On a sunny day in the Fall of 2008, we found ourselves sharing beers and engrossed in a conversation that began about starting a business but quickly delved into personal values and visions of the future. The four of us quickly realized that we shared more than a passion for great beer; we shared a value set about life and the role that beer plays in it. A dream was born and the wheels were set in motion to open our flagship Glisan Street brewpub in early 2010.
The days were long and the sleep was short but year after the year our business grew through hard work and relationships. Migration endeared itself to the local community through fundraisers, events and tireless self-distribution of draft kegs. In the Spring of 2017 we signed with the largest beverage distributor on the west coast and the next chapter of the business began when we opened our 20,000sf Gresham production facility in 2018. Since then, the company has become one of the fastest growing breweries in Oregon with distribution in Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Idaho, Hong Kong, and Japan.
We believe that every beer we make has the power to ignite a conversation. To bring an idea to life. To bring people together. We invite you to share in our values of community, chasing dreams and passion for great beer!
Migration Brewing believes in turning dreams into reality. We believe in sweat equity and doing it yourself. We live for sunny days on the patio. We are independent, progressive Oregonians who measure success one pint at a time. We foster community and inclusiveness. We love our city and state. We believe in the power of beer, people, and chasing dreams.
We believe inside every beer there is a power.
A power to ignite a conversation and to bring people together. Rooted in the Pacific Northwest since 2010, we’re proud to serve hundreds of thousands of people, and distribute millions of cans of beer every year. The Pacific Northwest is all about adventure by heart, and trailblazers migrating from all walks of life.
Our award winning beer will compliment those journeys no matter the setting. Whether it’s a modern IPA or a classic brew, we honor the evolutions of taste and manner so you can experience this region’s premium resources in every sip. That’s why we say it’s ‘Beer That Backs It Up.’ Always innovating, always working hard to set the standard. Not just for today, but for the next generation of craft beer.
Life is a migration. And at the end of the day, great beer makes the journey.
As Co-Founder and Head Brewer of Migration, I stand behind every beer we make. Our goal is simple; to create community and memorable life experiences through world-class beer. Since 2010 we have grown our humble business through passion, high-quality ingredients and constant evolution. I hope you enjoy our beers with friends, family or wherever your journey takes you, cheers!
