Our goal is simple: Make better beer that’s inspired by our outdoor lifestyle. A good beer should be on hand not only at the brass rail of the local tavern, but also in board bags, backpacks, fishing vests, and coolers at the tailgate. We do our part to help protect the world in which we love to play by imbibing responsibly, supporting environmental non-profits, recapturing water from the brewing process, sourcing renewable energy, repurposing spent grain into animal feed, and building energy-efficient breweries. Please do yours. See you on the trail.
Local Brews: A Guide To Breweries Around The State
20 Corners Brewing
Bale Breaker Brewing Co.
Bale Breaker Brewing Company brews handcrafted ales that showcase the world-class hops grown in the heart the Yakima Valley. Hops are in the family’s DNA: the great-grandparents of sibling-owners Meghann Quinn, Kevin Smith, and Patrick Smith first planted hops in the Yakima Valley in 1932, the year before Prohibition ended. Now, 84 years later, their love of hops and passion for craft beer has led them to where they are today – in the midst of running a production brewery surrounded by their family’s hop fields, just down the road from where they were born and raised.
Mac & Jack’s Brewery
African Amber Ale, founded in Jack’s garage in 1993, by Malcolm “Mac” Rankin and Jack Schropp. After years of hand delivering keg’s they grew to become a staple in Seattle neighborhood bars and restaurants. Now with the help of a young team of beer visionaries, both new and experienced to the craft, they are creating original recipes with locally sourced ingredients to share with the Pacific Northwest. They currently offer free tours on Saturdays and Sundays, growler fills and tastings of some of their brand new offerings such as the Citra as well as year round offerings such as Maxx Stout, Serengeti Wheat, IBIS IPA and Blackcat Porter.
Pike Brewing Co.
Seattle’s original urban brewery, visit Pike Brewing for two unique dining experiences featuring locally sourced menus paired with handcrafted beers brewed on site. The family friendly Pike Pub offers upscale pub fare and the brand new Tankard & Tun is a NW seafood centric restaurant complete with oyster bar and brew deck adjoining an expanded fermentation cellar. Tour the brewery & peruse beer history in the Microbrewery Museum.
Drop in after a day on the mountain to enjoy a fresh brewed beer at an all-ages tap room and adjoining 15 barrel brewhouse. Open year-round (seven days a week) the tap room offers stunning views of Guye Peak and Snoqualmie Mountain. The beers are European-inspired and uniquely sessionable. With 15 active taps you’ll find a series of award winning German styles including Alt, Schwarzbier and Kölsch, and hop forward ales such as IPA and Hop Session. There are non-alcoholic options, including house made root beer and free carbonated mountain water. You can have food delivered from one of the many local restaurants or bring your own.
