Stop by to taste a true original! Our old standby, Hammerhead Ale is on tap at all locations. This rich chestnut-colored gem is model of harmony between hops and malted barley - there's a reason this classic has such a dedicated following. In celebration of the Brewpub Bill anniversary, Hammerhead will be at Happy Hour prices all day and $5 off growler fills.

LIVESTREAM starts at 2 pm.

35th Anniversary of the Brewpub Law

35th Anniversary of the Brewpub Law

July 13 marks the 35th anniversary of Oregon's Brewpub Bill, signed into law at the urging of brewing pioneers Mike & Brian McMenamin, Kurt and Rob Widmer, Art Larrance and Fred Bowman (Portland Brewing), and Dick and Nancy Ponzi (Bridgeport Brewing). This group of beer loving entrepreneurs persuaded Representative Tom Mason to sponsor a bill that would allow beer to be brewed and served within the same establishment. The effort failed to pass Oregon's Senate earlier in the year, but after tacking it onto a new bill, it was signed into law by Governor Vic Atiyeh on July 13, 1985 and changed history forever - for the better, as far as we're concerned.

Tune in to McMenamins Facebook for a livestream on July 13 at 2 pm for an interview with Brian McMenamin about the fateful bill. Then join us in raising a glass of your favorite ale to 35 years - and to drinking it just steps away from where it was made.

About Lola's Room

The music has stopped – for now. All McMenamins, except 23rd Ave Bottle Shop, are temporarily closed. We’ll be ready for you with beer, wine and burgers when this is over. Until then, stay safe.

An oasis below the Crystal

The little sister of the historic Crystal Ballroom, Lola's Room is located on the second floor, directly below the Crystal. If you're a fan of DJ'd dance events, raging local rock showcases or intimate seated performances, then take a moment and bookmark this page.

The navigation menu at left is your roadmap to Lola's Room and the other offerings at the corner of 14th & Burnside. Check out what's coming up on the Events Calendar, let us host your next party or simply investigate our brewery, artwork and history.

A night at Lola's Room should always include a stop by Ringlers Pub or Ringlers Annex, where the vibe will fit your mood -- great pub fare, handcrafted beverages, engaging conversation, a good pool game, a rowdy party or a groovy DJ in a dimmed setting.

Never stop exploring! This website is a continual work in progress, and will develop over time. Watch for photo tours, sound samples from upcoming acts and much more. Meanwhile, be our guest, wander and enjoy!

Looking for your Crystal Ballroom and/or Lola's Room Passport Stamps?

A 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.

If you cannot make the tour, stamps for the Crystal Ballroom and Lola’s Room are also available when you see a show. The shows can be ticketed or free – as long as you’re attending an event in the venue, you can get that room’s stamp. Please note that if you’re attending an event in the Crystal Ballroom, you will need to attend a separate event in Lola’s Room to get the Lola’s stamp and vice versa. Stamps are always exclusively available in their own 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.

Explore the Crystal Blocks

Our Crystal Hotel and legendary Crystal Ballroom are just across the street from each other, each offering their own unique spaces for live music, Northwest style fare and McMenamins hand crafted beverages.  Explore these properties and all they have to offer. 

*Get 15% off room rates at Crystal Hotel, Sunday through Thursday with a ticket purchase. (Must mention at time of booking, must verify ticket at check in for discount) *restrictions apply.
