Ruse Brewing, West Coast Grocery Company open
Two new operations - one a brewery with taproom, the other a brewpub - have opened in July 2018. Ruse Brewing, originally a side project at Culmination Brewing, is now a full-fledged standalone operation on SE 17th, just south of SE Holgate and an easy walk from the SE 17th/Holgate MAX stop (Orange Line.)
West Coast Grocery Company, at SE 14th and Stark, has been in works for months, and finally soft-opened on on July 24th, 2018, with a small range of collaboration beers. In-house beers will be hitting the taps shortly. The brewpub features a full menu of moderately-priced pub food.
North Portland's fine Hop & Vine pub-restaurant closed at the end of July.
Double Mountain Brewing has opened its Portland pizza pub in SE Portland on Woodstock St. Ancestry Brewing's Portland taproom is now open in Sellwood.
There will be more to come soon!
UPDATE: The Hop & Vine is now Backyard Social at the same location.
