Ridgewalker Brews

Treewise IIPA
IPA - Imperial / Double

ABV: 8.5% IBU: 102

This Imperial IPA was born out of a desire to reach the heights of bitterness often seen amongst its peers, but with a carefully balanced malt profile that allows it to be enjoyed rather than endured. This powerhouse of hops partakes of copious quantities of Zeus and Centennial, added for their clean and aromatic qualities, which have been painstakingly balanced against Caramel malt to produce a beer with a bright, clean bitterness against a caramel and toffee background which is deceptively smooth.


Long Stride IPA
IPA - American

ABV: 6.7% IBU: 70

We love hops. They are every bit as important to us as the carefully chosen malts. Long Stride IPA is our testimony to that philosophy. We brew our Long Stride IPA to showcase the flavor and aroma of the hop varietals used, before imparting bitterness. We believe bitterness is a byproduct of healthy hop additions, but not an end unto itself. Therefore our IPA boldly expresses it's citrusy, floral, fruity and resinous aromas and flavors without searing your tongue with bitterness.


Noctilucent Stout
Stout - American

ABV: 6.5% IBU: 28

This American style stout is a paean to its predecessors. Developed to be a strong and simple stout, this darkest of beers uses a careful blend of roasted barley, caramel and chocolate malt, and flaked oats to produce a smooth and characteristic finish that is carefully offset by a mild addition of Mt. Hood and Cascade hops. Carefully designed, and methodically brewed, this beer lives up to its name.


Skyloss Pale
IPA - American

ABV: 5.5% IBU: 38

Biscuity with hints of caramel and a creamy mouthfeel from the honey malt and Premium 2-Row. This beer has carefully crafted citrus and tropical notes, with a piney citrus character throughout and a slight bitterness for the finish.


Storm Brown
Brown Ale - American

ABV: 5.5% IBU: 28

The Storm Brown Ale is named after our very own Storm Brown. Without him, this recipe would have never reached its modern iteration. We are certainly glad that it did.

This ale is distinctly American in its makeup, but is also reminiscent of British brown ales. The Storm Brown Ale is extremely complex with chocolates notes giving way subtle hints of caramel, nut and tobacco. An earnest hop schedule rounds out this deceptively drinkable ale and brings in a well measured bitterness. At 6.0 ABV, this beer is full bodied and flavored and heftier than most of his competitors.


Alluvion Amber
Red Ale - American Amber / Red

ABV: 5.8% IBU: 30

Malt steals the show with this beer showing off caramel, toast, and biscuit character with very slight sweetness. The hops take a backseat but play and important role in balancing the malty profile of this beer. This smooth-drinking and satisfying ale will have you calling for another pint.


Wickiup Wheat
Hefeweizen

ABV: 4.6% IBU: 24

This Wheat balances Great Western Premium 2-Row malt and German Wheat malt to give it the distinct bready wheat flavor and color. This bright, golden ale is a summer quencher with a strong citrus backbone brought out by calculated additions of Centennial hops balanced with classic wheat yeast that brings out the “Hefe” in Hefeweizen.


Knife Edge Lager
Lager - Pale

ABV: 5.2% IBU: 27

A crisp, dry and clean golden lager with a hint of honey. We add just enough Northwest hops to round out the light malt profile. An easy drinking and memorable take on a sessionable classic, brewed with traditional Budejovice yeast and German Pilsner malt for a distinctive crispness.

OUR TEAM

ABOUT

 

As is the case with many breweries, Ridgewalker was born out of little more than a love of beer and a dream of something better. Like many home brewers, Justin and Storm had entertained the idea of opening their own brewery, and serving beer to fellow lovers of the craft, and when the opportunity presented itself to turn this dream into an idea; they seized upon it, and turned that idea into reality.

Justin and Storm first met in 5th grade at the Forest Grove School District’s main office, during the annual spelling bee district finals. Taking first and second, they began a friendship which led through high school and college. During summer breaks, the two of them began brewing their own beer together, and in a manner familiar to both of them, began obsessing over the quality and character of their product. Sharing new techniques and methods and becoming more and more familiar with the science of the process, their beer transitioned from drinkable, to decent, to a product that they would be proud to offer to others.

After college, the two of them became roommates with another member of Ridgewalker, Jason, who by virtue of being a close friend for many years, had seen their passion for brewing, and heard the many wild dreams about opening their own brewery someday. At this time, Storm left on a five month hike of the Pacific Crest Trail, hiking from Mexico to Canada across the ridges of the Sierra Nevada, the many ranges of southern California, and the volcanic Cascades of Oregon and Washington, providing ample time for him to think about that brewery he’d always wanted to open. Upon his return, he and Justin began brewing again.

Seeing this, Jason then brought up the possibility of making the brewery happen, and asked what was stopping us from turning this hobby into something real. This prompted a more serious discussion between Justin and Storm, who began brewing more regularly, and developing recipes that could be duplicated, and tracked in such a way that they would result in a real, saleable product. A name had to be selected, and in the spirit of their many travels in the mountains of Oregon and along the Pacific Crest Trail, Ridgewalker was chosen.

Shortly thereafter, Jason’s brother Chris was brought on as someone who could navigate the series of licenses, taxes, and certifications needed to turn two guys making beer into a legitimate operation. All four of the members of what would eventually become Ridgewalker then began the painful process of turning that concept into a brewery. Justin and Storm continued to brew new styles, and refined old styles, while Jason converted a garage into a location where a small commercial brewhouse could be installed. Chris continued to hammer away at the local, state and federal agencies, bringing Ridgewalker to the point where we not only could make beer, we could sell it.

That brings us to today, where despite many obstacles and the occasional setback, Ridgewalker Brewing Company exists as one of only a few breweries in Washington County, and is well on the way to occupying a space in Forest Grove, the city in which this all began. Ridgewalker’s one barrel brewhouse produce a regular output of beer to local taprooms and restaurants, and the craft continues to be refined while they continue on their way.
