LONG LIVE THE ROGUE NATION!
This place is right on the Yaquina Bay. Under the bridge that leads to the Great Pacific. Pick the right seat and overlook the bottling process. Little store to buy beer in the bottle just before you walk up to the resturant. Amazing hospitality. Absolutly genuine people. The Public House in Newport on the other side of the bay as well. Charlie, Chris, Jim were all great. Thanks again, and see you all soon!!!! Once again John C. Maier is an Artisan Brewmaster of the World. Thank you John!!
Huge selection of Rogue beers with a handful of them that I can’t get back home. Walking in, I was greeted with that awesome brewery hop and grain smell I really haven’t experienced in awhile. The service was above and beyond great. Walking into the pub part after buying a shirt and a bottle of Voodoo Bacon Maple in the gift shop I was immediately presented with a complimentary sample of Dad’s Little Helper. I ordered a sampler tray and received two more free samples before I left.
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.
Smells awful, beer way too expensive but you have to visit! Amazing choice for sampler platter - perfect selection of bottled beer to take home and an interesting tour of the facility. Gotta go, justbring lots of $

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.
This place is great, the pub is up in a loft overlooking the brewery. If you go on a weekend they usually have the bottling line running, fun to watch while eating. Always a great place to go grab a pint, and keep your eyes open in their store for some unusual rogue brews in bottles.
Man, what else can I say about this place? Awesome brewery, awesome location, awesome gift shop, tons of beers on tap. TONS of rogue character. great view. Didn’t try the food, knowledgable bartender, smoking in the bar though.

Imagine that things have only improved over time, but as one of the owners of the brewery showed me around and let me have my way not only there but around town I have absolutely nothing but praise.
