Sipping - and electric-bike-cruising - through downtown Wenatchee has never been easier.
The local winery, brewery, and cidery scene in Wenatchee is thriving and an electric bike tour through the historic, charming downtown district puts you at so many fun stops to try locally crafted drinks, play games and explore. It winds through the Apple Capital Loop trail, with art installations, river and mountain views galore.
The Taproom by Hellbent Brewing: Start right on the river, in the heart of Wenatchee at Pybus Public Market. Hellbent Brewing offers 20 beers on tap and a food menu with seasonal, fresh ingredients.
Columbia Valley Brewing: Hop on your bike and take just a 4-minute ride through Wenatchee Riverfront Park. Columbia Valley Brewing is Wenatchee’s first brewery and boasts the closest patio to the river trail.
Wenatchee Valley Brewing Co.: Just a mere block away is Wenatchee Valley Brewing Co. Try local high-quality craft brews like the Mission Ridge IPA or the Tour de Bloom Hazy Pale Ale. Anybody who rides a bike to the brewery gets a 15% discount.
Tap and Putt: A 5-minute ride will deliver you to this fun 9-hole mini golf course and bar experience. Grab a craft cider or beer and mix some competitive spirit into your tour with a round of shuffleboard, darts or one of the arcade games.
Watermill Winery on the Ave: Just 0.2 miles down Wenatchee Ave is Watermill. This brand-new, gorgeously designed tasting room offers Malbecs, Merlots, Chardonnays and more from the Walla Walla Valley.
Watercore Cider: One block down and you’ll reach Watercore Cider. Local, tree ripened water cored apples produce flavor-forward, complex ciders without the need for any added sugar or commercial juice. Hop in the tasting room for small-batch ciders like the Daydreamer, as well as pie.
OFF THE HILL: You’ll end your tour back in Pybus Public Market at the OFF THE HILL tasting room, serving artisan, small batch wines and ciders from Stemilt Creek Winery and Archibald James Wine and Cider. The two businesses produce side-by-side on Stemilt Hill in Wenatchee. Fun fact: Stemilt Creek’s owners are fourth generation farmers that have been growing fruit in the area since 1893.
