Aslan Brewing Co.

Orange Suede Suit Farmhouse Ale

Aslan worked with Fortside Brewing on this beer and blended hard red and soft white Skagit Valley Pilsener malt through a multi-step mashing process then whirlpooled it with Hallertau Blanc hops. The final step was to ferment and age the beer in neutral French oak for several months with zested and pressed Cara Cara oranges. If Orangina befriended a farmhouse ale, went on a few dates, fell in love, got married, and had a kid, you’d end up with this! Spritzy, light barnyard aroma, orange essence, and so so drinkable. ⠀

Menace Brewing

Menace-tirith Pale Ale

This 5.5% pale ale will remind you just how much you love a good pale on a hot summer day. Cheers, Menaces!

Stemma Brewing Co.

Log Off Lager

This Helles Lager offers a sweet grain aroma followed by a delicate soft malt flavor showcasing 100% Francin malt grown in Skagit Valley and malted by @skagitvalleymalting . At 4.9% ABV this easy drinking lager is refreshing and perfect for any occasion.
