Mantorville Brewing Company
Stagecoach Honey Golden Ale
Bright golden amber color. Lively, fruity, toasty aromas and flavors of pineapple-peach pastry, toasted nuts, and herb buttered muffin with an even, crisp, bubbly, dryish medium body and a smooth, medium-length sweet potato chip, salt and pepper, lemon soufflé, and greens finish. A refreshing and well balanced golden ale with nice savoriness.

Tieton Cider Works
"Rambling Route" Hard Cider
Minutely hazy golden yellow color. Lively, yeasty aromas and flavors of dried apple, sourdough, and mossy earth with an even, crisp, petillant, sweet medium body and a tingling, intriguing, breezy hay, sour lemon yogurt, apple skin, and birch bark finish. A dry, earthy, slightly funky Old World style cider that will do well with cheeses.
