Last night we invited Matt Milletto, co owner of Water Avenue Coffee, to speak at our monthly Gear & Beer lecture series. Matt spoke about his experience in the coffee industry and gave some insight on what it's like to run a coffee business in Portland. Check out our Portland Gear coffee blend by Water Avenue here!

Despite some ups and downs this season, our beloved Portland Trail Blazers are still in the postseason hunt. Dame and CJ have been one of the best backcourts in the league and newcomer Jusuf Nurkic is living up to his nickname of the "Bosnian Beast." With all of that in mind, we are happy to announce that we will be hosting a panel discussion about the Blazers and the NBA on Monday, March 27, called "Blazers Banter."
The panelists are Casey Holdahl (Beat reporter for the Blazers), Mike Richman (Blazers beat writer for the Oregonian) and Erik Gundersen (Locked on Blazers host). Ananth Pandian (writer/editor for Clutchpoints.com, formerly of CBS Sports) will be moderating the panel.
So come on down to Portland Gear and hear some nuanced insights and analysis about the Blazers from some of the city's best analysts. This is an all ages FREE event so there should be no excuse for not coming.
Beer will be on hand but also feel free to BYOB!
For more information check out the event page.
The amount of people who showed up to celebrate was above and beyond what we ever could have expected! Our friends from Water Avenue Coffee, White Claw, Woolly, and Miss Hannah's Gourmet Popcorn were able to join us to make the party even better!
We are so thankful for every single one of our customers who share a passion for this city! The last year has been an absolute blast, cheers to so many more!
New to the Portland Gear community? Here's a little background.
Portland Gear is a brand that was designed for the city, by the city. Curated organically through the @Portland instagram page owner Marcus Harvey saw a desire from individuals to have a product that allowed people to show their Portland pride and in the winter of 2014 launched the brand with two iconic tees and a simple “P" logo. A year and half after the launch, we opened a brick and mortar store next to Providence Park in SW Portland. Since the launch, through pop up shops, the store, events and collaborations with notable athletes and brands, the brand has quickly grown and we are excited to continue to support the community and create products that are easy to wear and share your pride.
Coming up on one year since the store opening, Portland Gear will be hosting a 1 Year Anniversary Sale Party on March 4th from 11AM to 3PM at the Portland Gear clubhouse, 1919 SW Morrison Portland Oregon 97205.
We invite you to stop by for a beer, play ping pong and shop our sale with items up to 70% off! Feel free to invite your friends, family, and coworkers! We are looking forward to another year of sharing pride for our city and expanding our community presence. Find out more about the party here!
We decided we couldn't be a Portland brand without our own coffee. We teamed up with Water Avenue Coffee to create our own Portland Gear blend.
After our first cupping experience with Matt and Joe at Water Avenue Coffee we were able to narrow down some of the notes we wanted that would make our coffee taste like Portland and represent our beloved city.
This small batch blend from the roasters in SE Portland is balanced yet complex with dark chocolate notes, and hints of toasted walnut. We're proud to be part of a thriving Portland community of makers and doers and want to share the love, one cup at a time. Get yours now!
