About US

Running Dogs Brewery started as a small time hobby for Jaron and Maggie Clayton. Self taught home brewer Jaron, began brewing shortly after returning home from deployment to Iraq with the Army. Always relying on his creativity he would come up with beer recipes with the sole purpose of developing something new and different. Now Jaron and Maggie (taught by Jaron) both brew and write recipes. You will find unique brews such as a Shroomy ChanterAle (brewed with Chanterelle mushrooms) and a Black and Blue Kolsch (brewed with blackberries and blueberries) on tap in their brewpub. 

    Running Dogs Brewery was named after the Claytons two dogs Gianno the Italian Greyhound and Winchester the Hungarian Vizsla. Both very active running dogs. The Logo is even a silhouette of Gianno and Winchester running together. Gianno has since past away however his legacy lives on through the brewery. Now the mascots for Running Dogs Brewery are Winchester and Annabelle both Hungarian Vizslas. 

    Running Dogs Brewery’s Mission is to make beer and create community. The brewpub is located at 291 S 1st Street in St. Helens, Oregon. The city square where scenes from the movie Twilight and Disney’s Halloweetown was filmed is within walking distance! You’ll be sure to find something to do at RDB, with over 100 board games to play, trivia and bingo nights, live music and more!
