Come on Over!

Portland, Oregon has the largest number of breweries in the world - 56 and growing! Gateway Brewing, founded by beer industry veterans Joel and Karen Sheley, the newest nanobrewery in town aims to showcase high quality brews from Portland's East side.

At Gateway Brewing our beer reflects that celebrate-the-every-day notion and we invite you to come on over.


Gateway on Tap

Get in touch and get Gateway on tap! We are currently self-distributing 1/6 (5.1 gal) and 50 liter (13.2 gal) kegs from our brewery to a very select group of local retailers. Call Joel at 503.975.9103 or email to schedule an appointment.

Based in Portland's Gateway district, Gateway Brewing is crafted by locals for locals.

Gateway Brewing opened in March 2015 and is located in NE Portland. Who are we exactly? Technically, we’re a nanobrewery with a focused selection of beer styles…which means we brew craft beer in small batches.
