Thomas Kemper Soda was first brewed by Andy Thomas and Will Kemper as alternative to beer at an Octoberfest celebration on Bainbridge Island, WA in 1990. The first Thomas Kemper Soda was handcrafted Root Beer. Thomas Kemper Sodas are still handcrafted and made with honey (although cane sugar is the primary sweetener), Madagascar vanilla, and other flavors available.
Vertigo Brewing is sharing the best of its beer styles with the local community in Hillsboro, Oregon. The brewery opened in September of 2008 and operates in an industrial building located right off the busy Cornelius Pass Road. The brewers and staff have been involved in the beer industry for over 15 years and enjoy the collaboration of the craft.
We focus (non-monogamously) on aroma-driven, complex, flavorful, sessionish beers. We often brew hybrid styles, combining the features we like from established categories to create new, Island-Of-Doctor-Moreau-style mash-ups.
The Base Camp family has grown a bit since we first opened our doors. Our crew represents decades of work in the brewing industry and a common love for life here in the Pacific Northwest. When we make the time to get out of the brewery, you can find our team out having fun. Whether we’re in the water off Short Sands Beach, setting up camp on the Wonderland Trail, slashing pow turns in the Outback on Bachelor, or drifting a line out in the Umpqua we are proud to live, work, and play in the Pacific Northwest.
As 3rd generation apple farmers, we believe quality starts in the orchard. We produce our craft hard cider from farm-to-bottle to achieve the perfect balance of aroma and flavors. From picking apples in our heirloom cider orchards to crushing, fermenting, and eventually bottling the cider, the apples never leave our hands. What makes us special in the world of hard cider is our commitment to always use fresh pressed apples for fermentation of our cider. This separates us from commercial ciders that are produced from concentrate, apples that are cooked down at high heat into a concentrated form, destroying much of the flavor and aroma from the fruit.
Bull Run Cider produces craft hard cider at the foothills of the Oregon Coast Range in Forest Grove, Oregon. In making all of our ciders we begin with the apple as we believe this is the starting point for making the finest cider.
Culmination Brewing is built around the idea that sustainable manufacturing and building practices can and will lead to superior products and customer satisfaction. Great beer, with good food and community can be brought together in one concept, under one roof.
Our in-house craft brewery revives a brewing tradition in McMinnville started in 1878 by Anton Ahrens and W.R. Bachman of Ahrens Brewing Company. We strive to produce handcrafted beers of exceptional balance and complexity for your enjoyment. In 1998 we announced the release of our flagship beer – Red Thistle Ale – in bottles, so our craftsman beers can be enjoyed at home.
The brewing of beer has been part of civilization for over 5000 years, and Klamath Basin Brewing is honored to be part of this tradition. We use top quality malts, hops, and yeast in all our beers. Combined with the talent and hard work of our head brewer, Corey Zschoche, these ingredients are transformed into our award winning brews.
First brewery in Portland, Oregon to package beer in aluminum cans! We are now operating on a 10bbl system after upgrading from our little 1bbl nano-brewery. After 3 years of churning out tiny, little, mini “nano” batches on a non-stop basis, we actually get to have a little time left over for events and minor necessities like sleep.
