“Flavorful and Unique Offerings”

This second-story brewery is home to two seasoned and creative brewers - Tony Balzola and Alex McGaw - who, in addition to the usual company standards and seasonals, work to have a constant rotation of flavorful and unique offerings for patrons of Ringlers and the Ballroom, as well as three outlying pubs. House favorites include Pilsner Kristell, a beautiful crystal clear bohemian-style pilsner and the Crystal IPA. 

The brewers also make frequent use of the barrels made available by the Edgefield Distillery, and these fabulous barrel-aged beverages are not to be missed.The brewery itself is housed in what originally was the Crystal Ballroom's dance rehearsal studio. Bits of the legendary ballroom's history are depicted on the brew and fermentation tanks, including a stern portrait of Lola Baldwin, the conservative policewoman who stayed busy during the Jazz Age keeping booze and other vices out of this place. One of McMenamins' pioneer brews — Crystal Ale — was named honoring the ballroom before the property was acquired.  The recipe was refined in 1997 to coincide with McMenamins reopening of the ballroom.

I've never been to a show here but i've been to several of their 80's dance nights. The floor is so bouncy, it feels like a mini trampoline! Unlike any other venue i've ever been to.

I went to see The Flaming Lips play here in 2000. I had never been inside for a show, the first thing you will notice are the strange floating wood floors that move beneath your feet. The next thing you will notice is the beautiful fixtures. In fact, they did not throw the balls around like they do at most of their shows because they didn't want to damage the lights!
