Founded by Justin and Jocelyn Leigh, Dwinell County Ales focuses on wild ales that feature mixed-culture beers fermented with an elegant blend of yeast and bacteria. Preferring to use the most local ingredients it uses pure Simcoe Mountain water, delicate heirloom malts, Yakima Valley hops, and the microflora of the Klickitat Valley to create beers with a distinct sense of origin. This is all accomplished it its seven-barrel brewery.
“At Dwinell, it’s our goal is to make flavorful, approachable mixed-culture fermentation beers,” says brewer/co-founder Justin Leigh in a statement. “With our tasting room, we’re able to share our beers and, in doing so, foster a sense of community.”
In addition to its signature ales, Dwinell offers guest IPA and cider taps, cold brew coffee on draft, and homemade Italian sodas. Dwinell regularly hosts a rotating selection of food trucks and encourages guests to bring outside food to make for a more enjoyable day.
