Living Haüs Beer Company Launches in Portland, OR
(Portland, OR) — Industry veterans Conrad Andrus and Mat Sandoval, formerly of Modern Times Beer and Culmination Brewing in Portland, announce the forthcoming launch of Living Haüs Beer Company, which will open in the industrial Central Eastside neighborhood in summer 2022. Living Haüs will take over the former Modern Times facility at the intersection of Belmont and 7th Ave as a lager-centric taproom and brewery. The revitalized space will welcome guests into a lush, green environment reﬂecting the natural world outside the brewery walls, with a thoughtful roster of high-quality beers alongside a curated list of natural wine and spirits.
“Our goal has always been to create a brand with the highest quality beer that is approachable, creative, and sessionable. I believe we as a group are extremely talented across all styles, but a lot of our focus will converge on classic, clean, and refreshing lager beer. We aim to be your favorite brewer’s favorite brewery. We aspire to be at the cutting edge of the industry and also embrace the tradition that brought us here,” explains Andrus.
Living Haüs’ parent company, Sin Marca Beverage, will use a portion of the expansive existing brewery to oﬀer ﬁrst-rate contract brewing services. Under the direction of Contract Brewing Director Gavin Lord, formerly of pFriem Family Brewers, Sin Marca aims to build collaborative long-term relationships within the beer industry and beyond.
“From our beers to our tasting room, Living Haüs Beer Co. will highlight all things living, breathing, and ever evolving,” says Sandoval. “This space has so much potential, and with some creative inclusions of the natural elements of light, earth, air, and water, we have designed an area that stands up to the quality and artistry of our beers. Within our approach to the design of our beers and our space, you will ﬁnd elegance mixed in with a hint of danger: high-quality beer, an airy and green environment, and thrash metal.”
Sandoval adds: “While our in-house brand will showcase the thoughtful, yet fun-loving approach Conrad and I have to beer, the contract brewing portion of the business will let us prove our technical brewing strengths in a completely diﬀerent way. With Gavin at the helm of this endeavor, I have all the conﬁdence in the world that our clients and their fans will be impressed with the quality and consistency of their products. We can’t wait to raise a glass with Portland.”
The trio will share more details, as well as an early July opening date, in the months to come.
