Bend-based 10 Barrel Brewing will open its 3rd restaurant in the brewers other major market of Portland, right across the street from Rogue’s Flanders Street location in the Pearl District. This will join 10 Barrel’s restaurant in its hometown of Bend and a more recently opened brewpub with it’s own brewhouse in Boise, Idaho.
The new pub is taking over the Mellow Mushroom space (no word on whether the outdoor paint job is staying) at 14th and NW Flanders. Details are scarce and there is no word on who the new brewer will be or the size of the brewhouse the location will have, but the team hopes to be open by mid-summer.
10 Barrel partner Garrett Wales says, “A new brewpub means more opportunities to put out small batch and one-off beers. The challenge of opening in Portland, one of the most innovative and educated brewing communities in the country, isn’t lost on us… we know expectations are high and we’re excited to get after it.”
