On December 6, 1985, shortly after Oregon's Brewpub Law passed, beer expert Fred Eckhardt took a series of photographs documenting the first batch of Liquidator. This photograph shows one of the open fermentation tanks they used at that time. Brewing leaves behind various waste products. McMenamins gives some, such as brewers yeast and used hop flowers to local farmers for livestock feed. In keeping with their goals of making earth-friendly beer, when possible they retrofit used equipment rather than purchasing everything new.
