Latest Specialty Beer: Madrone NW Red Ale

As autumn steals the show this month, we think about all the seasonal colors: oranges, browns, yellows, and…Reds! Introducing our latest specialty beer, just tapped this week – Madrone Red. We think you’ll like this change of pace. Madrone Red is a big, bold beer made for enjoying slowly. So kick up your feet, take in the scenery, and give yourself a bit to unwind with this new brew.
