McMenamins is a family-owned chain of brewpubs, breweries, music venues, historic hotels, and theater pubs in the Pacific Northwest. According to the Brewers Association, McMenamins is one of the top 50 largest craft breweries in the United States.[4]


McMenamins was founded by brothers Mike and Brian McMenamin, who grew up in northeast Portland, Oregon;[3] they trace the beginning of McMenamins to the 1974 opening of Produce Row Café.[3]

Their first theater pub was the Mission Theatre & Pub (1987).[citation needed] The company then entered the broader hospitality business starting in 1990, when they converted a 74 acre-site (that at one time served as the Multnomah County Poor Farm) into Edgefield.[citation needed] By 1997, food accounted for over half of McMenamins' total sales.[5]
