Gigantic Brewing Company is an independent, crafty brewery located in the Southeast quadrant of the Peoples Republic of Portland. Brewer/Owners Ben Love and Van Havig are veterans of the Oregon brewing community. At Gigantic they only do two things: make the best damn IPA in Portland, Oregon and produce seasonal, exciting, flavorful beers, most of which will be brewed only once.
Gigantic Brewing has all the things necessary to make your drinking experience complete – taxidermy, a bladed weapon and a firearm! The Gigantic Taproom & Champagne lounge is located in beautiful industrial SE Portland. They have 10 taps featuring Gigantic IPA, special seasonal beers, hard cider from Cider Riot and the occasional guest tap. Their Champagne selection features four specific selections served by the bottle.
You can soak in the sun on their large 60 seat patio or relax inside the taproom at the bar, table or cushy couch. The taproom features ever changing art focus on the artists who produce their bottle labels. Gigantic offers a couple of locally produced snacks from Masala Pop and Albina City Nuts, so if you have a larger appetite you’re encouraged to bring food with you (a picnic) or go to the Taco truck across the street (awesome sopes!). Gigantic is bicycle and dog friendly, but NO kids are allowed at Gigantic – they’re are 21+.
Gigantic Brewing has a secret off-menu drink known as “The Southeast”. It’s a split of prosecco and your choice of Jarritos soda, served mixed in a beaker with marie antoinette champagne glasses.
