Featured Sponsor

Taprock Northwest Grill

Taprock Northwest Grill is proud to enter its fifth year as a Platinum Sponsor of Rogue Winterfest. While Taprock holds true to its original goals of being an active member of our community and providing exceptional Northwest hospitality and regional cuisine, a lot has changed over those five years. The most recent and exciting change has been rebranding the lounge area—aka Taproom. With the addition of 24 craft brews on draft, daily happy hour specials, and Taprock’s new Pub Menu, you can enjoy the comforts of the Northwest lodge with friends by the fire for a drink or catch the big game on the new 60-inch TV. Stop in for happy hour daily from 3:00 to 5:30 pm to enjoy half-price appetizers and drink specials. Come anytime and check out the Pub Menu, which offers new favorites like Oregon Thunder Eggs and Flatbread Pizzas.
