Coin Toss Brewing hosts arts and crafts show in its newly expanded taproom in support of local artisans
“We enthusiastically opened our new space on Nov. 13, only to have it shut down five days later due to COVID-19,” explained Coin Toss owner Tim Hohl. “Per governor’s orders we can’t use the taproom for indoor beer consumption, but since it’s still considered retail space, we can use it for other purposes at 50% capacity. We’ve talked about doing an art show with some of our super talented artist friends since before COVID hit. Now seemed like a great time to pull it together, especially since we have a beautiful new taproom space to show off.”
Rocks 4 Life by Melissa Meinz of Tigard: gemstone jewelry and lapidary
Craig Spencer of Lake Oswego: acrylic on canvas
Carol Hansen of Oregon City: oil on wood panels
Tony Wilson of West Linn: 3D mixed media
Leslie Crist of Gladstone: fiber arts
All of the artists have existing ties to Coin Toss Brewing. Meinz is the brewery’s lead bartender and brand ambassador, while Spencer has created the brewery’s branding materials, including its logo, labels, merchandise, and a mural depicting the historic Pettygrove versus Lovejoy coin toss that hangs in the new taproom. Hansen, Wilson and Crist are friends and regular customers.
Capacity at any given time will be approximately 20 people based on the current retail restrictions. Beer consumption will be allowed outside but not inside, per the current state COVID restrictions. Masks and social distancing rules are mandatory.

About Coin Toss Brewing
Coin Toss Brewing offers a variety of signature brews available by the pint, crowler, growler, or keg. The company is committed to crafting the finest beers in honor of Beervana’s illustrious history. The Coin Toss moniker is a nod to the fateful event that determined the city of Portland’s name. Although pioneer Asa Lovejoy (from Boston, Mass.) may have lost the historic coin toss to Francis Pettygrove (of Portland, Maine), the brewery would like to reach back through the years and tell him: Heads or tails? It’s beer, you win!
