Deschutes normal line up is pretty good but the special releases are where it is at. Get some Abyss, Dissident, Black Butte XXIV etc...... If they send any of those I would swoop them up.

I just checked and they have 10 beers on tap, one tap for experimental beer, and some others on tap that I've never had!

Driving three hours to Portland for Rouge wasn't worth it to me, but for Deschutes, it would have to be a winner!
Bend is better but Portland is good as well.

Actually, 21 beers on tap, and they have a lot on tap that isn't bottled and distributed. The food is OK, but overpriced.
Also, there is no Rouge brewery in Newport or Portland, but there is a Rogue.

Agree on food being overpriced. Apps and beer is where it's at there.

Rogue, rogue brewing. Same ****.

I can't wait to get Red Chair when it gets here so I can compare it to mine. It is delicious

Anything much over three hours one way is just silly for a beer!

In 2008 I took a road trip to Seattle, from Los Angeles. I stopped at a place I think in Salem, OR, called McMenamin's (there are multiple locations throughout Oregon, as I understand it). I had started drinking somewhat recently and only liked a few beers, but I tried something different every time I got a chance (still my policy, but not possible as often now, obviously). At this microbrew I got a taster of 6 different drinks and they were all SO good. I don't remember what they were, just that they were all good, and they were among my first beers that seemed 'real'. Man I want to go back someday...

Black Butte Porter- cask conditioned from the source in Bend, Oregon is the best beer I have ever had... hands down- no other beer is even close... I make a special trip there- several hours away- just for that amazing experience...

I'm on my phone and can't see where your at. I'm assuming up north.

Either way, I highly recommend taking a vacation and going to bend for a week or so an doing the bend ale trail or at least visiting as many of the breweries down there as you can.

My wife and I did the ale trail in 3 days on our honeymoon in August.

Mcmenamins is spread out throughout the Portland area and up the I5 corridor into Washington a ways. I have 2 within 5 minutes from where I live and go to both regularly.

Not the best beer in the world but iirc they brew on a 10 barrel system at both locations and the brewers have a lot of freedom. This is good because there are 1 or 2 new beers on tap every time I go! Foods good for the price as well.
