Our Story

THE EARLY YEARS

  • PREVANA

    Our founder, Ashley Rose Salvitti, came to Portland from North Carolina after five and half years working at an east coast brew pub.

  • A PASSION

    Ashley Rose got a job at Hopworks and quickly fell in love with the beer scene in PDX, introducing friends and family to local brews.

  • A PLAN

    After running a few “tours” for her loved ones, she decided to dedicate herself to introducing visitors to our beloved craft beers.

  • AND PRESTO

    Once the idea was in place, Ashley Rose saved up, bought a bus, and began giving brewery tours to locals and tourists alike.

AND THESE DAYS

  • OUR TEAM

    Today BREWVANA employs ten incredible Portlanders, all dedicated beer nerds with a passion for sharing our city.

  • OUR FLEET

    We’ve evolved our operations from that first starter bus to a fleet of 4, each one customized and close to our hearts.

  • OUR OFFICE

    The BREWVANA team operates out of our office in Northwest Portland, but we consider all of the city our home.

  • THE FUTURE

    We’re always looking ahead and evolving with the unique and ever-growing beer industry that the Pacific Northwest offers.
