On Tap

1. What A Peach
  • 1188

A twist on the popular Gose Girl, we’ve added fresh picked, locally grown, peaches Kimbrely Orchards. This slightly sour, crisp peachy gose is perfectly balanced with soft mouthfeel and dry finish, with subtle tones of Himalayan Sea salt and fresh ground coriander, an absolute must for the hot early harvest season.

2. Wildhorse
  • 1188

An American Style IPA, this crafted nectar from Eastern Oregon is “free-spirited“ and bold as the name suggests. It is well balanced between Maris Otter malted grain and the Nugget and Cascade hops.

3. Whackadoodle
  • 1188

This beer will change every time we make it. It is brewed on top of an existing double dry hopped IPA batch to utilize as much of our yeast and wonderful hops as possible. This will be a forever changing and thoughtfully blended Pale Ale. it's a little wacky, but it works!

4. Kindergarten Cop
  • 1188

“You know, kindergarten is like the ocean. You Don’t want to turn your back on it.”
The kindergarten AVB will have you thinking “I'm not a policeman, i'm a princess” But the flavor is going to surprise you. Just like those out of hand kids. You definitely don't want to turn your back on this beer. This German black lager is light on malt, roast, and hops, but comes together to be well balanced flavorful beer.
This kindergarten level beer definitely has a PHD.

5. Cold Ember
  • 1188
6. Country Roads
  • 1188

You all know the words! Since The Gnome was born in West Virginia it only makes sense that this is one of his favorite tunes. This American Wheat Lager is every bit as refreshing as a drive down a country road to your favorite getaway spot on a summer day.

7. Eat Sleep Brew

8. Logan Valley
  • 1188

Another favorite place for the owners to grab some down time is Logan Valley. This brew is beer in its simplest form. It’s a bright golden beer with effervescent aromatics of fresh malted barley and lager yeast. It has subtle and soft malt flavors that finish crisp and clean making it perfectly balanced for smooth and easy drinkability.

9. Baked Apple
  • d's Wicked

Our go-to cider from Kennewick, WA. Off-dry with a hint of spice, Baked Apple hosts the flavors of Red Delicious and Honey Crisp apples, finishing with a perfect touch of cinnamon.

10. Chardonnay
  • Coopers Hall

Some of our favorite Chardonnays come out the Macoonais in southern Burgundy with their pure, unfettered expression of the grape. They can be straight forward while retaining a sort of simple elegance, a quiet energy that can surprise you.

11. Lemon Ginger
  • Ablis
12. Peach Lemonade
  • Square Mile

If you fix your eyes on a field, you may see the grass shift or a bush move. That’s the fox sneaking towards a tree filled with juicy peaches or crisp apples. And if you pay close enough attention, you may taste those peaches and apples in this can of Peach Lemonade Cider. This bright and citrusy cider is balanced with sweet notes of juicy peach and lemonade.
