2018 Washington Large Brewery of the Year

Click the video above to learn more about us.

Fermentation is a great passion of ours.

We moved into our warehouse brewery space in Bellingham, Washington in October of 2013 to express this passion through craft beer. We are a small, family-run team, completely focused on quality, our environment, and connecting with the local community. We celebrate and produce traditional styles, while simultaneously blurring guidelines by exploring mixed fermentations, blending, and barrel aging through our evolving Wander Barrel Project.

We were born and raised in the Midwest, met at the University of Iowa many years ago, and have spent a large portion of our shared life traveling and exploring the world. Chad, an industrial engineer by degree, attended the American Brewer’s Guild in 2011 before working at Hilliard’s Beer in Seattle, Washington. Colleen spent many years working for global health nonprofit organizations before focusing solely on the business side of Wander Brewing. Wandering has allowed us to explore the unexpected in life. The culture of our brewery is guided by the people and landscapes encountered during these experiences. Wandering teaches us that not all creatures follow the same path, uniqueness is good, and some of the richest life lessons come from the most unexpected places.

The paper airplane in our logo embodies the spirit of our lives and our beers. Each paper airplane’s design, journey, and end point is unique, and that is a wonderful thing. This philosophy is entwined in our culture and the beers that we produce.

We hope that you enjoy our beer as much as we passionately enjoy creating it for you.

What’s on Tap?

Tap list picture updated on 12/23/19. Our tap lineup can change from day to day but it is updated here at least once a week. We also always have a nitro tap, cider, and non alcoholic options available. Cans, bottles, crowlers, and growlers are available to go. If you think this image is pretty great, you should see it in person.  Come down to the brew hall for a pint or two.


Built in a historic building in downtown Bellingham, our all-ages Brew Hall has plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.  Plant your bike on our large outdoor bike rack, grab a pint, and have a great time.  Free parking on the south (limited) and east sides of the building.

Our award-winning Wander Barrel Project beers are individual expressions of our brewer’s ingenuity as they blend yeast, bacteria, and a variety of barrels within the confines of our brewery warehouse. Nearly 100 wooden barrels fill our space, ranging in size from small 8-gallon rye whiskey barrels to our 620-gallon American oak foeder. The previous lives of our barrels help to guide their new life as part of our barrel project producing beers ranging in style from our Great American Beer Festival® Gold medal-winning chardonnay barrel-aged Wild Warehouse, to our Brussels Beer Challenge silver medal-winning Fruit Puncheon, to our bourbon barrel-aged Emissary Imperial Stout. Wander Barrel Project release schedules vary from year to year and are not dictated by the calendar but instead by the contents of the barrels. We allow the beer to tell us when it is ready.

Community Tuesday Program at Wander Brewing

  • On the third Tuesday of every month, Wander Brewing supports a non-profit organization.
  • $1 from all pint sales goes to the designated organization.
  • We hope that representation from the organization can be at the brewery between 3pm and 9pm on the day of the event to meet customers and explain the work of their organization.
  • Please bring any marketing information to help people learn about your organization (pamphlets, stickers, banners, etc.).
  • Wander Brewing will post on social meeting the day before the event. If the organization creates a Facebook event page, please consider inviting Wander Brewing to co-host the event so that it will be seen by our supporters as well.
  • Must be a tax designated charity or registered non-profit.
  • Local organizations are prioritized.


  • This is a partnership between a nonprofit organization and Wander Brewing. This is not an event for a private individual to fundraise on behalf of an organization.
  • This is not the hiring of the Wander Brewing Brew Hall by the organization – it is a joint event and the tasting room remains open to the public.
  • We request the designated organization markets the event to encourage attendance from their supporters. The more people attend, the more we raise for your organization!
  • As a general principle, only one night per organization per year.
  • All decisions and conclusions are at the sole discretion of Wander Brewing.


To submit a request for a Community Tuesday at Wander Brewing, please click the button below and fill out our quick form. If selected, your organization will be contacted by a representative of Wander Brewing. Please limit your submission for consideration to no more than once per year. Submission does not guarantee selection.
