Big industrial looking building that you have to walk through in a small hallway to find the taproom. Simple set up of small bar with some round tables to sit and drink and watch the river. A wall of merchandice as well. Decent folks, worth stopping to find something which isnít bottles or widely available yet, but also for good deals on bottles.

May 2004: Full Sail was probably a neat little brewery at one time, but now itís getting pretty big, and the feel at their outlet in Hood River is starting to show it. But the view was pretty good and Full Sail makes some decent beers, so Iíd say itís worth a stop.

Friendly staff sold me bottles to go first thing in the morning before they were open yet. I ended up back there before the end of the day anyway. A few specials, brewed at their PDX location, are available in addition to their regular range. Overlooks both I-84 (bad) and the Columbia River (good) in a big, bright open space.

[Fathers Day Brewery Tour 2006]
Full Sail Brewery was a great place to visit for my first Fathers day. My wife asked what I want to do and since it was my day I wanted to check out Full Sail and a few others around that area. Full Sail is quite a drive up the Gorge but once there it was a beauty with a view to die for. The wind was kicking up so the surfers where in Full Sail on the water. LOL Had a great time the tour was awesome that was cleanest place I have ever seen. Loved the tasters and the beer by the pint had some great styles and experimental brews. We had a lovely lunch and enjoyed ourselves quite a bit. Must say the wait staff needs work but I guess the burned out surfer crowd would careless so the old burned out surfers serving surfers is ok. It is a must stop for any beer lover. Plus there are 2 other beer places in town also so it makes for a big day if you wanted to hit 3 within a Ĺ mile of each other.

My wife and I stopped in here on a day trip along the Columbia River Gorge. Hood River is a cool town and the brewery plays up the windsurfing theme that itís popular for. The place looks like a big production brewery from outside but the pub is cozy, warm, and vibrant, with a tiered deck with tables that overlook the river. The tap list has the standards and a handful of seasonals; plenty of stuff Iíd never tried or heard of. Bombers are only $4 there, which was awesome. We didnít eat but the food looked solid. Waitress was good but busy because it was crowded. No one was on the deck because of the rain. Overall, an excellent place. Make the trip up the gorge and visit here if youíre in or near Portland.

Very cool tasting room and a first class tour of the facility. Free pint glass at the end of the tour when I visited in the Spring of 2009.

The tap room at the brewery has a fantastic view across the river into Washington, but otherwise pretty standard interior - with a long bar. The service was friendly, after a tour of the brewery we were taken thru all the beers available - also some limited edition brews - nice. All in all I had 8 new beers. The burger I had was good. Iíll swing by if Iím in Hood River again.

Visited here for the 2nd time in August í12 (first time was Pre-RB day in 2001). Enjoyed a wonderful dinner overlooking the gorge - great locally organic grown food for the most part. Had the Greek gyro - delicious. Had about 18 of their beers on tap with their standards as well as local selections brewed by their own staff for sale only there. All were above average. Service is energetic and friendly. Took the tour on my way back through several days later. Very personable and friendly. Worth a trip to Hood River if in the Portland area.

Its been a long time since i had been here, but i have a great story about this place. I came to this place with very little knowledge of Full Sail at the time. I got up to the bar and the lady serving the beers was very friendly. She asked me what kind of beers I liked and i told her "hoppy ones". She gave me a sample of their pale ale, their ipa and their sunspot, which was only a tap beer at that time. They also had closouts of Pale, IPA and IMPERIAL PORTER back when it was 12oz bottles (2001). at $4 a 6 pack, i stocked up to say the least!

I visited Full Sail while roadtripping through Oregon and Washington. We arrived just in time to get a brewery tour. While the tour wasnít anything you wouldnít get at any other similar sized brewery, it was fun and informative. After the tour we got to try all the beers they had on tap which was around 8-10. The tasting room was really nice, and the town was really cool. Hopefully I will be able to make it back to Hood River and Full Sail in the future.
