Cowiche Creek Brewing




  • Fickle Blonde™ Ale

    Being brunettes, we think blondes tend to be a little boring. Blonde beer that is. So we dry hopped this to give it a little character. And then we dry hopped it again. Every year we contract enough hops to brew this during the warmer months - April until we run out. Then it changes the next year.

    Stuff in this beer: Northwest Premium Malts, Warrior® and Citra® hops, Yeast and Water

    Statistics: 2.8° Lovibond, 27 IBUs, 5.1% ABV
    Available in 1/6 and 1/2 BBL Kegs in both Commercial and Retail

  • Northwest Hefe - American Wheat Ale

    We fermented this wheat beer with clean crisp yeast so we didn't get the banana and clove flavors that a German Hefe will present. Then we dry hopped it with Centennial hops to give it a lemon aroma and flavor so you don't have to taint the beer with fruit.

    Stuff in this beer: Northwest Premium Malts, Ekuanot®, Mosaic® and Centennial hops, Yeast and Water

  • Tickle Me Eldo Pale Ale™

    El Dorado Hops were discovered in the mountains of New Mexico, brought to Yakima by CLS Farms in Moxee, and grown by Derrick’s first college roommate – Jeremy Champoux – in Toppenish. We sourced these hops straight from the farm. El Dorado translates to the city of gold. It is a fitting name for these hops because they have a ton of Lupulin, the yellow powder that flavors beer.
    Known as Neo Mexicanus(New Mexico), these hops bring flavors to beer that the European hop strains don’t. Melon, Stone Fruit, Citrus, Floral. They are truly unique and when you taste the beer we think you will agree.

    Named after our pint sized black lab that is always ready to greet you when you visit the brewery, this beer is tiny in ABV and big in charachter with heavy dry hop additions of Simcoe and Citra hops in the fermenter to give it a strong citrus and pine flavor and aroma. It was designed to be dry and crisp and pack a huge hop flavor for such a tiny beer. Enjoy more of this beer without the negative affects of alcohol getting in the way.

  • Farmer Way IPA™(formarly known as YPA)

    Being farmers we wanted a beer that after a hard day in the sun was refreshing, crisp, not too malty... What the heck let's be honest. We wanted a completely unbalanced beer with lots of hop flavor and aroma with a lot of citrus. The maltiness? She gone!

    A collaboration IPA with Catalyss Homes and Black Star Ranch Hops for the Chefs on Tour part of the Tour of Homes. The guy that grows the hops for BSR Hops brought over his Chinook that had been cryo processed to concentrate the flavor which in turn was packed into this beer both on the hot and cold sides. Bittered with “Super High Alpha” hop variety Pahto™ aka HBC 682, this beer is lighter in alcohol for the hot summer nights as we head into harvest. up to the higher ABV to balance it out. Aromas include the resinous, piney, citrus and tropical fruit flavors of Ekuanot®, Chinook, Simcoe® and Mosaic® hops. Lighter in color and drier, this beer promises to refresh.

  • Camp 4 x2IPA Imperial India Pale Ale

    Utilizing the latest “Super High Alpha” hop variety Pahto™ aka HBC 682, this beer packs a bitter punch that stands up to the higher ABV to balance it out. Not satisfied with just a bitter balance, we stuffed the fermenter with double the quantities of dry hops taking advantage of the resinous, piney, citrus and tropical fruit flavors of Ekuanot®, Chinook, Simcoe® and Mosaic® hops. While lighter in color and drier, this beer still has all our favorite hop flavor components loaded into a single glass.

    28,000 Upper Yakima Valley farmland acres are irrigated by mountain runoff carried to a reservoir on the North Fork Cowiche Creek by the cement concaves pictured above. The whole water supply is owned and maintained by the Yakima Tieton Irrigation District Headquarters located on Camp 4 Road just yards from the brewery. Without the work that started back in 1906 that created Clear Lake Dam, Rimrock Lake, the Tieton Main Canal and French Canyon Dam, we would not have hops and barley growing on our farm today.
