The Washington Brewshed Alliance is an outreach initiative of Washington Wild designed to help spread a simple message: protected water makes even better beer. By protecting wild water sources with permanent wilderness designations we are able to protect the quality and integrity of downstream Washington Beer.

About Washington Wild

Washington's wild forests have stood untouched for hundreds of years. These wild places recharge our spirit and nurture our soul. They also work hard for us. They clean our water, purify our air, and provide critical habitat for wildlife such as salmon, grizzly bears and lynx. Our wild lands are a precious legacy we can pass on to future generations.
