The largest of McMenamins' breweries, the Edgefield Brewery opened in 1991 in the old cannery building of the former Multnomah County Poor Farm. Original artwork by Joe Cotter and Scott Young depicts the history of beer along the walls, and two of McMenamins' longer running brews, Black Rabbit Porter and Edgefield Wheat, originated here as did an early company Strong Ale known as Edgefield Extra. These days in addition to their regular rotation of standards and seasonals you can often wrap your hands around a pint of sublimely hopped Major Threat Double IPA or lose yourself in a dreamy draught of Night Court Barleywine.

Perhaps most impressive though are it's legion of beers from the wood. Edgefield Brewery has easy access to freshly dumped whiskey and rum barrels from the Distillery up the path, and as such, a healthy barrel-aging program has been undertaken. Watch for these spectacular barrel-aged treats to be unveiled at the monthly releases at the Distillery Bar and Bagdad Theater.

Brewery tours are generally offered Monday through Saturday at 1 p.m.
