Stickmen Brewing Company began in 2013 as a lakefront brewpub based in Lake Oswego, OR brewing on its 7-BBL system. In 2017, Stickmen opened a production brewery and taproom offering wood-fired pizzas in Tualatin, OR. Principal owner and recipe creator, Tim Schoenheit, grew up in a home where new food experiences were the norm with exposure to many cuisines. This fostered his creativity and love of experimentation and has influenced his desire to offer a wide range of beer styles. Stickmen always maintain 22-24 different beers on tap, keeping year-round favorites, rotating seasonals, and offering plenty of experimental beers to keep things fresh and provide the markets they serve with innovative and unique craft beer.
Breakside Brewery opened in 2010 in Northeast Portland as a restaurant and pub brewery and has grown to be a highly regarded regional brewery producing 30,000 barrels annually. The brewery is known for its broad portfolio of award-winning, innovative beers. In 2013, Breakside expanded operations to Milwaukie, OR with a production facility and taproom capable of producing 40,000 barrels of beer per year. The brewery opened its third location in 2017- a lively brewpub in the Slabtown district of Northwest Portland. In 2019, Breakside became one of only a handful of employee-owned breweries in the country.
In addition to winning many national, international, and regional awards for its beers, Breakside was named Brewery of the Year in 2017 and 2019 at the Oregon Beer Awards and the 2018 Best of Craft Beer Awards.
