I’ve been brewing beer as a home brewer for just over 11 years. For the past 4 years I’ve had a pretty steady stream of 4 taps flowing at my house at all times. There’s a new energy “brewing” amongst both consumers and brewers alike. “Think Global, Drink Local” has a whole new meaning. Small artisan brewers are doing this purely for the love of the hops, yeast, barley, and water. Brewing, right down to its soul!

Over the past few months, there have been a lot of conversations about how Portland, OR is home to an amazing 40+ breweries, all within the city limits and how the surrounding suburbs could only lay claim to a small handful. It is my quest to help change this, and bring craft beer back to Milwaukie. Short Snout Brewing will be a 1.5 barrel brewery focusing on unique flavor combinations…Blackberry Sage Porter, Harvest Wheat (an American style wheat made with Riesling) just as examples….and high quality, hand crafted beers all based out of Milwaukie, OR.
