For those interested in learning the finer points of beer and beer tasting, we encourage and welcome your questions, as it's a passion we love to share. Our beers are listed below with their BU (bitterness units) and ABV (alcohol by volume) contents. When you visit, try sampler flights of our beers.​

Complements a wide range of foods - Chicken, Seafood, Burgers, mildly spicy dishes, lighter tangy cheeses such as mild cheddar.

30 BU/4.5%ABV

Bizz Johnson Trail Blonde

Tasting Notes:

This Blonde Ale is mildly hopped with Cascade and Czech Saaz. Low bitterness, moderate malt body and low alcohol levels. Fermented at colder temperatures than most ales for a
more lager-like aroma and mouthfeel.

 

Food Pairing:

This light ale pairs well with chicken, salad, and seafood; soft, ripened cheese; and sweeter light desserts.

 

What’s in the Beer?

Pilsner, Munich, Vienna and White Wheat malts; Cascade and Czech Saaz hops.

15 BU/4.5% ABV

Thompson Peak Pilsner

Tasting Notes:

A Classic German-Style Pilsner. Full malt body balanced by a noticeable hop bitterness creates a lager that is dry, crisp, and very refreshing on the palate. Distinct “noble” hop finish is pleasantly spicy without dominating the overall presentation.

 

Food Pairing:

This lager goes very well with lighter foods such as chicken, seafood, and

salads; mild cheeses such as Gouda or white cheddar; and lighter desserts.

 

What’s in the Beer?

Pilsner, Munich, Vienna and White Wheat malts. Czech Saaz Hops.

50 BU/5.5%ABV

Uptown Brown

Tasting Notes:

This classic American Brown Ale emphasizes dark malt character and flavors. Full bodied but easy drinking, malty but not sweet, a great example of a classic American ale style.

 

Food Pairing:

Great with hearty foods like roast pork, sausage, or brisket; smoky cheeses like aged Gouda; and rich desserts like maple-walnut cake.

 

What’s in the Beer?

Northwest Pale Ale, Crystal Wheat, medium and dark crystal, brown and chocolate malts, with a small amount of roast barley. Zythos hops.

30 BU/4.6%ABV

Eagle Lake IPA

Tasting Notes:

This is a very “session-able” India Pale Ale that combines bright citrus and floral hop flavors with a strong malt backbone to create a very well balanced and drinkable IPA. 

 

Food Pairing:

Goes wonderfully with strong, spicy dishes like curry or Tandoori; mild blue cheeses like Gorgonzola; and bold, sweet desserts like Carrot Cake.

 

What’s in the Beer?

White and Crystal Wheat, medium crystal malts. Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic and Ekuanot hops.

75 BU/5.7%ABV

Pioneer Porter

Tasting Notes:

Our Porter is a robust, full bodied dry dark ale with a complex, pleasing mouthfeel. This beer has a medium hop bitterness and a wonderful floral finish both of which complement but do not dominate the overall flavor profile. Roasted barley notes are at the forefront of the malt profile, while depth, body and sweetness are contributed from the use of crystal wheat and dark crystal malts. A subtle, smoky finish comes from a small amount of peated distiller’s malt.

 

Food Pairing:

This dark ale goes great with barbecued and smoked foods, hearty sausages and roasted meats; cow’s milk cheeses like Gruyere or Tilsit; and desserts with chocolate.

 

What’s in the Beer?

Northwest Pale Ale, Crystal Wheat, Dark Crystal and Chocolate malts, Roasted Barley, and a small amount of Peated Distiller’s malt. Zythos, Centennial and Cascade Hops.

50 BU/5.5%ABV

Devil's Corral Imperial Stout

Tasting Notes:

This is a very full bodied, strong and dry imperial stout. Mouthfeel is very complex, warm and lasting from the use of ten different malt varieties, with chocolate and roasted barley notes at the forefront. Northwest hops balance the malt and alcohol sweetness and provide a noticeable pine and floral finish.

 

Food Pairing:

Pairs well with very strong and rich flavored dishes like Foie Gras and Game; long-aged cheeses like Gouda, Parmigiano Reggiano, or sharp cheddar.

 

What’s in the Beer?

Northwest Pale Ale, White and Crystal Wheat, Melanoidin, Medium Crystal, Dark Crystal, Chocolate and Black Malts; Roasted Barley. Columbus, Centennial, and Cascade hops.
55 BU/7.8%ABV

Volcanic Double IPA

Tasting Notes:

Our Double IPA is a true hop-head’s dream. Five different northwest hop varieties give this strong ale an incredibly rich hop bitterness and aroma, while the malt body provides a great balance. Post-fermentation dry hopping adds to the overall hop complexity and aroma. Total hop additions equal over three pounds per barrel.

 

Food Pairing:

Strong and/or spicy dishes such as lamb, curry, chicken fried steak; Artisanal blue cheese like Humboldt Fog; very sweet desserts such as carrot cake or creme brulee.

 

What’s in the Beer?

Northwest Pale Ale, White Wheat, and Carastan malts. Columbus, Amarillo, Centennial, Falconers Flight and Cascade hops.

95 BU/8.5%ABV

Rooptown Red

Northwest Pale, Munich, and Dark Crystal malts, white wheat, and a touch of chocolate malt and roast barley. Well hopped with Centennial, Amarillo and Eukanot. 

60 BU/5.7% ABV

Oktoberfest

SOLD OUT

Tasting Notes:

A classic German style brewed for harvest festivals, this rich but very drinkable dark ruby lager has a wonderful malt forward mouthfeel, balanced by a gentle European noble hop bitterness and finish. We lager this for a month before bringing it to the tap, which makes it incredibly smooth and drinkable.

Great with Mexican or any spicy food; chicken, sausage or pork; perfect with Jalapeno Jack.

 

What’s in the Beer?

Pilsner, Munich, Vienna, White Wheat, and Light Crystal Malts; Czech Saaz Hops.

Hotshots
