Breakside Brewery is set to open a new Milwaukie location.

The brewer will move into a spot at 5821 S.E. International Way, behind Bob’s Red Mill.

Breakside’s Milwaukie tasting room will feature 24 taps. The company will open the site on Jan. 30.

Breakside’s move marks an expansion from its Northeast Dekum Street spot in Portland. The company hopes to boost its production to 5,000 barrels within the next year. Breakside will also install a packaging line at its new spot.

The Dekum site will “continue to serve as a laboratory of sorts, granting even more freedom for the creative team at the brewery to develop their unique brand of accessible and avant-garde beers while producing a consistent product at high volume at the larger facility,” according to a Breakside release.

“This larger brewery allows us to increase our beer production, but also allows us to provide a unique Breakside beer experience for visitors,” added Scott Lawrence, Breakside’s owner, in a release. “Folks can come in, taste up to 24 varieties of our beers as well as beers from our friends, speak with brew masters and then take a tour of our facility.”
