If you enjoy exploring regional craft beers – or just like a refreshing drink now and again – you’ll be happy to learn that there are two excellent breweries quite nearby our Lake Chelan resort: Lake Chelan Brewery and Stormy Mountain Brewing!
The craft beer movement that swept America took serious root here in the Pacific Northwest. There are excellent breweries all over the region, each with their own approach and style.
Independent producers, like craft brewers, help to add unique color and personality to the areas they flourish in. Locally produced craft beers give you more than just a refreshing drink. They also give you a literal taste of the region, a flavor you cannot get at home. For many, that’s a special treat to be hunted down and savored.
If that’s how you feel about regional food and drink – or are just curious about the difference between craft beer and, say, a Coors, – you owe it to yourself to check out the Lake Chelan brewery scene.
