If you’re in Cannon Beach, this is a must visit spot. Warm and cozy, really old school Pacific Northwest brewpub feel. Good happy hour ($4 pints and a few food items for cheap). Beer is middling to average, but with great character. It consistently surprised me. (the nitro, roasty-dark barleywine was very cool). Maybe it is just nostalgia, but I really enjoyed it here. I can imagine my father hanging here decades ago at the start of the PNW brewing scene. Friendly enough staff, ok cheap food menu, $1 tasters. I’ll be back to hang out whenever I’m in town.
Nice little brewpub in this quaint town a couple blocks from the ocean (though with no views of it). 9 house beers on tap at our visit, ranging from below average to average more or less. Reasonable prices and competent service. Can’t really recommend this place, but if you find yourself in Cannon Beach, may as well stop here.
Fairly nice interior. Warm and rustic. Good service, they brought out the food quick. The food was typical pub grub, fairly expensive. The beer is hit and miss. They did have a BA Stout that was great. Certainly worth the trip. The best part was they had 10 beers on tap. I always appreciate that.
Finally made it tot his place. Nice beers good pub food and most of all your in Cannon Beach. The beers are average at best and some well they needed some work. But it is nice to have a fresh brew on the beach. Parking can be hard too many people in town at times. Watch for the crowds this can be a buys busy place.
Heading to spend some time on the beach? While in town, this is a nice little stop for the beer lover. Simple, family-style setup, with a decent little bar if you simply want to grab a pint. Service was laid back, but spot on. Food was pretty good pub fare, and decently priced. Really odd music rotation, jumping from salsa to classic rock, while throwing in some 80’s synth pop and Sinatra (songs often getting cut off mid-way). It made for an interesting visit. Ha! I had their porter and their stout, and it went pretty well with their oyster burger. There are, undoubtedly, ’better’ restaurants in town; but if I ever find myself in the area again, I’ll definitely stop by to sample some more of their brews.
Neat little brewery in on one of the most beautiful coastlines that i have ever seen. Service was very good, the guys there were really knowledgable. Food was a bit above average, though not by much. Beer was better than i expected, though i was kindof upset they were out of the beer that took a medal in the GABF.

I would never go there a second time. I was really surprised they didn’t have an IPA in their own brew list, they had a guest tap IPA which I had. So I didn’t sample any of the Bills’ brews, and I thought it was dumb they would charge for a sample being a brewpub and all. Waitress was horrible. We all ordered soups to have before our sandwiches for lunch. They didn’t come out until our sandwiches. How hard is it to pour chili in a cup and bring it right out. Waitress was snotty. The menu said to refer to beer list on table, there was none so I asked what their selection was and with an attitude she pointed up n the wall for their list. Whatever. There were other rude comments along the time. Here tip was 10% so whatever. Anyway, go there for beer, but don’t expect the best service. Maybe that’s their style, but it wont get them far when you’re working in customer service for tips.
Beer selection was limited but some were decent bevvies. Service was ABYSMAL!! On a slow day the wait staff were too busy chatting with each other to do that service thing. Went back next day to see if it was just one lazy crew....nope, service still sucked.
