Welcome to another installment of the Oregon Brewery Running Series Podcast; Inspiring Oregonians to Be Active, Have Fun, and Give Back. We host family-friendly, 5K fun runs that start and end at some of Oregon’s best breweries.

REGISTER FOR OUR NEXT RUN HERE!

Today on the podcast, we chat with Sara Szymanski co-owner and communications and logistics expert at Threshold Brewing & Blending. We have the privlidege of running/walking at Threshold on Saturday, November 7! Join us in the Montavilla neighborhood of SE Portland for a trip up and down Mt Tabor.

In this conversation, we get to learn a bit about how Threshold came to be and some of the motivation behind the brewery. We also talk about adaptations they’re making to survive during the pandemic, and how their community has rallied to help support them. Sara also shares a bit about what makes their beer unique, their space special, and what you should try when you visit.

About Threshold Brewing & Blending

Threshold Brewing & Blending opened in January 2019 in the east Tabor neighborhood of Montavilla. Owned and operated by husband-wife duo and long-time Montavillains Jarek and Sara Szymanski, Threshold is a passion-project and first foray into commercial brewing for the couple.

 

​Jarek, pronounced “Yar-ek”, comes from a background in software engineering and 10 years’ experience as a home brewer. He 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 see their dream succeed.

 Our aim at Threshold is to continue what we’ve been doing since we first fell in love with beer: 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 a place to meet good people.
