hike up a few flight of stairs to get to the top restaurant/pub. Inside is fairly standard but with a wicked view of the columbia. We sat right next to the window and it kept my attention the whole time. Thereís a small stage I believe right in the ceiling space for bands, but Iím not sure. Their food was good, I had the &quo;famous&quo; clam chowder which turned out to be quite tasty. All the other items were way too expensive ($9 burgers). The 9 sampler tray was $8 and had a wide variety of beers, none were too impressive but most were well built. The service was so-so and overall it was a nice place for lunch but nothing really outside of that.

Nice building with a great view, good selection of decent beers. Food selection was good as was the quality. I was there in winter on a weekday afternoon. Lots of stairs, hard to climb, hard to get back down after several beers. The dark wheat was very good

Nice pub up on the hill with a view of the river. The food was very good, I had a small pizza that was excellent. They had 6 beers on tap or so, all good to very good quality, only one beer was a bit disapointing. Highly recommended place.

Quiet house turned brewpub is easy to find from the interstate. Parking is crowded, even during a slow part of the day. We did get a great table by the window with an amazing view of town. Food was good, but pricey. Service was better than average. Only had one beer, but it was quite good. They do offer a sampler at a reasonable price.
