Inside Scoop on the New Dru Bru in Cle Elum

Far from the city, in the embrace of nature, surrounded by friends and family—life in Suncadia has its own charms, with every day bringing new discoveries, explorations and celebrations. But at the end of each day, there’s nothing quite like getting together with friends over a pint (or two!)

Which is why Suncadia has partnered with acclaimed local craft brewery Dru Bru (of Snoqualmie fame) to make your sunset happy hours even happier. As part of our efforts to support local businesses, we’ve collaboratively created the popular Windy Shot India Pale Ale, and planned a massive canning event for this IPA on the 17th of March.

In case you can’t wait that long, you can now can enjoy an assortment of Dru Bru’s award-winning beers, ciders, and house made non-alcoholic sodas in the comfort of your home, at Suncadia’s dining venues, and, if you’re feeling adventurous, at the recently opened Dru Bru location in Cle Elum. This large space, which is home to a 20-tap, all-ages taproom as well as a production warehouse, offers indoor seating enhanced by contemporary European-influenced décor, and al fresco tables looking out over the majestic Cascades. Drafts, cans, bottles, growlers and kegs-to-go are all on the menu, as are sandwiches, salads, and wraps from Stella’s and wood fired pies from Swift Fired Pizza—the perfect bites to go with your brews.

No matter what you’re in the mood for, Dru Bru’s offerings will quench your thirst—be it the pilsners, lagers and pale ales available year-round, to the limited release German and winter ales, and even the dark and sour ales. The taproom will also soon introduce an innovative tribute to the Cascades, the ‘Cle Elum Classic’, so keep your eye out for this special brew in and around Suncadia!

Dru Bru’s Cle Elum location also offers avid brewmasters and amateur crafters the chance to enjoy private brewery tours. The space is evolving and expanding, and the end of the year will unveil a larger production facility and tap room, ready to serve all of Cle Elum. If you’re planning to drop by for a pint, please note that Dru Bru is obeying and enforcing all of the state’s current COVID-19 guidelines. Don’t forget your mask, keep your distance, and limit your group size.
