The following is an official press release:
(Portland, OR) – The first dedicated gluten-free brewery and gastropub in the United States has finally chosen its second name. “Ground Breaker came up early, and was actually the first name that we all liked,” says Ground Breaker’s head of R&D, James Neumeister, “but, like many names, it seemed to have too many potential conflicts, so we set it aside. As we continued to brainstorm, nothing else seemed to fit, and eventually we decided to revisit Ground Breaker and worked to eliminate those conflicts.”
We were thrilled by the suggestions from our from our fans when we announced that we were being forced to abandon our original name. Ground Breaker was one idea shared with us through a Facebook post asking for suggestions. We will reward the fan that shared that idea with a Ground Breaker shirt, pint glass, and a few other treats as they become available. The renaming process began earlier this week and should be completed within a few months.
