Public House Gathering Place in Springfield, Oregon

Public House Bldg

As you may have seen from some of my posts on my blog here, as well as on other social media sites, Gene and I enjoy trying different craft breweries when we travel. One such place we really enjoyed is called the Oregon Public House in Springfield, Oregon. Not only did we enjoy some local brew, but the place is quite unique in itself. A little bit more about that in a bit. This place was one of the closest places to the Airbnb we were staying at during our visit in September of 2021. As it was the closest, we decided to check it out the first night we were there. We enjoyed it so much that we went back several times while in the area.

Pilsner Urquell Brewery – Our Unique Brewery Tour

Pilsner Urquell - BuildingWe had an amazing time in the Czech Republic while in Europe in May of 2018.  For two weeks we ran around Austria, Germany as well as the Czech Republic. However, we really enjoyed our time in Prague (Praha) and I loved seeing the Charles Bridge and the Czechoslovak Hussite Church of Our Lady in Old Town. Sadly we were only there a couple of days and headed south to Germany. However, on our way south we made a detour and visited the city of Pilsner (Pilsen) to tour the Pilsner Urquell Brewery.

We have been on quite a few brewery tours, but this one was quite unique. Above is a Youtube video I made about our tour. Hope you enjoy some pictures that are not here in the post.

Odell Brewery FrontLast year my husband Gene, my niece Cassidy and I spent part of my birthday afternoon touring the beautiful Odell Brewing Company facility in Fort Collins.  We had never been there so it was fun checking out a new brewery basically in our own backyard. Not only did we have a good time exploring their amazing building and store, we also learned that the company has been independent since 1989 and is 100% employee-owned. I found that very interesting. They want their employees invested, and it looks like it works well for everybody. I wish a lot more companies followed this practice. I think there would be a lot more pride in what they do and feel more accomplished at the end of the day.
