Visited Thursday, July 17. Intimate little shop right across from the Tillamook air museum, inside a small little industrial’commercial complex. Cozy ambiance with a wooden fence look on the walls, laminated bottle art mosaics, and a fair number of tables and chairs in its three rooms. Granted, I’m not a huge fan of barrel tables; they’re next to impossible to write on - fortunately, i was able to grab one of the stools. It was very busy on this night; lines out the door all night for the bottle release. (It was not my reason for visiting, and though, I certainly don’t begrudge such busyness, I was also hoping to avoid it. Not exactly their fault for being popular, right?) Service was both efficient and personable, prices were excellent - even for the bottles which one could drink at the location, and altogether I’m pretty sure that whenever I’m in the area, I’ll stop by again.

An interesting place. I’d imagine that a lot of visitors are driving out from Portland and the drive is really quite beautiful from the city. It’s about how long it takes me to get from Orange County to San Diego, so not that bad, either...stop complaining, Oregon people.
The tasting room is quite small. A bar that really consists of just a kegerator on wheels (and there’s a second one). They have a handful of beers on tap and a bottle list that seems to rotate regularly depending on what has just run out. While we were there (only really an hour and change), three different bottled beers sold out...and we got there right when they opened.
Anyway, aside from the main portion of the tasting room, there is a second area you can hang out in. You can poke your head into one of their barrel storage areas, too. Tables are also present outside to sit and drink, which is quite nice on a summer day.
Prices are really quite good and fair on everything, which is pretty much a staple in Oregon, it seems. The beers are generally good and of course, they’re all sour-ish.
It can be hard to pull yourself out of the city, I’m sure, but I thought it was well worth it to come out here and I was initially skeptical about doing so. Also, if you have some time, it’s a short drive to the Tillamook Cheese/Ice Cream factory and you can also go check out the awesome Oregon coast. If you’re really adventurous, go north to Astoria and check out the Goonies house.

Another mini-mecca stop. Out in the middle of nowhere, but still more of a warehouse than a farmhouse. Surprisingly not busy on a Friday evening, with an eclectic mix of locals and the occasional beer bro. Some outdoor seating, and a few tables inside as well. Full pours are $4, or a flight of 3 four ounce tasters (no choices) are $8. Only one person working the tiny little service bar. She was really nice and clearly knew her beer. Bottle orders handled blazingly fast. They had 5 of their own taps running, plus a couple of guest taps (including Pallet Jack IPA for the sour haters) and at least nine bottles for onsite consumption, including multiple imperial bus. Also a half dozen bottles to go, with limits ranging from 1-6 per beer. Prices ungodly cheap. Really friendly laid back vibe. World class.

Une route enchanteresse pour se rendre à Tillamook mais un local de dégustation modeste et froid pour la qualité de l’endroit. Ce côté-là, ils pourront toujours l’améliorer. Pour le reste, c’est un temple du funk aussi excitant que possible.

I went for an event, so may not represent a regular day. Nice front space with an outdoor little area. In the middle of nowhere, so lots of parking and quiet. Service is great, especially if the owners are about. Selection is a few taps and bottles, to popular to have much sticking around. No food. Prices are cheap and quality is awesome. One of my favorite new brewers. A must if you are on a pilgrimage for great beer.

The new place is in the middle of nowhere, a few minutes on the highway from downtown Tillamook in an unsuspecting location. Really lovely small interior with barrels as tables. On our visit, there was 4 De Garde beers on tap (all Bus), and 1 guest tap from Block 15, available to try all in sampler tray for $6, which I thought was reasonable. They also had 6 bottles available for purchase. Very friendly service. A must-hit stop when nearby.

Great beer, great service, set a up a little strange, weird small ’cubby’ style rooms. Definitely worth the stop.

I visited at the grand opening of the new taproom. The downtown location is closed, and the taproom is now located at the brewery. It is twice the size compared to the old TR and has outside seating as well. The tables were made from repurposed 100yr old cognac barrels that they couldn’t get to swell. It’s still a bit cozy, but WAY better than the old location. No food and this unfortunately means that minors aren’t allowed on the premises. The beer is always fantastic and they usually have something in bottles to go. de Garde is off the hook!

Small and unassuming, with re-purposed barrels, a small bar and a sofa serving as furniture. Lots of parking on the street, reasonable prices, good service. Oh yeah, the beer is pretty good, too. :)

Hell of a cool place. On a Thursday, early Spring. No tourists, just me an some locals. A few dudes roll in looking for Hefes, but instead drink sours! Haha. Tiny place. Excellent service. Had some bottles to go. No kids allowed. I love going to places like this that are mellow and totally local. Too bad the hoarders are on the prowl and will try to ruin this place. But I think the management is pretty well aware of this, and hopefully it will stay what it is: a great local brewery committed to a wonderful craft. I think the location helps: man, try getting to Tillamook from anywhere! The drive down 6 was wonderful, just a bit of a challenge. Anyway, fun place. Good luck!
