Balance is the key to our flagship Amber Ale. Munich and Caramel malts provide a solid backbone, while a moderate amount of Cascade hops lend a subtle herbal character. The robust copper color is complemented by a frothy white head that leaves a thick lacing on the glass. This is a well-rounded beer that goes great with most every dish.
We brewed this American IPA with a light body, which makes for a bright appearance and allows the various Yakima Valley hops to shine. Centennial and Cascade hops offer up a medley of citrus flavors with a medium bitterness giving way to a rather dry finish. Whether it be hearts or spades, you’re the dealer when you draw this one-eyed knave.
IBU: 60 + DRY-HOPPED
This hop-whopper is the bigger brother to our Bubblejack IPA, as the multiple hop additions do the talking in this Double IPA. For this version we’ve nearly doubled the hops and added over two and a half pounds of local honey per barrel. Remarkably smooth with a touch of sweetness, a little bit goes a long way.
IBU: 100 + DRY-HOPPED
Finally, a light beer from a local craft brewery. Brewed with 100% Pilsen malt and delicately hopped with Cascade hops, Rush River Light is a true thirst quencher. At 4.2% ABV and only 125 calories, feel free to have a few!
A refreshingly floral Pale Ale, Scenic is hoppy and fragrant. Copious amounts of late-addition Citra and Mosaic hops convey aromatics of grapefruit, apricot and soft pine. The result is a medium-bodied beer with minimal bitterness and a big hop aroma.
IBU: 40 + DRY-HOPPED
Our Golden Ale is brewed with one third of the grain bill coming from White wheat and hopped exclusively with Citra hops. We dubbed it a Session Hazy IPA, having a slightly cloudy appearance and a juicy, tropical nose. Available year-round in the 12 Pack Mixer (occasionally in 6 packs at the taproom).

A traditional English Porter, the Lost Arrow imparts a toasty malt aroma with a mild roastiness highlighted by notes of toffee and chocolate. Though dark and complex, the mouthfeel is surprisingly light with a fairly dry finish. Available year-round in the 12 Pack Mixer (occasionally in 6 packs at the taproom).
Rush River Shandy is brewed to beat the heat. Whole lemons and local honey are the heart and soul of this sparkling all-natural ale. Light in body but big in flavor, Shandy pairs well with summertime. Available March through June (longer at the taproom until supplies last).
An intensely hop-forward ale, Minion is brewed with five and a half pounds of Mosaic and Cascade hops per barrel. Only a handful of those hops are boiled in the kettle, while the vast majority are utilized post-boil in the whirlpool and conditioning tank. This technique gives the beer a dank and pungent aroma and flavor without the bitterness of a traditional IPA. Available July through October (year-round at the taproom).
IBU: 35 + DRY-HOPPED
Our winter seasonal sits at the crossroads of Oatmeal, Foreign Extra and American Stouts. Along with generous portions of Chocolate and Black malts, rolled oats contribute a smooth creaminess while the addition of premium cocoa makes this a very approachable Stout. Think cold-pressed dark roast coffee and chocolate cake. Available November through February (longer at the taproom until supplies last).
An ancient style from the Rhineland, Altbiers are ales that were virtually wiped out by European lagers in the 1800s. Über Alt is a much stronger version of the traditional Dusseldorf Altbiers. We ramp up the grain bill with Pilsen, Munich and Caramel malts to produce a rich, malt-forward German ale. Available early fall while supplies last.
Based on a Wee Heavy Scotch Ale recipe, this deep mahogany beer is the perfect pint for the cold of winter. A soft, warming alcohol presence underlies a full body with a chewy, malty sweetness at it’s core. The addition of roasted barley also contributes a slightly toasted nose and finish. Available late fall while supplies last.
