The Closer Pale Ale

This NW style IPA Brewed with an abundance of Mosaic, Amarillo and Simcoe hops give this beer a  bold citrusy hop character and Aroma. Finished with 8 lbs of dry hops, this IPA will leave you asking for Uno Mas.

Award Winning

Apricot Cream Ale

Light, crisp ale finished with a mellow hint of apricot. Bronze medal winner at the 2o16 Great American Beer Festival for American Style Fruit Beer.

Vertigo Taproom Seasonal Beers

Harvest Hefe

IBUs: 17 | ABV : 5.3%

Our delicious Harvest Hefe subtracts the raspberries from our best-selling Razz Wheat and spices things up with Hefe. If you love our delicious fruit ale, but would like to try it year-round without the fruit — this is your beer.

Schwindel Alt

IBUs: 25 | ABV: 5.3%

Our Northern German Altbier recipe is carefully brewed and lagered at colder temperatures for a smooth, clean taste.

Left, Nut Brown

IBUs: 27 | ABV: 7.1%

Good Things are better during the right season. It is spring/summer and the [left] Nut Brown season has passed. Our Winter Warmer, our American brown ale is brewed with Golden Promise base malt for the nutty character, tempered with an abundance of Crystal 120L, Munich and chocolate malts to give it a malty richness. Northern Brewer and Mt Hood hop additions balance the nutty, malty profile. The kicker is the five pounds of honey per barrel to finish the flavor.

Vertigo Taproom Series Beers


IBUs: 50 | ABV : TBD

Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout. We are getting ready to brew this bad boy again, so stay tuned. Dude will Abide! Aging for six months in a Big Bottom Whiskey Barrel, this dark full-bodied stout absorbs maximum amounts of bourbon character and flavor. Rich and smooth, the “SuperDude!” is our best stout yet.

Tropical Heatwave Blonde

IBUs: 15 | ABV: 5.1%

Scoville Heat Index: Brutal!

Our “Tropical Blonde” with a kick; the key lime tropical flavor infused with habanero chili heat. More than a subtle spice, a flavorful burn. On its own or in a blend (try the Razz or Arctic Blast) to tone down the heat. Consume at your own risk.
