If youíve ever been to a McMenaminís establishment, you know what youíre going to get with the beers, though Iíll admit Iíve had a lifelong appreciation of Terminator Stout, which was one of my first beers. The service here is excellent, and there is the absolute glory of the pitch and putt course on the property. Even in the hail and rain, this is a ton of fun. Also gotta love the two booze shacks on the course. Great place to visit.
The grounds are amazing. I would never really come here just to drink beer, there is a distillery and winery on site too. But between the spa, hotel, and movie theater, what a wonderful place for a date.
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.
McMenaminís Edgefield is an experience. We stayed overnight in the hotel and just spent an evening walked around to all of the bars and exploring grounds. It reminds me of Disneyland for adults but somehow you can bring your kids too. With a handful of different bars on premises there seems to be something for everybodyís taste when it comes to ambiance. Each bar has a different selection of their beer, most of which are session beers, but these are still good beers. Very reflexing setting near the Columbia river complete with its own distillery and winery. I highly recommend this place for a weekend getaway and after having sampled 50 beers over the last couple of days, it was nice to sit back and just sip one of their stouts.
You can read other reviews for a complete review of the whole Edgefield compound, this is mostly for the Powerhouse Pub, which seemed to be the biggest pub there. The atmosphere is nice because it is different, has the old brick farmhouse look, which I guess fits in with the theme of the place. The whole place has a theme-park type of feel to it, a bit surreal and a bit hokey. Lots of families, kids but also some older frat-type kids there on this day (friday aftnoon) as well. Yay. Still the best part about the place though. The food is good, but nothing spectacular and since the prices arenít too high its a pretty decent value. The waitress wasnít particularly knowledgeable, but was attentive and personable. Beers were average, but they have lots of styles to choose from, including multiple seasonals and a rotating nitro tap. Something I do want to review is the Terminator Stout Mustard they have on the tables- this stuff is lame tastes more like liquid smoke than the Terminator Stout.
My favorate place to enjoy a beer. Park like setting with lots of locations to enjoy an adult beverage. The hobbit style hut is my favorate. Try is on a cold winter night. Ordinary selection of food, which is good. Say in the hotel. Enjoy live music, concerts, Enjoy a beer with a move. Awesome!
Place is amazing. Fortunately the barmen in the Red Shed and the Ice House are usually the friendliest staff members at the Edge. Everyone else working there is too cool to be bothered actually working. Having a cigar and a dram on a cold winter night is nice, but the beer is still McBeer.
The best McMenamins iíve been to, just a beautiful place down to every detail. They have a great St. Pattys day celebration, outstanding scenery, great buildings, good service, and a good selection of McBeers on tap.
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.
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.
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.
