I've been to this Rogue pub twice and both times it was quite enjoyable. The bartenders are very friendly and helpful, and they've got a few binders with extensive information about each of their beers which comes in handy. The beer selection and quality is excellent. They have taster sets--four 5oz size beers of your choice for $5.75--and I've tried many of their beers. They have classic styles as well as more unusual beers that have flavors like juniper, chipotle, or pumpkin in them. I definitely recommend checking this brewery out if you're in Eugene!

Right in the middle of town this Rogue was packed with people. Lots of track memorabilia due to this is Track Town USA. Good Rogue beers and track town ales. I had the 200 meter ale and 400 meter they where very tasty. I also got some lunch here and it was very good. 5 regular taps and 4 seasonal there are plenty of beer styles for all. Good looking place. I really had a good time here. Just avoid during game weekends when the Ducks are playing.

I love the Eugene City Brewery for one fact: the entire line-up of Rogue Ales. Friday nights are trivia nights and you can win prizes. The food is good, but nothing great. It really is all about the beers.

Far Far too many to count and list, but favorits would include: Old Crusty Barley Wine, Shakespeare Stout, American Amber, etc. There is always something new to try here! The bar setting is fun.

Join the Rogue Nation to get pint discounts immediately! Time it right and you can get case discounts on 22's when they clear out extra inventory.

Historic restaurant/brewery with a new Rogue connection. The bar area toward the rear includes additional tall table and counter seating with the table dining area located toward the front windows. There appeared to be additional seating downstairs as well as a few tables outside. When we visited, 6 of the taps were house brews (Track Town Ales), 5 seasonals, 4 guests and most of the remaining were Rogue brews. I went with the house Fresh Hop Pale and a Younger’s Special Bitter from Rogue. We stopped by mid afternoon so street parking was available out front and since we were late heading out to the coast, we didn’t sample anything from the menu.

This place is typical of Rogue brewpubs - low-key, not fancy but functional (dark ceiling with hanging lights, generic light colored floors and walls) and it looks well used. The beer is what takes priority, not the ambience. It’s fairly large, with lots of tables of chairs in the main area (where kids are OK) and a good-sized bar area at the back, separated by a low wall. The bar itself is made from aluminum sheets with wood trim and has tall chairs and steel foot rests. The lower half of the walls in the bar area are covered with the same aluminum sheets as employed on the bar. There are several TVs (sound off) and music in the background. Outside in the front are five round tables with umbrellas and a big stainless steel brewing vessel (fermenter?).

The atmosphere is casual and relaxed.

And of course the beer is good, being Rogue. They have the usual large Rogue beer selection along with several beers brewed only at this location (Tracktown ales) and a few guest taps. On our last visit during Oregon Craft Beer Month in July, the guest taps were other local Oregon beers, including a wonderful stout from Willamette Brewing (also in Eugene, but with no tasting room as yet).

A couple small notes about the restrooms - at this place, the men’s room is labeled “hops” and the women’s room is labeled “barley”. The Rogue in Issaquah, WA uses the opposite labeling (which we think is more accurate). The women’s room itself is an exception to the usual Rogue decor and is quite beautiful with walls painted in blue and scattered with paintings of pink shoes and various characters from the Yellow Submarine animated movie.

I stopped here during my last two visit to Eugene. Am I glad I did!

This is not a real fancy place, but it is dedicated to good beer. There is some sidewalk seating in front and a deck out back. The bar seats about a dozen and there are a couple of long elevated tables right near the bar for large groups. I’m guessing the restaurant area seats about 50.

They have 36 taps including the largest selection of Rouges this Midwesterner has ever seen. About 8 of the non-Rouges are brewed on site. They also have a few well-chosen guest taps.

The staff was incredibly friendly, had great beer knowledge and was very free with samples. If you as much as mention a certain beer, they throw a sample in front of you. Great service!

I thought the food was pretty tasty. They incorporate beer in a bunch of the offerings and also use Rouge cheeses, rums, etc to add flavor to the food. I’ve had great fish tacos and some tasty beer, cheese & sausage soups.

Try to stop by on Wednesday for free bingo. They give out some great prizes like bombers, tee-shirts, etc.

This is a friendly and laid back place that seems to reflect the personality of this nice town. I will be back!
