Oregon has more than 200 breweries across the state that produce craft beers of all varieties. One of these is Chetco Brewing Company in Brookings, on the southern coast just a short drive from the California border. This small-town brewpub offers a wide selection of handcrafted beers to choose from, as well as Oregon wines, weekly live music, trivia nights, and on-site food trucks serving a variety of cuisine.
Chetco Brewing Company takes pride in brewing quality, vegan beer with no additives, extracts, or artificial flavors. Their extensive menu includes wheats, pale ales, and ambers, brown ales, reds, porters, and stouts, a few lagers, and a wide selection of IPAs. Get your favorite brew by the pint, half-pint, filled in a growler to-go, or even in a half-barrel keg.
Those looking for a bite to eat can find delicious offerings from their partner food trucks. Off The Wagon is the current truck on-site with a variety of appetizers and vegetarian-friendly entrees. On the menu you’ll find the Beyond Burger, Beyond Sausage, a club sandwich, enchilada casserole, and Tempeh Tacos, just to name a few.
The brewery is currently open for take-out orders only, and outdoor dining when the weather permits. Get a growler filled to-go or pick up one of their four-packs to enjoy at home. Chetco Brewing Company is located right off Highway 101 at 830 Railroad St in Brookings. To learn more, visit their website and follow them on Facebook.
