Bridgeport Celebrates Three Decades Of Craft Brewing In Oregon


The “BridgePort Trilogy Series” to premiere in January

PORTLAND, Ore.November 6, 2013— BridgePort Brewing Company, Oregon’s oldest craft brewery, will celebrate 30 years by releasing the “BridgePort Trilogy Series,” three limited edition beers. The first two beers in the series will honor pivotal moments in BridgePort’s history by highlighting the adoption of aroma hops and the IPA movement. In contrast, the third and final beer in the series will explore what’s still to come for craft beer in Oregon.

It’s great to be turning 30, but it’s even more exciting to see how far the craft brewing industry has come in the last three decades,” commented brewmaster Jeff Edgerton. “Hop breeders in Oregon began developing varieties of aroma hops in the ‘60s and ‘70s that had intense and interesting qualities. The large domestic brewers weren’t interested at the time because the hops were ‘too intense’ for the products they were making. BridgePort and a handful of other craft brewers picked up on these varieties and started making flavorful, all-malt beers that had incredible taste and aroma. The rest is history.”

Migration Brewings 3rd Annual Holiday Prefunk

We know the winter Ale fest at Pioneer Court House Square can be a little overwhelming so each year Migration Brewing and Taplister are happy to bring to you some of the best winter ales from five local breweries.

Don of Yelp Portland, a sponsor of this years Holiday Prefunk, will be spinning some great funkadelic tunes to help wash those delightful holiday ales down.

The last two years we have taken this opportunity to collect food for the Oregon Food Bank, however this year we felt there was a much better cause to support. We will be donating 20% of the nights proceeds to Angelo M De Ieso II an amazing friend of Migration, the over all beer community and all the breweries involved. Angelo has accrued some medical bills due to an unforeseen condition nobody saw coming, which could happen to anyone of us and we all want to help.

So please stop by and join us for a pint some great music and exceptional beer from some of the best and kindest breweries in Portland and surrounding areas. The breweries that have been so generous to help us with this annual event are: Gigantic Brewing, Pfriem Family Brewers, Breakside Brewing, and Burnside Brewing.

Migration Brewing Announces Expansion

When Migration started in 2010 we leased 3,000 square feet of a 5,000 square foot building with the dream of future expansion. Migration Brewing is excited to announce that dream will come true with construction on the other 2,000 square feet of our building starting November 1st. This expansion will be the start of our journey to increase front of house seating by 50% and beer barrel production by 60%.

Our expanded front of house will now more than ever facilitate crowds to: cheer on Timber playoff victories, the Blazers newly found flair, day drinking with the World Cup matches, private event space for celebrations and community groups, and long summer days on the larger patio. We will be able to accentuate all of Portland’s favorite activities with our new kitchen and reinvented menu coming in early 2014.

We will also gain additional cooler space and storage allowing us to increase cooperage with the purchase of new 15bbl fermenters in 2014. This will allow the brewery to produce more high quality seasonal beers, while still providing the year round beers customers have come to love.

We will be open during regular business hours and will be taking all precautions to make sure the construction will not affect the experience or ambiance at the current pub.

To celebrate our new space we are planning on celebrating December 31st 2013 with live music, DJ, extended hours, and a brand new beer with limited 750ml bottles available. So mark your calendars and join us for a celebration towards the next great Migration.

Bridgeport Brewing Hop Harvest 2013

This year’s Hop Harvest adds Oregon hops at both ends of the brewing process

PORTLAND, Ore. – September 10, 2013 – BridgePort Brewing Company decided to try something new this year with its Hop Harvest beer. BridgePort’s brewmaster, Jeff Edgerton, took two trips to Annen Farms in Mt. Angel, Oregon to harvest over 900 pounds of fresh hops to use at the top and the bottom of the brewing cycle.

The BridgePort team was on their way to harvest four hundred pounds of fresh, green Oregon Fuggle hops earlier this summer to get Hop Harvest started. At the end of fermentation, the team returned to collect an additional five hundred pounds of green Tettnang hops to add before cooling. The two step process of adding hops at both ends of brewing embodies the meaning of fresh and local.
