Three years ago, Mainbrew (then known as Main Street Homebrew) started carrying a small selection of bottles in their small downtown Hillsboro shop. I wrote about this as one of my first blog posts. That was just the start of a tidal wave of changes. They moved to a much larger space, greatly expanded their bottle and keg offerings, added growler fills, and even changed their name. Now you can even drink a pint from one of five rotating taps (one of which is dedicated to Boneyard) while you shop.
Well things are about to change again! As you can see from the picture below, they're adding a taproom. While Portland has plenty of taprooms, this one will be very unique. That's all I can share at this time, but I hope to provide more details soon. It's going to be big!
As an aside, Mainbrew is offering a nice $11 deal on Living Social for a five beer sampler, grenade glass, plus a fill. Check it out here. The Mainbrew site lists what's currently on tap.
