  • McMenamins Kennedy School Sponsor

    In 1985, the McMenamins created the first post-Prohibition brewpub in Oregon: the Hillsdale Brewery & Public House. That same year McMenamins became the first brewery in the USA to legally use fruit in the brewing of ale (raspberries, for Ruby Ale, one of their standard ales). Today, McMenamins operates 25 breweries, produced more than 68,000 batches since their inception. Due to the nature of handcrafting, it’s safe to say that no two McMenamins batches are identical. Science and technology provide the backbone for their craft, but it is the unique qualities of each brew house, and the individual brewer’s ale-crafting style, that ensure you will enjoy liquid refreshments that are truly special and made with every care for the environment.

  • Baerlic Brewing Sponsor

    Longtime partners in crime, Baerlic Brewing owners Ben and Rik attended high school together, and have been home brewing together for the better part of a decade.

Ben is one of the best graphic artists in town, and created our very own BREWVANA logo, as well as all of Baerlic’s swag. Rik also happens to be one of the best bike mechanics in town, and utilizes his mechanical skills in the brewhouse, including an event which allowed tap room guests were able to hop on a bike and mill grain just by pedaling!

  • Wild Roots

    Wild Roots was created to fill the void for naturally infused vodka. There are few places in the world that produced fruit as flavorful and abundant as Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Each bottle of Wild Roots starts with a 6 times distilled and filtered corn-based vodka, infused with over a pound of natural Northwest-grown fruit. To capture the essence of the beautiful Northwest, we chose fruits that weren’t only rich in flavor, but history as well. Wild Roots uses almost 2lbs of real, Northwest fruit in every bottle of our infused vodkas. No artificial sweeteners or flavors, just fresh local, NW fruit.
