We receive a large number of calls asking to come out to the brewery and are flattered by the attention. We would love to have you all out to raise a pint, but unfortunately the brewery is a little too hard to get to and for now we are keeping it closed for tastings.
The road is a little bit too steep and narrow for traffic and would probably be a bit worse after a few of our strong beers. But there’s nothing to fear! Our beer is always on tap now at the Duvall Tavern. You’ll find our Burn Ban Porter year round there as well as a rotating tap of our seasonals.
We are continuing to look into the possibility of opening a tasting room soon and we’ll keep you informed of the progress. Until then, thank you so much for the continued support and kind words. We’ll keep trying our best to make the beers you love to drink!
We love our town… don’t you?
So many things happen as a community, you watch your friends succeed and fail on a level that you could never understand as a younger person. Growing older—through rumor and conjecture—you learn about them, all their faults and horrible bits. Sometimes you really don’t even want to, but it happens.
That is the wonderful thing about beer. There’s no thinking about it. When a beer fits your region, your county, your city—it just fits. There’s not really a way to put it into words that can do it a proper justice. Maybe it’s the water, or the way it finishes perfectly as a stout. Possibly it’s the the way smoke nestles itself just right among the grains that make up a porter you weren’t expecting to take your breath away. In the end, your personal experience will make up all the difference for any sort of bottom line you may have already concluded.
But to conclude is already your demise. If you were to venture that there was a beer which it’s flavors were so great, so profound, there was no other to taste from this day forward, we would fear that you were gravely mistaken. Strongly believing among the entire Renaissance any new combination of grains, hops, and yeast done a different way could potentially blow your mind.
We do not profess to be the one to bring upon you this new flavor, or some era of brewing as a Renaissance does seem to be the harbinger of… We only wish to proclaim that it is a noble endeavor for each and every brewer that does exist today to try and blow that mind. Such is not an easy feat among a cynical world.
Our hope as a brewery, is that all people can unite behind the fact, that simpler times are now upon us. Words about any subject were not as easy to find as a few keystrokes on Wikipedia years ago. Words about what you taste and know to be true are on your tongue, and the last pint that you consumed.
Now more than ever is a time when you have a choice as to what beer you will drink. No longer do the domestics own the market. In that case we stand tall and proud with you all, whichever local pint you hold in your hand, and hope that the future of beer shall hold a place for us all, and together we will change the face of American beer.
We’re hard at work on new beers and festival madness for the summer and just wanted to fill you in. Our forte has never been one of making IPA’s but we’re trying our hardest to balance our bountiful Northwest hops in just the right way to give the hopheads what they desire. We have a deeper respect for those breweries out there who manage to make such great IPA’s.
We hope you have your tickets for this years Washington Brewers Festival. It should be a total blast and we’ll have some guest servers among the DSB staff, of special note, your favorite bartender Bill from the Duvall Grill. Also Jake, one of the owners of DSB will be competing in the keg toss competition—he’s been practicing for months so hopefully he won’t embarrass us, if he does, there will be… consequences.
August will see us participating in the Duvall Centennial and it should be quite the show. We’re working on the perfect summer beer to become the “official” beer of Duvall. We want the town to have their say however in whatever we make. You should be seeing some samples at the Grill so any feedback you can give would be much appreciated.
Testing new beers is the fun part!
All in all it should be a great summer and we hope whatever your plans may include, you’ll raise a glass of Washington beer and revel with us in how glorious it is to live in a beertopia.
Some people drink water from a hose when it’s hot… We do it a little different at DSB.
Because of all your great support, we’re already in need of some expansion to make room for all of our great brews. We have some new beers and some new locations coming soon so keep in touch!
As a surprise addition to our opening tomorrow, we will also be tapping our, “Bos Bruut, Belgian Strong Ale.™” It has an ABV of 10.5% and will be sure to leave a strong impression. There’s only a limited supply however, so come early if you want to give it a try.
Here’s the description –
“Bos Bruut translates to ‘Forest Monster’ in English. Strange calls and movement have been seen and heard surrounding the Duvall Springs Brewery. We needed a strong Belgian to quell our fears as we brewed late into the night. Enjoy this Belgian, and you too may soon forget the things that go bump in the night.”
Take a peek at our new logo! We have T-shirts and caps coming soon, so everyone can be showing off their Duvall Springs Brewing pride. Also if you stop by the Duvall Grill on July 21st, we should have some stickers for you.
