Bill & Kim McAuliffe
Bill has always wanted to have a family business after retiring from the corporate world. Kim was excited to be part of a wider community since our immediate families are back in Michigan where we were raised. Three Mermaids has been a great success for both. Our goal has been to support the southwest Portland area with a friendly craft beer/cider/wine and food establishment as an alternative to the hassle of going to downtown Portland. Please join us!
William grew up in the Portland Metro area with his parents and three sisters. He fell in love with craft beer when he attended the University of Oregon. Ninkasi brewing and Oakshire brewing still keep a special place in his heart.
After graduating with a degree in Business and Finance, William started working in the restaurant industry. An ice cream parlor, a pizza place and finally a pub with a great craft beer selection. All the while William was trying thousands of different beers while avidly homebrewing. He learned the restaurant industry and beer from the inside out!
Austin began his Three Mermaids journey as a customer where discovered something amazing. When he started working with the McAuliffe family, he realized the pub is so much more to people then just a place to drink. Seeing this he really wanted to bring fresher and better ingredients into Three Mermaids and start serving more substantial meals. Three Mermaids is not like other tap houses, and Austin’s goal is to prove it everyday with creative, high quality food selections and friendly service.
