Rogue brewery in Newport has been making some of the best beers around for 20 years. Some of my favorites are the Hazelnut Brown, Dead Guy and Mocha Porter, but I must say the best thing that they have if you have the huevos for it is the Old Crustacean Barley Wine, it is amazing! I haven't had too many beers from Rogue that I didn't like, and I've had most of them.
Now for the bad news. I was passing through Newport a few weeks ago and decided to stop for lunch at the Newport Brewery, well, that was one of the biggest mistakes I have ever made. They had a Kobe Burger on the menu and although I'm not sold on American Kobe, I decided to go with it. I not only had a hard time eating this garbage, I didn't even finish it, and after that plate of vomit, a beer and a very small tip, I spent $22.00. The Rogue brewery has never been known for it's service and this visit certainly was no different, but I couldn't believe how awful the food was, and to be honest, I was really pissed.
Good Beer + Bad Food = Rogue Brewery
