Breakside Brewery to Open Third Location


Portland, Oregon’s Breakside Brewery is growing once again and will add a third brewpub location in 2016, the company announced Monday.

Slated to occupy 5,000 sq. ft. of space in Portland’s “Slabtown district,” which is located in the Northwest part of town, Breakside said the new location would open next summer.

“We are really excited about this new project and to be a part of what’s developing in Northwest,” Scott Lawrence, brewery owner and founder said in a statement. “This next evolution for Breakside will give us the opportunity to get even more creative and effective with our beers, and have a glittering premier location we can share with more friends in Portland.

Breakside opened its first brewpub in 2010 in Northeast Portland and eventually added a larger, 30-barrel production facility and tasting room in Milwaukie, Ore., located nine miles southeast of downtown Portland.

Breakside said it expects to produce 15,000 barrels in 2015, up from about 8,000 barrels in 2014.

In a press statement, Breakside said it partnered with design-build firm Green Gables to create the new space. The new brewpub is also part of a mixed-use development project known locally as “The Block 296 Project.”
