Great Notion Brewing

Great Notion Brewing (GNB) is a brewery started by three friends and neighbors in Portland, Oregon. The Great Notion cofounders are: James Dugan, Andy Miller, and Paul Reiter. Our brewpubs are led by longtime Chef and friend Ryan O’Connor.

We will celebrate four years of brewing when we enter 2020 as it took over the former Mash Tun Brew Pub in January 2016.

Then in 2018 it began brewing on a 30-barrel brewhouse in a new 20,000 sq. ft. location in NW Portland where it sells weekly 4-pack beer releases each Saturday. Then earlier this year its new restaurant and taproom opened at this NW Portland location.

The Beers

When it comes to brewing creative craft beer, we realize the immense talent within this city. We’ve been inspired by many, in Portland and beyond. We wouldn’t be here without the brewers who came before us, who took chances, tried something new, and shared their experience.

We offer hazy, fruit-forward IPAs and “culinary-inspired” sours & stouts. GNB has won numerous Gold and Silver medals over the years, including accolades at World Beer Cup, GABF, Best of Craft Beer Awards, and Oregon Beer Awards, as well as the 2018 #1 IPA in America from Paste Magazine. GNB has two brewpub locations in Portland: GNB Alberta at 2204 Northeast Alberta Street and GNB NW at 2444 Northwest 28th Avenue. We sell our beer direct to beer drinkers from our own brewpubs in draft and cans to-go.

Our barrel program offers award-winning American sour ales aged for 9-24 months in oak barrels. A portion of our sour ales are blended with Oregon fruit like pinot noir grapes, blueberries, strawberries, and cherries. Freshly emptied Bourbon barrels age our imperial stouts on ingredients like roasted coffee, vanilla beans, chocolate, and maple syrup.

Our brewpubs serve creative Northwest food delicacies such as blackened fish sandwiches, imperial kale Caesar salads and more.

We hope you come see us soon!
