"Our beer loving founder and president, Dr. Tom Hammond, developed a passion for microbrewed beer during his medical school days in Seattle, Washington.
In recent years, the Medford anesthesiologist shared with friends some amazing home brews. When a dear friend passed away before launching a long-planned enterprise in 2004, Hammond decided to follow his dream and set the wheels in motion for the launching of the Southern Oregon Brewing Company.
Of course, a great brewery demands a first class head brewer and Tom found the right person in the humble genius, Anders Johansen. With tenures at some of the Northwest’s most well-known breweries, Pyramid and Deschutes, as well as a couple of start-ups, Anders not only brought a wealth of knowledge to S.O.B., he also shares Tom’s passion toward an uncompromised personal approach to brewing.
Southern Oregon Brewing Company is a locally owned craft brewery that produces the region’s premier craft beer with a total commitment to independence, integrity, community and superior customer service. When the brewery was founded in the summer of 2006, after a year of planning and research, we had three things in mind….Make Amazing Beer! Have Fun, and Take Care of Your People! The foundation of our corporation will be the production of high quality, flavorful and consistent products without compromise. We will never deviate from that mindset."
