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.
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 of 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.

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.
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.
Clem's Gold is a pre-prohibition style lager and an ode to those bygone days where beer was more than just a drink; it was a way of life. This deliciously flavorful lager is brewed with GR Tradition and Perle's hops, an unbeatable combination for creating a bold, crisp flavor with a smooth finish beer lovers will want to try again and again.
Clem's Gold is a well-balanced beer that pairs well with a wide range of food, but is equally enjoyable all by itself. Those who Brew No Evil™ want to share the wealth with you, so pour yourself a glass today.
Lizzy’s Red is a unique blend of ale-style malts, lager yeast and mellow hops designed to create a one-of-a-kind flavor beer lovers everywhere can sit back and appreciate. This blending of brewing materials produces a caramel-like flavor with a clean, crisp finish and a distinctly hearty flavor and stands as an uplifting alternative to the every-day amber ale.
Lizzy’s Red recently won the Gold medal at the 2013 Washington Beer Awards, a title this refreshingly crisp lager certainly deserves.
When it comes down to it, one of the most important aspects behind a good beer is the hops. Orlison Brewing Co. brewmaster Bernie Duenwald knows this, so he created Orlison’s IPL, an India pale lager crafted with more hops than one bottle should be able to contain. Brewed with 9 different hops added in three separate stages and a hefty dose of malt, Orlison’s IPL is a stand-alone powerhouse in the world of craft-brewed pale lagers.
With the flavorful features of an IPA and the clean finish of a lager, Orlison's IPL, is a sessionable beer perfect for lager lovers who know the difference between real flavor and overdoing it.
Brünette is a European-style brown lager that mixes the robust malt character of a British brown mild with the easy finish of a German lager. Through the blending of 5 different malts, this beer features a complex, smooth and highly flavorful body with hints of nut, cocoa and a hint of coffee. With an airy, silky mouthfeel and such an incredibly complimenting series of flavors, Brünette is sure to become your new favorite lager.
Brünette won a bronze medal in the American dark lager category at the 2010 World Beer Cup.
Havanüther, our newest craft lager, is a refreshing take on light pilsners. This clean, clear and creamy lager is brewed for those who are looking for a delicious and satisfying beer that won't fill you up quickly.
Havanüther's light body, combined with an impressively sophisticated mouthfeel and just the right amount of flavor, means it’s the perfect beer for a warm and relaxing summer day.
Ünderground is a view into Orlison's darker side. Brewed with ample amounts of roast barley and black malt, this is a truly unique stout lager.
This 6.2% ABV lagers full, slightly opaque tan head releases its powerful flavor. This stout distinguishes itself from the everyday, run-of-the-mill beer through sheer tenacity and originality. Stop drinking beer in the light. Go Ünderground and enjoy the dark.
