Experience The County's Artisanal Liquid Creations

Planning a day of tasting? Public transportation options are very limited in The County. Let one of our tour operators do the driving, so you can taste without worry.

From Barley Fields to Craft Brews

Our region’s history has its roots in beer—the ‘Barley Days’ of the late 1800s—when one-third of The County was dedicated to growing barley.

These days, we’re pairing our farm-to-table cuisine with farm-to-pint craft beers. Styles range from bitter IPAs to easy drinking saisons and strong stouts. Keep an eye out for featured brews using farmed or even foraged, in-season ingredients. Collaborative efforts bring breweries together for tasty, local experiments and many brew pubs will pour you a tasting flight of what The County breweries have to offer.

Orchard-to-Glass Delights

Old-growth orchards produce apples both sweet and sour that are transformed into cider. And industrious honey bees are foraging wildflowers, giving unique floral notes to mead (honey wine). Expand your palate and learn something new by visiting The County’s cideries and meadery.

Indulge in The County's Artisanal Spirits

The creative and laid-back spirit of The County is embodied in, well, our spirits. Flourishing juniper bushes contribute their bountiful fruits, serving as the essence of our artisanal gin. Each sip is a reflection of The County's rich and diverse, grain-to-glass terroir.
