Main AvatarI am really excited to announce that I’m taking the very first official steps toward making my homebrewing endeavors into a legit business! Kelleigh Brewing was a great place to start, but the new name I’ll be professionally brewing under is Megalith Brewing!

We’re in the process of getting our operation started, and hope to soon be cranking out the best hand-crafted small batch English-style ales in Portland! This is a project I’ve been working on for over a year now, and am finally at the point where I can begin to take some concrete steps toward realizing my goals.

The short of it is this: Megalith Brewing will be a 1-barrel brewhouse and taproom, located here in lovely Portland Oregon. Our primary focus will be on English ales – bitters/pales, reds, and stouts – but we’ll also have a rotating variety of experimental one-off recipes available each month. Being such a small brewery, we’re not going to be competing with other breweries for taps in local bars, or for shelf space at the grocery store. Our beers will be available ONLY in our own taproom.

Our location is still up in the air, though I’m looking mainly in close-in SE Portland. I’m shooting for around 1200-1400 sq.ft. with seating for about 20-25 people, in a location near enough to take-out restaurants or food carts that folks can grab some food, and bring it into the taproom for some beer. I’ve got my eye on a couple really great looking spots now, and plan to be finalizing something soon. I’ll be continuing to update here at this blog as details are worked out, and you can follow my progress in getting the space up and running. It’s going to be an eventful year, and I’m looking forward to it!
