The McMenamin brothers have over thirty brewpubs, distilleries, and wineries scattered throughout the metropolitan area, many in renovated historic theaters, schools, hotels and other old buildings.
EASTSIDE TOUR - Please inquire about the west-side tour.
KENNEDY SCHOOL: Sleep in class and smoke in detention: Here's a chance to live out childhood fantasies. Playing off its past, the school's original classrooms are now lodging rooms, the auditorium is a theater pub, the former little girl's bathroom is the Concordia Brewery, and the cafeteria is the Courtyard Restaurant. Guests are urged to explore the hallway art that chronicles the school's past, and perhaps enjoy a reviving soak in the artfully tiled soaking pool. Then, to cap off the experience, make your way to either the Honors Bar or Detention Bar and indulge in a beverage your old principal would have frowned on.
EDGEFIELD: Built in 1911 as the county poor farm, the great property of Edgefield was for years a place where the needy came to work in exchange for room and board. Now, people needing to escape from work come to Edgefield to relax; watch a movie at the theaterpub; unwind with a message; sample the latest releases in the winery, brewery and distillery; play a round of golf on the 18-hole Pub Course; sleep in an antique-filled guestroom; stroll through the extensive flower and vegetable gardens; or dine in the Black Rabbit Restaurant, which offers Northwestern culinary entrees that satisfy the most discriminating palates. Save time to romp through Edgefield's vast world of art and enjoy a blissful moment of leisure in the Little Red Shed.
The pint-sized RINGLERS ANNEX is a tiny window on the world of bustling West Burnside, with an open-wide main floor and mezzanine tailor-made to observe the city in motion. Drop by to enjoy an espresso at a tucked-away upstairs table or a bistro-style lunch at our year-round heated sidewalk seating. Downstairs, you'll find the very unique Cellar. Cut off from the light and hubub, the basement bar is a subterranean cave where you can hide away from the rest of Portland. The Annex is also a great stop on the Gallery Walk for Art. Come by for a glass of wine en route to your next destination.
THE WHITE EAGLE: This century+-old drinking spot is famous for its unlikely truths and wild innuendo about ghosts, record-breaking tequila consumption, ladies of the evening and Shanghai activity. Immerse yourself in the notoriety and beauty of the venerable saloon's ceramic-tiled floor and massive oak-back bar. Enjoy a hearty meal and spirits inside or out among the greenery of the beer garden. Experience another ongoing tradition as live music plays nightly. When thoughts finally do come around to sleeping, visitors can choose from 11 comfortable guest rooms on the beautifully restored second story, such as the Blue Navigation Room.
