Ordnance Brewing is an outlier, a brewery out past the far edges of Pacific Northwest population centers, far from the region's corporate breweries and dense brewer communities - smack dab in the middle of a beer desert. As such, there are no predetermined expectations, no unspoken rules or formulas to be accountable to. It’s the freedom found in the wide-open spaces of the Columbia Plateau and expansive farmland. In this remoteness, we brew freely, with an innovative spirit, a farmer’s work ethic and the creativity of someone living off the land, making beauty out of little. The owners, brewer and brewery itself are on the fringe, uninhibited, driven to work together for a common cause, a unified mission: Brew distinct, honest and simply enjoyable beer.
With roots growing back to the early pioneers who cleared the land to grow fruit, corn, wheat and yes....hops, our founding partners come from a long line of Oregon farmers. The Coleman family landed in the Willamette Valley in the mid 1850s and soon purchased a plot to farm near McMinnville. After pocketing a little change from the California gold rush, the family purchased land near St. Paul and from their spread across the valley and up the Columbia Gorge. Cousins can be found all over the area with ties to prominent hop farms including Coleman Hop Farm, 3D Farm / BC Hop Farms and others. Craig Coleman, our operating partner, grows a variety of crops in the Columbia Plateau among which are blueberries that can be found in our Bloops. Our roots run deep in hops and Oregon which is why you can visit and explore our beers both at the brewery in Boardman or our taproom in Wilsonville.
Free To Brew
We’re brewing beer for people not fads, not trends, not corporate initiatives. For people, and because of this you can trust and count on our beer every time you pick up a bottle or draw a pint. Handcrafted from top quality ingredients, creativity and a desire to provide you with a delicious pint every time. We strive to produce distinct, honest beer in diverse styles that goes beyond being merely enjoyable to being damn enjoyable.
We started out with a 7 barrel system producing about 630 barrels a year including a variety of ales and lagers. 2015 brought a bigger vision and as we entered 2016, a new brewing system was ready for installation. This new system raises our potential capacity to more than 150,000 barrels. While we have big hopes and dreams, we will grow methodically and not overwhelm our team. Keep an eye out for our beers at your local tap room and if you don't see them, demand them.

After four years of service, Logan Mayfield departed Ordnance Brewing earlier this week with plans of opening a local brewpub, close by in Boardman, OR. Although Logan will be missed, he leaves behind a solid brewery team led by Paul Anderson (formerly of Deschutes Brewing).
Ordnance Brewing, the farmer owned brewery from Boardman, Oregon will take it’s two best selling beers, EOD Double IPA and Bloops Blueberry Wheat, into twelve ounce six pack cans and roll them out across Oregon and Washington in early April.
There are a growing number of quality whiskey barrel aged beers on the market and while Ordnance Brewing offers some of their own, they decided to take barrel aging a different route, into their regions wineries.
The waves can reach 50 feet high, sometimes higher. Competitors enter the waves under their own strength and face down one of natures most dangerous forces. One mistake and they’re in the biggest washing machine imaginable.

Preparing for the onset of dark days and cool, wet weather, Ordnance Brewing has released it’s Fall seasonal – Old Craig, an English Strong Ale and a very limited production whiskey barrel aged Imperial Stout, Bläckfiskey.
Never one to rest, Ordnance Brewing has crossed the Columbia River and signed with Kendall’s Pioneer in Kelso, Washington. The distributor will represent Ordnance in Western Washington to Tacoma and up the Columbia Gorge through Skamania County.
s the fifty-barrel system is set to come online in a month, Ordnance Brewing is expanding its start up distribution discussions. The brewery is currently in conversation with distributors in Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana and North Dakota.
Only eight days into 2016 and already there’s an onslaught of brewery expansions to report. On the heels of a year in which craft volume sales grew more than 18 percent, according to research firm IRI Worldwide, at least eight notable U.S. breweries have announced plans to scale their operations, in some cases making large multi-million dollar bets on the rising consumer demand for craft beer.
Ordnance Brewing has begun expansion of its brewery located just off I-84 in Boardman Oregon. The expansion moves them from a 7 barrel system to a 4 vessel 50 barrel system raising annual production potential to more than 50,000 barrels annually. The increase in production sets the platform for expanding distribution and support of four core beers in six packs as well as a rotating set of limited edition brews in bottles by Spring of 2016.
