Additionally, if you know of any events or festivals that we are not in please let us know so we can look into them and see if it would be a great fit! Here you go....read more
I had the fortunate chance to meet an awesome individual last Thursday. His name is Lloyd Palmer and he is an avid tap handle collector, something like 800+, wowzer! He collects as many Oregon micro handles as he can get and IPA's from anywhere.
On Wednesday, March 4th, the Oakshire expansion achieved another significant milestone. The concrete was poured for the new floor! All told, we brought in 30 yards of concrete, via three Knife River cement trucks. Ehlers Construction, the General Contractor on the expansion, allowed us to dye the concrete and we went with a nice Adobe color as the brochure called it. The dark brown hue is a nice change of pace to the usual and boring gray color concrete comes in. Next up we'll be completing the electrical and mechanical side of things followed by insulation, drywall, and painting.read more
Although construction broke ground in late November 2008 we are putting up our first pictures of the initial stages. We will be adding more pictures as the expansion progresses. Cheers!read more
