Hopworks building before renovation


This photograph shows the west side of the Hopworks Urban Brewery before the transformation was completed. Christian and Brandie Ettinger purchased the Sunset Fuel Company building at 2944 SE Powell Boulevard in Portland, Oregon in 2004 with the intent of creating a sustainable brewery and pub. This was quite a change from the building's previous use as a bulldozer showroom and fuel distributor offices. Hopworks Urban Brewery brewed its first batch on site September 17, 2007. When completed the brewery would have a capacity of 6500 barrels per year. The pub portion of the property opened March 25, 2008 and staff had to limit the flow of customers when they reached fire code capacity. In 2015, remaining true to their commitment to the community and the environment, Hopworks earned the first B Corporation brewery designation in the Pacific Northwest for their ongoing work to positively impact the local community and environment. That same year, Hopworks was certified as the first Salmon-Safe brewery in the world.
