This Columbia Gorge brewery off the beaten path offers eclectic beers and is well worth the trip.
Goldendale, Washington (August 1, 2018) – Recently named one of the “The Six Best Washington Breweries Outside Seattle” by “The Stranger,” Dwinell Country Ales in Goldendale, WA will celebrate its one-year anniversary on Saturday, August 18, 2018 from 12:00 to 10:00 pm. To commemorate their first birthday, Dwinell Country Ales will feature special beer tappings, new merchandise, live music, and freshly prepared food.
The brewery, which normally welcomes outside food and hosts rotating food trucks, will offer farm-to-table sandwiches made in partnership with Goldendale-based Lefever Holbrook Ranch. In addition to grabbing a bite to eat, those who travel to Goldendale will have the opportunity to outfit their wardrobe with new Dwinell Country Ales t-shirts and sample limited-release beers, including mixed-culture ales made with locally-grown fruit. Then, from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm, Columbia Gorge local Tyson Huckins will perform live original music on their outdoor patio.
Dwinell Country Ales, which focuses on farmhouse-style ales, operates a 7-barrel brewery and family-friendly tasting room in the heart of downtown Goldendale, WA. There, you’ll find a rotating tap list that showcases saison-inspired, mixed-culture beers, delicately hopped rustic ales, and wild ales fermented with native yeast and local fruit.
After a recent visit to Goldendale, Portland-based beer writer Jeff Alworth called Dwinell Country Ales “one of the best new breweries in the Pacific Northwest” and described the beers as “travel-rewarding ales.” Alworth wrote, “[They] are making an uncompromising list of very sophisticated rustic and wild ales (some of which are also hoppy) that would be outside the craft mainstream in Portland”
Located at 206 W Broadway St in Goldendale (a mile west of Route 97, approximately 12 miles north of the Columbia River in the heart of the Klickitat Valley), Dwinell Country Ales is quietly becoming a go-to destination for beer lovers and those traveling through the Columbia River Gorge.
Whether you’re passing through Goldendale, day-tripping through the Gorge, or simply looking to enjoy good beer, food, and music on a beautiful summer evening, be sure to mark your calendar and stop by Dwinell Country Ales, the place that Vancouver-based beer writer Michael Perozzo aptly described as “the best new brewery in Washington that you haven’t been to yet.”
