WTF is an Ale Apothecary? By definition, an apothecary is a drugstore. This kick-ass pharmacist methodically uses age-old brewing techniques blended with modern procedures.
Do you have a kids menu, pizza, and cocktails? Move along, there are plenty of other brew pubs made just for you in Central Oregon.
It’s so cold and lonely at home, can I come over, and pop a squat? No sir, this is a straight up brewery, and if there were such a thing as a  Steam Punk Brewery, this would be it.
Got any tips? Join the “Ale Club”!
Walk, bike, or drive? Bike, or drive, but make sure to call ahead – visitation is limited, and by invitation only.
Last one – Is there like a locals night or something? Nope – but your best bet would be to live in the neighborhood and hope for a block party! ;^)

Est. 2012 – The mountain brewer.

Paul Arney was a brewer for Deschutes for six years, but he wanted to do things his own way. When he set out on his own, he told an interviewer: “My plan is to utilize a very small home-built brewery to develop a beer that has existed in my mind only.  Develop a process that produces the desired flavor profile, and then, build a brewery around the process. We will not be brewing to satisfy bulk consumption.” Now, in his 500-square-foot garage brewery, he is developing such beers as the unique Sahalie by fermenting them entirely in wood. To Arney, beer as art is clearly a labor of love.
