We are beyond honored and humbled to be named as one of the World’s Best New Brewers by RateBeer! 2018 was a great year for us, having picked up numerous awards and mentions - and now 2019 is off to a great start..
The 2018 Great American Beer Festival, now in it’s 37th year, wrapped up on Saturday in Denver, Colorado and the Pacific Northwest brought home 40 medals from the festival’s competition. The state of Oregon led the way with 22 medals including a silver medal for Wayfinder’s Freiheit Oktoberfest Wiesn in Category 44: Dortmunder or German-Style Oktoberfest.
Trappist, the band that writes d-beat, crust punk, powerviolence, and hardcore songs all about beer, have taken their debut album title Ancient Brewing Tactics quite literally in their latest video feature. In the three-minute clip (which is not a music video, it’s worth noting), we get a behind-the-scenes look as the band members and Wayfinder master brewer Kevin dive head-first into the most ancient brewing tactic of all time, steinbier, a method involving super hot, flame-heated rocks to facilitate the brewing process.
