OSB was a big winner at the 2014 Washington Beer Awards taking GOLD for Renegade IPA and BRONZE for Ruud Awakening IPA !! Woo-hoo !!
OSB's newest beer on tap is a collaboration, Biggie Smalz Session IPA, a joint creation between Black Raven Brewing Company and OSB, the BIG and SMALL breweries of the year at the 2013 Washington Beer Awards. This IPA is big on hops and small on alcohol. It showcases the recently released Equinox hops and features floral and tropical fruit aromas. It has a strong bitterness with flavors of pine, citrus, and sweet caramel. Biggie Smalz will also be featured at the Winthrop Hop Rendezvous Brewfest in Winthrop on Saturday, June 21st.
OSB has been honored this award season with gold for both the Brewer's Reserve Imperial Stout and Uncle Big's Brown at the North American Brewer's Association beer competition in June 2014. OSB's Ruud Awakening IPA was also recently named in "The 20 Best American IPAs" by Hi Consumption.
We have a great brew team and are excited about these new honors. Awesome job, Kyle & Nick!
At our small brewery, we strive to create microbrews that satisfy both the discerning hop heads and those who prefer a lighter taste. Unique to Winthrop, we are fortunate to be provided with chlorine-free water flowing from the pristine North Cascade mountains. This clean, uncontaminated water helps enhance the natural flavors of the malts and hops bringing you a superior beer drinking experience.

Our Brewer's Reserve series has been extremely popular. We are brewing these big beers in our larger capacity fermenters, as well as our most popular beer, the Ruud Awakening IPA. The Barley Wine Style Ale and the Imperial Stout are sealed in wax and better when allowed to age. We recently won a gold Medal at the North American Brewer's Association for our Brewer's Reserve Impeial Stout.
