Cheers! 3 Kid-Friendly Portland Breweries

Portland locals know that the brewery scene is popular – there’s an entire downtown district dedicated to the brewing of beer! And if you’re in town visiting, it won’t take long for you to realize that brewing is a part of Portland’s culture. Luckily for families, there are breweries in Portland that are welcoming to children so that you don’t have to find a sitter every time you want to have a delicious pint! Check out these kid-friendly breweries in Portland where the entire family can enjoy themselves.

Laurelwood Public House and Brewery
Beer loving parents rejoice! Laurelwood was created as a place where families could go to enjoy each other’s company and a pint of local, handcrafted beer. Even better – Laurelwood’s beers are all certified organic, their food is all-natural, and they are committed to running a sustainable restaurant. Be sure to treat your kiddos to a rootbeer float for dessert!

Burnside Brewing Co.
Burnside is the hottest new brewery in Portland and is getting buzz with beer lovers and parents, alike. They offer a simple, but tasty kid’s menu at $5 a plate (Psst! The hotdog is actually a kielbasa!). Parents who love a gourmet meal with their pint will love Burnside’s sophisticated twist on traditional pub-fare. However, if you’re a family that prefers vegetarianism, Burnside’s meat-heavy menu may not be for you – stick to the delicious handcrafted beers!
