The HiVe getting big buzz in Oregon City

Hood Territory continues to grow at a rapid pace, and no where is that more visible than Oregon City. This town of little more than 30,000 has five breweries, two cider makers and a distillery, proving that Oregon City really is at the forefront of the maker's culture. It's this culture and philosophy of cooperation, not competition between breweries, that give birth to The HiVe Taphouse

The HiVe houses two makers in one location. Batch 1 Brewing, which focuses on mead, ciders and braggot, which is a blend of beer and mead, and Shattered Oak Brewing. The latter focuses on German-inspired beers that are are easy to drink and enjoy. The taproom itself has a fun, unique style that could be described as a combination of industrial and steampunk. 

Adding to the ambiance is Oregon City's first food cart, coming to The HiVe in the next month. They'll soon add a selection of lunch and dinner options to pair with the beers, meads and cinders on hand. They even have plans to add a Sunday brunch pairing to the mix, making The HiVe the true gathering spot they have been trying to create. 

Both Batch 1 and Shattered Oak are on the Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail, a free mobile passport that grants discounts at 15 spots throughout the region. Download the passport and redeem it at both spots in The HiVe for half off a tasting flight. Better yet, you're already 20% of the way to getting your 10 redemptions for the stainless steel Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail pint glass. So it's not like you need another reason to check out The HiVe, but we thought we'd throw an extra push, just for good measure. 

Find them over at 13851 Beavercreek Rd. in Oregon City. See you out there!
