About Meet the Makers

Meet the Makers

The largest of McMenamins' breweries, the Edgefield Brewery opened in 1991 in the old cannery building of the former Multnomah County Poor Farm. There's a lot of history on these grounds that's believed to fuel the flow of creativity. This team produces beer of impressive quality, stunning imagination and in grand volume. Come meet the Brewers and bring your curiosity as they're a communal wealth of knowledge. Enjoy this one time offering because when it's gone, it will be no more.

This event is an Official Limited Edition Beer Tasting! You can obtain an experience stamp, getting you one step closer to a $20 gift card, if you've purchased the Passport Insert that allows for additional experience stamps.

About Ben's Fresh Hop Ale

from Cornelius Pass Roadhouse Brewery
This is the perfect collaboration between brewer and grower. Pesticide and cage free from an estate in Warren, the Nugget and Cascade Hops in this brew were picked and used within 24 hours to preserve that fresh hop goodness. The end result is a Fresh Hop Ale with a fruity aroma, moderate bitterness and as crisp as an Autumn night.
Malts: Pilsen, Honey Malt
Hops: Chinook, Organic Nugget, Organic Cascade
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.90 IBU: 17 SRM: 4

About Eclipsed Sunrise Herbal Extra Pale

We brewed this Herbal Extra Pale during the 2017 Eclipse for guitarist, Plini, and his September concert in Lola's Room. Together, we crafted a beer that reflects his diverse musical influences and his self-described inner-hippie, bridging the gap between a hoppy, refreshing Extra Pale and an old-world Gruit. Floral and tropical, with notes of soft citrus, we hope you enjoy a pint at the Crystal!
Special Ingredients: Hibiscus, Lemongrass
Malts: Pilsen, Caramel Pilsen
Hops: Mosaic
OG: 1.047 TG: 1.010 ABV: 4.77 IBU: 30 SRM: 3

About Duskbringer Pumpkin Ale

from Edgefield Brewery
Duskbringer celebrates autumn with its darker color and seasonal ingredients. This beer was brewed with 200 pounds of squash and pumpkin that was hand cut, cubed, roasted and pureed by the brewers before it was added to the mash tun and kettle. It's authentically hand-crafted and spiced with just enough allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger to accentuate its rounded, earthy malt character.
Special Ingredients: Yams, Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Ginger, Allspice, Vanilla
Malts: Marris Otter, Crystal 60, Dark Munich, Roast Barley
Hops: Horizon
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.010 ABV: 6.00 IBU: 7 SRM: 21

About Edgefield Oktoberfest

The Edgefield Oktoberfest is a traditional seasonal lager, brewed in honor of the changing seasons. It pours a beautiful, crystal-clear copper color with a creamy off-white head. Subtle aromas of sweet bread and toffee greet the senses. The first sip opens up with a crisp, clean toffee flavor with a touch of sweetness and a dry, subtlety spicy, citrus aftertaste. A quaffable fall lager to celebrate the annual harvest. Prost!
Malts: Light Munich, Dark Munich
Hops: Tettnanger, Perle
OG: 1.057 TG: 1.015 ABV: 5.42 IBU: 12 SRM: 10
