Rogue Brewpub

Finally got a chance to check out the new Rogue Brewery over the weekend.

Didn't eat anything as I had just had dim sum followed by cookies from Victorias. But the menu is exactly the same as the pub in Newport, Oregon, where the food was rather poor.

They have most of their beers on tap. I paid $4.75 for a 4 beer sampler (served in the same baseball-bat-like glass holder), and was given another handful of samples for free. Looking at the list on their web page, I remember seeing on tap:

American Amber
Brutal Bitter
Buckwheat Ale
Chocolate Stout
Dead Guy Ale
HazelNut Brown Nectar
Imperial India Pale Ale
Imperial Stout
Kells Lager
Morimoto Imperial Pilsner
Morimoto Soba Ale
Old Crustacean
Oregon Golden Ale
Shakespeare Stout
Rogue Smoke
Yellow Snow
Younger's Special Bitter

Several other cheap beers (Bud, Miller, etc.) and a hand pumped cask ale (apparently not a Rogue brew) were on tap.

They also had many of these available in large bottles, as well as some bottles of beers that were not on tap.

I was very impressed with the Imperial Pilsner and also enjoyed the Imperial Stout. I was ambivalent on the Yellow Snow, Old Crustacean (a barley wine), American Amber, and Buckwheat. I really disliked the Chamomellow, which tasted like honeyed chamomile tea, though it apparently has a lot of fans so it might be worth at least asking for a taste.
