In yesterday's post, I concluded by listing all the breweries scheduled to open in Portland in the next few months ... and missed at least three. Goes to show how many there are. So, let's review and see if we can capture a the full scope.
- Alchemy Brewing. This is Jason McAdam's new brewery. Jason was formerly with Roots, and brewed one king-hell of a fine imperial stout there. Alchemy will join the legions in Southeast Portland. Placeholder website here.
- Breakside. A brewpub scheduled to open in Woodlawn, an under-served part of Beervana. Scott Lawrence, a homebrewer, will man the mash tun. More info here.
- Coalition. A brewpub at 28th and Ankeny, and maybe the furthest along of this bunch. Owners Elan Walsky and Kiley Hoyt hope to work with homebrewing customers to create recipes (thus the "coalition"). More info here.
- Harvester. A gluten-free brewery from James Neumeister and Katrina “Kat” Jensen. Neumeister roasts the sorghum used in the beers. (See Brewpublic for more.)
- Migration. This brewery is just North of Coalition at 28th and Glisan. The owners say it will be open in "early 2010." (See Bill's write-up and also their Facebook page.)
- Mount Tabor. Bill sussed this one out on the OLCC website (.pdf). All we have is an address: 824 SE 73rd.
- [New!] Natian Brewing. A recently-opened 1.3-barrel nano brewery located at NE Sandy and Couch. They appear to specialize in cosmically-hoppy beers. (The 75 IBU IPA is described as "An IPA for non-hop heads.") Info: webpage, Facebook, Myspace.
- Occidental Brewing. Another phantom, this one has a logo, but we know no more.
- Rivergate Brewing. A North Portland pub on Lombard and Peninsular that plans to add a brewery. Early reviews are a bit mixed.
Update: It occurs to me to mention that while there are eight breweries listed here, I can imagine at least a few reasons why some won't ever come to be. It's a lot easier to plan to open a brewery than it is to actually open one. That said, a couple of these are well on the way.
