With the closing of Amnesia Brewing's N Mississippi location in January of 2014, Rob Lutz has purchased the setup and is opening StormBreaker Brewing in it's place. Formerly the Amnesia brewer at the location, he is well positioned to get this new venture going in the right direction. look for the new North Portland brewpub to open in February 2014 with a lineup of regular and seasonal ales. The initial plan is to have a selection of small plates put together by a local caterer and finished on site. The patio will remain and minor remodeling will be completed inside for the launch. I look forward to checking out the new feel and flavors. More details to come as they become available.

Due to being an established restaurant Fire On The Mountain Brewing is possibly one of the most overlooked new breweries in town. They have been brewing for a couple of months now, and I am really looking forward to trying some of the new beer. I love their food and the beer should be a great complement to the menu.
[Update 4-5-2012:] I visited FOTM on Freemont with a few of my buddies last night. The wings were excellent, and The Ella sandwich was awesome. I was a bit disappointed that my first two choices for beer, the rye, and the Lefty Lager, were sold out. I did have a pint of the IPA, as well as a pint of the Amber, and both were great. My buddy Jay had a stout, which I tasted, and it was also very good.
We were there for a bet payoff dinner, so I wasn't able to give proper attention to putting together all the info for a review. I was able to speak with the manager, Nathaniel, and he gave us a peek in the brewery for some photos. He indicated that they are working to expand the brewery into the space next door to increase the brew capacity. Hopefully I'll be able to stop in with Kim in the near future and give it the full look through and a full beer sampler tasting.
