Hopworks asked me to join the crew at the The Oregon Hophouse recently as they harvested hops. You can read my report and see more images at the Hopworks site here.
Somewhere in the Northwest, temporarily tucked in a little black and yellow box with eleven of its buddies, is Hopworks bottle number one million which slid off the tiny bottling line late last week. I stopped by the brewery yesterday to shoot the new-and-improved 22-ounce Abominable Winter Ale bottle as it came off that same… Continue reading Million bottle milestone

A four pack of these 16-ouncers from Hopworks will seem all the more welcome. You’ll be able to stop by the store and grab a four pack of these brews –… Continue reading Hopworks in a Can

This guy must have known what was coming… Hopworks Urban Brewery opened last week. There might have been more bikes than cars in the parking area. One more reason to love Portland. I keep meaning to post a slide show of the progression of that project. It was fun to follow. In the mean time,… Continue reading First in line

Electricians Danny and Kyle were studying their final lighting project. Carpenters were building benches. Artists Cheyenne and Ed were hanging Cheyenne’s artwork. Electricians helped… Continue reading Coming Together
I’ve been photographing off and on for the past year and a half up the street as brewmaster Christian Ettinger and crew transform the old Sunset Fuel building into Hopworks Urban Brewery. Folks in the neighborhood are excited to have someone with vision and energy commit to such a huge project in a stretch of… Continue reading Cold beer, here.
