3 Reasons to Travel with Breakside Brewery
If you’ve heard of Portland beer, you’ve heard of Breakside Brewery, named 'Brewery of the Year' at Oregon Beer Awards for the past five years and counting. Being synonymous with the craft brew scene is not an easy venture, but owner Scott Lawrence has carved a name for himself over the past decade. He started a brewery because he knew two things: he liked food and he liked beer. We’re glad he did.
Alaska is Where It Started
Ten years ago in Alaska, Scott decided to leave his job in sales and start a business in an industry he knew nothing about. What better way to commemorate his crazy idea than by going back to its Alaska roots.
Okay, this one’s obvious. The guy quit his job to open a brewery. But if you’re headed into the wilds of Alaska with someone, it’s good to take comfort in the fact they know their way around a can, bottle or keg.
“Eating and drinking with friends is one of our unofficial mantras at Breakside,” says Scott. It's that same spirit that drives him to be such an awesome travel companion.
