THINK GLOBAL, DRINK LOCAL!​

Portlanders are witnessing these pioneering distillers as they put the city and state into the national spotlight, just as Oregon winemakers defined the Willamette Valley as a world-class wine region in the late 1970’s, and the small breweries of the 1980’s put Portland at the forefront of the craft brewing movement. No longer must we turn to the handful of multi-national giants that currently dominate the liquor industry for premium spirits. We now have truly local, handcrafted, small-batch alternatives.

Frequently Asked Questions (Prior to COVID)

Where is Distillery Row? How do I get there?

Distillery Row starts in Portland’s SE Industrial District and now extends to the Northwest and Slabtown Districts across the river. Please check out our Map Page for individual distillery locations, driving directions, and hours.

Are there regular hours that the Distilleries are open to the public?

All of the Distilleries in the Row are open weekends, and some offer additional days and hours for tastings. Click here for a list of Distilleries and their hours.

Can I purchase spirits directly from the Distilleries?

YES! All of the distilleries have products available for purchase. See the individual distillery pages for products available. You are supporting local businesses when you buy directly from the source.

Do I need reservations to tour the Distilleries?

Generally, you do not need reservations to tour the distilleries. Each of the distilleries keeps its own hours and welcomes drop-in customers. However, the distilleries do request that groups of 6 or more contact each distillery at least 45 minutes before-hand to check on availability, and some require an advance appointment (please contact each distillery for policies). Wild Roots and Straightaway only have tasting rooms in Distillery Row, so they can not offer tours.

Do I have to be 21 years old or over to visit the Distilleries?

Generally speaking, yes you should be of legal drinking age to visit and tour the distilleries. Some distilleries allow minors if accompanied by a parent or guardian.

What about large groups?

PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE A GROUP OF 6 OR MORE. This is both to ensure you have a good time and verify we can accommodate your group size. Most of our tasting rooms are small which means an awesome intimate experience for you but can be tricky for larger groups. Passports are valid 1 per person (though it only takes one passport for all 2 for 1 promotions).

If there is a particular distillery you are interested in visiting, please contact them directly. Distillery Row is a volunteer-run collective of all distilleries and cannot make decisions or speak for any specific distillery.

For a more personal experience, large groups should consider scheduling a tour during off-peak times, like Sundays when foot-traffic is lower.
