The craft beer scene in Mt. 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, a cider maker 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 Shattered Oak Brewing which 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, The Perky Pantry, open Wednesday through Sundays. Chef Melissa Downs brings a taste of Philly to the area with items like pierogis, beer cheese soup and of course the Philly cheese steak on the menu.
Shattered Oak is on the Mt. Hood Territory Tap Trail, a free mobile passport that grants discounts at 16 spots throughout the region. Download the passport and redeem it at The HiVe for half off a tasting flight. Better yet, you're already 10% 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.
