Original Pattern Brewing Company Breaks Ground in Oakland

Oakland, CA — Original Pattern Brewing Company has announced that it has broken ground on a new brewery and tasting room located at 292 4th Street in the Jack London neighborhood of Oakland California.

The Original Pattern tasting room will open to the public by the end of 2017. The brewery,located in a brick and timber former warehouse, will feature alight-filled “indoor beer garden” by day and a cozy setting for meeting and making friends by night. The tasting room will have a mix of communal and intimate seating and is inspired by both vintage and modern design.

Original Pattern is co-founded by former Director of Brewery Operations at 21st Amendment, Ryan Frank, along with partners Caitlin O’Connor, Max Silverstein and Margie Silverstein. “We are thrilled to be a part of the growing Oakland craft beer scene and vibrant local community.” said Ryan Frank. “Opening a brewery has been a long-time dream of all of ours. I met Max and Margie while we were studying brewing at the Siebel Institute and World Brewing Academy in Chicago and Munich. Max and I took a fateful trip to Prague where I met Caitlin, my wife and now business partner, while she was studying abroad. The stars aligned once we all decided to partner on this project and build the craft brewery of our dreams. Craft beer has always been a part of our stories and now more than ever.”

The Original Pattern team will release a wide variety of beers throughout the year. The tasting room will feature beers that are inspired by traditional Belgian, German, English, Irish and American styles as well as beers that are unconstrained by style guidelines and will incorporate an on-site barrel aging and sour beer program. The team chose a 20 hectoliter brewhouse and plans to have 6-10 frequently rotating beers on tap to ensure that the beer is as fresh as possible.
