Local Running Races:
Yachats is probably one of my favorite places on the Oregon Coast. I don’t know what it is, but it’s just quaint and feels really relaxing and welcoming. Every time I stop through, I ALWAYS stop at the Yachats Farmstore (though I call it the Yachats Brewery). In addition to their great beers and small tap house, they also have a great food menu, fresh produce, and locally shop-made fermented treats (take a home some of their fantastic sauerkraut varieties or do a sampler tray!). Join them in their taproom open everyday Mon-Thur 11:30am-8:00pm Fri-Sat 11:30am-9:00pm and for Sunday brunch 10:00am-6:00pm.
We spoke with Jenna Steward, Director of Brewery Operations at Yachats Brewing (along with her husband) to get some insight into their brewery and hometown.
Your relationship with the running or fitness community:
We are not big runners, but we are happy to help others carb-load before or after a run with a frosty pint. My husband and I have fat bikes that we like to take down to the beach or by the mountain in some snow.
Recommendations of local running routes:
804 Trail, the Amanda Trail, Cape Perpetua Scenic Trail, Ya’Xaik Trail, Gerdemann Botanic Preserve, and the Oregon Coast Trail (Check this out for details on great trails)
Recommendations of local events or locations:
Fourth of July is probably the biggest event we have here in Yachats. Almost every restaurant in town has a special menu. The town also has a parade called the La De Da parade, which is followed by an amazing fireworks show in the evening. Not to mention, we have lots of awesome beer!
Tell us more!
Charlie, our head brewer/my husband, came from Logsdon Farmhouse Ales, so he loves brewing saisons and farmhouse style beers. We do brew some core American style beers, but we try to keep those in house only. Next month, we hope to start bottling and bottle conditioning our specialty beer series. The first release will be one of our core beers, Cetacea Saison with Szechuan Peppercorns. Most of the next releases on the horizon are barrel fermented and barrel aged with fruit we got from our local forager. The most exciting is our Salal Sour. These beers will be sold in a 500ml bottle only. No kegs.
