-New Beers-

Kulshan Brewing Company

Northwest Wheat

In stark contrast to many traditional German Hefeweizens that feature banana and clove, this American style wheat ale offers a refreshingly light body and taste that would appeal to even the most fickle palates. A large proportion of wheat malt gives this beer its signature bready taste, with a slightly crisp and tart finish. A small amount of Comet and Loral hops provide a candy like sweetness and a lemon citrus hop character.

Menace Brewing

Pop Punk Pilsner

Made with German noble hops/German pilsner malt and lagered for 7 weeks, this 5.2% headbanger is the perfect beer to sing along to the songs of summer with.

Illuminati Brewing Company

Old Glory American Amber Ale

Slight, pleasant bitterness, mild hop aroma, with a big malty mouthfeel and noticeable residual sweetness. Brewed with the classic American hop varieties Chinook, Centennial, Willamette, and Mount Hood.

Structures Brewing

Oat Boat

Brewed with 65% oats, hopped with Amarillo and Citra, 4.3% ABV. A boat beer at heart.

Solar Mist

This Brut IPA finished below 0 Plato, has zero IBUs and is dry hopped with Citra and Amarillo. 7% abv. Effervescent, peach soda pop.

Wander Brewing

Crepuscular Rays IPA

Drinks like a single golden spotlight slicing through the PNW’s notoriously cloudy atmosphere. Crepuscular Rays is bright, extra juicy, and citrus forward with a mélange of Mosaic, Amarillo, Simcoe, and Ahtanum hops.
