Southern Oregon Brewing Company is an 11,000-square-foot craft brewery located in Medford, Oregon. We create our beers with a state-of-the-art 20-barrel, four-vessel stainless-steel brewing system manufactured in Oregon. With our current brewhouse and cellar, we have the ability to produce more than 7000 barrels/year.
Quality control is paramount to the consistent production of the fine handcrafted beers in our brewery. Our onsite microbiology laboratory allows us to analyze the quality, purity, and consistency of our products. Our lab also allows us to maintain a pure and healthy yeast library, which helps us reliably make the beers you have grown to love the same way each time.
Southern Oregon Brewing Company is committed to being environmentally conscious. We plan to implement more initiatives as our finances allow. Here’s what we do now:
- Donate of all our solid production waste (spent grains, yeast, and trub) to local livestock and agricultural farmers.
- Minimize our impact on the Rogue Valley’s water treatment system by being conscious of the pH and biological activity of our liquid wastes.
- Recapture thermal energy with our heat exchanger system, reducing our need for natural gas and electricity.
- Hope to install solar panels to go “off the grid” and maybe return some energy to the system
