A comment posted on Brewpublic by Northwest craft beer guru and publican Jim Parker pointed us to the news that Mt. Emily Brewing of La Grande, Oregon is up for sale. A post on ProBrewer.com by brewhouse co-owner Jerry Grant states that the “9300 square foot brewpub facility, including 7 bbl brewery and full kitchen” is on the selling block. Grant adds in his post “The business has been open 15+ months and is averaging 30+ K in monthly sales. Located in NE Oregon. Would also consider leasing restaurant portion of business.”
According to Mt. Emily’s website, the building housing the brewpub at 1202 Adams Avenue was built in 1900 and originally housed the U.S. National Bank. The original vault is even still intact in the basement. Since then, the building has housed two jewelry stores, a clothing store, and a lending corporation. The building was remodeled in 2008 and converted into a brewpub. The opening of Mt. Emily Ale House in February 2009 was the culmination of years of dreaming and months of planning and work by co-owners Jerry Grant and Bob Kidney. Jerry has been home brewing since 1992 and graduated from the UC Davis Master Brewers Program in 2007. Bob has been a student of the culinary arts for several decades. Together they teamed up to follow their passions of creating original English-style ales and gourmet pizza for residents and visitors of La Grande.
Currently, Mt. Emily offers six house brews including The Big hoppy old English ale, Double IPA, Hells Canyon IPA, Oregon Blonde Ale, Heifer-weizen, and a Northwest Porter.
