Portland is known for great micro breweries, and Rogue is a great example. The IPA was especially good, but everything we tried was good.

Loved the beer and glad they had other breweries on tap too. The food was decent but nothing special. Horacio was a very cool server!

No question, this is an intriguing brewery that challenges your taste buds and sometimes your manhood. I live on the east coast and never in my wildest dreams did I think they made so many styles, most of which are quite good, and some of which are neanderthal gimmicks like Beerd Beer which is sort-of a gag (I hope) and is literally made from a yeast strain found on the brewmaster's facial hair, or so I was enthusiastically told by the waiter who immediately supplied us with a taste. It was everything you'd imagine, like sucking sweaty moisture off a lumberjack's neckbeard with a little hops to balance the rancid funk. Try not to dwell on the provenance of the yeast strain and how it got there, likely from some colorful corner of the vast, funky bacterial biome.

The food here is beside the point. Yes some things are satisfying, like the onion rings, ok burgers, and others are off-note like Kurobuta pork tacos which are just disks of overcooked sausage not really "medallions of pork" which conjures up something completely and superbly different when reading the menu.

We were lucky with our server who was knowledgeable and reasonably attentive and we also sat outside on the picnic tables which afforded a breezy tasting atmosphere that oddly suited the Rogue Ales - taste 'em en plein air and see for yourself. This vantage point saved us from the not-so-clean interior and other surly staff that I witnessed trying the patience of some patrons.

But the beer is the reason to explore this place. Points off for mediocre food, brusqueness, and cleanliness.

Stumped in late one night after dinner. Tried several beers and all were good. I would recommend and go out of my way to come back. Try as many as you can!!!

Having been to many other Rogues, we had to stop in for a sampler. Mike was incredibly helpful! We didnt eat here, but definitely recommend stopping in for a beer or 2!
