Ten years ago, Jamie and Eric Howard founded Deluxe Brewing and Sinister Distilling in Albany, Oregon. The family-owned business became Albany’s first brewstillery, a 15-barrel production brewery and distillery located along the Willamette River in the historic Borden Building along NE Water Avenue.
