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.

12 Bridge Ciderworks opened its doors in June of 2017 and is a veteran and locally owned company. We take great pride in the cider we make, creating delicious fruit-forward cider that isn't juiced-down or overly sweet. Our fresh-pressed apple juice comes directly from the orchards in the Hood River Valley, and most of the other secondary fruits and ingredients used to make our cider are sourced locally, where possible.
Over the years, Jason has molded his craft into the wonderful beers he makes now. He has made beer styles in almost every category, even some that won't fit into normal styles. In 2010 he met his soul mate, Kelly, who shares the same love for beer and brewing that Jason does. The couple started MadCow Brewing Co. as a side project in hopes of growing the business to a great local brewery.
Growing up on a dairy farm, Jason was surrounded by all types of cows, even angry ones. Occasionally, you would shout, "That's one Mad Cow"... and the name stuck and early on during his homebrewing days, Jason called his brews MadCow!
