At Dwinell Country Ales, we're dedicated to making farmhouse and wild ales - a refinement and reinvention of simple, rustic ales traditionally brewed on farms in the region that was once known as Flanders. Today, miles from Belgium, we're enlivening the spirit of farmhouse brewing in the Klickitat Valley. Like our Flemish counterparts, it's our goal to brew using artisanal techniques that are wildly unpredictable and often defy definitions of style. In Goldendale, you'll find us taking inspiration from this brewing ethos - making beers fermented with an elegant blend of yeast and bacteria. Pure Simcoe Mountain water, delicate heirloom malts, Yakima Valley hops, and a rich microflora give our beers a distinct sense of origin. To us, these are Country Ales.
