Our taproom opened September 18, 2015. A little over a month later we began brewing on our custom built 15 barrel system. By December we began serving our first two beers brewed onsite: Box Shaker Blonde and Baseline Stout. We are proud to be an independent, self distributed craft brewery distributing to local area taprooms, bars, and restaurants and have sold beer to over 200 different locations throughout the Portland metro area including John's Market, New Seasons Market, Market of Choice, and Made In Oregon. Check out our "Find Vanguard" page to see the establishments we have recently sold beer to.
