PROUDLY BREWED IN FAIRHAVEN, WASHINGTON

We're 7-barrels small, which means we experiment, evolve, and embrace everything about small batches.
With only six taps in the taproom available to our craft beer, not every beer we brew is always available.
But this flexibility isn't just half the fun, it's also half the challenge. Want to learn about our beer?
Come drink one with the neighborhood.

India Pale Ale

Pilsner-Style Lager
5.1% ABV  //  21 IBU
2017 Washington Brewers Fest Silver Medal

 
This definitive light Lager hosts the scent of rising bread dough and an ever-so-gentle presence of spicy herbal hops. The dry Pilsner malt backbone, complemented with an easy bitterness, is highly attenuated and refreshing. Named in honor of our close friends at Raincountry Refrigeration, because the taproom bar's chilled cupholders wouldn't be the same without them!

Porter
6.2% ABV  //  20 IBU

In this hearty and warming Porter, rich and lightly burnt black and chocolate grain flavors are balanced between a malty-sweetness and a minimal hop profile. This Porter is both substantially more technical than the mountain biking trail from which it derives its name, and has been theorized to be the cure to a common cold (day).

Citra Down, Bottoms Up

IPA
7.0% ABV, 60 IBU

Specially crafted for Bellingham Beer Week 2018 before becoming a rotating staple in our India Pale Ale collection, this IPA with a golden tan body is loaded and dry-hopped with Citra and Cascade hops. Mango and melon fruit flavors balance out the slight strawberry aroma. The light and semi-sweet golden and tan body from the special Skagit Valley Triticale malt has hints of caramel.

Pale Ales and Session IPAs

A favorite brewing style of ours is the SMASH: Single Malt and Single Hop. Rather than blending hops and malts to find the right varieties, brewing SMASH beers allows you to really let a a single hop or malt characteristic define the beer. Often they are light but hoppy, and some of our favorites so far have paired Simcoe hops with Violetta Pilsner malt, Cascade hops with Copeland Pale malt, and more!

Total Eclipse of the Hop

Cascadian Dark Ale
7.6% ABV, 64 IBU

Loaded with Chinook and Simcoe hops, giving you a strong aroma and subtle pine and citrus flavor to balance out the mellow bitterness and dark, malty, body. An ever-so-slightly roasted personality goes well with the restrained notes of baking chocolate. But now there’s only love in the dark, nothing I can say, a total eclipse of the hop...

Tree rings

India Pale Lager
6.0% ABV, 70 IBU

This heavily dry-hopped lager has a perceived bitterness and fresh finish. The heavy hop aromas play into the light body, as the India Pale Lager has a zippy lemon, orange, and grapefruit citrus flavor to the light body. A freshly cut pinesap aroma fittingly lends itself to the Tree Rings name.

We present to you the Dog Days Brown Ale, to be enjoyed in the memory of Ralphie, the four-legged regular who wandered our taproom every weekend. With an earthy and cedar taste, the clean aroma hints of toast and spice from the Mosaic dry-hop. The full and brown body has a slight pie crust finish.

Bitter Safe Than Sorry

Extra Special Bitter (ESB)
5.4% ABV, 26 IBU

This slightly-citric Extra Special Bitter has subtle fruit tones of nectarine and orange with a bready and herbal aroma. The Bitter Safe Than Sorry is served on nitro and was dry-hopped with EKG hops to craft a subtle, whirling haziness in its glossy body. Bitter by British standards, this ESB is safe to drink as the summer weather turns crisp and autumn settles in to stay for a beer or two.

split decision

Pale Ale
5.3% ABV, 31 IBU

This pale was brewed with the intentions of being another SMASH series beer until it came to the actual hopping: which to use? Well, as you could guess, we couldn’t choose and the Split Decision was born: An aromatic pale ale brewed with both Centennial and Willamette hops. The light body has a slightly spicy kick, dry and distant bitterness, and robust floral flavor with a hint of lemon.
