The award-winning Deschutes Brewery, an Oregon craft beer pioneer, will join the Concourse D concessions programme and Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), Portland’s first eco-brewpub, will join Concourse E.
“With more than 260 craft breweries throughout the state and 19 million annual brewery visitors, the craft beer industry is a cornerstone of the Pacific Northwest experience and a tradition embraced by locals and tourists alike,” said Chris Czarnecki, Port of Portland director of PDX terminal business and properties.
“For that reason, it’s our pleasure to welcome two of Oregon’s most celebrated breweries to the food and beverage programme at PDX, where they will further the local presence so widely appreciated by our passengers.”
Family and employee owned since 1988, Deschutes Brewery has become the cornerstone of Central Oregon’s flourishing craft brew culture.
Utilising organic malts and a combination of locally-sourced, organic, and Salmon-Safe hops, the 20-barrel HUB brewery produces 13,500 barrels of beer a year for its three brewpubs and distribution throughout the Northwest.
SSP America’s CEO, Michael Svagdis, says: “At SSP America we believe restaurants are at the heart of every community’s story, and airports play a leading role in telling that story.
"Bringing these two extraordinary breweries to PDX is a wonderful example of our passion for community anchored dining at the airport.”
