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

Had lunch here on the way to the RBSG04. Good food. I kept it simple with a salad with a vinaigrette for dressing. Beers were pretty good. The building is awesome though. We sat right next to a great big ass plate glass window and got to view the entirity of Hood River while eating/sampling.

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.

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.
