Mutantis Is Now Serving Gluten-Free Stouts in Northeast Portland
At the end of last year, West Coast beer vet Jason Yerger — formerly of Ghostfish in Seattle— opened a small bottle shop specializing in gluten-free beers. It offered a variety of options from Oregon’s gluten-free breweries, like Bierly Brewing, Evasion Brewing, Ground Breaker Brewing, and Moonshrimp. By the beginning of this year, however, Yerger was brewing his own gluten-free beer, and now, customers can drink Mutantis’s own sours, stouts, and IPAs on its new patio. To avoid gluten, Yerger brews his beers with things like malted rice, buckwheat, and millet, as well as quinoa and a gluten-free dry yeast. For the Black Lime Saison, for instance, Yerger combines malted millet, malted buckwheat, malted rice, and quinoa with black limes, peppercorns, and pomelo. The online store, which also includes things like merch and crowlers of other gluten-free beers, allows customers to pick up drinks to take home. The brewery and taproom shares a building with Tamale Boy, and has set out a collection of colorful, socially distanced chairs for drinking on its small patio. Mutantis is located at 6719 NE 18th Avenue. [NSB]
