Abstract

Colockum Craft Brewing (CCB) is a half-barrel, nano-brewery and home brew supply store located in an early 1900s building in the City of Kittitas, Washington. The focus of CCB is to produce small batches of handcrafted ales and, as the only home brew supply store in the Kittitas Valley, offer local home brewers quality equipment and ingredients locally at an affordable price. CCB is a community-centered business, obtaining as many ingredients as possible for their ales from local area growers, markets, and businesses and highlighting these ingredients in the ales produced to guarantee the customer a unique, local experience. The brewery is also devoted to educating the public on beer styles by offering brewing classes and monthly tasting sessions that will showcase a particular style or ingredient. The taproom has been restored in a fashion consistent with the era of the building and offers a comfortable private room complete with leather couch and arm chairs for meetings and parties. Featuring three ales available year-round, CCB will also have two taps dedicated to rotating seasonal offerings and a sixth tap reserved for ales designed and brewed in cooperation with local home brewers, home brew club members, and CWU Craft Beer Trade Certificate students. These ales will then be featured each month in the tasting room. By sourcing local ingredients and utilizing the talents of local home brewers, Colockum Craft Brewery will offer customers a unparalleled, distinctly local experience unlike any other.
