Explore &


We are a group of 12 local breweries: more than 200 fun-loving, beer-drinking, dedicated individuals. We’re lured by the nature and beauty that surrounds us, joined by our passion and love for life, bonded by respect and our mutual commitments to produce exceptional beer, and united in promoting and progressing our craft. Discover the exquisite beer in this beautiful place!

Use your passport to guide you through all of the fabulous breweries the Gorge has to offer. We recommend taking a few friends and sharing taster flights for the best experience, but you don’t have to get to them all in one day! Take your time, mosey along, and most importantly, enjoy the beautiful Columbia River Gorge that keeps us all inspired and doing what we love!
