Our Values

At River Time Brewing, we begin our staff meetings with a restatement of our core values – the principles for our business that guide the decisions we make.

We distilled these values from our time in Darrington, and our different walks of life, taking a serious look at what we wanted to build with this business. Much of this was formed in our early days, out on the river, in the wake of the tragic Oso slide. We may not all be Darrington “Locals”, but we love this community and are proud to be a part of it.

Our values are:

Build Community

We strive to create an inclusive environment where neighbors, friends and visitors can meet, be comfortable, and talk to each other. So many communities have nowhere for people to simply meet with each other, with their kids and families, and engage in camaraderie, discuss local issues and events, and feel part of something larger.

Be a Good Corporate Citizen

River Time aims to give back to the community when we can, where we can, and how we can. To us that means things like paying fair wages, buying local, and helping our communities with events, tourism, and sometimes even getting our tools out to pitch in.

Have Fun

Finally, we want to have fun with what we do. Our desire is to create an environment where we enjoy working, and where our customers enjoy spending time. If we aren’t having fun, we shouldn’t be doing this, so come and have fun with us!

When you visit River Time, you should expect to engage with others from all walks of life (and likely their children), and enjoy your time here. River Time is not a place to hide in the corner, get drunk, be belligerent or be abusive – we won’t tolerate that.

If you support and exhibit our values, we will be happy to welcome you into our home.
