As part of our Good Beer Mates series, we'll be hosting Commons for an exclusive 'Meet the Brewer' event, sharing insights on brewing in Portland, alongside Melbourne brewing stalwarts 3 Ravens Brewery, who they have brewed a very special collaboration with.
It was a notion of gathering with friends, family, and neighbors to enjoy a beverage, a meal and conversation that The Commons Brewer was rooted in when it started in Mike Wright’s garage in Southeast Portland.
The Commons strives to make well executed, approachable beers with a refreshing and lively character. You can call them yeast forward, they’re comfortable with that. The beers are geared to be session-able and therefore enable or enhance social interaction. For consumers, the focus should be on friends and family they are sharing time with.
Hosted by fellow barrel-thusiast 3 Ravens brewer Murray Robinson, come hear from Commons brewer Sam Pecoraro, who began his brewing career in 2012 at Burnside Brewing Company in Portland, Oregon.
In 2015, Sam moved from Burnside up the road to The Commons 'inner-city rustic farmhouse brewery'. Inspired by tradition, The Commons beers encompass a range of styles, from the farmhouse ales of Northern Europe, to classically crisp German-style lagers, and a range of experimental barrel and Foeder-aged sours.
