wHAT IS DARK SIDE?

Dark Side Brewing is a vision for crafting inspired, thoughtful, and expressive ales. We believe that it is possible to create unique, inspired beers in today's climate, which is why we are dedicated to creating farmhouse and wild ales. Our mixed-fermentation program has been an ever evolving operation, focused on barrel fermented beers that are blended and then further developed - either with or without a variety of adjuncts that accentuate the beer.

Our aim is to open a farm brewery, a destination to share, imbibe, and gather. But the future is still a ways away, and we are focused on perfecting our product. When it's time, it'll be time. But until then, if you'd like to try our beers - just ask.

Riwaka™ is a hop I have been fascinated with ever since I first tried Hill Farmstead's Riwaka Pale Ale. I had been trying, for years, to source this hop, but it has never been available to United States home-brewers before this past winter. Thanks to Yakima Valley Hops, however, that changed. I immediately placed an […]
