A Vision of the Future

Who are we, and what do we want to accomplish? Two questions we asked ourselves on day one.

Who we are is important because it defines how we go about accomplishing our goals and how we craft our vision and mission. Are we greedy and short sighted, or are we creative, giving, and hard working? You may not know us, but we hope it takes very little time to discover we are the latter.

Our passion for brewing, our desire to craft fantastic beer and offer it up to anyone with a thirst, will keep us energized and ever creative.

What do we want to accomplish? You probably hear this a lot: “We want to brew the beer we like to drink.” Dozens, if not hundreds of brewers have said that over the years, and we totally get it. And it partially applies to us as well. We LOVE a dank IPA or a clean Kölsch, but we can also find amazing local examples of those anytime of year. But it’s a bit harder to find a German-style Rauchbier, a Belgian-style Gueuze, or a Rum Barrel-Aged Barleywine.

We’re not trying to say that we’re the one brewery in Central Oregon that will be thinking “outside of the box”. Most local breweries do just that, and do it very well. But a lot of the time those wonderful beers are one-offs or only available once a year for a short period of time. Our goal will be to always have a kettle sour or Berliner Weisse, a Russian Imperial Stout or Old/Strong/Stock Ale, and a Kriek (Cherry) Lambic or Oud Bruin on tap year round. They are just too damn delicious to have to wait 8-10 months for.

The Big Decision

After two years of growing hops and home brewing on site, today we made the decision to begin planning a brewery.

I know what you’re thinking… with 29 breweries in Central Oregon and four more slated for 2017, and with a new brewery/brewpub opening every day in this country… why do this?

Forget about the way most of us think when discussing breweries and beer. Let’s talk about a country like Germany or Belgium, where a small village may have a dozen breweries, all run by households. These exist for a few reasons: they make beer for family and friends to consume at meals and on holidays, and they most likely truly enjoy the art and task of brewing, much like a baker or chef. And I’m betting that the number of breweries two blocks down the street or 5 miles away doesn’t really matter.

So why not make just enough beer for family and friends (hopefully hundreds of them). And why not do it because you’re truly passionate about it, and because you’re joining a caring and creative bunch of misfits around the world. Both the hobby and profession are growing by leaps and bounds every year, and your friends will appreciate your authenticity, dedication to quality, and creativity.

Terrebonne currently has no breweries. Think anyone will complain if we start brewing up some awesomeness?
