About Us


“Our in-house craft brewery revives a brewing tradition in McMinnville started in 1878 by Anton Ahrens and W.R. Bachman of Ahrens Brewing Company. We strive to produce handcrafted beers of exceptional balance and complexity for your enjoyment.


In 1998 we announced the release of our flagship beer – Red Thistle Ale – in bottles, so our craftsman beers can be enjoyed at home.”
