BarFly's Review of Rogue Ales Public House
Another utilitarian brew-pub housing acoustic acts for antiseptic drones, not so fond of drinking or music. You'll as likely find a bar's pleasures here, as make a call from their purposeless red phone box signifier. However, Rogue's easily Portland's least irritating micro (and, apparently, most awarded; when are the Brewies?), and, as Pearl boutiques go, how many offer spiced rum?
Sample tastes, purchase merchandise, inquire specifics from the knowledgeable staff, and presume the afterwork businessmen and deadened couples live mannequins, cast for verisimilitude.

Getting to Rogue Ales Public House

i went to the rogue public house and got a beer its good but its not worth the 5.25 a pint i got a burger and some fries and it looked like the portions were for a child and at the great price of like $9.00... rip off. Then after i had a drink of my beer my friends called me and the bartender was a complete bitch about me being on my cell phone. Over priced food and beer. The service suck too i'd rather drink rogue somewhere else
My love of Rogue's beers is equal to my hatred of their pubs. To be specific: luke-warm gray food, bad service, and $5.25 pints. Rogue seems to be "independent" of restaurant management training.
As part of my month of barhopping Portland, I am making an effort to stop at every brewery/distillery in the city. This one was the first stop; and a great stop it was!
Tour: the 2pm tour started casually late, which was perfect because i got there at 2:01 and still had time to buy a beer! Mel, the distiller - a rum artist of sorts - gave the tour. She was very informative and was amazingly patient with a drunk foreigner. The rum was amazing, so I bought a bottle of the hazelnut blend and got an autograph from Mel on it!
Bar: So after the tour and a nice taste of rum on our lips, we proceeded to the bar for some beer sampling. There was a very extensive selection of all Rogue brews from all over in Oregon. For about 5 dollars we got to choose 4 beers to sample in a cool little sample/hazing paddle that's shaped like a bottle. Mikey G was our bartender at the time, I'm sure you've met him if you've been here in the last 10+ years. Great guy, really got to talking with us and helped us with the beer selecting, even told us about a special brew they only make once every 3 years and don't bottle it, pretty cool shit there. Best of luck to your brother Mikey!
Happy Hour: We easily drank into the early happy hour. . . hours, and had some pretty good stuff. Stuffed meat balls, caeser salad, corn on the cob, hummus, and of course a few more pints. Food was fast and really hit the spot.
Fact: I get to continue drinking Rogue at a favorite bar of mine in Hawaii, and they ship to a surprising amount of other states. The spirits can only be purchased locally right now, so I suggest you try it.
Green?: Thought this was pretty neat, all the left over alcohols from the distilling process (about 75% of it if i remember?) is used in one of the employees vehicles that drives back and forth from here to the Newport Rogue house. And soon the distribution trucks will run off the same fuel!
Event: There is a surf competition in Newport coming up, sponsored by Rogue, it sounds fun. We need to rent a bus and take a night trip down there, who's with me?
All in all it was a great experience, I would suggest it to anyone who likes alcohol. Today I'll be going to Laurewood in Portland. I don't know how active this site actually is, but if anyone sees me there, stop by and say hi!
i had to go inside to get attention of the waitress , who told me to go back outside if i wanted to sit outside, she would be right with me... so i went back out and waited like a good boy. well, 8 minutes later she came by to bring me a huge beer menu, (good reading to pass the time) and a food menu (everything overpriced ). i knew what i wanted but she sorta tossed the menus at me and went back inside. i made a phonecall and checked the time... 5 minutes later she was serving someone else and i had to get her attention to order a pint. 12 minutes later the pint arrived, and it was great. but after i was done, no waitress in sight. im glad i didnt order another one, i had to go inside to cash out and found that the beer was 5.25! what is this a fucking airport?! i can get growlers of rogue beers at the thurman mart for 4 and change! i think ill stick to that, and wont be back to this lame pub, thanks.
This place is absolute shit. The ONLY reason to go is if you have a growler you want filled. The beer is great, but they charge a dollar more for a pint here than at real bars in town (how's that work?). The bartender is an unmitigated prick, and the waitress came to our table approximately once every 45 minutes.
This was a one-or-two-times-a-year place for me (as I said, the beer is very good), but is now a never-again place.
Hands down the best pub in the area, and probably the whole of downtown Portland. A non-yuppie refuge amongst the Pearl District's cocktail bars. The food's good, the beer's fantastic, and they have a red telephone box in the middle of the room for no apparent reason. What more can you ask for?
