At Threshold Brewing & Blending, we focus on:


Our beers are balanced, intriguing and bursting with flavor and aroma. We're not shy when it comes to experimenting with techniques and ingredients.


We also get excited about hops and source them locally whenever possible to maintain the highest quality product.


And while we love our fresh beers, we also can't resist a little wood. We have a lively barrel program that yields not only the dark and strong variety but the tart and funky as well.

Our taproom menu has expanded!

We are proud to now offer house-made traditional Polish Zapiekanka in addition to our small but satisfying bar menu.

Zapiekanka (Zap-eeye-KAHN-ka) begins with an open-faced baguette layered with richly spiced mushrooms and oozy Polish Morski cheese. It’s toasted to perfection and finished with a generous drizzle of our house-made Polish-style ketchup and sprinkle of smoked paprika. 

Go for The Classic or top with Polish sausage and our house-brined cucumbers.

Why Zapiekanka? Threshold Founder/Brewer Jarek was born and raised in Poland and has a passion for introducing authentic Polish cuisine to his Portland community.

We look forward to seeing you at the taproom soon!

Threshold Brewing & Blending opened in January 2019 in the beer-centric neighborhood of Montavilla. Owned and operated by wife/husband duo Sara and Jarek Szymanski, Threshold is a passion-project for the couple. 

Our aim at Threshold is to continue what we've been doing since we first fell in love with brewing: share our craft with others, brew the beers we love, push boundaries and connect with our town and neighborhood. Threshold is about a shared community, a place to bring your family, a place to try good things and meet good people.

Jarek (pronounced YAR-ek) grew up in Wloclawek, Poland and immigrated to Portland in 2003 after falling in love with the Pacific Northwest. He's a perfectionist by nature and his approach to brewing is driven by a desire to produce an exceptional product to share with his city, his community, his family and his friends.

Sara, a Portland-area local, shares Jarek's passion for great beer and great hospitality. She handles the brewery's communications and logistics, working hand-in-hand with Jarek to share their love of all things craft.
