In the small world of online beer message boards there are a few breweries that have been vaulted to mythical status due to the hype surrounding their beers. Hill Farmstead on the east coast and Cantillon in Belgium are the first two that come to mind. There is another brewery located in the Pacific Northwest that is quickly gaining the momentum to be on that list. de Garde Brewing in Tillamook Ore.
de Garde Brewing is located in the tiny town of Tillamook, Ore. It has only been brewing commercially for around two years now, but excellence knows no age. Brewing partners Trevor Rogers and Linsey Hamacher opened up de Garde in the form of a 7bbl system brewery.
