While we began our commercial endeavors in 2016, our roots in gluten-free beer and food go back much further. JP Bierly (he/him) has been home-brewing with gluten-free ingredients since 2006, and was himself diagnosed with celiac disease in 2010. In 2012, JP engaged in an internship with Rick and Lisa Allen of Heater Allen Brewing in McMinnville in order to learn as much as possible about brewing beer commercially and running a small family brewery. As a lifelong celiac, Amelia Bierly (they/them) brings decades of gluten-free home cooking experience and a deep knowledge of the gluten-free community to Bierly Brewing.
Bierly Brewing began brewing commercially in 2016 as Oregon’s second gluten-free brewery. Our first brewery was located in the Eats & Treats Cafe in Philomath, Oregon, a dedicated gluten-free restaurant whose owners were interested in helping us get up and running. In 2018 we moved to our own facility in McMinnville where we spent three years expanding our brewing operation. We also opened our tasting room in McMinnville and began serving pub food including soft pretzels and donuts. Amelia’s experimentation and innovation in gluten-free baking and frying has become as much of a draw to the tasting room as the beer is. In 2021, we completed renovations on a building in McMinnville’s Historic Downtown and moved the brewery and tasting room into our new, larger space.
