You have a Choice

Beer is big business around the world. With Budweiser being a Belgian-owned company attempting to trick you into believing it represents the USA, and now a new Guinness brewery on the east coast, it can be difficult to tell where you money is going.

What you can be certain of is that seeing the Independent Craft Beer seal on a product means that the beer is made HERE in the USA, by an Independent company owned HERE in the USA.

Look for the seal, and support beer made here, by people who live here. You have over 6000 Independent Breweries to choose from, and River Time is one of them.

One thing we are in agreement with is what Guinness says on their web site:

“The U.S. is the world’s epicenter of beer innovation. American brewers excel at re-interpreting traditional styles and creating new ones. “

2018 Commemorative Glass!

The 2018 Commemorative Glass (4th in the series) will be available for sale, beginning Friday, August 31st! As the name states, it is “appropriate” that it is a Mason jar!

Even if you haven’t been collecting the series, this is one worth having around for your favorite beverage! Straying from the rest of the series and our standard glasses, this one is laser etched to allow the artwork to stretch completely around the glassware. This gives a unique ‘sparkle’ effect to the words and logo.

River Time – always Beer At An Appropriate Pace!

Our New Brewer!


Many of you have heard already, but we’ve officially promoted “The Local”, Taylor, to the position of Assistant Brewer. Taylor still works hard to serve you beers and food in the brewery, but when we are closed to the public, you can find her working with Neil crafting new beers. Their first collaborations (named by Taylor) are on tap now. While they remain, come in and try The RaspBeery and the Wheet Wheet.

International Beer Day

August 3, 2018 is International Beer Day!


“The purpose of IBD is threefold:

  • To gather with friends and enjoy the deliciousness that is beer.
  • To celebrate the dedicated men and women who brew and serve our beer.
  • To bring the world together by celebrating the beers of all nations and cultures on this one remarkable day.

Raise your glass to celebrate the heroes behind each tasty brew. Cheers and Happy International Beer Day!”

These are all great purposes which we happily embrace! Come and celebrate with us!


Darrington Welcomes You!

There are some changes afoot at the brewery these days. Continual improvement mostly, but worth noting as we continue on our journey. The sign you see above is a gift from the town, and will likely become a part of our beer garden in the future.

Beer garden you might wonder? But it’s small? True fact, but in case you haven’t heard, we acquired the lot behind the brewery for expansion. It will take time, but we hope to turn it into a relaxing place to kick your feet up with a brew!

Also of note this week, we picked up an air conditioner. It’s not cold in the brewery by any means, but much more comfortable. No more sweating while enjoying your River Time beers!
