In 2017 Gabe Gorton started Taneum Creek Brewing in Cle Elum, Washington. It eventually grew into a brewery with a taproom. The first taproom was located east of town, but it eventually moved to a location on the main drag downtown. Then, in 2020, Taneum Creek Brewing closed its taproom altogether. That was pretty much the last we heard from the brewery, but now we know more. Gabe recently provided an update via email, social media, and his brewery’s website.

“As of the beginning of 2021 I have taken over the reins as head brewer at Mule and Elk Brewing and Taneum Creek Brewing has become more of my wild and sour pet project,” Gabe says.

Mule and Elk Brewing, also located in Cle Elum, has a brewery and taproom in the heart of downtown. There, as the head brewer, Gabe intends to continue brewing more-accessible, taproom-style beers: IPA, Pale Ale, Porter, and so on.

“Both breweries are separate companies, but I brew all of the beer, which I love because I don’t have to worry about running a taproom, and I can focus on making a delicious product,” he explains.

Gabe says that from now on Taneum Creek Brewing will focus on sourcing nothing but ingredients grown in Eastern Washington, capturing native, wild yeast to give the beers a sense of place. He’ll package the beer in bottles, making some of the beers available via a bottle club exclusively.

Will the future see Taneum Creek Brewing open another taproom? Gabe explains that it isn’t likely, at least not in the next year, adding that you just might find some of his Taneum Creek creations on tap alongside the beers at Mule and Elk Brewing.

“It will be a mix of old M&E favorites, some Taneum deliciousness sprinkled in, with a decent helping of all new beers focusing on American and British Ales.”

“We have made a brand new [Taneum Creek] Bottle Club that will automatically ship 12 unique, wild, and sour beers to your doorstep per year,” he says. “Three of those beers will be barrel-aged and only available through the Bottle Club. We are also including some proper glassware for you and a friend. Oh yeah, and you get 20% off additional bottles a week before the general public is able to purchase them.”
