Every brewer uses similar ingredients, but we make an extra effort to highlight and source the finest ingredients possible. There's no need to complicate the process or go overboard with additives to make something special. It's a simple equation really: take the hard work of the farmers, add a little chemistry, and you've got yourself a well-crafted beer.

CURRENT TAP OFFERINGS:
INDIA PALE ALE
You’ve gone from shrubland to woodland to highland. When you stop to sip on a Chief Peak, the piney hops are first to arrive. The tropical tones of passion fruit, orange, and gooseberry aren’t far behind. Look out on the valley and trace the contours of the mountain. Breathe in the thinning air, wipe the sweat from your brow, and take another well-earned sip.
The weather vane squeaks as the wind picks up. Clouds roll in and long shadows move across the fields. There are holes in your gloves and there’s dirt in your sweat. At first just a drop, then begins the downpour. You drink it in. There’s a hint of tartness, a dash of pepper, a pinch of clove, and finally a most welcome effervescence.
The tires are dug in deep and the tide is going out. As the sun dips below the horizon, the air begins to chill. It’s time to pitch the tent, build a fire, and open the cooler stocked with Weekender. It’s earthy yet tropical, dank yet fresh. As the fire roars, a grin rises on your lips as you recall that it’s only Friday.
SINGLE HOP IPA
From bine to pint, our Solitude Series marks a distinct departure from the hop blends that make up most of our beers. Instead it captures the essence and simplicity of a single hop, brewed fresh with only the whims of the season as our muse. To appreciate the subtle changes, you’ll just have to come back more often.
As you wade in the current, the work week fades to gray. When the line strikes and you begin that delicate dance, there’s no choice but to be in the moment. The refreshing citrus cues and woodsy pine flavor are like the creek passing through the forest. It’s a west coast Pale Ale for a west coast way of life.
COFFEE IPA SERIES
Sometimes the night calls to you and sometimes you call to the night. Your heart beat quickens, but one mustn’t be afraid of unknown. Howler’s signature flavor comes from the blend of citrus hops and house-made cold brew made with rotating beans from local coffee roasters. If you hear the howling of this coffee IIPA outside your door, better let it in.
NITRO MILK STOUT
CURRENT BOTTLE OFFERINGS:
BARREL-AGED IMPERIAL MILK STOUT
BREWED WITH WITH: vanilla beans, cacao nibs, toasted coconut
The air is still and the moon is out; a perfect night to tip this beast into a snifter. Don’t be nervous.

Just like the famed Tux cattle of the European Alpine, this beer is a rare breed and must be respected. Enjoy!
BARREL-AGED BELGIAN STYLE QUAD ALE
NOTES: black currant, molasses, fig, cedar, white grape
You've scoured the land far and wide, high and low, and now at long last—behold! There she sits: the elusive Marbled Murrelet. Celebrate the victory of your keen eye with our Barrel-Aged Belgian Style Quad Ale. It's a reward akin to this bird in rarity and majesty. Your patience has paid off. You deserve every sip.
BARREL-AGED IMPERIAL STOUT
NOTES: caramel, toasted almond, mocha
It’s a bird?! It’s a plane?! No… it’s Black Wing! This Russian Imperial Stout soars high above the competition scouting potential drinkers. Just like the resilient California condor, this barrel-aged beverage is being re-released into the wild for your drinking pleasure. Majestic beasts cannot be tamed, please pour into proper glassware.
