During our visit we milled around the 40+ acres of green space, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. Since we missed the brief alpine larch season this year, Brandon was very excited to see the grove here, decked out in their golden mantle.
We took our time meandering along, with a side trip up the Winery Trail where we wandered through Naches Heights Vineyard to the tasting room. Cuz wine not?
Other favorites we sampled during our visit were the Gentleman Stout thatâs dark char profile is exactly what a hunting lodge might taste like, and the breweryâs uniquely hoppy take on the Cream Ale.
Maybe itâs the water. An artesian well provides super-cold water for brewing and wort-cooling purposes. Berchmanâs brews are also bottle conditioned, resulting in natural carbonation and wonderfully unfiltered body. We caught the tail end of Fresh hop season, and were rewarded with a choice of 3 on tap! One of our favorite beers was Mr. Ruff, a German-style Hefe that really let the Belgian influence the brewery is known for shine.
