Portland Brewing will close in February after 34 years in business


Over the years, as the city and state beer scene exploded, with producers and drinkers eager to explore rather than stick to a single brand, Portland Brewing’s relevance waned. A wave of sales didn’t help her identity either. Pyramid Brewing bought Portland in 2004, and soon after it was snatched up by Magic Hat Brewing of Vermont. In 2010, North American Breweries acquired Portland, which was later acquired by Costa Rica-based Florida Ice & Farm Co. two years later.
