New Happy Valley Public House to Feature Taproom, Bunk, Pizza Jerk, Mi Mero Mole, and Others

A new mixed-use complex called Happy Valley Public House that will feature a new larger Valley Growlers taproom and new locations of Portland favorites BUNK Sandwiches, Pizza Jerk, and Mi Mero Mole, among others. The 22,000 sq. ft. space construction is from Valley Growlers owners Ami and Brian Shannon and will also feature a big event space and indoor and outdoor decks, fire pits, dog-friendly areas, lawn games, live music, and more.

The Shannons are partnering with Glennie Properties LLC to begin development on Happy Valley Public House with a groundbreaking ceremony and party on Sunday, July 16th, from 4-9pm with food, drinks, music, and games.

In addition to the previously mentioned restaurants, Happy Valley Public House will have a coffee shop serving locally roasted beans and pastries from Lauretta Jean’s; and The Whiskey Kitchen, a whiskey bar and restaurant. Also included will be a rentable private dining space. All four restaurants also plan to serve brunch on weekends, accompanied by mimosas and Bloody Marys, courtesy of Valley Growlers.

More from the recent announcement:

While the Public house is the anchor tenant of this development, two other buildings grace the property as well: Heidi Rowan’s new AllState Agency location and another mixed-use building containing twenty-six high-end apartments, 17,000 square feet of retail, and an underground parking garage for residents.

Ami and Brian envision the development being somewhere Happy Valley residents can gather to enjoy the Portland vibe of their favorite restaurants, beverages, and entertainment in town and under one roof. All this while providing the great beers, ciders, wines, and cocktails that have helped make Valley Growlers a community favorite since 2013. It’s truly a project both for and by the people of Happy Valley, who the Shannons say helped make it possible via their investments of money, time, and input.

Dalke Construction and architects from AC+CO will begin work on the development next month. The groundbreaking party and ceremony will take place at the property on Sunday, July 16th from 4:00-9:00pm. It will include food, drinks, music, and games.
