PROUDLY BREWED IN FAIRHAVEN, WASHINGTON

We're seven barrels small, which means we experiment, evolve, and embrace everything that small-batch brewing entails. With just six taps in the taproom available to our craft beer, our tap list is constantly changing. 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
7.0% ABV  //  80 IBU

Here in the Northwest, every brewery takes pride in their India Pale Ale, the staple to the typical beer lover's diet. This classic IPA is brewed with a blend of 2-Row, White-Wheat and Specialty malts with Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial hops to craft a well-rounded Northwest favorite. Pine and floral aromas go well with the dry and bitter taste. We raise one to you - our neighborhood!

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).

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!

fairhaven park trale 

Pale Ale
5.4% ABV  //  46 IBU

Brewed to help raise funds for the Recreation Northwest Fairhaven Park Trail, this recipe is an American Pale Ale style that is light in body and alcohol, created to refresh trail workers after a few hard hours of digging and sweating. The distinct auburn color not only brings warm smiles, but also enhances the crisp, floral, and earthy characters of Cascade and Simcoe hops.

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...

 

fairhaven fix 

Coffee Lager
5.1% ABV  //  21 IBU

A rotational favorite, the Fairhaven Fix truly is the definition of a breakfast beer. We take our award-winning Raincountry Liquid Sunshine recipe and find a delicate balance with a unique cold-brew coffee blend. The distinct coffee aroma and mildly roasted flavor finishes crisp and clean with the bready Lager, a perfect combination between two of our favorite beverages.

India Pale Lager
6.0% ABV  //  50 IBU

What happens when a Lager and an IPA both walk into a brewery? And no, as much as we love bad jokes, this is a great beer. This dry hopped Lager has a perceived bitterness with a silky-fresh finish. The heavy hop aromas play into the light body, as the IPL is full of earthy Simcoe and golden Amarillo hop flavors yet the relaxed taste of a Lager.

 

ON your left!

Hefeweizen
6.5% ABV  //  21 IBU

Light and aromatic, this German bavarian wheat beer has moderate tones of clove spice and banana in the flavored body. The On Your Left has a pale and refreshing mouthfeel and is very gently hopped, making an easy (yet surprisingly high-octane) drinking beer for after a not-so-easy bike ride.

Vienna via skagit

Vienna-Styled Lager
4.9% ABV  //  24 IBU

This moderate-strength amber lager has a mild floral aroma with slight bready tones. The simple, subdued, noble hop character has a grassy undertone which balance the hops with the delicate malts. The bronze hue body is composed of 100% local grains from our friends down Chuckanut at Skagit Valley Malting.

India Pale Ale
6.3% ABV  //  54 IBU

Tones of citrus and orange peels add a bright, higher tone to the classic hoppiness of a bitter-forward IPA. The light, golden, body allows you to taste the slight spice and Amarillo hops. Mellower and more relaxed than the Neighborhood IPA, this beer is easy sippin' once the sun comes out. Just remember the Golden Rule: Always drink unto others as you would wish them to drink unto you...

Red IPA
6.0% ABV  //  64 IBU

Full bodied and heavily dry-hopped with Mosaic and Simcoe hops, this Red IPA is a rowdy step up from last summer’s lighter cousin. A mango and tropical fruit aroma pairs well with the slight botanical pine taste behind the rich and hazy red color.

bitter safe than sorry

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

Only 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.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.

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.

Après snow day

Spiced Winter Ale (22oz Bottles!) 
6.9% ABV  //  22 IBU

This malt-forward cozy Winter Ale is dark with subtle tones of toast and caramel. EKG and Target hops highlight the Copeland Dark base malt from Skagit Valley Brewing in our first ever bottled beer! Gently spiced with cinnamon, clove, and vanilla, so you can après all day. 
The non-spiced version will be briefly on tap as just "Snow Day"

Berliner Weisse Sour
4.9% ABV  //  6 IBU

Collaboration with 10 Barrel Brewing Company

Brewed with local Skagit Valley Malting grain and a sour culture from Samish Bay Creamery, the Inspector Skagit has a floral, lemon citrus aroma and golden-straw color. Dry and low in bitterness, the 'Inspector' is a sharp and lively sour with a hint of melon that’s not too tart for summer drinking.

late night delight

Foreign Extra Stout
6.2% ABV  //  38 IBU

Guest Brewer: Brian Hale

We collaborated with Best of the Bay Homebrew Comp finalist Brian Hale for this tasty and rich stout. With a roasted grain aroma, notes of coffee and dark chocolate carry through to the taste. A beer crafted to bring you a lil’ late night delight, no matter the time of the day…

Wheat, then repeat

Belgian Wit
5.2% ABV  //  12 IBU

Brewed with fresh Willamette and Cascade hops grown and harvested locally in Fairhaven, this moderately-malty Belgian Wit was malted with a hefty portion of wheat. The body has a golden straw color, and subtle biscuity tones balance the prominent banana and clove spice flavors. A witbier that’s light, crisp, and lively: wheat, then repeat all day long.

OVERWORKED UNDERGRAD

Session IPA
5.1% ABV  //  72 IBU

Bitter but light, with grapefruit and floral aromas front and center, this relaxed IPA is full of citrus flavors paired with that unique Cascade hop spice. Sessionable and colored like a light blonde, but hoppy like an IPA, this is the beer in your hand all summer until classes start again in the fall. A nod to our hardworking college kids up the South Side hill - take a break from the "studying" and come raise one with us!
