OUR STORY

There’s a reverence that comes with being a Steeplejack. A belief that an inanimate thing can have life. A desire to work with your hands to make things better than they were before. An expectation that people deserve places to gather that are safe, sound, and welcoming. A feeling that the best things happen at the intersection of art and science. A belief that the old ways should be honored, coupled with a fearlessness that inspires doing things others shy away from. These are the same tenets that led us to start this brewery. And the same convictions we use to guide our work.

Here at Steeplejack, good beer isn’t just about what’s in the glass. It’s about where it’s served and who you share it with. Our town square just happens to be a piece of Portland’s rich history. We are at our best when we create places where people want to explore, discover, exchange ideas, and celebrate.

We provide our community with a unique gathering place where people and conversations connect.
