New owner takes over popular Bier Stein in Eugene - The Register-Guard

The Hardys started the business in 2005 by selling 600 kinds of beers and a limited menu of sandwiches in a 2,100-square-foot space on East 11th Avenue. Sales grew as craft beer became popular in Eugene-Springfield and elsewhere. Three of the region’s most successful craft brewers, Ninkasi, Oakshire and Hop Valley, started between 2006 and 2009. Five years ago, the Hardys moved the business to the 12,000-square-foot. Potter had worked for Eugene-based Ninkasi Brewing Co. for 10 years, most recently as part of the national team managing sales on the East Coast and elsewhere. Source:
