With a diverse assortment of pubs, lodging, breweries, distilleries, a roastery, movie theaters, spas and event spaces throughout Oregon and Washington, no two McMenamins are the same. Since its founding by brothers Mike and Brian McMenamin, the company − famous for resurrecting and transforming alluring old buildings − has grown from one pub in Portland, Ore., to 56 locations in the Pacific Northwest. All McMenamins properties provide a casual, relaxed atmosphere where people of all ages are welcome, and regulars are common. Its focus on creative community gathering spots, spectacular concert venues, eclectic art, eats and brews, vintage fixtures, herb and vegetable gardens, historic buildings and community history draw loyal fans and admirers from far and wide. Independently owned, McMenamins continues its tradition of reimagining historic properties and artistically restoring locations to spotlight local heritage and bring people together.
The McMenamins remain exceptionally involved in the business they started many decades ago, and they plan to remain so. The next generation of the McMenamin family is equally involved and committed as the company continues to expand. The business will continue to be led by members of the family now and in the future.
With a “if we can make it, let’s do it” philosophy, McMenamins produces beer, wine, spirits, roasted coffee, ice cream, produce, herbs, baked breads and pastries for use in the restaurants and pubs.
