Badger Mountain Brewing is so steeped in its Washington location that its beers taste like home—literally. Nearly 100% of the barley and wheat are grown in state. Many of the hops hail from nearby Yakima Valley, and the water in the beer flows directly from Badger Mountain's hometown of Wenatchee. The result: painstakingly crafted brews brimming with local pride.
Here's a quick look at a few of Badger Mountain's beers you might find on draft:
- Old World Hefeweizen: a classic, light-hued German brew with a smooth balance of fruit and spices (5.3% ABV)

- Mumbai IPA: dry hopping adds to this india pale ale’s complexity with citrus, mango, and pine flavors (5.5% ABV)
- Crema Stout: a rich, creamy stout that could double as a boozy dessert thanks to its chocolate, coffee, and cinnamon-roll flavors (6.1% ABV)
- No. 1 Orondo Copper Ale: layer upon layer of rich malts combine with earthy hops to form this complex, full-bodied English-style ale (6.1% ABV)
