There’s nothing like a cool drink on a hot day and Lake Chelan offers plenty of both. Come explore Chelan breweries and hard cider mills for the best in fresh and delicious local brews.
The Chelan Valley is well known for its amazing selection of fine wineries but grapes aren’t the only things fermenting around here! Craft beer and hard cider fans will be happy to learn that the valley is also home to a number of breweries and cideries.
You’ll find no fresher brew than at a producer’s taphouse or tasting room and many also serve paired food or small bites. Other perks include chances to sample one-off, in-house brews, go on a brewery tour, or meet and chat with the brewmaster.
Whatever the venue and offerings, at the very least, locally produced craft beverages provide a literal taste of the region. A combination of flavors, venues, and personalities you won’t find anywhere else. That’s what travel is all about, after all.
Best of all, every one of the Chelan breweries and cider mills listed below is within half an hour or less of our Lake Chelan resort, Kelly’s Resort.
