Naked City Brewery

We Love Craft Beer.

Naked City Brewery is a small craft brewery influenced by Northwest beer culture and the great beer traditions of the world. Founded in late 2009, Naked City brews a variety of styles, and believes in quality ingredients and a hands-on approach in every aspect of the process.

Naked City's standard ales include Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands (Blond-on-Blonde Ale), Betsy's Mountain (Brown Ale), Pinkerton Porter, Screening Room (Northwest Red Ale), and Brute Force IPA. We also brew a wide variety of seasonal and special beers available at the pub.

Naked City's barrel-aging program now includes fifteen wet bourbon and wine barrels filled with dark, sweet, and hoppy elixirs, plus one little vinegar barrel for Chef Tessa's beer vinaigrette.

On the morning of the brew day for Boo Radley pumpkin ale, Don rises early to carve and roast fresh pumpkins for tossing into the mash tun. We use fresh cocoa nibs in our chocolate beers and roasted local chiles in our chile beer. Naked City Sudden Impact Coffee IPA gets its strong roasted coffee aroma from fresh, local Delano's Coffee.
