Founded in January of 2013 by Jay, Christopher (aka “Amish”) and Wendy Jennings, Three Mugs Brewing Company taproom opened its doors in August of 2013, offering a humble five guest taps. By November, we boasted 20 rotating guest taps, and by late January 2014, we began brewery operations. Our first beers made their debut in the taproom during the Oregon Brewers Guild event, Zwickelmania 2014, on February 15th. Christopher has moved on to take the head brewer job at a startup brewery, The Horn Public House & Brewery, in Depoe Bay. However, a new face arrived in June 2015, Joshua Jennings—little brother—after spending 6 1/2 years in the Army. Joshua has taken on the bulk of the brewing at Three Mugs, filling the taplist with more than 20 of our own beers.
The "Three Mugs" of the logo actually represents Christopher on the left with his red beard, Jay in the middle with his stogie, and Joshua on the right...the tongue doesn't do the real one justice. Wendy designed the original logo for the family's homebrew products business, Brew Brothers. Since there is already a Brew Brothers brewpub in Reno, NV, we decided to keep the very recognizable logo but go with the new double entendre name.
We've had lots of help along the way bringing the brewery and taproom together. So, in no particular, here are those folks who helped and continue to help us make this dream come true:
Eric and Bill Koll
Tom Allender Plumbing
The Bucks, Electricians Extraordinaire
Sean & Greg Mason
Tony Dronkers (he recommended the new name)
and, of course, Diablo, Finnegan & Bruno, the "Brew Dogs" & our newest additions, Shae & Loki
Please don't hurt us if we forgot someone, just send us a note and say, "Hey, what about so-and-so?" or, "What about me?"
Thank you all!
“Come join the party!!!”
