Hillsboro's Three Mugs Brewing Co. is turning three! I originally wrote about the brewery shortly after they opened for business. Time has flown by, and they're celebrating their 3rd anniversary on Saturday, August 13.
I recently sampled a few of Three Mugs' newest releases, Meanderin' Mandarin Pale Ale and "We'll Make one More Sour" Sour Ale, at the 15th Annual Roadhouse Brewfest. Both were light and crisp, with loads of juicy fruit flavor. We'll Make one More was actually my favorite taste of the brewfest, and quite unexpected since the members of Jennings family aren't fans of sour beer. They may not like 'em, but they sure know how to brew 'em!

About Three Mugs Brewing Company
“Awesome Beers, Awesome Friends” sums up the premise on which Jay, Christopher and Wendy Jennings founded Three Mugs. They wanted to brew awesome beers for everyone to enjoy and wanted to create an environment in which everyone was welcomed as friends and family. Their first beers made their debut during the Oregon Brewers Guild event Zwickelmania 2014. Christopher has moved on to join Alameda Brewing. However, a new face arrived in June 2015: Joshua Jennings joined us after a 6 1/2 year stint in the Army. Joshua has taken on the bulk of the brewing at Three Mugs. Between them, Jay, Christopher and Joshua have almost 60 years of brewing experience as home and professional brewers. The "Three Mugs" of the logo actually represent Christopher (“Red Beard” or “Amish”) on the left with his red beard, Jay (“Stogie Dude”) in the middle with his cigar, and Joshua (“The Tongue”) on the right with, uh, his tongue. Wendy designed the original logo for the family's homebrew products business, Brew Brothers. We decided to use this very recognizable logo when we launched Three Mugs, as well.
About Sons of Malarkey
Sons of Malarkey (SOM) is a local band with a foot in Irish Trad and a foot in Celtic Rock…a perfect mix of the two. Founded in 2009, their smooth vocals and fantastic music capture listeners from the first note. What began as jam sessions around kitchen tables has become a seasoned live band that performs throughout the Pacific Northwest. SOM has always had a strong love of the traditional, but they love the modern elements as well. An SOM set includes covers of traditional Irish favorites such as “Finnegan’s Wake” and “Whiskey in the Jar”, as well as toe-tapping originals like “Gone, Gone, Gone”.
