Portland Brew Stories

Multnomah County Library Portland Brew Stories logo

The Story of Portland Brewing includes neighborhood breweries that have a tradition of bringing the community together. Many breweries have created family friendly spaces for community members and neighbors to gather in, either by providing community activities or taking part in efforts to improve the community around them. Brewers have a collaborative approach in sharing their passion, beer, with their neighbors and friends as do libraries when connecting our community with information.

With help from our friends in the local brewing community, Multnomah County Library has assembled one of the most comprehensive collections of digital materials related to one of our area's most important and defining industries. Portland Brew Stories shares and celebrates the beer culture in our community.

To learn more about the history of hops and brewing in Oregon visit the Oregon Hops and Brewing Archives. Many thanks to OHBA for their help in this project.
