The Rogue Brewery, Bar & Restaurant, Newport.
The brewery is located on the south end of the bridge, close to the harbor. This was my 4th visit. We have found this place to be a fun friendly, touristy spot to stop for a casual beer while in the Newport Marina. A tour was just about to begin when we entered the place. Our walking tour lead us through the actively working brewery to the gift shop and to the stairs leading to the bar and restaurant. We climbed up the stairs to the second floor for our samples and a spectacular view of the bay. We could see the Yacquina Bridge, fishing boats and the Dana Fecilia sailing vessel from the big picture windows. The décor was amusing and entertaining. See pictures.
Although I prefer red wine I enjoyed my microbrew samples. Didn’t care too much for the “Chocolate Stout”. My glass of IPA was particularly delicious. However I would prefer my beer served in an ice, cold glass. Service was a little haphazard, but very friendly. We had to wait a long time for our server. I finally walked up to the bar and asked for a beer. They had a large selection of interesting and unusual beers on tap, so many to choose from. It was enjoyable afternoon trying the different beers.
We didn’t order anything to eat, wasn’t in the mood for bar food. The food prices looked a tad high.
Noisy, busy and crowed but friendly place. I would go back again with friends that are new to the area. Join the Rogue Nation (no charge) and get a discount on your beer and free birthday specials. With the discount our four beers were $18.00 plus tip.
