Quickly becoming an icon in Cannon Beach, Public Coast Brewing is where the community gathers to enjoy cold beer and a laid-back atmosphere. Public Coast Brewery celebrates the Oregon Coast as one of the only true public coastlines in America. To honor this, the brewery offers the same welcoming spirit for any visitor that stops in with their “Beer for Everyone” motto.

This space was renovated from an old restaurant into a buzzing brewery, equipped with a 10-barrel brewing system. Our team completed the full renovations and positioned the brewery systems behind glass windows for visitors to view. We have been continued partners to Public Coast Brewery/Martin Hospitality, and even completed an addition to their brewery system in 2022.

Breakside Brewery has been a long standing client of ours. We partnered with Breakside in 2016 to complete their NW Slabtown brewery, and we have completed other design and build projects since then.

Currently, we are working with Breakside on an exciting expansion project called the Breakside Beer Garden. The location will include an outdoor bar made from a renovated shipping container, 200 outside seats, 6 food trucks, fire pits, and lawn games. The pod will be partially covered and heated for the winter and is expected to open in the fall. Well-known Portland-based food carts/restaurants are currently in consideration including Matt’s BBQ.

In addition to the ample food carts, Breakside will open an event space onsite to compliment the pods.

Ex-Novo Brewery was one of our very first brewery projects, and we believe Ex Novo is a North Portland must-see. On sunny days, you’ll witness the glass garage door open with seating inside and out.

Joel Gregory is a pioneer of sorts and do-ityourself kind of guy. Ex Novo means “from nothing,” and we built their brewery the same way—from a former lighting manufacturing building in North Portland. After finding the building, we worked to build a brewery from the ground up. The brewery made the most of the existing character-filled building, providing a new life to the property. We like to partner with dreamers, like Joel, to see their vision come to life.

The Portland location offers a full brewery and warm touches from the varieties of warm woods, interesting light fixtures, long communal wood tables, etc. The brewery has an industrial yet cozy feel that is sure to spark good conversations, and their beer is delicious too!

What is particularly unique about Ex-Novo is their mission to brew great beer and to use their business as a platform for good in our community and across the globe. Since opening their doors in 2014, the company has donated almost $100,000 back to charities, communities, and other global efforts.

Formerly a historic auto-shop called Lemon-Aid Automotive dating back to the 30s, our team helped to convert the 7,500 square foot space to a gastropub.

Equipped with a 10-barrel pub system, the converted space offers up lots of interior room for family friendly dining and a bar as well as a robust patio during warmer weather days. Throughout the process, we helped to salvage every scrap of timber found to add into the build and repurpose for tables and the subfloor rough cut beams for the bar.

This was a great adaptive re-use and design+build project that has greatly impacted the Camas community.
