Ambacht Ales are unique, even here in the Pacific Northwest where brewing is an art. Our handcrafted ales are Belgian inspired and influenced by the bounty of our region. Ambacht ales are made using local, organically grown ingredients. Our flavors are balanced, not too hoppy or sweet, brewed with Willamette Valley grown hops. Ambacht ales are mashed at a low temperature, giving them a refreshing dryness, and have a clean, toasty flavor from our organic malts. All of our ales are naturally carbonated by bottle conditioning with Pacific Northwest honey, which gives them a sweet finish. But perhaps the most important ingredient in our ales is time: it takes about three months from brew day until our ales are ready for you to enjoy!

Beerded Brothers Brewing Company is started by two step-brothers, Gabriel Pedersen and Max Scudder.
Gabriel Pedersen, Owner, was raised in Vancouver, WA. After attending Evergreen High School, Gabriel attended the University of Washington, where he studied English Literature. After working for Microsoft for the past 5 years, Gabriel decided to help his brother Max launch their brewery. As the “business-side” of the brewery, Gabriel is excited to help build Vancouver's growing brewery scene along with Mt. Tabor Brewing Company, Lootwit Brewing Company and Salmon Bay Brewing Company.
An avid Ultimate Frisbee player, Gabriel still finds time to travel up and down the west coast as the coach of the University of Washington Ultimate Frisbee team. After 13 years playing and coaching, Gabriel still finds the flight of the disc to be one of the most mesmerising aspects of Ultimate Frisbee.
Max Scudder, Head Brewer, was raised in St. Helens, OR and moved to Vancouver, WA in 2003. After graduating from Evergreen High School in 2007, Max started homebrewing at the age of 21. With his friends help, Max has turned into a very accomplished brewer, winning two Blue Ribbons at the 2008 Clark County Fair homebrewer's competition. Max's recipes are the backbone that has helped launch Beerded Brothers Brewing.
Max's recipes try to keep one prinicple in mind; brew simple beers that everyone enjoys! Max likes to use agave syrup, orange peel, and other fruits in his recipes.
13503 SE Richey Road, Boring, OR 97009
My journey to Boring Brewing started 24 years ago when I began my ventures in Homebrewing. I read everything related to brewing I could get my hands on. Some would say I was obsessed. I always wanted to open a brewpub or brewery but it was always a dream for me. The stars seemed to align this last year and it looked like it was possible to open a brewery in a accessory building on my property. After jumping through mounds of paperwork, I finally became licensed to brew beer on a commercial level. This is where I bring you Boring Brewing - a Nano Brewery that is focused on quality. Our beers spend the correct amount of time in the fermenter followed by a cold age in a bright beer tank where optimal carbonation and flavor is obtained prior to making it to your pint glass.

Fire Cirkl produces unique products, resurrecting brewing traditions from antiquity, around the world, one recipe at a time. All of our recipes have a story and cultural history behind the ingredients they contain. All of our recipes are our own creations. We are among those pioneering the use of herbs other than hops. Unlike hops, there are no published numbers to reference for hitting one's targets. One must invent, experiment, and draw on one's gut and experience. Our recipes are not a result of archeological finds, for example, but rather created from research done on the brewing habits of a particular culture and era. We research a colorful culture and their brewing habits, then create a recipe that captures the essence of that culture, adapting it to appeal to the modern palate. Hence our tagline, "Olde recipes with a modern twist."
We are passionate about history - particularly ancient history and cultures - and seek to pass this passion on to consumers. Most people do not realize that the use of hops in brewing is a relatively recent development. Their first recorded use was around the year 1000 AD, and they did not become the herb of choice until around the time of the Protestant Reformation. The German Beer Purity law so often referenced in brewing is perhaps the world's first major drug law. Our ancestors brewed with many different herbs and combinations of herbs called Gruits (Gruts) that were believed to be inebriating and/or medicinal. Those who were allowed to sell these herbs had to be licensed by the Catholic Church. Much of the transition to hops is due to efforts to break the stranglehold the Catholic Church had on the brewing industry.
Fire Cirkl is the only USDA Certified Organic brewer in the Rogue Valley. This is a very substantial drain on our profit potential and greatly increases our workload. We practice organic processing because we believe in it, not because there is any money in it. Our research indicates that 10 percent of local consumers are willing to pay a modest amount more for an organic product over a non-organic product, and that amount does not come close to covering the added expense of producing these products. We practice sustainability because we believe that non-organic ingredients, cleaners and pesticide residues have a long-term detrimental effect on our health, our immune systems, and the other life forms with which we share this planet.
We are also one of the few commercial producers of braggots. A braggot is a style of mead - fermented honey. Mead is believed to be the oldest fermented beverage known to man, and was the favored drink of the elite in Medieval Europe. There is evidence of it being purposefully created as far back as 8,000 years ago. Over time, population pressure made honey scarcer and more expensive, and mead was supplanted in popularity by more available and less expensive forms of fermentable sugar. It remained treasured in most of the world up until the early 20th century, and is still popular in Eastern Europe. It is in resurgence in the west, though we still find that the overwhelming majority of people we encounter at tastings have never heard of mead, much less braggot.
Perhaps the best way to summarize what Fire Cirkl is about is the following paragraph. It contains our mission statement and appears on all of our labels.
"The mission and values of Fire Cirkl are represented in out logo - similar to the Zia - with four commitments that steer the company; body, mind, spirit, and planet. More than simply brewing for profit, we have tasked ourselves with a higher responsibility of doing our part to improve the human experience. We use organic ingredients. We practice environmentally sound, sustainable production processes. We seek to increase awareness and appreciation of our natural world and its history. We provide a trip back in time and brief insight to the history and culture behind the recipe in your hand. All of our products contain herbs that were highly valued by the cultures that used them. Find out more about our company, products, philosophy and information that we think will enhance other areas of your life at www.firecirkl.com."
We look forward to speaking with you!
Humble Brewing was a hobby turned obsession for Scott Davis and Chad Freitag. The name is suggestive of both their humble beginnings (and current home) in a detached garage in North Portland and their focus on creating tasty beers that surprise you with their simplicity. Beers that they hope people LOVE to drink, brewed in small batches. Though they've been making beer for the bars and restaurants of Portland since 2011, this will be Humble's first visit to the Nano Beer Fest.
Mazama Brewing is a packaging brewery in Corvallis Oregon own and operated by Jeff and Kathy Tobin. They started home brewing in 1984 and knew they had found a passion in their new hobby. Their brewing pursuits included making beer styles that were once very difficult to find in the United States. This finally led to a long delay trip the Belgium in 2011, which provided the inspiration to start Mazama brewing.
After spending nearly 30 years as an electrical engineer, Jeff left the high-tech world to pursue brewing full-time in 2013. He has found that his project management, engineering and science background serves him well as head brewer at Mazama.
Kathy as recently retired as an executive leading a high-tech printing and computing business unit. Her years of experience have helped create a solid foundation for Mazama Brewing's success.
55 gallon drums and pallet racking, those are the building blocks of the Red Ox frontier-style brewery. Our 1.5 barrel system is a product of shrewd bartering, trial and error and talented friends.
Its beauty is in its simplicity.
Our beer is best described by what it's not. It's not some over-hyped experience billed as the next great trend. Simply put, we brew high quality beer that's made for drinking.
Salem Ale Works was founded by two college friends and former wildland firefighters; Justin Ego and Jake Bonham. Their shared experiences and love of great craft beer gave rise to the formation of a nano-brewery in 2013; through which they plan to bring well-crafted and enjoyable beers to the Salem community and beyond.
At SAW we honor the rich history of Salem, striving to have fun while passionately writing the latest chapter in our capital's brewing legacy. Our beers are hand crafted in small batches using as many fresh, local ingredients as possible. We brew beer for you, our neighbors and friends; continually working at "Putting the Ale in Salem".
Stu and Becky Miller and their sons Rob and Fulton own Twisted Snout Brewery and Public House, located at the end of Main Street in Toledo, Oregon. Our goal is to serve a wide variety of excellent hand-crafted ales, each with its own unique character. Stu and his son, Rob, are our brew masters and together bring more than 30 years of brewing experience to our tasty line-up that includes Wilbur's White Wheat, Oops!, Gateway Golden, Twisted Snout IPA, Red-Headed Step Hog, and Honey Oatmeal Porker, as well as a steady stream of seasonal ales. All our ales are made right on site, and if we're not too busy brewing or cooking or serving our customers, you can even get a personal tour.
Twisted Snout is located adjacent to Pig Feathers BBQ, which Fodor's Pacific Northwest travel guide recently called "the best barbecue restaurant in the Pacific Northwest." Pig Feathers' food is available in the pub, and Twisted Snout's ales can be ordered from the restaurant. We are cribbage fans, so we have several boards and card decks available for you to use. We also have Twister! Some come get twisted - responsibly.
We welcome you to come have a great time with us and hope you love Twisted Snout as much as we do!
Two Kilts Brewing Co. opened in the spring of 2011 with a mix of repurposed stainless steel tanks coming together to make a not so pretty 6 barrel brewery. With limited funds to get started it would have to do, and do it did and very well at that. Brewers and owners Chris Dillon, and Alex Mcgaw agreed on a business theory that to this day has been a perfect approach for them. They said "We aren't going to worry about anything but the beer. If we take good care of it, it will take care of us." Three fast years later, they have done that and accomplished a lot. They now have a custom built 15 barrel brewery and not one bit of it is used. In fact, all the equipment the brewery has was new when purchased. This rapid growth was made possible by careful, skilled decision making, endless hours of working day jobs in the early days followed by working the brewery and tasting room by night. These sacrifices as well as the decision not to pay themselves for the first 2 years allowed them to pour all of their profits back into improving their brewery, always pushing to get to the next level. Two Kilts Brewing Co. is now distributed across the state of Oregon with plans to eventually be in the Washington State, California, and Western Idaho marketplace. Looking back at what they have done there is no reason they won't achieve these goals as well, through a rock solid marketing plan coupled with a professional and motivated team of distributors.
Chris and Alex both have a substantial background in beer and both are extremely passionate about their craft. They share the same passion for family and tell us their customers are not just friends, and that coming from Irish roots, (Chris) and Scottish roots (Alex) they feel that their customers are family too. This is one of the many reasons the pub feels like home to so many.
The brewery features 12 beers throughout the year comprised of 7 full time beers as well as rotating seasonals to make up the other 5. Seasonals vary all year long, but be sure to keep an eye on this website for real time beer selections and new release announcements. They are constantly thinking beer and often come up with innovative one off beers for festivals and events too. Samples and taster flights are always available so make sure you come in with some time on your hands because your taste buds will be busy for a while.
If you haven't been to Two Kilts Brewing Co. please look us up and come in soon. We would be thrilled to have you.
We're a group of four combat veterans who traveled the world after our military service. Between deployments and our travels, we felt like no one place was our home, we felt like vagabonds. We also found that in every place we explored, the one thing people of different cultures had in common was a love for beer, which we too had a love for. We decided to combine our passion for beer with our love of travel and adventure and share it with Oregon and the world. Vagabond Brewing opened up February 2014 in Salem, OR.

West Highland Brewing is founded by brewers Don Stewart and Sam Simms. Brewing one barrel at a time, their brewery is named to combine their love for West Highland White Terriers with their passion for brewing.
In its simplest form, beer is made from four things: water, barley, hops and yeast. These four ingredients can produce flavors ranging from the boldness of chocolate and coffee to the bite of grapefruit or the smooth sweetness of a banana.
While we occasionally add other ingredients to our beer, we do so while striving to create rich flavors capable of subtle nuance to entice the aficionado without straying from the straightforward, blue collar roots our beers share with the rest of Tacoma.
We like to experiment and you will almost always find a unique brew available only at our taproom, but we also do our best to make sure you can find your favorites in a can, bottle, or even on draft at your local watering hole.
