Three Portland breweries under construction on Industrial Way are making good progress:
- Austin Street Brewing (facebook, twitter) has their “brewhouse and fermenters up and running” and explains that “If everything goes well with government approvals and other paperwork we should be able to legally brew and sell beer within 2 months.”
- Bissell Brothers (facebook, twitter) is all set up and has brewed their first batch.
- Foundation Brewing (facebook, twitter) continues to have equipment delivered and is in the process of setting it up.
For some additional details on Austin Street and Bissell see the What Ales You column in today’s paper.
