More about Oregon City Brewing: The American dream is starting a business in your garage. Then growing out of the garage and transforming a derelict carpet store into a living room for the community. Our goal is to build a multi-generational business where employees and customers are treated like family. Oregon City Brewing is a new American brewery, the product of our thriving Oregon craft beer culture, shaped deeply by Oregon City values: quality craftsmanship and a spirit of innovation. “We were born and raised in Oregon City and most of our family still lives there,” co-owner Bryce Morrow says. The last time there was a brewery in downtown Oregon City was 1895 by Henry Weinhard. Oregon City Brewing aims to do Henry proud by pioneering beer for the Pioneer City.
