Ellensburg Brewing Co. & Tilted Tree Cider

Ellensburg Brewing Company is a new addition to Ellensburg's craft beer culture. They serve craft beer and cider with scratch made German bar food! Hoping to bring back the history of brewing beer in Kittitas County, the new brewery pays homage to the breweries of Ellensburg's past: Ellensburg Brewing and Malting Company (1907-1915) and Ellensburg Brewing Company (1933-1937). In fact, the old styles of beer are also replicated here, typically featuring German styles in honor of the German brewers from the original breweries.

We may be talking beer here, but it's worth noting that the establishment also features a cidery called Tilted Tree as well. The apples are grown in the Yakima Valley and the cider is produced in house. During your visit, be sure to try out one of their three featured ciders or ask for the seasonal selection!

Whipsaw Brewing

Whipsaw Brewing is a 3 Barrel system artisan NANO-brewery. Every batch of beer is personally hand-crafted and tasted to ensure its patrons receive the highest quality product. This independent craft brewery has definitely left its mark on the people of Ellensburg. Rooted in the belief that good beer stems from great people, Whipsaw embraces the social aspect of drinking. Head in to swap stories over a pint of their Stumpblower IPA or the Buzz-On Blackberry!
