Lots of crazy locals, and funny folks hang out here. Awesome selection of drafts. They aren’t so pretentious to where they can’t carry a Budweiser draft. Had some guest taps as well. Bartender was a bit goofy, but really helpful, prompt, and aware of the drinks he was serving. Also, I got a Rogue condom here; I can’t wait to use it! Anyways, nice selection of Rogue Ales that I haven’t had before. Lots of Rogue beers that most of us have tried are on draft, so don’t expect a mind blowing experience. Prices were fair. Slightly North of Chinatown. Definitely stop in and sit at the bar. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed by this experience. Heard the food sucks, so I didn’t get anything, which is why this is getting a big N/A.

As a Texan, I was overwhelmed by the quality of draft beers at the Rogue Public House. They simply do not make places like this in Texas. Not only did you get most of Rogue’s offerings on tap, all of which are top tier, they also had a venerable all-star list of other West coast big hitters. This to date, is the best collection of draft beers I have seen in one location by a wide margin. I would definitely put this on your must-see list if you are in the area and in the mood for some big West Coast ales.

Rogue Alehouse has good location in the city, and an impressive list of Rogue beers when you walk in. The food, though, is underwhelming and overpriced at best. I’ve never seen more than a few people in there. Overall, pretty weak.

Cool that you can either have one of almost any Rogue flavor - or the best of everyone else. It was a late stop so settled on Rogue Nachos (really waffle fries) and some Dogfish Head Chicory Stout to wake me back up. Around the corner from the Church Key - so between those two places you will get great selection.

I walk past this place so often that I’m ashamed that I haven’t gone in here until now. The beer selection is huge, and they have some great stuff. Not just Rogue ales, but all sorts of seemingly random stuff. Service was excellent and very friendly. I will definitely be back for more!

We came here for a late lunch and a good beer and were very pleased with both. Few patrons were there which allowed the bartender, Billy to introduce us to some of the 20 or more beers on tap. He was friendly and knowledgeable. They have a very interesting changing selection of beer which should please any palate. I had Rogue’s Old Crustacean Barleywine which is excellent and on a second visit it was gone but was delighted with Drake’s Denogginizer. A great spot for a quality beer or two and good interesting food.

Visited July 30 and August 1 for happy hours. Place has a strong beer selection but unfortunately some of the most interesting beers brewed by Rogue weren’t on the draft board on both dates. The food is very strong, particularly the appetizers which I highly recommend. My party on both nights actually thought the guest taps were better than Rogue’s which isn’t good for them but speaks volumes about their love of great beer. Recommended but Monk’s Kettle is much better if you are in San Francisco.

Really nice old pub next to a park, a few blocks walk from the wharf. Many good Rogues on tap, hard to choose even with a sampler available. A couple of cool guest tap were also available. Had the hummus plate, found it to be very good. Bartender was busy, but service was still good and even took the time to point me in the direction of a good place to eat in Chinatown. Also had something called the Garage Sale going on, selling all sorts of hats, shirts, glasses and beer for cheap prices (got 2 Rogue long sleeve shirts for $10 each).

This place is pretty much a classic. If Rogue beers do not impress me as much as they once did, it’s still a real pleasure to hesitate between 20 or so of them and 2 casks to boot. The service was friendly and helpful, the location is prime by Washington Square and the patrons seem to be mainly locals. I was a bit surprised that pints would come up to 6$ a pop, but I guess this goes with the location. Not a particularly pretty place, but it has the merit of feeling like a brewpub.

Good location in North beach. Decent basic pub group, good selection of beers on tap including guest brews. I never had bad service but usually I go in the early evening/late afternoon and hang out at the bar.
