It was almost two years ago when I first shared the news about a new brewpub in Southeast Portland that was taking bike-friendly to a new level. Now, thanks to the Oregonian’s bike-and-beer loving reporter John Foyston, I learned this morning that Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) is all set to open next Tuesday.

Foyston has covered developments of brewmaster Christian Ettinger’s exciting project since day one and in today’s paper he shares more details and photos of what just might be the most bike, and earth-friendly pub in Portland.
Here’s a description of the brew-pub by Foyston:
“As befits the acronym HUB, the place caters to Portland’s love of two-wheeled transport…a bicycle repair stand by the front door and meeting space for clubs and community groups. You can buy a new bicycle inner tube at the bar…”
The centerpiece of the pub’s bikey theme is a light fixture/sculpture made out of 44 old bike frames that hangs over the bar.
Get more details on the bike frame sculpture and lots of other cool features of this new brewpub on the Hopworks Urban Brewery blog.
