Because there are infinite recipe possibilities, we really struggle to make beer that’s “100% traditional.” So, while traditional beer styles serve as the starting point, we always feel obligated to have a twist to our beers in one way or another. We brew the same way that we like to cook, getting creative with flavors we experience in life.
We installed a five-barrel brewhouse built by our friends at Portland Kettle Works. Our eight five-barrel fermenters are not intended to support distribution. We chose this setup so we could have the ability to change our beer portfolio whenever we want. Our smaller batches let us cycle through various yeast strains. It is important to us that our evolving beer lineup is unique to Lowertown, not something available anywhere.
