Surprisingly small, no-frills spot located in a small industrial park in rural coastal Oregon. I visited on a Thursday in mid-March and was a bit surprised to find a queue of people waiting for it to open. Beers available to takeaway numbered about 5, with another half dozen or so available on tap. Thereís also a pretty expansive bottle list that offers some of their more hyped releases at surprisingly decent prices. In general, I think De Garde offers some of the best value wild ales produced in the states. Say what you want about their beer, but itís very reasonably priced. Beer quality during my visit was very high and the staff were exceedingly friendly. Overall, I was quite impressed by the experience and will happily make the drive out from Portland on future visits. Donít come expecting to find a destination brewery experience. Calibrate your expectations accordingly.

Small place in the middle of nowhere. Very helpful staff and the beers are world class of course, both their own and guest taps. Very fair prices as well. A must visit when in the area.

I have hit this place many times for releases or just to get bottles to go. The price point is right on the money, I am not going to say they are cheap because they are what the normal price for this beer should be. The fact that some places charge $30 plus for beer that is close to the same is a total rip off. Moving on always nice staff and good selection

Middle of no where but rent a place by the cost and enjoy this place. Funny thatís a commercial space, not much of a tasting room. No kids or dogs allowed so after a long trek here its a pain in the ass. Strong draft list, bottles to go, and rarer bottles to drink here. The servers were nice but not overly or joyful. Cool experience but it lacks a little charm.

Visited: May 6, 2015 Vibe: not a lot of people at the brewery, the set-up of the tasting room is like a snobbish winery Quality: Very good beers, at least the 2 I tasted Service: brewer was attentive Selection: 6 beers on tap mostly sour with 3 guest Overall: a brewery for snobbish singles, not really for beer geeks with kids

Out of the way place near the Air Museum in Tillamook. The smell of manure from surrounding farm fields mingles with the aroma of fermenting fruit and grain to give an idea of what this place is like. Rotating selection of draft, bottles to go and on-site only bottles. Four guest taps of great local and one Belgian lambic. Lots of friendly service. I would definitely come here again.

You come here because the beer is good, and for virtually no other reason. No video games, no pool, no darts, no ballgame on the tube. If youíre not very interested in highly specialized beersóor at least very curious to learn moreóthis isnít quite what youíre looking for. But if you do happen to have a liking for sour and funky ales, there are only a couple places within 500 miles that are definitely better, and, hey, you might be more in the mood for De Garde right now. In short: the more of a beer geek you are, the likelier it is that this is one of the best places for you to drink in this state. Maybe make that several states.

The particulars: They accept credit cards They allow outside food, including local deliveries The prices are very reasonable; better than most specialty beer bars in cities 6 house taps 4 guest taps Usually 8-10 bottles available to go Usually ~20 bottles available to crack on site only Usually a cider available for the gluten-free among us

So, more in depth: Itís a warehouse park near the WWII blimp hangars. Itís picturesque because thereís green everywhere, but youíre sitting in a slightly-gussied-up warehouse in the middle of nowhere. Donít come here hoping to be spotted by paparazzi. Thereís a little parking out back, and a few tables out front. Inside, there are a couple rooms with barrels for tables, and padded stools. They put in some nice vintage-looking light fixtures and clocks, so it feels more like a tasting room than it does a workspace, but itís fairly minimal. Thereís a bar to the left with friendly kids hopping to it when you order.

These guys searched throughout the state of Oregonóliterallyóto find the best place to make their beers. They spontaneously ferment everything, rather than pitching cultivated yeast in each batch. This can occasionally create unexpected results, and they canít always confirm exactly what fermented each beer. They do this in a koelschip, which allows waiting wort to capture whatever wild yeast floats by, and their chemical tests confirmed Tillamook has the most interesting cultures in Oregon. So, they started their brewery here.

Visited Thursday, July 17. Intimate little shop right across from the Tillamook air museum, inside a small little industrialícommercial complex. Cozy ambiance with a wooden fence look on the walls, laminated bottle art mosaics, and a fair number of tables and chairs in its three rooms. Granted, Iím not a huge fan of barrel tables; theyíre next to impossible to write on - fortunately, i was able to grab one of the stools. It was very busy on this night; lines out the door all night for the bottle release. (It was not my reason for visiting, and though, I certainly donít begrudge such busyness, I was also hoping to avoid it. Not exactly their fault for being popular, right?) Service was both efficient and personable, prices were excellent - even for the bottles which one could drink at the location, and altogether Iím pretty sure that whenever Iím in the area, Iíll stop by again.

An interesting place. Iíd imagine that a lot of visitors are driving out from Portland and the drive is really quite beautiful from the city. Itís about how long it takes me to get from Orange County to San Diego, so not that bad, either...stop complaining, Oregon people.

The tasting room is quite small. A bar that really consists of just a kegerator on wheels (and thereís a second one). They have a handful of beers on tap and a bottle list that seems to rotate regularly depending on what has just run out. While we were there (only really an hour and change), three different bottled beers sold out...and we got there right when they opened.

Anyway, aside from the main portion of the tasting room, there is a second area you can hang out in. You can poke your head into one of their barrel storage areas, too. Tables are also present outside to sit and drink, which is quite nice on a summer day.

Prices are really quite good and fair on everything, which is pretty much a staple in Oregon, it seems. The beers are generally good and of course, theyíre all sour-ish.

It can be hard to pull yourself out of the city, Iím sure, but I thought it was well worth it to come out here and I was initially skeptical about doing so. Also, if you have some time, itís a short drive to the Tillamook Cheese/Ice Cream factory and you can also go check out the awesome Oregon coast. If youíre really adventurous, go north to Astoria and check out the Goonies house.
