Northeast Portland’s 15th Avenue Hophouse is closing suddenly this Sunday, September 29th. Opened in 2013, the 15th Ave. Hophouse was the second location/spinoff of the successful Hawthorne Hophouse – both locations were recently sold to new owners. 15th Ave. general manager Bryant Cocks (formerly of The Growler Guys SE Portland) was just beginning efforts to reintegrate the taphouse as a more active participant in the local beer community.
Fifteenth Avenue Hophouse announced the closure via a facebook post citing four break-ins in the past year as the cause. The New School has learned that the owners of the building were not going to renew 15th Ave.’s lease. The recent break-ins sealed the deal and hastened the closure. 15th Ave. Hophouse came under new ownership just this past Spring and was a valuable family friendly pub in the relatively under served Irvington neighborhood in Northeast Portland.
Fifteenth Avenue Hophouse’s last day is this Sunday, September 29th. They will be killing the kegs with $3 pints and $10 growler fills all week.
