About Our Award Winning Beers
Fish Tale Organic IPA is a medium-bodied beer with a rich golden color, brewed with the finest organic malts and hops. Leavenworth Boulder Bend Dunkelweizen is an unfiltered dark Hefeweizen, with a gently sweet character infusing its medium-bodied smoothness. Packaged in convenient 6-pack cans the Boulder Bend is great for floating down the river. Our Leavenworth Premium Lager proudly combines traditional Bavarian pilsner flavors with a bolder Northwest profile, resulting in a perfectly balanced full-bodied flavor. Leavenworth Whistling Pig Hefeweizen is a bright reward for days spend under the sun. Crisp yet easygoing, this unfiltered wheat bier and its classically cloudy appearance characterizes the best German hefeweizens but is born in the Pacific Northwest.
