McMenamins is a family-owned company in the Pacific Northwest serving our own handcrafted beer, wine, cider, spirits and coffee alongside good, honest pub fare since 1983. Steeped in art, history and a sense of place, locations range from neighborhood pubs to historic hotels where live music and history talks are the norm, and soaking pools, movie theaters and other fun prevail.
Senate Bill 813, known as the Oregon Brewpub Bill, passes, allowing proprietors to brew and sell beer on the premises. Hillsdale adds a brewery, dubbed Captain Neon's Fermentation Chamber, and brews our first beer, Hillsdale Ale.Terminator Stout is brewed for the very first time and is still being poured today.
Bagdad Theater & Pub opens on Portland’s bustling Hawthorne Boulevard. Edgefield continues to grow, with the opening of an onsite brewery, McMenamins' largest to date, and the timing couldn't be better... The Power Station Pub opens on the property, serving beer crafted mere steps from its taps.
The cold wind was too much for one farmer, but in 1911 county officials thought Troutdale, Oregon was a good place for a poor farm. 75 years later, McMenamins envisions the now-abandoned institution as a magical spot for adventure, and Edgefield hotel rooms in the manor and the Black Rabbit Restaurant open for guests.
In a growth spurt of epic proportions, 19 pubs, small bars, venues and a hotel open. They include such highlights as Rock Creek Tavern, Greater Trumps cigar bar, Downtown Portland's iconic Crystal Ballroom, Olympic Club Pub, Kennedy School, and joining the Seattle-area community with four pubs.
Grappa is the first when spirts begin percolating from the still at Edgefield Distillery, and the adjacent Pub Course opens for the first swing of a club.Echoing with tales of Shanghai tunnels and resident spirits (of both kinds), the White Eagle Saloon & Hotel opens with regular live music to rock the house.
Topped with a rooftop bar and anchored by a cellar speakeasy, McMenamins becomes the custodian of a historic building to house Hotel Oregon on the picturesque main street of McMinnville.Our southern outpost, Roseburg Station, opens in an old train depot.
The drumroll of a marching band marks McMenamins' opening of a stately manor on 13 acres in Forest Grove. The Grand Lodge honors Mike and Brian's parents with namesake bars on the property.UFO mania is resurrected with a celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Trent UFO sighting near McMinnville at Hotel Oregon's first UFO Festival.
McMenamins takes the reins of a wedge-shaped block with a kaleidoscopic past in Downtown Portland and opens the Crystal Hotel, Zeus Café and Al's Den.Meanwhile, down in Wilsonville, a beautiful old church is refurbished and a neighboring pub is added, complete with grassy amphitheater and gardens.
What a long strange trip it's beenWhen Mike and Brian McMenamin talk about the Barley Mill Brew, an annual brewing tradition on the anniversary of our very first pub, they talk about the "connection with where it all started" and "the idea of sharing and being a part of the brew... that's the idea behind our business." With that in mind, we'll "just keep truckin' on" for years to come.
McMenamins currently operates 24 breweries, with our newest at Elks Temple in Tacoma, Washington. Since our first brew in 1985, McMenamins has produced more than 68,000 batches.
Founded in 1990, our Edgefield Winery crafts a diverse assortment of wines and ciders, all offered throughout McMenamins eclectic neighborhood pubs and gathering spots in Oregon and Washington.
McMenamins approaches specialty coffee roasting with the same passion for attention to detail that we apply to our ales, wines and spirits. Our roast masters use only beans from the highest-quality coffea arabica species – plants that produce coffees of elegant, complex flavors.
Both McMenamins distilleries, one at Edgefield in Troutdale, Ore. and the other at Cornelius Pass Roadhouse in Hillsboro, are now producing heavenly spirits of the highest order, from gins to whiskeys to brandies and more.
Take a look at the incredible artwork that adorns our walls, ceilings, floors, doors and more at our pubs, breweries and hotels. Who thinks up this stuff? Who creates it? What is the inspiration? Originally, the artwork served a practical purpose – as Mike McMenamin puts it, "We had good-sized walls to cover." But over the course of twenty-plus years, the art evolved into an expression of the building's history, the company's mission and of McMenamins itself.
Our goal is to keep the past in the present, to celebrate and connect us all with the people and events that have helped define each McMenamins property. To that end, we research, interview and compile materials to identify and commemorate our properties and their surroundings.
