Visited during the day. Very old school place, as expected. Playing cringe-worthy music when we were there. The selection is about what you would expect, with nothing bad but nothing outstanding either. Itís kind of sad they havenít modernized the business as the whole operation has a tired feel about it. However, I do like what theyíre doing with their farm and their goal of vertical integration. That is awesome. Of course, itís also an institution and worth a visit if you have time but if youíre tight for time, Iíd give all the old school Portland breweries downtown a miss and head straight for the more elite ones on the other side of the river.

Normally, I like well worn places, but this place was dirty. Service was fine, but the bartender was making stuff up when he didnít know the answer. I thought that since I was at the source, I would finally find a Rogue beer that I liked, but I still have never had one that I liked.

Visited December 11 2013. Impressive tap list of their own beers: regular, seasonal and also many specials. Quite large set of glasses, wear and other stuff available. I didnt get the point of "no cell phones"-signs?

Visited this public tap house the other day for the first time and now consider myself a convert. The bar has a great ambiance with rogue beer and memorabilia taking up most of the visual space. The benches in the bar area give it a neat rustic feel as well. The service was phenomenal; every question I had, and even some I did not have about the beers were answered knowledgeably. I was blown away by the selection as well; about 30 beers on tap when I visited, primarily Rogue. I know that they serve food, but I did not dine there so I can not speak on that. The value of the beer was very good as well. Taster trays of four beers were $6.50, and the seasonal is just handed out as a taster when you walk in. Overall, I would say that this is my favorite tap house/public house that I have been to. I recommend it to anyone that has not been!

Great beer and awesome servers. Atmosphere could use some work and the food was most likely pre bought frozen and prepared by a microwave. I will return for the beer but would love if rogue worked on the food and ambiance.

A perfectly fine brew-pub, but not my favourite in Portland. Food was nothing special. The selection was very large, considering it all comes from one brewery. The atmosphere and staff were nice.

Rogue has a lot of haters. I say thereís a lot of jealousy. You know what! At least Rogue didnít sell out to InBev or anything like that. They, instead, decided to create their own entire supply chain. From farm to your glass. Itís a cool space. The bartenders are a bit cheeky, but get over it. They have a strict no cell phone use at the bar policy. It is a nice policy....but there are signs EVERYWHERE that get a little obtrusive. Itís a good place to visit, but donít plan on spending all day there.

Visited Rogue in August 2012. Kind of a run down building, and the service was pretty bad/rude. Good tap list but the beers were ho-hum. Dessert wasnít anything to write home about. Just ok.
