-New Beers-

Aslan Brewing Co.

Stillmatic Brett IPA

Brewed with continental malts and a large portion of raw wheat to sustain the Brett Brux culture that lives in the foeder, the beer was then fermented and subsequently aged for 10 months. At the end of its dormancy the contents of the foeder were sent into the stainless tank that held the spent raspberries from the Pink Yoshi Berliner Weisse. Then dry hopped heavily with Nelson Sauvin. Hints of raspberry, loads of pineapple, and a touch of white grapes; this beer is funky, but the brett brux is beautifully balanced into the overall flavor of this juicy treat.

6.6% ABV

Bellingham Cider Company

NW Cherry Vanilla and Watermelon Mint Ciders

These ciders are both hold unique flavors that complement each other. Sounds like a good first and second round to us!

Illuminati Brewing Co.

Grim Reaper Dunkelweizen

The days are getting shorter and the beers are getting darker. We take the annual rise of the delicious dunkelweizen as a sign that fall is here, and so is fall beer.

Kulshan Brewing Co.

El Volcan Mexican-Style Amber Lager

This Mexican Amber Lager is light, crisp and refreshing with hints of bread, toast and a small amount of malt sweetness. Finishes dry with hints of spice, making you want more. El Volcan is now on tap at Roosevelt (K2) and in bottles at both locations.

North Fork Brewery

Aronia Berry Berliner Weisse

Copeland Pilsner malt from our friends at Skagit Valley Malting, Aronia berries, and red wheat make up the Deming, WA brewery’s newest sour!

Structures Brewing

Into The Eternal

This coffee stout uses Guatemalan coffee from Onyx. It’s the perfect balance between sweet and roasty, just the beer for the transition we are going through to fall.

Feral Bones

a stout brewed with Guatemalan coffee from Onyx coffee, and conditioned on subtle amounts of Madagascar vanilla, and cinnamon.

8.2% abv

Wander Brewing

Ground Hop Day

A dry hopped lager with Tettnang, Crystal, and Cashmere hops showcasing green tea, melon, and honey aromas. Soft, bready, and crushable from here to Yakima!
