Mike and Brian McMenamin built McMenamins based on their passions in life -- beer, food, art, history. The Hillsdale Pub, the second in their chain, opened on February 8, 1984 and not only rested on neighborhood history, but created Oregon history. The pub opened on land occupied since 1850, first by Hillsdale founding father James Slavin, later by a TB sanitarium, an auto camp (an early version of a motel,) and a fast food restaurant. Their new pub extended this legacy as a new neighborhood hangout, until it became the first brewpub in Oregon since Prohibition. This early menu includes the Captain Neon Burger which is still on McMenamins menus in 2016.
