About Us

We are passionate about brewing high quality handcrafted beer inspired by the Pacific Northwest that we call home.


About Vashon Brewing

Vashon Brewing started in 2011 when founder and brewmaster, Cliff Goodman, left his 19 year daily ferry commute and accounting career for a full time life of brewing handcrafted beer on his beloved Vashon Island. We are passionate about brewing high quality craft beer inspired by the Pacific Northwest. We use locally sourced barley, seasonal fruits, and other ingredients in our brews. We also use 100% malted barley, adding a fermentation enzyme to reduce the gluten to less than 10 ppm. This makes our beer accessible to gluten intolerant customers without changing any of the traditional flavors or ingredients in the beer!

In May 2018 we opened our first retail space—Vashon Brewing Community Pub! Located right off the main highway, this is a welcoming place for everyone to enjoy not only our craft beer, but other island made beverages such as wine, cider & kombucha—as well as pub bites that change with the seasons to keep it interesting and always delicious. Family friendly, and plenty of outdoor seating and fun games to play. Come be part of our community :).
