GENERAL Questions

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.

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.

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.

Passport Questions

Where can I get a Distillery Passport?

Passports will soon be available at ALL participating distilleries in the Portland area (Stone Barn Brandyworks, Wild Roots Spirits, New Deal Distillery, House Spirits, Rolling River Distillery, Aria Portland Dry Gin, Bull Run Distillery, Freeland Spirits, and Straightaway) soon. Please join our mailing list to be notified when it’s available.

What do I get with the Passport?

Aside from an awesome way to document your exploration into the Portland distilling scene, all passport holders have access to special pricing programs at all the listed distilleries. The Passport is also your ticket into “leveling up” your status with the distilling community to unlock other more exclusive offerings which vary all the time (see Level Program for more information).

Do I need a Passport to visit Distillery Row?

No, you do NOT need to have a Passport. You’re welcome to visit the distilleries and pay the individual tasting fees at each location.

Do I need to visit every distillery in one day?

Not at all. The Passport is designed to let you visit the distilleries on your schedule. You can visit six in one day and save the others for later, or you can visit one per weekend – it’s entirely up to you. Just make sure you have your passport handy, so you can visit the distilleries when you want.

How long is my Passport good for?

Our passports expire every two years, and with each new passport we will be releasing new prizes and treasure you can unlock. If you decide to unlock our various redemption Levels, your status is active as long as your passport is.

How many people does my Passport cover?

Each passport is only valid for one person (though it only takes one passport for all of the 2 for 1 promotions).
