By Wendy Morley

Oregon's Deschutes Brewery has become well known around the countrySSP America, a division of SSP Group, has just been awarded two new contracts to bring local craft brewers Deschutes Brewery and Hopworks Urban Brewery to Portland International Airport.

The award-winning Oregon craft beer pioneer Deschutes Brewery will open on Concourse D and the Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB), Portland’s first eco-brewpub, will join Concourse E.

“With more than 260 craft breweries throughout the state and 19 million annual brewery visitors, the craft beer industry is a cornerstone of the Pacific Northwest experience and a tradition embraced by locals and tourists alike,” said Chris Czarnecki, Port of Portland director of PDX terminal business and properties. “For that reason, it’s our pleasure to welcome two of Oregon’s most celebrated breweries to the food and beverage program at PDX, where they will further the local presence so widely appreciated by our passengers.”

Family and employee owned since 1988, Deschutes Brewery has become the cornerstone of Central Oregon’s flourishing craft brew culture. The brewery is renowned for its small batch releases each season. Deschutes pub in Portland tis known for its scratch kitchen led by Executive Chef Jill Ramseier, and coming in 2021, a new east coast brewery will open in Roanoke, Virginia. Deschutes beers are now available in 29 states and Washington, D.C.

The HUB brewpub is a well known urban beer experience soon available at Portland International

Founded in 2007 by Brewmaster Christian Ettinger, HUB is the definitive modern day Portland brewpub with a robust and hearty menu. Ecologically sound, the brewery uses organic malts and a combination of locally sourced, organic, and Salmon-Safe hops. HUB is a family-owned and operated business, the first Certified B Corporation brewery in the Pacific Northwest, and donates 1% of their beer sales to environmental causes.

“We fell in love with our planet while traveling the world in search of great beer,” said HUB brewmaster and founder, Christian Ettinger. “As champions of sustainability, we couldn’t be more honored to become beer ambassadors for the best brewing city on earth in the best airport in the country. We are so excited to welcome travelers to Portland with a cold pint of organic beer in our new, beautifully designed pub!”

SSP America’s Chief Executive Officer Michael Svagdis commented: “At SSP America we believe restaurants are at the heart of every community’s story, and airports play a leading role in telling that story. Bringing these two extraordinary breweries to PDX is a wonderful example of our passion for community anchored dining at the airport.”
