We’re proud to be the Portland’s largest family-owned and operated brewery. Our pubs are urban HUBs for our neighbors and community. We are committed to investing in our local community and economy through our Community Tap Program, we sponsor numerous bike-and-walk programs, support local schools, and provide employees with volunteer opportunities in the neighborhood. We source local ingredients to enrich the local economy and reduce our carbon footprint. And we have plenty of bike parking everywhere, because we believe the best way to get around the neighborhood is on two wheels.
EXPANDING OUR DEFINITION OF SUSTAINABILITY
Our Community Tap program helps keep our community healthy and vibrant—expanding what it means to model sustainability. We partner with like-minded, local, nonprofit organizations that we admire and respect by donating 1% of all pint sale proceeds to that month’s featured organization. Learn more about our Community Tap program here.
BRING THE KIDS
Kids are a welcome addition to our restaurants. In fact, we’ve consistently been ranked one of the best restaurants to dine with your kids in Portland, and are known across the beer industry for our family friendly spaces. We have delicious food items for kids, along with plenty of toys and books in our play areas to keep even the most active young minds engaged while you enjoy a fresh, organic beer.
Thinker Toys proudly sponsors the kid’s play area at Hopworks Urban Brewery and SpielWerk Toys proudly sponsors the kid’s play area at Hopworks BikeBar.

Good Beer Does Good.
In 2016 we became members of 1% For The Planet. That means we send 1% of our beer sale proceeds to environmental organizations in our region. We support local non-profits that focus on forests, bikes, and water. Learn more here.
Keep on Riding
Bicycles are a permanent fixture in the everyday lives of Portlanders. We may be biased but we’re huge fans of bicycles – they make excellent pedal-powered transportation and they are a ton of fun. We are a Certified Bike Friendly Business, we have decorated our pubs with bikes, and we have extensive bike parking at all our locations. One of our brewpubs, BikeBar, can even receive energy from the pedal bikes in the front of the restaurant.
It’s true, we love bikes! That’s why we support many of our favorite Portland bike events and businesses and non-profits:
We are grateful to support local and hard working organizations through our donation process of discounted beer to qualifying organizations. Interested?
