Buckman is a low-hop, no-hop brewery that specializes in traditional and experimental styles of beer & cider with a botanical twist. While many craft beers are characterized by their malt and hop character, Buckman beers feature tea, chamomile, ginger, and other herbs and spices.
The Buckman name comes from the neighborhood in SE Portland where we brew beer. The neighborhood is named for Cyrus Buckman, an orchardist who farmed in the area during the turn of the century.
The small 15-barrel brewery is located inside the Green Dragon, where Buckman maintains five of sixty two taps. Buckman also shares its one-barrel nano brewsystem with the Green Dragon Brew Crew - a collective of local homebrewers. Brewers get the opportunity to brew small batch beers, which are then released on tap at the Green Dragon every Wednesday.
Tasting from 5pm-8pm, this Thursday at Uptown!
