OBF #35 ( Oregon Trader Brewing Company ) When Jerry and Nancy Mathern first looked at establishing a brewery in Albany they were looking at the old Sears distribution building with its desirable frontage on Water Avenue at Ferry Street west. But a nine-month wait was too long, so they bought their own building a little farther down the street. Oregon Trader Brewing Company opened at 140 Water N.E. Water Ave. on the corner of Hill St. in 1993. The two-story building has undergone a few remodels, a couple of ownerships and one name change through the years; today it is known as Calapooia Brewing Co.
