About Crystal Brewery

6 Barrel Brewhouse 
Established: February 1997

2016 Brewery Production: 1,615 barrels • 3,230 kegs • 400,520 pints

This second-story brewery is home to well-seasoned and endlessly creative brewers Drew Phillips and Stephen Harper, who in addition to the usual company standards and seasonals, work to have a constant rotation of flavorful and unique offerings for patrons of Ringlers and the Ballroom, as well as three outlying pubs. House favorites include No Bad Days IPA and Stephen Weizen. The brewers here also make frequent use of the barrels made available by the Edgefield Distillery, and these fabulous barrel-aged beverages are not to be missed.
The brewery itself is housed in what was originally the Crystal Ballroom's dance rehearsal studio. Bits of the legendary ballroom's history are depicted on the brew and fermentation tanks, including a stern portrait of Lola Baldwin, the conservative policewoman who stayed busy during the Jazz Age keeping booze and other vices out of this place. One of McMenamins' pioneer brews, Crystal Ale, was named honoring the ballroom before the property was acquired. The recipe was refined in 1997 to coincide with McMenamins reopening of the ballroom.

Looking for your Crystal Ballroom Passport Stamps?

Crystal Ballroom, Lola’s Room & Crystal Brewery Tour occurs daily at 2 p.m. - meet at Ringlers Pub (street level below the Crystal Ballroom.) The tour takes about half an hour to complete. Any questions may be directed to the Crystal box office, 503-225-0047.

Stamps for the Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room are also available when you see a show – ticketed or free – in either venue.

Please note: Due to private events, concert setup needs and brewers’ schedules, not all spaces are guaranteed to be available to tour daily, but our staff will give it our best shot and show you the spaces that we can.
