Breakside Brewery coming to Gresham
A popular, award-winning Portland brewery with taprooms across the region is expanding into East Multnomah County.
Breakside Brewery announced Tuesday morning, Nov. 9, that it will move into the Gresham Vista Business Park to both expand its commercial brewing operations and open its sixth taproom/restaurant.
"We are excited to be able to continue to meet customer demand for our beers," said Scott Lawrence, founder of Breakside. "This site is perfect for us, not only allowing us to build a new brewery, but also create a unique destination for beer lovers that is also family- and dog-friendly."
Gresham Vista Business Park was acquired by the Port of Portland in 2011 and has become a manufacturing and logistics base in the heart of Gresham. As part of the move Breakside is planning on offering scholarships to Mt. Hood Community College and support the Downtown Rockwood development.
"This project fits perfectly at Gresham Vista, which is the gateway to our community," said Shannon Stadey, Gresham economic and development services director. "It is an excellent example of the type of project that not only adds family wage jobs for our residents, but also supports growth of a local company that is committed to the Gresham community."
The new Gresham location likely won't be opened until 2023.
Breakside Brewery opened in 2010 in Northeast Portland as a restaurant and pub, and has since grown to produce 30,000 barrels of beer annually.
Some of Breakside's flagship beers include the Wanderlust IPA, the Breakside Pilsner and the Stay West. The brewery also has special featured releases and seasonal brews. Learn more at breakside.com.
