Remember that first sip of craft beer? How it changed your idea of what could (and should) be? For a lot of people, that beer was a New Belgium brew. Starting with a bike trip through Belgium in 1989, the idealistic Fort Collins, CO brewery began with two recipes, Abbey and Fat Tire. Today they are the third largest craft-brewer in the US, producing over 760,000 barrels, and sends their creations to 31 states. All while maintaining a dedication to craft, quality, and creativity.

We are big fans of New Belgium at Pint Defiance, which is why we are

Brewer's Night with Double Mountain, Wed. Sept 18th, 5-7PM

Hood River has taken a more laid-back approach to brewing than its Oregon bretheren--Bend and Portland--choosing to equally emphasize beer ejoyment and beer crafting. Home to one of the biggest craft breweries, it has incubated many smaller, specialized brew houses including one of the most uncompromising. Choosing the noble hop as its logo, Double Mountain has been churning out quality brews since 2007, with a focus on quality and sustainability. 

Join us Wednesday, September 18th, from 5-7pm as we welcome the Double Mountain crew for pints of deliciously hoppy brews; On tap will be their
