A happy hour event to support wild salmon and steelhead featuring Westland Distillery Whiskey, Fremont Brewing and Stoup Brewing craft beer, and a chance to win Filson gear!

WWT is a nonprofit that protects and restores streamflows in salmon-critical waterways across the state. Mainstem Malt supplies craft brewers, distillers and bakers with top-shelf "Malt that Matters," premium grains that require little to no water to grow.

Spring is the season of Renewal and Invention, and that’s cool with Fremont, so we decided to offer not one, but three different beers for our Spring Seasonal this year. The final beer in our Spring Seasonal series is Parkland Pils, a crisp pilsner to welcome the coming sun and warm days. We first brewed this beer to drink after working a shift at the brewery and kept brewing it because, well, we work a lot of shifts and need a lot of beer. And we thought this pilsner was really good, and we brewed some to share with you. Parkland is brewed with German malts and Yakima Valley hops. “There’s a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.” – Steven Wright
