If you enjoy sampling radically different flavours of beer, this pub and restaurant in Rogue's Newport brewery makes for a satisfying pilgrimage. The pub is all rough wood with a long bar and a forest of taps. The restaurant is very plain with metal table tops, wooden chairs, a simple open kitchen, and fast professional service. Both have a view of the boat harbour and the bay beyond. The fun part is that to get to the entrance, you have to walk right through the brewery. Not so fun is that you have to walk back again to use the washroom.
The food was decent. We had the interesting cheese+beer soup and some fish tacos. Nothing special but just right for the price. The best menu feature is the 4-beer taster set for $6. Pick any four beers on the menu -- about 40! On our visit the place was busy with both locals, tourists, and even big family groups.
The gift shop at the downstairs entrance is fun but way overpriced.
