Property description

Inn Beervana is a B&B, bed and beer, for visitors coming to explore Portland’s beer culture and that of the greater Pacific Northwest. The loft apartment is detached and offers complete comfort and privacy in a relaxing, central location. It sleeps four comfortably and includes a full kitchen. Upon checking in, guests will find a mixed six-pack of Oregon craft beer in the fridge (or a bottle of local wine or cider if preferred. Great wine tasting is within an hour's drive).

The owners, Brian & Kimberley, were living overseas for over a year, hence the lack of reviews since late 2013. We had talked about doing something like this for years. We’ve beer tripped throughout the entire country. Cheap motels or expensive hotels have a way of marring otherwise great beercations. By converting our detached apartment into a hop-artment, we can provide an ideal home base for people looking to discover what makes Portland ‘Beervana.’

Inn Beervana is located in the Hawthorne District of Southeast Portland (neighboring areas include Sunnyside, Buckman, Belmont, Clinton, Mt. Tabor), walking distance from many of the destinations beer lovers have high atop their bucket lists such as the world-famous Horse Brass Pub, Belmont Station bottle shop and the adjoining Biercafe, as well as myriad tap houses, restaurants, quintessential food cart pods, and parks. The McMenamin Bros. brewpub and theater that anchors the neighborhood, the Bagdad Café, is two blocks away. Downtown is only 15-20 minutes away by bus or bike with two bus lines almost out the front door.

Half Pint has a degree in art and design and hand painted the giant hop mural adorning the apartment’s entire western wall. The room features a luxurious queen bed with another queen mattress above in the loft. Plenty of lounging space, TV/DVD/VCR, and free wi-fi round out the quarters. Guests enter through a private garden area that they are free to enjoy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Brian and Kimberley have friends in the beer world across the country and are excited to welcome those on a "beercation" to one of the US's great Meccas of craft brewing. Brian is the author of "Oregon Breweries," a comprehensive guidebook and "Red, White, and Brew: An American Beer Odyssey" as well as contributor to several beer magazines and blogs. Ask to try some homebrew! Kimberley is known in beer circles as "Half Pint" and is the artistic--and tidy--half. Both take great pride in extending Northwest hospitality to like-minded travelers.

Why the Owner Chose Hawthorne:
We'd looked into starting a "B&B" before but this detached apartment screamed out for launching Inn Beervana. There are brewpubs in every corner of this great city--almost 60 in all--but we feel that the Southeast makes for the best home base when exploring Beervana specifically and Portland in general. It's close to the airport, services, downtown, the gorgeous Columbia River Gorge for hiking, etc.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Guests are welcomed with a mixed 6 pack of Oregon beer (or a bottle of Oregon wine or cider if preferred). The decor is inviting and offers just the right amount of of breweriana to get visitors excited about exploring. Autographed copies of OREGON BREWERIES or RED, WHITE, & BREW are available and reading material featuring a selection of local maps and interests are made available. Look for unique experiences and activities to be offered soon. Perhaps a personal brewery tour can be arranged.
