Looking for good beer? Check. Want to watch the game? Check. Need some grub to cure that hangover from last night? Double check.
2305 NW Monroe Avenue & 130 SW 1st Street
With their Monroe location so close to campus, this happening spot is often filled with Oregon State students and staff unwinding after a long day of classes. In the warmer months, you’ll find a full patio and music. Want to avoid the college crowd? Head downtown for a great mixed drink in a cozy atmosphere. Food highlights include the Hangover Helper Burger and the Spicy Hushpuppies.
Suds & Suds
1045 NW Kings Blvd
On that backside of Woodstock’s Pizza Parlor, Suds & Suds is possibly the best spot to get your craft-concoction sip on – while simultaneously feasting on pizza, watching the game, and playing from a small variety of cards and board games. The cozy bar is cash only and offers a mean variety of over 30 domestic, microbrews, and imports on tap, and features promo nights on most Thursdays, where the swag flows as fast as those sweet and savory tap selections.
Flat Tail Brewing
202 SW 1st St. Corvallis
This 7-year-old riverfront brewpub has a sizable menu of alcohol-inspired creations, such as a french-toast sandwich, a beer boiled onion burger, and build-your-own mac and cheese. They have a good variety of “resident” brews and seven seasonal beers on tap. It’s a great place to watch the game, or for a trivia night with friends. Open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
Sky High Brewing & Pub
160 NW Jackson Ave
The nights are getting colder, but the rooftop’s hoppin’ at Sky High. The pub and brewery offers an evolving tap selection of house-brewed beer, fine cocktails, classic pub fare, and entertainment to liven the night. Sky High hosts bands, open mic nights, themed parties, and more. The rooftop’s complete with cornhole, space heaters, and sweet spots for sunset views.
Block 15 Brewing Co
300 SW Jefferson Ave and
3415 SW Deschutes St
Block 15 is a Corvallis staple, and they provide locals with some of the best beer in Willamette Valley. They have two locations, one downtown and one just south of town. Each location has its own specific menu in terms of food, and only the downtown location is considered a full restaurant. When a brewery has its own bakery, don’t expect normal pub fare. Two happy hours a day, woohoo!
635 NE Water St., Albany
Deluxe opened in 2013 in an old warehouse building along the Willamette. This “brewstillery” features its own craft lagers as well as gin, whiskey, and grappa made by its partner, Sinister. It also houses a barbeque food cart, a shuffleboard league, and ping-pong tables. Bingo, trivia and yoga take place regularly so check the calendar! The tasting room is open 3 to 8 p.m. weekdays, 12 to 8 p.m. Saturday, and 12 to 6 p.m. Sunday.
