Portland’s Green Dragon, one of the newest bars on the scene (and trying to be a brewery) has been in a trouble almost from the beginning, despite vigorous support from the Portland community. It was founded, at least in part, by my good friend Jim Parker. It’s a great space and I’ve had a few wonderful times there. But it appears that Rogue is close to inking a deal to buy the location. According to the Brewpublic, the deal could close as early as sometime today. Brewpublic and others seem oddly opposed to it on a variety of levels, and rumors abound about the Green Dragon’s fate, and that of its employees. Rogue has responded that there are negotiations, but that’s all that’s known for sure at this time.
