Get To Know Oregon Sinister Distilling & Deluxe Brewing


Sinister Distilling Company and Deluxe Brewing Company

Deluxe Brewing
is the dream of Albany Steamworks, LLC, otherwise known as Eric “Howie” and Jamie Howard. The couple decided long ago that a brewstillery was exactly what they needed to start. After several years of research and the help of family, friends and the community, the Howard’s are realizing their dream.

Howie started homebrewing in 2005. He went down to the local homebrew shop, Corvallis Homebrew Supply, and got all the supplies he needed for his first extract beer. He did it in the kitchen and the steam soaked the cabinets with the aroma of hops and malt. It was love at first boil. He joined the homebrew club, Heart of the Valley Homebrewers, and started networking with more homebrew enthusiasts.

Howie did more and more brewing, and moved quickly onto an all-grain system. He won several awards for his beer, and became more active in the club. He was elected President and held the position for three years. Howie went to work part-time at a small microbrewery in Corvallis to learn what it takes to own a brewery.

In 2011, we began the journey of starting our own microbrewery. Since we live in Oregon, we are surrounded by amazing breweries with beers of every flavor. We’ve decided to focus on lagers.

It’s an exciting journey for us, and one that we are doing for the love of beer.
