Portland's summer of new breweries continues with the debut of Breakside Brewery, located in the same NE Woodlawn neighborhood that also features Firehouse Restaurant and Good Neighbor Pizzeria. Twelve beers are currently on-tap, with Breakside's own beer hopefully to follow suit. Says co-owner Scott Lawrence: "We hope to have [our own beers, brewed by Ben Edmunds and co-owner Tony Petraglia] on tap in July... just waiting on government approval to sell them at this point. We are going to be making a variety of styles from ales to porters, but [with] a bit of a twist on each." The pub menu includes blue-cheese-infused burgers, blue-cheese-infused waffle fries, and blue-cheese-infused spinach dip (see a pattern here?), as well as deep-fried pickles (sans any blue cheese).
