3 Reasons to Travel with Scott Lawrence
If you’ve heard of Portland beer, you’ve heard of Breakside Brewery. Being synonymous with the craft brew scene is not an easy venture, but Scott 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.
He Wants to Celebrate
10 years ago in Alaska, Scott decided to leave his job in software 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 roots?
“Eating and drinking with friends is one of our unofficial mantras at Breakside,” says Scott. That simple feeling has awarded them Brewery of the Year at the 2017 Oregon Beer Awards and 2017 Best of Craft Beer Awards.
He Loves Beer
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.
