Great Notion Brewing Opening January 1st ***
Limited beer tastes available until Grand Beer Release on March 5
Portland, Oregon, December 28, 2015 – Great Notion Brewing, located at 2204 NE Alberta #101, will officially open its doors on January 1, 2016. Formerly Mash Tun Brewpub , Great Notion is new ownership and a refresh that boasts an updated space and elevated bar menu, which Chef Ryan O’Connor describes as ‘approachable Americana’. To celebrate its opening, the brewery is welcoming families during the month of January when kids eat for just $1 every Wednesday.
Although founders Paul Reiter, James Dugan and Andy Miller took over the space earlier this year, they have been operating as Mash Tun while awaiting their TTB brewer’s license. That license came on December 9, 2015. Now brewers Miller and Dugan are hard at work, brewing barrel-aged sours and juicy IPAs, along with some experimental beers, such as their Double Stack, a breakfast stout brewed with coffee and maple syrup.
“We will slowly be adding Great Notion beers to our tap list, most likely starting with our flagship IPA,” said Reiter. “We can’t wait to share our new space and new menu with all of Portland.”
That menu comes from Chef Ryan O’Connor, formerly at local spots such as Vita Café and Helser’s on Alberta. His menu will focus on artfully crafted Americana food with influences spanning the Western Hemisphere. Patrons can order eclectic menu items such as Succotash Tacos and Philly Empanadas, or enjoy comfort food such as the Mac and Cheese with sharp English cheddar, smoked Gouda, Muenster, Roquefort, broiled plum tomatoes, and chives.
While a full lineup of Great Notion’s beers won’t be available for purchase until the Grand Beer Release on March 5 (RSVP here), the brewery is offering limited samples throughout January and February.  The brewery is also inviting its neighbors, partners, and friends to a soft opening on Thursday January 21 st .
“We recognize the amazing community we are a part of, and we want to share our passion with those who have supported us throughout this process,” said Reiter.
Great Notion Brewing is a family friendly establishment and operates daily. Guests can call the brewery
directly to book events, parties, and more. To learn more about Great Notion, visit www.greatnotionpdx.com , or follow the brewery on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
