Wild Ride Brew Co.
One of Central Oregon’s most innovative brewers is quickly making a name for itself with its wide range of distinctive, award-winning craft beers.
A brewery and taproom located in the heart of downtown Redmond, Oregon, Wild Ride Brew Co. is responsible for some of the finest, most enjoyable craft beers in the Pacific Northwest. With over sixty styles of beer made since 2014, Wild Ride has been pushing the envelope to innovate with new tastes and styles, always striving to stay one step ahead in the region’s rather saturated craft beer market. Two of their most awarded beers are offered to our Craft Beer Club members this month.
The ‘wild ride’ began when the idea of creating an awesome Oregon craft brewery came alive in 2011. Brian Mitchell, along with a group of life-long friends (and Redmond, Oregon natives), started plotting the course and teamed up with brewer Paul Bergeman. They found their brewery a home in 2013 in an old lumber storage building in downtown Redmond and that’s when the wild ride really took off! The space offered a large outdoor patio and room for a Tap Room right next to the brewery.
Head Brewer Paul Bergeman has proven to be an exceptional addition to the Wild Ride team, bringing brewing experience from the Kona Brewing Company in Hawaii and the award-winning Laurelwood Brewing Company in Portland. His beers have garnered a number of awards and medals and he continues to experiment with exciting new recipes.
Wild Ride Brew Co. takes pride in providing a style of beer for any beer lover’s enjoyment. From the lighter easy-drinking brews, through the hoppy IPA’s, and to the malty darker beers, they have it covered. The brewery also offers barrel aged brews, sour ales, and a number of seasonal and collaboration brews. At any one time, there are typically sixteen different beers available on tap at the Wild Ride Taproom!
It is our pleasure to introduce Wild Ride Brew Co. to our Craft Beer Club members. Cheers!
