Quite a unique and unusual brewpub. The signage is a bit dubious as to where to go to actually get in there - you have to walk through several doors, the actual brewery, and then up a flight of stairs to get to the pub / restaurant. Excellent extensive selection of Rogue beers, including some of their rarer and one-off ones. Prices are very reasonable and the service was very good. Definitely worth a stop when passing through Newport, even if you’re not a big fan of Rogue.
Very bizarre brewpub right in the actual Newport harbor under the massive bridge. Strange parking lot is intermixed with their actual operational brewery so get ready to dance with some semi-trucks. A few oddly pointing signs sent us driving around the area and into the Rogue Distillery house. Surely the kitchen and brewpub are not actually inside the brewery warehouse?? Well, surprise, they are. You walk through the giant red cylinder and follow some makeshift signs to a hidden kitchen and restaurant that has been jerry-rigged into the side of the brewery. Staff was nice, tap list was all Rogue beers with many things you can easily find in bottles. Only a few beers on tap were brewpub only types if any. Food was subpar- very disappointing given how good the menu looked. Kobe beef burger was overcooked and unseasoned. I hope it wasn’t real Kobe beef or I would cry in my sleep. Generic fries and pickles served with everything. Pretty lackluster overall. Food quality was similar to beer quality with a lot of letdowns. One or two of the golden IPAs were actually pretty solid. Overall, I’d scroll past from now on.
Brewers On the Bay has been one of my all-time favorite brewery establishments to attend for quite some time. You walk through a zig-zag of fermenters on your way to the gift shop where you can purchase beer & swag to go. Upstairs is the bar/restuarant, and in my opinion, the best food of any Rogue establishment. Upstairs, you overlook the harbor and marina where people are seen crabbing. It’s all-around a GREAT place! I really love it!!
This bar is in the main brewery and it is located down a winding path thru that brewery which makes getting there half the fun. The food and atmosphere are great. What really sets this apart besides being right in the brewery is that the selection of Rogue beers is so large...many of which are limited releases or seasonals that at times you can only get at this location. Definitely woth a special trip.

Nice location located in Newport looking over the Bay. Amazing selection of Rogue beers on tap including many that are not available for distribution. Host/Hostess were a little elitest but once you were seated the place felt very homey. Our server was very knowledgable about the beers and friendly all the way around. We had a few sandwiches which were shared and 2.5 samples each which allowed us to try 10 beers. My favorite by far was the dry hopped mogul madness. Bombers in the gift shop were priced higher than I can get them here on the east coast, but hey they are trying to get some tourist dollars from people visiting the coast. Very nice brewery with John giving tours when we were there.
Visited here in August ’12. A must stop if visiting the Oregon coast. Located on top of the brewery with an excellent view out the window at a harbor full of fishing and sailing boats. Have at least 30 different selections on tap with a few guest taps as well - all are available as samplers. They provide you with a free tasting of the beer of the day. Menu has a lot of local seafood - I had a salmon sandwich which was pretty good. Service was just a tad slow, but friendly nonetheless. Gift shop below the brewpub with plenty of Rogue merchandise and plenty of bombers. The walk through the tanks on the way to the brewpub with the aroma of wort making you thirsty for some some beer.
