Deal done: Woods, Brennan buy Hood River Bagel Co. from Brays

5 Jun

More changes. Autumn Woods, who did such a great job for the Columbia Gorge Winegrowers Association, and her husband, Barney Brennan, have completed purchase of the Hood River Bagel Co. at 13 Oak Ave. from Aaron and Shannon Bray. They’re on site, getting it ready to open under new management.

There’s interesting back story here. Woods and Brennan met when both worked at Full Sail Brewing (Brennan is still there). And she knew Aaron Bray from back then, when he worked there as well. Bray is now suds-deep into Double Mountain Brewing. Full Sail, it seems, is the incubator for small business ambition in the Hood. The power of good yeast.
