Hillsdale Brewery & Public House

A part of Pacific Northwest microbrewing history

You'd never guess that this humble spot in Southwest Portland is full of beer history. See that big, bowl-shaped planter in front of the bar? It originally held the mash for the company's very first onsite brew, crafted in October 1985. And that framed piece of scribbled-on paper near the door? It's the original brew sheet for that first brew.

The Hillsdale was McMenamins first Brewery!

This pub holds a special place in the hearts of our McMenamins brewers, and in Northwest brewing lore as being among the pioneering brewpubs in the state — stop by to learn the whole story.

We raise a pint to you, Hillsdale Brewery & Public House. You're a true original.
