Find Out What's
At Trails End we brew to the German Purity Laws. What does that mean?
German Purity Laws
As one of the oldest food laws on record, the German Purity Laws of 1516 (Reinheitsgebot) intended to keep the integrity of beer intact at a time when anything and everything could be thrown into a beer. Nowadays, the laws serve as a reminder of what the four true ingredients of beer are: water, malted barley, hops and yeast. So why does this matter? At Trails End Brewing, you won’t find anything else but these four ingredients in our beers. We believe these laws are worth celebrating, and we strive to be consistently creative and innovative within the frameworks of these laws. Our beers are classically inspired, unfiltered, and as true to style as you will find outside of Germany.
Trail End Flagships
All items are subject to change*
1. RIGHT AS RAIN - GOLDEN ALE
4.2% 20 IBU
This light beer is inspired by the feeling of being outdoors, doing whatever you love that puts you in that “everything is right as rain” headspace. This beer is a simple, classic beer that is right as rain.
2. MR. BLUE SKY - ESB
4.8% 25 IBU
Sun is shining, not a cloud in sight, a far cry from the origins of this style. Widely consumed in dark pubs of the rainy UK and known as a “pint of bitter”, our ESB is what you need in that backyard, on the boat, or anything under the sun.
3. BUMPIN BILLs PILS - Bavarian style Pilsner
5% 30 IBU
The sun is shining, and you both have your favorite hats on. You just went on a killer hike and want to toast with a cold beer and a kiss, but…oops! You both tilt right, then you both tilt left. The laughter is contagious as you are just bumping bills!
4. CREEK HOPPIN' - WEST COAST IPA
6.2% 65 IBU
When you’re out on the trail and happen upon a creek, you can’t just cross it…. you have to HOP it! Our Creek Hoppin’ IPA is a perfect blend of grapefruit and pine resin combined with the fruitiness of berries and tangerine. The IBU’s may seem low, but it has a wonderful pronounced bitterness that lingers like a mountain stream.
5. "Scenic Byway - Juicy IPA"
5.8% 30 IBU
Reminiscent of road trips along Hwy 20 through the Cascades The endless waterfalls leave you desiring a Juicy IPA like this one. Our Juicy is bursting with notes of honeydew melon, guava and watermelon. It’s crushable, tropical and a perfect blend of Idaho 7 and El Dorado hops.
6. Alpine haze - hazy ipa
6.4% 30 IBU
Waking up to the misty haze of a high Alpine lake. The first to wake up and start a fire. The first to grab a beer from the cooler, if they please. With the loads of orange and tangerine notes, this could pass for breakfast. Who needs OJ….?
7. EDELWEISS - BAVARIAN PALE ALE
5.5% 38 IBU
Known as the official flower of the Alps, the Edelweiss grows in the highest altitudes and most rugged terrain a climber can find, which is why the flower has such a deep meaning for passion, dedication and courage. Inspired by this rare flower, we created a deceivingly simple pale ale using all German ingredients. Pilsner malt as the base, and Mandarina Bavaria hops to impart the subtle tangerine notes, all balanced with our house German ale yeast. Like the unique alpine flower, this one is worth the trek!
8. Muddy Paws - german Altbier
5.2% 30 IBU
Hiking with your four-legged friend is seriously the best thing ever. And when they get mud and dirt all over the place, who can stay mad at that face? Our NW inspired Altbier tries to capture that. Deep brown color, solid malt backbone, Willamette hops that smell like fresh rain in the woods. And a beer that reminds you to relax and chill. After all, it’s just muddy paws dude.
9. CHAR FALLS - porter
4.9% 35 IBU
Like the waterfall tucked back in the coniferous forest of the Kanisku, our Char Falls Porter is a special find. You won’t find the big in-your-face notes of most dark beers. This beer is smooth, drinkable, and has soft notes of chocolate and toffee with a deep mahogany hue.
10. DIRT IN THE TREAD – STOUT
7% 40 IBU
Cruising on dirt mountain roads, you break for a stretch. While enjoying the views you notice the way the sun is shining on the tires revealing a hypnotizing pattern of dirt
that has sprayed perfectly from the tread. And then, just like that, Boom! Dirt in the Tread. A beer is named

11. KŌKUA – SESSION IPA
4.6% 20 IBU
One beer, brewed by many, to support those affected by the Maui wildfires
Trails End Brewery has joined over 600 Breweries around the world in helping to make a beer to support the victims of the Maui Wildfires. This Session IPA is full of fresh mango and starfruit aroma and a light enough body to capture the remaining days of warm weather. Proceeds from this beer will go to The Kōkua Project, which means “Extending Help to Others”, and supports efforts to rebuild Maui from within. Raise a pint, and let’s show Maui some Idaho love.
12. "Field Party" Festbier
5% 25 IBU
Field Party (noun): a kegger held in a field after a fall harvest in the Midwest. Festbier (noun): a beer brewed historically for fall wedding or party in Germany during Oktoberfest
The beautiful fall weather of the panhandle has our Head Brewer missing his Wisconsin home. Wanting to bring a little of it here for you, he created Field Party Festbier, a traditional German Oktoberfest-style beer for those perfect warm days and frosty nights. Prost!
13. Dark Munich Lager
5.2% 20 IBU
Inspired by his first ever elk hunt in Idaho in the St. Joe River Valley, our Head Brewer made this Dark Munich Lager ready to enjoy for the hunting season. A dark, ruby toned hue paves the way for a slight malt sweetness alongside a deep bready aroma that round out this classic style. No frills here; just a solid drinking beer.
14. BACKROADS - SMOKED HELLES LAGER
4.4% 18 IBU
2023 GOLD MEDAL WINNER – Best of Craft Beer Awards – Bend, Oregon
We all grew up with them. They’re those roads that seem to travel back in time and remind us all to slow down just a bit. And we hope this beer does just that. Inspired by a nearly- forgotten style, Backroads is a light body, clear and crisp, patio-pounding lager with just the slightest hint of smoke. It’s a subtle, yet balanced approach to a style rarely found outside of East Germany.taproom
15. 2023 FRESH HOP AZZACCA
TRAIL OPENS SAT OCT 7TH
This year’s Fresh Hop IPA features Azacca Hops from Roy Farms in Moxie, WA. Every year we arrive at the farm at 8 am, grab 300 pounds of freshly picked hops that were picked that morning, and get them back to CDA for this special beer. Fresh hop IPAs are meant to capture the very essence of a hop, and boy does ours! Notes of fresh chopped peaches and nectarines help to showcase the beautiful Azacca hop and all its tropical goodness. And a special thanks to the crew at Roy Farms for their hard work and dedication. We couldn’t have this beer without you!
16. BREAKFAST BEER – DRY HOPPED PILSNER
4.6% 32 IBU
One of the perks of camp breakfast is, well, breakfast beer. That ice cold, crisp can floating in the half-melted ice, as the sun goes from bright to warm. Our dry hopped pilsner is perfect for just that occasion. Low alcohol, fruit and berry notes in the aroma from the mosaic hops, and a crushable body that begs the question, did you bring enough?
