Barley, Barrels, Bottles, & Brews: 200 Years of Oregon Beer

  • Oregon Historical Society 1200 SW Park Ave Portland, Oregon 97205 (map)

Remember that ad that my fictional character Emerson Asher wrote for Henry Weinhard Brewing back in 1873? Oregonians have had a long love affair with beer. This exhibition examines the 200-year history of beer in Oregon, from the Lewis and Clark Expedition to early pioneer hop growers, from the nineteenth century European immigrants who established Oregon’s first breweries to the craft brewery revolution centered here today.
