Portland’s Brew History (Julia Kirkpatrick and Chloè Womack

Portland’s First Brewery:

Artists Chloè Womack and Julia Kirkpatrick have recreated the historic Weinhard Brewery Complex on West Burnside. Weinhard was one of Portland’s first brewers. After immigrating to Portland from Germany in 1856, Weinhard opened the Weinhard brewing complex in 1864. Nowadays the building is home to Henry’s Tavern and Porland is known as a mecca for beer lovers. While Portland’s beer history is rooted in Henry Weinhard and the historic brewery, it’s present and future are centered around craft brewing– small scale batches. In front of the building are the steps to making beer, and as a handout is a list of local Portland craft breweries, stores, bars, and homebrewing supply outlets to further Portland’s beer culture.
