Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Old Schoolhouse On The Fly

Beer flights in TacomaCasey and Laura Ruud purchased the floundering Winthrop brewery in 2008, changed the name to Old Schoolhouse Brewery, cleaned it up, and quickly turned it into an award-winning gem of a brewpub. Life happens, and the Ruud’s sold the brewery to three gentlemen who grew up in New Hampshire together, brothers Nathan and Jacob Young and Troy Anderson. Jacob and Nathan knew restaurants and bars inside and out. Troy coached high school track with Jacob, and worked at Microsoft with Nathan. All three enjoy the outdoors, which is almost mandatory since the riverside brewery and gastropub is in Winthrop, which sits east of Mazama and north of Twisp in Okanogan County. The pandemic forced Old Schoolhouse to can, and Tacoma has enjoyed a steady stream of delicious Old schoolhouse beer from the Peaks & Pints cooler. Today, we offer the brewery’s four latest cans in a to-go beer flight we call Peaks and Pints Pilot Program: Old Schoolhouse On The Fly.
