Our Team


A novice at so many things, soccer, basketball, baseball, stand up paddle boarding, camping…you get the picture.  One thing I am not a novice at is the Pacific Northwest, we love living in the Portland area and exploring all there is to offer especially the breweries that saturate our great area.


Nathan started running when he was 14. 25+ years later, he’s still going. When he’s not running, he enjoys exploring the city with his son, reading books with his daughters, finding new restaurants with his wife, traveling, or backpacking. He loves lite beer, dark chocolate, and strong coffee.

Support the Community you Love!

Giving back to our community and supporting great causes is part of who we are. 10% of our proceeds help support these non-profit organizations.

Oregon Brewshed Alliance

The Oregon Brewshed® Alliance is a coalition of Oregon brewers, brewing community partners, and conservationists who understand the value of clean water and protected forest watersheds. Beer is over 90% water after all, and that water is a product of the land that it flows through. Alliance members work together to educate the craft beer drinking community about protected watersheds and their essential role in Oregon’s celebrated craft brewing industry.


Dollar For Portland

Dollar For Portland helps local families pay overwhelming medical expenses with the power of a community that gives just $1 a month. 100% of every dollar goes directly to families in need. Sign up today


Life Vest Inside

Life Vest Inside is a 5013 non-profit grassroots organization based in New York City whose mission is to inspire, empower and educate people of all backgrounds to lead a life of kindness. We’re partnering with the local chapter in Vancouver, WA.



We’re so thankful to be joined by some amazing local companies!

Inspiring Adventure with Ross Putnam from Base Camp Brewing (podcast)

Register now and join us for a remarkable run through the Buckman and Laurelhurst neighborhoods of Portland.

On this episode of the podcast, Ross and I dive into a bit of Base Camp’s history, as well as his peculiar path to co-found the brewery in 2012. During our chat, we tasted four Base Camp beers. Ross also shares what he views the true meaning of Base Camp to be; the causes they care about, what that looks like in their business, and how all of that informs the beer they make and the vibe their going for in the taproom.
