That was a one crazy drive down rt 3 from Washington! This place was a bit hard to find due to lack of cell service. Really nice outside space and Iíd stay here all day if I lived in the area. Lots of nice beers and basic food. If for some strange reason you are within range of his place, do it!

Located a block on the right off Rt. 82 on the southern edge of town (as you drive to Joseph) w/ a helpful sign pointing the way. Converted house with production brewery/warehouse extension. Kind of an old-school feeling place with the small bar, vintage fridge/cooler and general vibe. Nice view of the Wallowa Mtns. to the right. Friendly staff, local feel with some tables outside on the deck and lawn for soaking up the summer sun. It was a quick stop for me while heading to the mountains, so no food but there was 8 taps I think w/ most of that special and/or brewery only stuff. Favorite was their dank and roasty Cascadian Dark Ale - yumm!!! Two beers + a full growler (inc. glass) for $20 = word

Finally I have been to Terminal Gravity . This brewery has been on my list for some years now. It took a lot of white knuckle driving but I made it to the old sausage factory turned modern day brewery. Enterprise Oregon an old mill town has gone granola. I am sure the locals along with the tourist seeking liquid refreshment they are here quite often. Terminal Gravity the underground brewery with limited distribution has become very much highly sought after in the big cities. I know that Portland and Seattle can not get enough and the limited bottling make the brews very special for all. I for one always want to try something new from TG.
I found the place rustic with the old style refrigerator behind the bar adding to the dťcor. You can buy hand blown pint glasses. I heard the local artisan make these and then you can either take them with you or have them as your special glass every time you visit the brewery. Do you get more brew - they say they vary and some are bigger but most are the same as a true pint. Great food available and kids are welcome to join you. They have both a small area near the main bar downstairs or you can go upstairs to lounge and enjoy yourself. Be sure to order at the main bar when you arrive. I got there it was slow but as I went to leave it was packed. The service was top notch and they really went out of there way to make you feel welcome. I can not wait to come back in the summer and see the town and the surrounding area. Make it a day of hiking and then a night drinking at Terminal Gravity.

A long, long drive from anything on the way to nowhere. Prestine valley with extensive farmland and beautiful mountains. TG is situated on a dirt road right off the main drag. In the front lawn thereís a stand of aspens with picnic tables, spring daffodils and a spectacular view of the Blue Mountains. Inside is a small cozy pub, very limited seating but very friendly. All locals since this place is so far away from anything. The staff had some big problems with our order. We got a sampler and sat outside right around sunset; very nice. Didnít try any of the food but the menu looked good. If you can find the time to get away from the Interstate world, come here. The beers are great too!

This place is incredible. Itís not just the beer either. Located in an old house, with the brewery out back. You can sit outside and look at the Wollowa Mountains and enjoy TG IPA. The people are friendly, lots of locals. Great layover on a camping trip into Hellís Canyon. Not much ambiance to the place, but the view and the beer make up for it. Also be sure to check out the hand blown pint glasses, they are amazing!
