Alewerks - The Best of Virginia Craft

Featured Breweries

I’ve never stepped foot in Virginia a day in my life. I mean, what’s Virginia even about, anyway? It’s old, it’s got a bunch of Civil War battlesites, it’s not a state but a “Commonwealth” whatever the hell that means. Virginia wasn’t even in the waiting room on the list of places I wanna check out -- that is until I tried Alewerks Brewing Company. These guys have been brewing nonstop for over 10...

High Water Brewing

Featured Breweries

High Water Brewing is a true NorCal treasure.

Sitting in the sun he wanted pure...

Who is the Juiciest New Brewery in the Northwest?

Featured Breweries

There could be arguments made for a number of different rising-star rookie breweries in the Northwest - Skookum, Baerlic, Stormbreaker, Urban family. But there's one stealing everyone else's shine: Portland's Great Notion. If you haven't tried a beer from them yet it's probably because, with the exception of a few recent tap takeovers like at Seattle's Teku Tavern where people lined up before they even tapped the kegs and a handful of collaboration projects, you have to actually go to...
