The largest of McMenamins' breweries, the Edgefield Brewery opened in 1991 in the old cannery building of the former Multnomah County Poor Farm. Original artwork by Joe Cotter and Scott Young depicts the history of beer along the walls, and two of McMenamins' more popular brews, Black Rabbit Porter and Edgefield Wheat, originated here as did an early company Strong Ale known as Edgefield Extra. The Extra is set for a reboot and an encore series of releases in 2014 and forward. Edgefield Brewery has easy access to freshly dumped whiskey and rum barrels from the Distillery up the path, and as such, a healthy barrel-aging program has been undertaken. Watch for special barrel-aged treats to be unveiled at the monthly releases at the Distillery Bar.
