Nice to have another option besides Laurelwood. Stopped by for a quick beer, most beers available were already familiar to me. The usual Rogue suspects. Pretty crowded around lunch time, staff was noticeable strained to keep up. Not a bad stop if you have some time to kill at PDX, I enjoyed Laurelwood a bit better.
Located near the Delta gates at PDX, it is a decent size place. Food is typical airport crap and the beer is.... well.... you know. Overall, okay for an airport. PDX is a solid one at that. Would I return... unless they move to the American Airlines section or vice versa.... doubtful.
An airport bar for one of the west coastís original innovators. Unfortunately their beer and their aesthetic is getting a bit old. Service was friendly, but as in most airports its ontracted out, probably not through the brewery. Food was fried bar food. Decent selection, nothing mind blowing except maybe the PDX carpet beer. If you have a layover, stop, and sign up for Rogue Nation to get a discount.
Visited on Wednesday morning, 12/11/14 around 8am.
This bar is located on the D Gates, by D4/D6 but not a lengthy walk from other areas, 5 minutes to C13 where my flight was departing from.
10 Rogue beers on tap plus 2 macros.
The place was pretty deserted and the service was decent.
Typical airport bar, open plan to the main aisle of the D gates.
Taster available $5.99 for 4 x 4oz, decent vfm for an airport.
They also sell bottles to go, a good dozen or so inlcuding the brightly coloured bottles of dubiousity!
I didnít eat - just time for ticks but the food menu mixed Rogue beers in with the dishes.
Solid airport bar, tasters, choice, good vfm.
I think I liked Laurelwood just a bit better as far as the airport brewery restaurants in PDX; however, I think I liked Rogueís PDX restaurant better than their distillery in the Pearl District. The staff was much less snobbish about their beer, thatís for sure. I didnít get to sample their food on this go, but the memory of the mediocre food in the Pearl District still haunted me.
Probably the other of the exciting beer places in the airport (other than Laurelwood, that is).
Better restaurant space/layout than Laurelwood as there is room for a proper bar and some actual room in the restaurant area. They had a pretty good number of taps on, maybe 10, though a bunch of them were the regular offerings. They also have some bottles of those beers available.
Service was a little better than at Laurelwood, though. Pricing is good here as well. Worth a stop if youíre flying out of these gates.
