-New Beers-

Illuminati Brewing Co.

Cosmic Berry Glitter Sour

This sour was brewed using marionberries and strawberries and is out of this world delicious! Stay tuned for more funky glitter brews as Pride gets closer!

Wander Brewing

SPLIT Beer

This brew was made just for the Baker Splitfest happening this weekend at Mt. Baker! We SPLIT this malt bill down the middle with Pilsner and Vienna malts and topped it with a bit of wheat and flaked oats to round out the mouthfeel. Crystal, Cascade, Glacier, and Simcoe hops accompany you on a piney-earthy-resinous back country adventure.

On tap in the Brew Hall, at Chair 9 and at Mt. Baker Ski Area.

South African Station

Danky melon, tropical stone fruit, blackberry bubblegum. Brewed with red and flaked wheat and layered with heavy additions of African Queen hops. A fitting nod to  @elizabethstation in celebration of their 7th Anniversary.

“To them we say thank you for showcasing not only local beers, but the amazing beers of the world.”
