-New Pints-

Chuckanut Brewery

Citra Single Hop Lager

The first installment in Chuckanut’s single hop lager series features citra hops. This hip hop is grown right in Yakima, and has an interplay of tropical and citrus flavors and aromas. If you are a fan of beers that highlight the nuances of the hop rather than the bitterness this is the beer for you!

Illuminati Brewing Company

Farmer Bob American Wheat

This classic American Wheat ale is served with a slice of blood orange, weighing in at 5.6% ABV. Cheers!

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Three Fingers IPA

Named after Three Fingers mountain, located near Darrington in the North Cascades, this Imperial IPA is indulgent and excessive in all the best ways. Aroma notes of mango, peach, and orange dominate, while on the tongue grapefruit pith and pine lead the way. Warming and well rounded, Three Fingers is truly a regal example of this style.

The North Fork Brewery

T’Oats Adorbs Pale Ale

“A toasted oatmeal pale ale brewed with Our friend Dave Morales, lover of all things pale ale (with the exception of the last pale ale we brewed together because at the last second I changed the format to pumping boiling wort into wine barrels, then pumping it back to the kettle and boiling longer, pumping back into the barrels and fermenting exclusively with brettanomyces…. “I thought we were going to make a pale ale” HA! We are….)this one is not only T’oats Adorbs but it tastes great also.” -Brewer Eric Jorgenson

Stones Throw Brewery

Bitter Safe Than Sorry!

This ESB on nitro is slightly citric with a bready and herbal aroma. Bitter only by British norms, this brew is a mild 5% ABV.
