We visited Laurelwood in October of 2010. The brewery was started in 2001 by Mike De Kalb and his wife Cathy as a “place where family and friends could meet in a fun and relaxed atmosphere”. We ate outside on the porch and enjoyed the nice Portland weather while we sampled some brews.
Laurelwood has five locations including two airport bars and was the “first brewery in Portland, Oregon to brew beers that met the rigorous certified organic standards of Oregon Tilth“. Their organic beers have won several awards including some World Beer Cup medals.
