Doctor Bird Elixirs: A Portland Owned & Operated Herbal Microbrewery

Hello friends!  Welcome to Doctor Bird Elixirs, a uniquely Portland non-alcoholic brewing company.   I’m Dr. Kate, co-owner and Director of Recipe Development here at DBE.  Doctor Bird is comprised of 3 owners:  Dani Lockwood, Naturopathic Doctor & Licensed Acupuncturist.  Rich Daume, Brewer and really, master of all things beverage.  And me, Kate Sydney, Naturopathic Doctor, Licensed Acupuncturist/Herbalist.  Between Dani and myself, we have approximately 10+ years of study in both Western & Eastern herbalism and Rich has been microbrewing for 6 years.  Four years ago, Dr. Dani & I set out on a mission to introduce Portland, Oregon’s modern palate to a world of flavors to which it is not typically accustomed.  And slowly but surely the city is embracing DBE’s unique taste with open arms.
