Reopening the tasting room this Friday, May 12th. Introducing some changes.
Dwinell Country Ales is not your typical Washington brewery. It has always focused on less common beer styles: farmhouse-style ales, wild-fermented ales, and barrel-aged beers and ciders. Rustic stuff. Although the brewery and its soon-to-reopen taproom are located a bit off the beaten path in the little town of Goldendale, Dwinell Country Ales earned a big reputation for the quality of its work. Writers like me run rattle off a string of adjectives: creative, unexpected, inspired, nuanced, authentic, and so on.
The company just announced that following a three-year hiatus, the tasting room is reopening in Goldendale this Friday, May 12th. During the downtime, a few things changed at Dwinell, not just in the taproom but also in the offerings. The brewery now produces some small-batch lagers and hop-forward ales. Also, Dwinnell has been working on a wine program.
“Those who previously visited our Goldendale tasting room will likely notice several updates to the space’s look and feel,” said the announcement. “And to accompany these changes, you’ll now have a unique opportunity to experience our expanded beverage offerings — many of which will remain exclusive to our Goldendale tasting room.”
“Apart from making beer, we farm a low-density apple orchard about a mile from our production facility and have developed a reputation for our annual production of wild-fermented, pét-nat ciders.”
“Along with our beer and cider offerings, we’ve been quietly developing a small wine program with a focus on low-intervention fermentation techniques, including skin-contact whites and spritzy piquettes.”
“Our May 12 tasting room reopening will mark both the release of our 2022 vintage ciders and commemorate the official launch of our winery brand.”
