    I was just down at Harvester Brewing In SE Portland (great gluten free beers by the way - never thought i would ever say that) and a few things struck me that the guy working the taps said. First, there is a new brewery opening up shop on SE 11th and Sherman, called Baerlic Brewing. Does anybody know anything about this?

    Also, the guy also said that this area is has the most walkable, concentrated amount of breweries in the world. I am not sure if that was an off-hand comment or if it was true but it definitely made me think about it. From my house, I can walk to Cascade, The Commons, Hair of the Dog, Harvester Brewing, Lucky Labrador, Basecamp Brewing, a Mcmenimins, Buckman Botanical Brewery (attached to the Green Dragon and I think Rogue owns it. Its a no hop brewery, but I've never had any of their stuff.), and finally this new Baerlic Brewing.

    Have you ever heard of a place that has had so many breweries that can be walked to from each other. its borderline ridiculous.

    Here's the website of the new brewery.

    Shit - just broke the first rule of being an Oregonian - do not talk about being an Oregonian.

    Feel free to glance over this post without much thought. Sorry, ill try better next time.

    walked passed their location the other day but the windows were covered so I couldn't see the progress. The sign said spring 2014.

    I guess it depends on your definition of "walkable", but if you lived on 7th and East Burnside you would be 2 miles or less from the following breweries:

    Hair of the Dog
    Baerlic (when it opens)
    Lucky Lab
    Base Camp
    Rock Bottom
    several McMenamins
    Columbia River Brewing Co.
    Broadway Grill & Brewery (Old Market)
    Full Sail Pilsner Room & brewery

    Oh, and Amnesia (or whatever the new brewery in their former location is called), is about 2 blocks outside the circle.

    I'm sure plenty of inner eastside points will put you within a two mile radius of tons of breweries, but I think that specific SE/Central Eastside area (The Commons, Harvester, Lucky Lab, Cascade, and in a few months Baerlic) is becoming, or already is, 'Brewery Row'.

    Hey there,

    We are indeed opening a 10 barrel brewery and taproom in Spring of 2014. Right now are hard at work juggling all the beerocracy of licensing, permitting and the immense amount of fine print that comes along with opening a new brewery, but we are trying our best to keep people updated on our Facebook page if you are interested.

    And we are very excited to be so close to so many breweries!

    Yep. Nothing wrong with two 'rows'. Especially those types of rows. :slight_smile:

    Also, there are a couple more big real estate projects in the works around that area. The 'Goat Blocks' across from Cascade will converted into 84,000 square feet of commercial space along with the space in-between Cascade and the Grand Central Building which will have over 5,000 sq ft of commercial space. And that corner spot in the Grand Central Building on 9th and Belmont will be a The Growler Guys location. Hopefully some more brewery-beer related businesses will be in the mix as the Buckman neighborhood is really set to take-off.

    Got another tip. Another brewery, Ex Novo Brewing Company, is going in across the street from the Beermongers in May. So, two new breweries coming to that area.
