Wilsonville, Oregon, is getting a bit more beery with the city’s 2nd brewery, Vanguard Brewing. In 2014, Wilsonville got The Beer Station and very recently the 3rd location of Neighbor Dudes taphouse, which has its own brewery, Ordnance Brewing, located in Boardman, Oregon. Wilsonville previously had the McMenamins Old Church brewery as its only beery claim to fame.
Vanguard Brewing will be the first brewery in Wilsonville outside of the McMenamins location, and is finalizing a lease at 27501 SW 95th Ave, Wilsonville, OR 97070. Brewer Don Anderson and his wife and business partner, Lin, are planning a 15bbl production brewery with an 800sq. ft. tasting room. The brewhouse is being designed by Global Stainless in Canby and awaiting order, with plans to open the brewery by summer 2015.
