Incredibly unique place with an on-site hotel, brewery and distillery. Kind of swanky for a brewpub environment, but we sat in they tiny bar area and enjoyed a couple of McMenaminís awesome beers. Neat location.
Had our wedding reception here and had a great time. The beer was awesome and the service was also just as good. The whole place used to be the Oregon Farm which was for the older retired people who could not afford anything else to live they would live there. We partied all night in the upstairs of the Electric house and it was a great time. The golf course when you have time is fun and the little corner bars are also very fun. A great time by all and kids can come in certain areas and they will love the grounds. The beer is freshly brewed right there so it can not get any better. Worth the trip to Troutdale.
The Edgefield location of McMenamins is fantastic - not so much for the beer, which is about the same as all the other spots including a brewpub, maybe a few of the beers can only be had here. But the place is fantastic for the 9 small bars scattered around the grounds, which include a 9 hole golfcourse and a vineyard, so the property also include a winery, a destillery, and a hotel, seemed like a great place to kick back. The food was decent pubgrub. I had 5 new beers in the brewpub.
What a place. Itís huge. A hotel, a golf course, a winery, a glass blowing shop, a spa, a distillery and brewery. And a bunch of bars and restaurants. The food is good and mostly simple. Loads of beer on tap. Quite a variety too for a McMenamins. Solid beers. The grounds are very beautiful and well kept. Cool art in the hotel. But most of all I love the outdoor spaces and small little bars you can drink in. Tiny little hovels with a few taps and your own private bar. Very few things are underrated these days with the internet and social media.But McMenamins is and a few of their locations are just so cool they are hard to believe. Itís not gonna be a crazy beer place, but it is cool and has good beer.
Found it bizarre in the most exhilarating way that I went here ten years ago and then just stumbled upon it again while driving w/ my gf. She was even more aggressive than I was in getting samples of EVERYTHING there, which they had no problem serving her. Made selecting the pints a hell of a lot easier. They even let her sample the brandy they made. Great place w/ excellent setting.
Very cool place to visit. Lots of things to see. Theatre, Winery, Distillery, Cidery, Coffee....ery. Anyways, itís a bit of a drive from central Portland but worth the drive (go to Liberator too!!). Nice selection of McMenís beers and better food than most McMenís places. Rachael Ray did some good coverage of this place on $40 a day on the Portland episode.
The beer here was average, the food here was average but the place is fucking amazing. They brought this place for a dollar it was a poverity work camp not an insane asylum ( MJames) and turned it into a stunning family orienated party place with a winery, brewery,hotel,golf course ( par 3) and a distilerary and the list goes on. DEAD HEADS will feel at home.
Poperinge called it a theme park for booze. Had a pint at the Ice House, home to the memory of the Grateful Dead. Had lunch and a couple of pints at the Black Rabbit bar. Very helpful friendly staff. Different beers on tap at different locations in the park. 3 par golf course. Lots to do. Lots of families. Rooms.
Went to the Pub Course. Four beer taps with their own brews: Terminator, Hammerhead, Ruby and Pirate Latitude. McMenamins always has interesting and unique atmosphere. Had the Terminator and Hammerhead; my brother had the Latitude, which he enjoyed. Always worth visiting any of their establishments.
