Specialty & Limited Release
Sunriver Brewing Company’s craft beer represents the best of what Oregon has to offer. Our talented head brewer, Brett Thomas, prides himself on making the highest quality beer. Since 2010, Brett’s well-balanced beers have garnered him 10 national awards, including three silver and two bronze medals at the NABA (North American Beer Awards) and consecutive gold medals at the GABF (Great American Beer Festival).
Brett is a 2010 Falconer Foundation scholarship recipient and a 2011 graduate of the American Brewers Guild with a degree in Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering. His diverse brewing prowess can be tasted in his technical beers like our Lazy River Lager, Fuzztail Hefeweizen and SUP Seasonal Ale which are actually tougher to brew since they can’t hide behind deep flavor characteristics. Don’t let that shade the fact that he is awesome at brewing bigger, hoppy and complex beers. Hence his Gold Medal at the GABF for oak-aged barley wine in 2012.
