Fish is fortunate to have access to high-quality, local ingredients perfect for making our Fish craft beers. This starts with the very basics: water, malt, hops and yeast.
We brew on a 40 barrel brewhouse with a mix of 30 and 60 barrel fermentation tanks. Our annual production capacity is approximately 38,000 barrels of beer and 7,160 barrels of cider, for a total of 45,160 barrels. The brewery is constantly growing to keep up with Washington’s hearty appetite for delicious craft beer.
