We at Bierly Brewing have personally benefited from the theft of land from the peoples that have been here for thousands of years. Rights were removed from those peoples who had cared for the land on January 22, 1855 with Cession 352. The land that the brewery rests on was stolen from these peoples. The false narrative of open land for farming and settling drew the Bierlys, the Grabhorns, and numerous other families to the area of what became the state of Oregon while the rightful inhabitants of the land were pushed toward the coast and land reserved for them. We acknowledge these facts and pledge to work to center voices of indigenous people of Turtle Island.
