Grimm Dragon Release

Portland artist and icon, Ray Grimm, helped shape what is now considered the laidback hip Portland culture. In a tribute to Ray and the artisan renaissance of Portland he influenced, Grimm Dragon, a unique American Barleywine, created in the spring of 2018 by Green Dragon Brewers will be released in mid March. Grimm Dragon was made with hops from the home garden of Ray’s son, Carl. In addition to creating the dragon in the Weather Machine in Pioneer Courthouse Square, Ray inspired an ever expanding network of artists and makers through decades of teaching at Portland State University and living a life of creative adventure.


THE RAY GRIMM LEGACY PROJECT aims to honor the life, work, influence, and legacy of Raymond Grimm, a pioneer in the vibrant crafts movement in the Pacific Northwest through the second half of the twentieth century. The project was made possible in part by a grant from THE FORD FAMILY FOUNDATION. The Foundation was established in 1957 by Kenneth W. and Hallie E. Ford. Based in Roseburg, Oregon. Its mission is “promoting successful citizens and vital rural communities” in Oregon and Siskiyou County, California. Visit the Foundation’s website at
