Breakside Brewery plans for its third outpost to be ready by the summer in NW Portland.

The new location will be developed by Carin Pacific LLC and Capstone Partners. Green Cables will head the design.

“We are really excited about this new project and to be a part of what’s developing in Northwest,” says Breakside president Scott Lawrence. “This next evolution for Breakside will give us the opportunity to get even more creative and effective with our beers, and have a glittering premier location we can share with more friends in Portland.”

The Block 296 Project, which includes Breakside’s new location at the corner of Northwest 22nd Avenue and Raleigh Street, is a mixed-use project designed as an anchor development in Northwest Portland’s Slabtown District.

The brewpub will occupy about 5,000 square feet.

Breakside’s new brewpub will have an outdoor patio and mezzanine designed by local firm Green Gables and employ an estimated 75 new people. The menu will be upscale and feature locally-sourced items similar to the Woodlawn brewpub. The brewery is still under works, but will have its own brewer churning out brand new brews for the 3rd location, making it a worthy destination even if you live near either of the other two Breakside locations. (No word yet on the size of the brewhouse or who the head brewer will be). Breakside is probably the only brewery in the state with a 1/1 brewery to taproom ratio. Usually in Oregon, one brewhouse supports 2-3 pubs. The only other breweries in Oregon I can think of that have more than two breweries in the state are Deschutes and McMenamins. Also worth noting, Breakside has produced over 100 different beers each year for the last two years, and now there will be yet another location releasing even more new brews.
