Adventures – A Trip To Beer Heaven: Part 2

After visiting Portland and Pacific City, me and my buddy Jeff went off to Newport, Oregon in search of Rogue perfection. We started out at the Rogue Ales Public House. This is where Rogue started out at and brewed all their beer until 1992 when they moved across the river to the big brewery. This is located down on the docks in the fishing district.

Here we had a couple of beers before we realized that the brewery was moved across the river. The coolest part of this restaurant/bar were the hand painted murals on the wall of various rogue beer labels.

We moved across the river to the amazing sight of Beer-varna

To get in you have to walk through the big red silo. I loved the message painted nice and high for everyone to see.

Inside you first walk through the brewery area. This has all the vats that hold their various brews waiting patiently for their transformation to awesome. Then up the stairs to the bar. Here, of course, they have every Rogue beer on tap, plus a tap for Coors Light. I asked the bartender why there is a tap for this lame beer. She responded by putting a glass under it and pouring out water. "We only serve Rogue here!"

Jeff and I wanted to try every beer, but there were so many we failed miserably! Here I am working on my sampler. My favorite here was the I2PA or XS Imperial Indian Pale Ale.

Best thing about being in a bar in Oregon are the Oregon Lottery Game Machines right there in the bar. Jeff managed to win enough to pay for our whole tab for the night!

They even had a bottle of the super rare Ten Thousand Brew Ale. Too bad I didn't get to try it.

The food was awesome too. Here is the hummus flanked by the Captain Sig's Northwestern Ale and what I think is the Double Dead Guy

We hung out until sunset then went off in search of seafood. We stumbled into the most amazing seafood place I've ever been in called Shark's. I had the delicious seafood cioppino made even better with a fresh Winder Hefeweizen. Soooooooooooooooo good.

We stayed the night at the super cheap Money Saver Motel and went back to Oregon for one more brewery visit, stay tuned for the conclusion!
