The Commons 3rd Anniversary Party

Commons 3rd Anniversary Poster

Portland’s The Commons Brewery, the nano brewery that became a full-fledged, award-winning farmhouse brewery, is celebrating its 3rd anniversary months before expanding to a new location and brewhouse.

Press Release:
These past few years have taught us a lot and have also brought us new friends. On December 6th, we hope you can join us to celebrate the last 3 years, from the great beers to the bruised backs, and wish us all many more. Our taplist will be a mix of a few favorites from the cellar, a few debut beers (including a special Imperial Stout made specifically for this event) and some sessionable mainstays.
