I really like the atmosphere in the bar and the bartenders and staff have always been incredibly friendly and attentive. There are tons of bottles available for purchase, as well as some of their spirits.
I enjoy the Shakespeare and Chocolate Stouts, as well as the Morimoto Soba Ale quite a bit. Rogue has a huge selection of taps.
I'm always glad to have another brewery in Portland and if you like what Rogue has to offer then this is a great place to check out. The menu is great and the food is delicious.

The first of 3 Rogue locations we visited during our Portland/Oregon Coast trip. The Public House is located on NW Flanders between 13th and 14th. Street parking is available all around.
The interior opens to a gift shop and bottle display which actually ends up bleeding into the entire bar area. There is table seating on the left side, with the bar on the right. Lots of Rogue breweriana is displayed including a surfboard. The available beers are listed on a chalkboard, and there are 4-beer samplers available of any beers using a photocopied order form. The seating in the bar is long community benches.
The beers at Rogue are consistently good. Many Rogue standards are available including beers from Elliot Bay, Eugene City and Issaquah. All the beers were good, with the John John and Chatoe Dirtoir being standouts.
Our bartender who was covering the bar area was very knowledgeable about the beers and was on top of things the whole time.
We did not try any food on this visit.
Overall the Rogue Public House is a must visit on any visit to Portland.

Slightly hard to find but thanks to Google Maps we got there in the end! The bar was fairly quiet on a Monday night so we went straight to the bar and got served straight away. I was Impressed by the range of beers, full Rogue Selection plus guests. Bar man chatted to us and finding we were British tourists he made a few recommendations and i had a pint of Tracktown 200 Meter IPA and wasn't disappointed. Good bar, friendly staff and a good beer selection. We didn't eat so i can't comment on the food.

I've been to two Rogue Ale houses and have been happy with both places. This isn't a brewpub, so you won't find any 'brewpub exclusive' beers, which is a loss. But they had an impressive tap selection (~25 Rogue beers and 8 guest taps), far more than most pubs I've visited. The place is dark and comfortable and the walls are covered in Rogue stuff. The first night we went there, we just drank in the bar. There is a pile of board games so we spent several hours drinking and playing Connect 4. We went back a few days later for food. The food was good, inexpensive, but not memorable. This Rogue Public House is located just off one of the main roads through a trendy Portland neighborhood, very close to other bars and shops converted from old industrial buildings and warehouses. Outdoor seating is also available.

Stopped in here while in Portland. Kind of in a weird spot, would be pretty hard to find if you didn't know exactly where it was. Pretty decent tap list, all sorts of Rogue, but I was expecting some harder to finds or one offs. Basically just the regular stuff, but I was pretty happy to be able to get some Old Crusty on tap. Neat atmosphere, lots of trendy folk, a pretty young crowd although there were some families sitting inside. A pretty big place as well, nice wooden bar on one side, dining area on the other. We sat outside at a picnic table on the sidewalk and chatted with some folks who were visiting from Alberta. A neat place to visit for the history of Rogue but I'm not sure I would consider this a destination spot.

Day 1 & Stop 2 of the Portland Pub Crawl. Walked over here and grabbed a seat outside at a table right near the street corner. Indoors, there were lots of table and a nice bar area, but we preferred to sit and enjoy fresh air. Pretty cool looking place all around. Service was a bit on the weak side, as it took a long time for a waiter to take our order. Tons of Rogue beers on the menu, but since Rogue is so nation-wide, I was disappointed to realize that I've already had a majority of the list. I went with the Imperial Stout and my wife got the Imperial Porter. Both served in cool thick XS goblets. Prices were average. If you like Rogue, stop by. But if you are looking for beers you can't get in your home town, then maybe only stop by for a quick one just to check the place out like we did and then move on.

went here on a summer wednesday night about about 10pm.
Long story short, this will probably get a fairly poor review because of the service and atmosphere. Rogue ales are pretty good all around, but since I'm not rating the beers themselves the service comes into play.
Now on a wednesday you would think things would be pretty laid back, but my wife and friends and I got attitude from start to finish. Walked in, no service, finally flag down waitress, she tells us to sit outside or at the bar. We're like ok? well since there's 4 of us we might as well go outside that's ok. 10-15mins outside I finally go in to find help. Have to look to find another waitress. I ask her if we should just sit inside for better service? She seems annoyed and says well the kitchen's closed so it's only bar service right now. I'm like, "ok that's fine I just want beer.. I have money!" We finally get service, orders some sample trays outside, beer is pretty good rogueness as you would expect. It was about $6 for 4 4oz samples, not bad. But then she makes a big scene about how the bartender said 'no more samplers tonight'. I'm like, "why don't you just bring me the check now so I can pay now and you don't have to worry about us anymore. I tipped average, but it certainly wasn't earned.
I might have higher standards than some, but being a beer nerd I don't pick my locations randomly, and expect to get treated decently, not like I'm at a busy tourist dive where they act like they're doing a big favor to you by serving you, and will refuse service if they hear any backtalk.

We stopped here while browsing the Pearl District after visiting Powell's enormous bookstore, missed the distillery tour by five minutes but had no idea it was going on anyways, would have been a nice coincidence though, it is actually quite similar to the San Francisco location, main differences are that it is bigger, the distillery of course, tons of t-shirts and bottles to go at this one, and it has a few tables outside, there is about three dozen taps and they are all Rogue beers, pretty sad when I have had all about six of them, unfortunately missed the John John by a few minutes, our bartender was a guy that recently came there from Tracktown, he was a nice dude and talked our ears off for about an hour, we tried the Issaquah Frog Stout, special Japanse version of the Chocolate Stout, Charlie 1981, and Triple Jump Pale Ale while were there, atmosphere in here is traditional much like a pub, pretty clean inside, stuff seemed to be scattered all over though, would go back here but it would not be a priority while in Portland, place is also a bit pricey, four tasters is about seven bucks, most brewpubs and breweries charge much less in the city, even bars are cheaper in that regard, did not eat but food looked decent but probably nothing special, worth checking out

Stopped in during a trip to Portland--I've been a huge fan of Rogue brews since I initially discovered them on a trip to SanFran, but unfortunately can't find much beyond their flagships at home in Pittsburgh, Pa.
Comfortable atmosphere and cheery service, despite there not being enough servers to handle the crowd. It was nice that there were a few picnic tables outside.
A fantastic selection of Rogue drafts, and I enjoyed their $6 sampler that allowed you to try any 4 of the drafts at a time. They were sizable glasses--maybe 4-5 ounces of each pour?
I was excited to try their new line of spirits, so our server recoed the sampler that included the light rum, dark rum, hazelnut rum (bleck!), and gin. This sampler had barely two sips of each and cost a whopping $15!!! A total rip off.
Stick with the beers and you'll be very pleased!

Rogue is one of my favorite places to go in downtown. You walk in to either more family seating on the left or the bar on the right with TV's. On the bar side all the beers are written up on a chalk board with colorful chalk. You are surrounded by 22oz bombers on both sides. I like the kicked back warehouse feel.
It has a great selection of brews and food. The food has been good the 3 plus times I have been there. They have a solid Kobe beef burger and fish entree. The service has always been fast and friendly. It is downtown so value for what you get is reasonable.
