de Garde Brewing is a unique and delightful rural brewery located in Tillamook which specializes in ales. The brewer’s focus however, is on spontaneous fermentation inspired by the European farmhouse traditions. Their world class craft ales draw on historic traditions with local experimentations.
Their tasting room offers a rotating list of the different types of draft beer they produce for sampling. They have several dozen varieties of wild beers including Berliner Weisses (with a variety of fruit additions), and Saisons of the ale variety. If you find one you like, they offer bottles for sale. Get those bottles while you can, as invariably de Garde Brewing is growing in popularity and the consumer demand for their unique ales tend to empty the kegs almost as soon as they are produced! It is not uncommon for their kegs and bottles to sell out on release days.
In order to accommodate increased demand they recently installed three 1300 gallon foeders and two 1700 gallon foeders. de Garde, meaning; “for keeping” is an appropriate name for this coastal brewery, as everyone that tries their ales want to keep some for themselves. de Garde Brewing is open Thursday through Sunday for your enjoyment. Please be aware that at this juncture, minors and pets are not permitted.
Tillamook County offers a brewery that creates a plethora of distinguished ales, sure to please even those with the most discriminating palate. Be sure to stop by when you’re in town!
