Having planted our roots in North Portland on what was then a sparce and weathered Mississippi Street in 2003, we grew our little brew pub quickly. So did Mississippi Street. In fact the Mississippi/Williams District is one of the fastest growing areas in Portland. We like to think we had a tiny finger involved in that. As much as we loved calling Mississippi St. home, over the years, we out grew our space and it was time to take Amnesia to the next level.
This brought us to the quaint little burg of Washougal, Washington just Northeast of Portland and east of Vancouver. Here we were able to find a building that allowed us space to expand our production as well as produce some new and exciting beers that we couldn't before due to constraints at our Mississippi St. location. Washougal has warmly welcomed us into the community and we are proud to call it home.
Amesia Brewing Owner and Master Brewer Kevin King is well known and respected in the Pacific Northwest brewing community and has quite an extensive background when it comes to brewing great beer. Before opening Amnesia back in 2003, King held positions as a brewer professionally at McMenamins Queen Anne in Seattle, Pyramid Brewing of Seattle, Rogue Ales in Newport, Oregon and even Redhook Brewery.
With approximately 1,650 sq. ft. to work with, our brewery includes a state of the art 15-barrel system custom built by Metalcraft Fabrication of North Portland, as well as five 30-barrel fermenters and two 30-barrel Brite tanks, which means triple the capacity of the 7-barrel system at our previous location in Portland.
German for "Old Beer" not for it's age but for it's style. Ours is a light copper color. Light tasting but with body, it has a sweetness and slight floral notes with no distinguishable bitterness.
5.3% ABV / 35 IBU
This India Pale Ale is well balanced, generously hopped with Amarillos and Chinooks. Chinook hops bitter this beer, while copious amounts of Amarillo hops take on the aroma both in the kettle as a finishing hop and in the fermenter as a dry hop. High notes of grapefruit and orange zest with a back bone of malt to carry out the finish.
6.2% ABV / 80 IBU
Named from the use of Crystal Hops and Crystal Malts. Definately sweet with the hop biterness effectively concealed behind the malt flavor. Well balanced with a medium body and beautiful deep red color. Our maltiest beer with layers of berries, pine & hints of dried fruit.
6.0% ABV / 40 IBU
A really well balanced IPA featuring caramelly malt notes which leave you satisfied from the beginning to end. Similar to an English style ale, with a bold malt character and layers of hops.
6.2% ABV / 55 IBU
As simple as it gets. A single malt, single hop classic beer that we've brewed since our early days. Light gold in color with a clean, subtle pine aroma. A noticeable but slight bitterness which will leave you thirsty for the next sip.
5.2% ABV / 35 IBU
This is a classic porter with the twist of added Pacific Northwest Cascade hops. Dark and roasty with a mild, pleasant hop character. You'll find coffee and chocolate flavors in this rich, dark colored beer.
5.3% ABV / 40 IBU
We took our classic Slow Train and loaded it with delicious cold-brewed coffee from Torque Coffee in Vancouver and fresh vanilla beans.
5.8% ABV / 40 IBU
