Great place. The service was really extraordinary. The bartender gave us the rundown on everything they had on tap as well as some history of the lupulin fresh hop beer series. At the time, it was made with Rainier Hops, and it was disappointing to find out the Cascade version was only about a week away.

Always a treat coming here, especially when they are brewing, man I never get tired of that smell of fresh cooked grains. Great view overlooking the river. I have not tried the food in all the times I have stopped here. Always have a few first run taps and seasonals, occasionally a brewery only special which is always nice.

Just an incredible place. Ambiance is greatbeautiful scene overlooking the Hood River. Selection is hard to rate as its all Full Sail except for a few other crafts or specialties. The food was very good. I recommend the beer basted baby back ribs.

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.

First of all I love that this is an employee owned company and that they take care of the people who make the beer. Really neat! Not to mention that they take great efforts to be as environmentally conscious as possible. The brewpub was great. Awesome scenery..Columbia river... beers were great, and found í06 Boardhead on tap. I was super impressed with Full Sail.

I was somewhat disappointed with this one. Service was moderate, and food was really tasty, but it felt more like sports bar than a brewpub... Totally felt sold-out. The tap selection was the usually round of Full Sail brews with a few Brewmaster Reserve taps. It was too polished and glossy, felt like I was in a bar in an airport or ski lodge in Aspen. My advice would be to walk two blocks down and head over to the Double Mountain Brewery and Taproom. We walked by there afterwards and I had such a deep feeling of regret. Donít make the same mistake I did.

I did not have a good experience here. Too bad, because physically, it is a nice facility. I went with my wife for dinner, and we elected to sit outside because the weather was nice, and the patio seemed more pleasant than the inside seating. Once seated, we were forgotten for about 10 minutes. The service remained inattentive and detached. Food was decent, but nothing special. I only had one beer, primarily because I sat for almost 15 minutes with an empty glass, and had competed my dinner by the time the waiter returned and asked if I wanted the check. He never even asked if I wanted another beer. By that time I was so peeved, that I just wanted to get out. Itís a brewery for Godís sake!!!! I loved Hood River, but I wouldnít go back here, and there are other options within a two block walk that are much better. Besides, Full Sail is available on draft almost everywhere you go, and they didnít have anything special here that I didnít see on other tap lists in town. I was actually warned by a local not to go here. I should have listened.

On my way to the OR coast with the Fam. We stopped in for a few samples and a quick tour. Also had a Burger. Very clean and nice people. Plus A bonus of 2 Full Sail pint Glasses for going on the Tour.

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.
