Just got this email. 🙁
It is with great sadness that we announce that Lompoc Brewing is closing up shop after 23 years in business. The closure includes the brewery, as well as 5th Quadrant and Sidebar, its two pubs on North Williams Avenue. The final day of business will be Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2019. That means this weekend is the last weekend, next Monday is the last Wing Night, and next Tuesday is the last Tightwad Tuesday; it truly is The Last Waltz with Lompoc Brewing.
Established in 1996, Lompoc Brewing is part of the old-guard of craft breweries, and has been a longtime Portland favorite.
Oaks Bottom Public House at 1621 SE Bybee Blvd. will continue to operate as its own entity, owned and run by Jerry Fechter, and it will serve and sell all remaining Lompoc beer while it lasts. For now, Fechter plans on focusing on making Oaks Bottom the best neighborhood pub it can be.
Brewmaster Bryan Keilty has moved on to another brewery. Lompoc will be offering a severance package to the remaining employees, and will try to absorb as many as it can at Oaks Bottom. Fechter will hold a final “garage sale” next Saturday, Nov. 2 at Sidebar (3901 N Williams Ave.) from Noon to 5pm to sell off vintage Lompoc bottles, merchandise, glassware, and more.
Fechter would like to thank everyone for their support over the past 23 years. To quote another Jerry, “What a long strange trip it’s been.” Cheers!
