Leikam Brewing, Oregon’s first certified kosher brewery, celebrates its Grand Opening on Sunday, August 16th, at Growlers Hawthorne, coinciding with the Hawthorne Street Fair. Now there is even more reason to make it over to SE Hawthorne on the 16th as just 2 blocks away from Growlers Hawthorne is The Mighty Mites session fest held at the exact same time from 11am to 7pm. Founded by Theo and Sonia Marie Leikam, the certified kosher, community-supported nanobrewery debuted its first beer at The New School’s New Breweries Showcase at Baileys Taproom in June. Now with the 5-barrel brewery in full production, the couple can officially celebrate their grand opening.
The opening will feature 4 of the couple’s beers, including two of the flagships, the Shoreline Pale and the Janis Hoplin IPA. The other beers featured will include the Funky Town Apricot Ale and a limited edition double IPA. There will also be live music, giveaways, and lots of fun for all.
