    Drink Responsibly:Orlison's Orders

    Responsible drinking is of the utmost importance to everyone at Orlison Brewing Co. We want people to enjoy our deliciously crafted lagers safely, comfortably and without harming or bothering others (unless you’re handing them a can of our beer and telling them to try something great, in which case it’s totally OK).

    We encourage everyone to promote responsible drinking wherever they are. Those who Brew No Evil™ don’t want our fans to be evil, so pass that thought on to people you meet.

    Don't Be Evil

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we will be open again tomorrow. Our table at Costco is ready and waiting for you to come say 'hi'. We will be at both #Spokane area stores today and tomorrow, featuring 8 packs of Pilsner 37. Do you drink your beer straight from the can (or bottle, if you're into that kind of thing), or do you pour it in a glass first? #brewnoevil Having a great time with our #Spokane #beer friends at Rocket Market tonight. @rivercitybrewing @LibertyCider Get in there, hoppy yumminess! #brewnoevil
    You would be surprised how much of the brewery life is moving stuff around and cleaning. #brewnoevil #brewingthehardway Have you grabbed our cans before? Hmm, that may have come out wrong. A look at the drivers seat brewing up a batch of Clem's. Almost looks like a 1970's space ship. #brewnoevil
    • Award-winning Craft Brewed Lagers
    • The Orlison Story.

      Brewing the best lagers in the Pacific Northwest takes more than skill and drive; it requires a staff of dedicated beer lovers and a brewmaster who understands what it takes to create crisp, refreshing and flawless lagers worthy of the world stage.

      Orlison Brewing Co., located in Airway Heights, WA, is a small craft lager brewery looking to convert ale enthusiasts everywhere into true lager fans. Originally founded in 2009, years of tried and true brewing methods provide our team with the knowledge and capabilities needed to create the best craft beers available in the Pacific Northwest. We are also the first Inland Northwest brewery to can our beer, a distinction we are proud of.

      Our motto, Brew No Evil™, is a statement of our commitment to brewing the cleanest, clearest and tastiest lagers available today. Our award-winning crisp beers stand as a representation of everything we want our customers to enjoy in a real lager. Whether you’re interested in a smooth, light Pilsner like our Havanüther or Orlison’s IPL, our crazily hoppy lager, try out a glass of real beer from Orlison Brewing Co. today.

    • About Brewmaster Bernie Düenwald
    • About Brewmaster

      Bernie Düenwald

      Brewmaster Bernie Düenwald stands at the center of Orlison Brewing Co. With a lifetime of involvement in nearly every aspect of the beer brewing industry, Bernie’s passion for craft beer brewing translates into the amazingly flavorful lagers he produce.

      An Ivy League-educated graduate of Dartmouth College, Bernie has spent decades involved in the malt and barley industry. After graduating from college, Bernie spent over 15 years farming wheat and malting barley on his land in Washington State. While there, he served as a charter commissioner on the Washington Barley Commission and developed a deep appreciation and an understanding of high quality brewing ingredients. In 1990, Bernie began working for a malt distribution company and sold brewing malts to beer companies across the globe. Bernie was educated in brewing methodology at the Seibel Institute during this time, further expanding his brewing knowledge. In 2001, Bernie accepted a position with the U.S. Grains Council in Washington, D.C.

      In 2005, Bernie returned to Washington State and began laying down the foundations for what would eventually become Orlison Brewing Co. In the time since, Bernie has crafted award-winning lagers that make a real impression on every beer lover lucky enough to sip one.

    • Why
      We Only Brew Craft Lagers

    • Orlison Brewing Co. only brews the finest craft lagers. Brew-master Bernie Düenwald stays true to his heart by producing clear, crisp and refreshing lagers. With only the finest Northwest ingredients we create full bodied and delicious finishing lagers that stand apart in the craft ale world. A Lager takes longer to ferment, requires a cooler temperature and closer monitoring than your typical Ale. These cool temps and attention to detail give lagers their distinctly crisp, refreshing taste and set them apart from other craft beers.

      Our commitment to brewing lagers has paid off for us in spades. Since our founding in 2009, Orlison Brewing Co. lagers have won several prestigious awards at brewing festivals, including a bronze medal for our Brünette brown lager in the American dark lager category at the 2010 World Beer Championships and a gold medal for Lizzy’s Red in the 2013 Washington Beer awards.

    FAQS

    The brewmaster and staff at Orlison Brewing Co. get a lot of questions about our excellent lagers, brewing methods and distribution area. Below is a list of frequently asked questions regarding our line of super lagers. If you have a question that isn’t addressed below, please contact Orlison Brewing Co. for more information.

    • Orlison lagers are currently available in bars and taverns throughout Washington State and into Oregon and Idaho. All of our lagers are canned and available at liquor and grocery stores. For more information on where to find Orlison beer, visit our where to find page.
    • Orlison Brewing Co. beer is carried by a network of beverage distributors in Washington State and the Greater Seattle area. For more information on our distributors, or to become an Orlison Brewing Co. distributor, visit the distributor page.

    • Orlison Brewing Co. currently has 7 craft brewed lagers:
      • Havanüther, our popular light pilsner
      • Clem's Gold, a pre-prohibition style lager with a smooth taste
      • Orlison’s IPL, an Indian pale lager brewed with 9 hops varieties
      • Lizzy's Red, a deeply flavored, complex lager
      • Brünette, our award-winning brown lager
      • Ünderground, our truly unique stout lager
      • Pilsner 37, our modern take on an old world Pilsner 

      We're always tinkering around with new beers, so keep an eye on our Orlison Brewing Co. beers page for more information about new beers.

    • Orlison Brewing Co. lives by the motto, “Brew No Evil.” People drink beer to live and to celebrate life, nobody wants a glass filled with bad deeds. Orlison Brewing Co.’s clear lagers represent its good intentions. Its pure ingredients signify honesty toward life's finer moments. Its crisp beers symbolize passion and direction. Orlison's lagers are served cold, which embodies the company’s coolness and poise, while the full-flavored taste of its beers illustrates a full, free spirit and goodwill toward fellow men.

      Plain and simple, Orlison brews beers that make people happy.
    • If you live in Washington State or in the Pacific Northwest, then you’re in luck. Our distributors currently supply the area with Orlison lager, but we're always looking for new towns and cities. While we plan to expand our operation and coverage area soon, we are currently focusing on providing the Pacific Northwest with the best in craft brewed lagers.
    • We sure do! Click on this link to see our current swag offerings: http://craftbrewswag.com/product-category/brewery/orlison-brewing-co/
    • The rise in craft brewed beers and microbreweries have led to an explosion in the availability of unique, flavorful beers. The downside to this lies in the fact that most microbreweries only work with ales because they can be brewed, bottled or canned, and shipped out quickly. While there's nothing wrong with a good ale, crafting a good lager is a true test for any brewery. Lagers have to be fermented at lower temperatures, require the highest quality ingredients and careful attention throughout the brewing process. These factors create the crisp, clear flavors that Orlison Brewing Co. stands for. We don't make lagers because it's easy; we make them because they're hard. Try an Orlison lager today to taste what real brewing is.
    • Let's Talk Beer.

      Orlison Brewing Co. is committed to providing true beer lovers with the best lagers brewed in today’s fast paced beer producing community. From the flavorful Pilsner 37 and Ünderground to our deliciously smooth Havanüther, Orlison Brewing Co. proudly stands behind our line of carefully crafted lagers.
