Bridgeport Celebrates Three Decades Of Craft Brewing In Oregon

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.
