As legend goes, Rube Waddell wrestled alligators in the circus during baseball’s off-season. Waddell is also the inspiration for many of the brewery’s beer monikers: the South Paw Pale Ale (he was left-handed); the Fireman’s Amber Ale (he was known for saving people from burning buildings); and the Alligator Stout (the aforementioned gator wrestling).

We are a family-owned craft brewery founded in 2009 to brew artisan beers made with the best local ingredients we can find … Because Beer Matters!
Where the Gifford Pinchot National Forest meets the Carson valley, you will find us busily brewing craft beers from the best ingredients found in the Northwest. Backwoods Brewing was founded in July of 2012, by the Waters family. Jim Waters, father of brewers Kevin and Tom, had taught his sons the art of home brewing before they left for college at Eastern Washington University. Many beer batches and napkin doodles later, with a can-do attitude and some carpentry know-how, the Waters saw their dream of opening a brewery finally come to life.
