Three Mugs Brewing Company in Hillsboro is turning two! It seems like just yesterday when I visited and wrote about their opening. Three Mugs is owned and operated by the Jennings family. I first met the Jennings crew through Brew Brothers, their homebrew shop. They taught me how to brew and are the kind sponsors of my blog. They're awesome people, and they make excellent beer!
They're holding their 2nd anniversary celebration at their taproom on Friday, August 15. Swing by, enjoy the beer, music, and food (from PDX Monte Cristo)! For more details, read on...

About Three Mugs Brewing Company
Founded in January of 2013 by Jay, Christopher (aka “Amish”) and Wendy Jennings, Three Mugs Brewing Company taproom opened its doors in August of 2013, offering a humble five guest taps. By November 2013, they boasted 20 rotating guest taps, and by late January 2014, they began brewery operations. Their first beers made their debut in the taproom during the Oregon Brewers Guild event, Zwickelmania 2014, on February 15th. Joshua Jennings—little brother—joined the Three Mugs team in June 2015, along with his wife, Cassie, making this a true “all in the family” brewery and taproom. Three Mugs beers range from tasty standards like Ample Amber Ale and Mein Schatz German-Style Hefeweizen to big beers like BIGGie D’s Strong Scotch Ale and Fiery Wench Imperial Red Ale. Experimental and small batch, limited release beers are also be a staple.
The "Three Mugs" of the logo actually represents Christopher, the eldest son, on the left with his red beard, Jay, the father, in the middle with his stogie, and Joshua, the youngest son, on the right...the tongue doesn't do the real one justice.
About Lace & Lead
Lace (Emi) and Lead (Trysh) met back in September of 2012 when they were both playing separately at a dive bar in Portland, OR, on the same night. They met up about a month later to jam, and have been playing together ever since. Different musical backgrounds have influenced their sound. To them, country music is more about the stories behind the songs than fitting into a certain mold of what country music is "supposed to sound like." Life happens, and there always seems to be something new to write a song about. The inspiration behind their music comes from the kind of songs you put on repeat over and over again. Writing clever songs that resonate with people while coming up with new ways to approach popular topics is their biggest feat. Their motivation comes from picturing their songs being influential in the lives of others. Music can be a voice for people who don't know how to express what they're feeling. It's changed their lives, and they want to create songs that sustain over time.
