Wenatchee has long been known for its orchards, outdoor recreation and scenery. Now, it’s becoming known for craft beer! Come and check out Wenatchee’s new craft brewery district located along the city’s Columbia River waterfront. In addition to the three independent craft breweries, you’ll find great restaurants, shops and lodging, and outdoor pursuits such as skiing at Mission Ridge.
Rails and Ales is Friday, February 2
Come watch some of the best skiers and snowboarders in the state in a ski and snowboard rail jam contest on Orondo Avenue in the heart of Wenatchee Brewers Row. Mission Ridge provides the snow (truck load after truck load) to cover the street, and the portable lighting for this evening event. The spectator area is right outside Badger Mountain Brewery, where the brewery hosts a big outdoor beer garden. There will also be a vendor village with food, hot chocolate, heaters, fires and sponsor tents. More than 3,000 spectators have showed up annually. It is truly an event for all ages. Check out the event from beginning to end here https://vimeo.com/87915548!
About Wenatchee’s Brewing District
Columbia Valley Brewery is Wenatchee’s oldest commercial brewery, opening in 2012 adjacent to Riverfront Park and the Columbia River. Enjoy some of their fresh homemade food while you sip on one of their many craft beers.
Badger Mountain Brewery opened in 2013 as Wenatchee’s largest craft beer brewery. They currently have 24 taps that pour their beer, guest beer, and cider. Located in an old fruit warehouse building, the brewery is filled with charm.
Wenatchee Valley Brewing opened its doors in 2017 after converting an old house next to Riverfront Park. It’s a family run business with a huge love of beer!
All the breweries are within walking distance of each other, via the region’s landmark Apple Capital Loop Trail along the banks of the Columbia. From
craft beer to old industrial areas to recreation and wildlife, Wenatchee Brewers Row highlights the community’s best!
