About Our Name

Although a familiar name around Hood River, many people are unaware "Wyeast" is derived from a local Klickitat Indian legend. As legend has it, two fierce Indian Chiefs were locked in battle for the affections of the maiden Loo-wit. The battle became so ferocious the Great Spirit intervened by destroying the Bridge of the Gods (the arch over the Columbia River, connecting the two mountains). The Great Spirit turned Loo-wit into Mt. St Helens, Chief Klickitat into Mt. Adams and Chief Wy'east into Mt. Hood.

Ingredients » Flavors and Additives

Using fruit flavor additives for home brewing takes the guesswork out of brewing fruit flavored beers. By using fruit flavor additives, you can be certain about a recipe because you won't have to worry about the ripeness and/or size of the actual fruit that you may be adding to your beer.

Oak staves can be added to your homebrew in order to give your beer that smokey oak flavor. Great addition to IPAs.
