KEX Brewing (Reykjavík, Iceland)
KEX Brewing comes from Iceland and is run by friends and relatives, like the rest of the land of ice and fire. KEX Brewing is born from the need to create a subjective experience, without the slightest taste of universality. To create something of value is inclusive, not exclusive. It celebrates variations and multitudes. We reject the idea that there is any perfected process; that there is any finality. Within the process we discover, perfect, discard and start again. We live in this process, the undying pursuit of making, not something everlasting, but a momentary experience. Only perfect while it lasts. We make beer.

Lagunitas Brewing Company
Lagunitas Brewing Company began on a kitchen stove in Northern California in 1993.

Wherever you go, beer speaks, people mumble.
Old Town Brewing
Old Town has been a prominent part of Portland’s history for over 4 decades. Opening its doors in the spring of 1974 , Old Town quickly became a hub for like-minded people and a beacon for the local community; a place to break bread and enjoy your neighbor.

Olympia’s story begins with founder Leopold Schmidt, born in Germany in 1846. As an adult Leopold was an adventurer with the blind ambition of sailing the high seas, exploring the American Frontier, and mastering the art of German brewing. After training as a brewmaster in his homeland, the wild beauty of a new world was beckoning – Leopold set his sights on America. In 1895 he arrived in the Northwest, and there the catalyst for Olympia Beer, unbelievably pure water, perfect for brewing, was bubbling from the ground where Tumwater Falls and the Puget Sound meet. Today, we encourage you to follow your nomadic spirit, as Olympia invites you through the horseshoe for the adventure within. If you’re willing, the wild is yours. And the rewards never tasted so sweet.
Portland isn’t just in our name, it’s in our blood. We were born from the creativity which the city thrives. Founded by industry pioneers who had no rules or playbook, nevertheless helping shape the Portland beer scene we love today.

From that passion, each beer is created to celebrate “Portland Originals” like you, who are the creators, old and new, who make up this beautiful city we call home.
Portland Cider Company
We started the Portland Cider Company in 2012 with the intent of marrying English cider traditions with the innovative Northwest micro-brewing culture. Lynda hails from Somerset county of England, the traditional cider making region, and Jeff is a native Oregonian.
It all started from a desire to make the clean, dry cider Lynda grew to love in England, and Jeff yearned to find here. The first batches began in our guest room closet, 5 gallons at a time, made to quench our own thirst. We then introduced it to our friends and family, most never having drank cider before, and discovered we were on to something when our popularity soared and those small batches went fast! That cider is what became our signature and bestselling “Kinda Dry.”

Located in Salem Oregon, David Ryan and James Kohn, Co-Owners of Wandering Aengus and Anthem Ciders have been producing Cider for 11 years in the Willamette Valley.
