Something to be Thankful For

I wish you well from the icy reaches of the Maine woodlands (current temperature: 1° F). On this day of thanks, when you’re possibly descending into pitched political battles over the IPAs and roast beast, I offer you something to really appreciate: new breweries. Brewers Association economist Bart Watson posted a map of all the breweries that opened since last Thanksgiving. There are a thousand of them (!). For the local readers, here’s a list of Beaver State openings, according to Bart’s map:

  • Barsideous (Lebanon)
  • BDSM (Hillsboro)
  • Bine Valley (Salem)
  • East Fork (Joseph)
  • Ferment (Hood River)
  • Geist (Redmond)
  • Hopheads (Salem)
  • The Horn (Depoe Bay)
  • Look Long (Portland - Arbor Lodge)
  • Modern Times (Portland - SE Industrial)
  • Porter (Redmond)
  • Ratchet (Salem)
  • Smockville (Sherwood)
  • Vice (Grants Pass)
  • Von Ebert (Portland, two locations)
  • West Coast Grocery (Portland - Buckman)
  • What’cha Brewing (Florence)
  • The Wheel Apizza (Eugene)
  • Xicha (Salem)

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
