Remlinger Farms Brewery hosts pitcher-perfect grand opening

After pandemic delays, Remlinger family welcomes community to new brewery.

Remlinger Farms Brewery in Carnation held its official grand opening with the SnoValley and Carnation Chambers of Commerce on Sept. 8, celebrating the space’s first few months in operation.

The brewery is the nearly 60-year-old farm’s newest venture, being led by Gary Remlinger’s grandson and the farm’s executive director, Nathan Sherfey.

The Remlingers planned to open the new space last summer, but faced pandemic-related supply chain delays. Since a soft opening this spring, and an official opening this June, the new venture has gone off without a hitch.

The brewery features 20 different rotating beers, ciders and non-alcoholic beers on tap. All drinks are brewed on site and many contain fruit grown on the farm. Everything not grown on site is local to Washington.

Sherfey said the brewery is also planning to introduce canned beer and new seltzers.

Both the Carnation and SnoValley Chambers are hopeful that the brewery can serve as a community gathering space and help draw more visitors to Valley businesses.

“I know this is something you’ve been dying to get open for the last year and a half and I’m so excited it finally happened,” former Carnation Mayor Kim Lisk said at the event. “This is a great edition to Carnation.”

The brewery will host an OktoberFest from 10 a.m. to 6, on Sept. 17 and Sept. 18. A Fall Harvest festival will be held on the weekends from Sept. 24 to Oct. 30.
