Award-winning brewer Christian Ettinger, who’s been doing some wonderful things at Laurelwood Brewery in Portland, Oregon, will be opening his own place later this fall. It will be located on SE Powell Boulevard near 29th Avenue. Congratulations to Christian. No word yet on what the new brewpub will be called. I look forward to trying his new beers soon.
I assume brewer Chad Kennedy will be taking over brewmaster duties at Laurelwood but no official word yet if that’s the case or not.
