Our final Day Hike Brand Ambassador is Loomis Hamilton! We’re thrilled to have his native Seattle perspective on old stomping grounds and new favorites!

From Loomis:
Having lived here for my entire 28-ish years, I wish I could say that I have been exploring for just as long, but I started a couple of years ago. I actually started hiking to take pictures of beer! I was able to make it to the top of Mount Si thanks to the help of a kind lady who gave me some of her energy beans and a granola bar. That kindness and feeling of achievement from reaching the top got me hooked. I have since found that the nicest people in our state are hikers. I would guess this is due to the fact that any time with nature is better than the best day at a desk. I have long appreciated the beauty of Washington state, but never knew what I’d take away from exploring it up close. I am now obsessed with finding obscure places that look like they should be on postcards and sharing them through the lens of my camera.

I firmly believe that every hiker needs a beer or three at their final destination. I will never consider myself to be an ultralight backpacker, because beer is a necessity. My girlfriend and I have spent the better part of the last year getting out to any hike-able mountain lakes and peaks that we can find. We started backpacking late last summer, and I have spent every moment since the weather turned bad in October like a guy in a full-body cast just itching to get out.

We have a big trip through the Enchantments to start the summer, and then we will be bouncing all over Washington and Oregon in search of new places. My Summer 2017 bucket list includes the Ozette Triangle, Cascade Pass and Sahale Arm, and Enchanted Valley out on the Olympic Peninsula.


Beer and outdoor fans, meet our second Day Hike Brand Ambassador: Christina Hickman! A longtime fan of Two Beers Brewing Co., Christina remembers when The Woods was next door to our current space, serving frozen pizza alongside tasty beer to happy guests. We’re looking forward to seeing all of her adventures in the woods this summer.

From Christina:
I moved out to Seattle from Massachusetts 3 years ago for grad school. Like many East Coast transplants, I quickly became enamored with the big beauty of the PNW–massive mountains, sea stacks on the coast, old-growth forest with its Dr. Seuss-like moss and towering trees, unbelievably turquoise alpine lakes, and even the looming threat of the beloved active volcanoes. It was all so different and exciting, and I wanted to be surrounded by it all as often as possible.

In the time I’ve been here, I’ve logged about 1,500 miles of state & national park/forest trail in WA, OR, and B.C., Canada. Even though I spend about half of my time hiking solo, I’ve found such an inspiring and positive community of hikers here in the PNW. My favorite hiking and adventure buddy is my fianc, Dan. We love planning our trips to involve a post-hike stop at a local brewery (and if we can’t, we pack something for the top). Fun fact: Two Beers was one of the very first breweries we visited after we moved out here (though, as some of you may remember, it was not nearly as spacious as The Woods is now)! I am fully committed to conserving and creating better access to our public lands, and helping to educate newer hikers along the way.

Even though I didn’t get Enchantments, Mount St. Helens, or Wonderland Trail permits, I still hope to do all three, via thru-hiking and day-of walk ups. Some other hikes on my must-do list for the summer include: Goat Rocks, Sahale Arm, Tuck & Robin Lakes, Del Campo, Sourdough Mountain, and a bunch of old stand-bys, road trips & car camping. I try to get on the trail at least twice a week! If you see me, say hi! You can also follow along on my Instagram, @hichristinamarie. Cheers!


Day Hike Summer Ale is back and so are our brand ambassadors! We’re looking forward to sharing all of their amazing trail reports and photos this summer.

First up, meet Brandon and Rachel with Beers at the Bottom! They’re a writing and photography team focusing on pairing Pacific Northwest trails and ales. Both lifelong Washingtonians, they grew up hiking and camping, and enjoy sharing their love of the outdoors. Their first book, ‘Beer Hiking Pacific Northwest,’ is scheduled for a 2017 release. Follow them on Instagram and Facebook.

Beers at the Bottom is hoping to spend most of the summer hiking up in the North Cascades, hitting trails like Ptarmigan Ridge, Hannegan Pass, and Maple Pass Loop. Their favorite Two Beers brews are Wonderland Trail IPA, Cold Brew Coffee Brown Ale, and of course Day Hike Summer Ale.

Their advice for new adventurers is to hit the trail prepared. Check Washington Trails Association for current trip reports on trail conditions, and always pack the ten essentials. With the increase of boots on the trail, crowded hikes are becoming the norm in the Seattle area— head north or east for some awesome mountain views and a bit more solitude.


SEATTLE (May 10, 2017) – Two Beers Brewing Co is excited to mark the return of hiking season with the release of its Day Hike Summer Ale! A crisp summer ale with 4.1% ABV and 45 IBUs, Day Hike offers hints of lemon and grapefruit with a subtle hop bite, making this seasonal a great addition to your day pack, and perfect for enjoying at the top of a hard earned summit. To be released at The Woods tasting room on Thursday, May 11, Day Hike will be available on draft and in six-pack boxes with a new look – but same great beer – through the end of August.

“Everyone at the brewery lives for the summer and the chance to get outdoors – it’s what we do,” said Joel VandenBrink, founder & CEO of Two Beers Brewing Co. “This beer is our ode to that. The chance to spend a Sunday up in the mountains. And at the end, there’s nothing like pulling a Day Hike or two out of your pack to enjoy with friends.”

With six-packs available for purchase to go, Day Hike will also be available on tap with three limited edition infusions: Tangerine, Double Dry Hopped with Citra and Mango. Try all four in a special Day Hike flight!

In addition to 12 taps of beer and 12 taps of cider, The Woods tasting room is the perfect place to grab all you need for the perfect day hike or overnight. Pick up a six-pack, a Discovery Pass, hiking books, dog leashes, Stanley growlers and more. The Woods also acts as a hub for Back40 Outfitters – a Seattle-based rental company with kits packed with all the essentials you need for backpacking and camping – who will be onsite beginning at 5pm on May 11 with their backpacking kits to answer questions about gear, hikes, rental procedures and more.
