Find unique gifts for craft beer lovers in our store. All our products are made with love in Portland, Oregon.
Eyeluvbeer evolved from a simple sticker concept that would not leave my mind, and of course from my love of beer, especially ones brewed in the great state of Oregon. After being told from my marketing genius and fiancée, Wendy “just do it” several times, I finally decided to get the ball rolling around May of 2010.
I asked my friend Megan, who by the way is also a genius, if she would be willing to work up the sticker design with her superior Adobe skills. She did not hesitate to tackle the task and provided excellent suggestions along the way.
My first product, the sticker, was eventually conceived and sent off to print. My long time child hood friend, mentor, artist and computer wizard, David offered to lend his creative mind to help develop the initial web site. I was also blessed and surprised to get a spot at the July, 2010 Oregon Brewers Festival.
Eyeluvbeer has been taking baby steps since then. We have slowly expanded our product line and now maintain a beer blog that we thoroughly enjoy writing. Most importantly, we are having fun. We hope you enjoy Eyeluvbeer as much as we do.

Will you fill your growler at Fred Meyer? — Posted on February 7, 2014
"Maybe @eyeluvbeer will actually go grocery shopping with me. @FredMeyerInc Hollywood rocks!"

I will say I was quite impressed with the picture of the growler (64oz.)/growlette (32oz) fill station, and I agree with the above statement that the Hollywood store rocks although I’ve only been in about a dozen times. Now that you have growler/growlette fills I may make a 13th appearance at some point, but I’m more likely to hit up my local bottle shop or brewery for a fill. You see, I was born with a genetic predisposition to shopping; I hate it. Fred Meyer, you could be giving away free craft beer to the masses, but that wouldn’t lure me in. Your parking lot, the size of your store and the isles typically filled with dazed, zombie-like shoppers with no apparent mission all initiate my anxiety and test my already limited patience. If you’re unlike me, and love shopping at a ~150,000 sq.ft. store, I highly recommend making a pit stop on your one-stop shopping adventure for a 32 or 64 ounce fill. The 16 taps of beer and cider at the Hollywood Fred Meyer look amazing. You can also find fill stations at their Burlingame and Hawthorne locations. Congratulations guys on the new addition! The late, great Fred G. Meyer would be proud!
