Eastern Oregon Breweries

Good people drink good beer! When you’re looking for an Eastern Oregon brewery in Lewis and Clark country, you’ll be delighted with the Oregon craft beers you find. Eastern Oregon beer lovers know where to go to sip great suds on the Oregon Trail. From ale houses in John Day, Hermiston, Pendleton and Baker City, all the way to Joseph and Ontario, the breweries in the region tap some darn good Oregon craft beer. What better way to enjoy a satisfying brew in Oregon’s Old West than relaxing with a view of the snowcapped Wallowa Peaks, or visiting one of Oregon’s Seven Wonders? Eastern Oregon is home to two of these wonders – the John Day Fossil Beds and the Painted Hills, and after a day of roaming, a cold one is near.

Award-winning beers can be found in any region of the state. Eastern Oregon’s tap houses, breweries and brew pubs offer a taste of the old dusty trail, with a great brew to wash it down. Ask your local cowboy or rancher for a recommendation of their favorite beer. After a day at the Pendleton rodeo, grab a pint of IPA or brown ale at one of Pendleton’s breweries or brewpubs, and get some grub. If a good old-fashioned steak dinner is in order, you’ll find the best Oregon beef around. Soak up the sun along the John Day River or Snake River with a growler of the town’s best ale, or bring along a six pack of your favorite microbrew as you conquer the trails of Hells Canyon or the Blue Mountains for a well-deserved thirst-quencher after a cycle through the Wallowas.

Wherever you find yourself in eastern Oregon, you’ll surely be able to find your hoppy place!


Eastern Oregon includes breweries in Baker City, Boardman, Burns, Enterprise, Hermiston, John Day, Lostine, Milton Freewater, Ontario and Pendleton.
