An Oregon brewery is turning to new methods of brewing its beers in a new way.
The Oregonian reports the company, which opened a brewery in a former steel mill, is opening a new facility that’s making beer in a more environmentally friendly way.
This new facility is the first of its kind in Oregon.
And it’s not the first to open a brewery near Portland.
Oregonian columnist Jason Samenow reports the state is one of a handful that make beer from reclaimed wastewater.
The state also recently created a state brewery program to produce locally grown beers.
For now, Oregonian brewers are making a lot of beers for the taproom.
The brewery has two taps that sell limited amounts of beer.
Samenow says they’re doing a good job.
He says the tap room is a big draw and that people will pay for the privilege of seeing the brewery’s beers on tap.
