Talking Cedar Distillery and Brewery

Korsmo constructed this new destination brewery, distillery, and restaurant owned and operated by the Chehalis Tribe. The two-story wood building contains a full-service restaurant, tap room, banquet rooms, private tasting rooms, and retail space. The upper level has two classrooms for continuing education courses. The brewery space has six 120-barrel fermentation tanks, and one 60-barrel brew house, which allows a production run of 22,320 gallons per batch. There are also five grain silos on site, which will supply grains for the brewery and distillery. The project also included a new wastewater treatment plant on site.

Talking Cedar is the largest continuous still west of the Mississippi. It is also the first legal alcohol distillery on tribal land in the United States, following the repeal of a statute passed in 1834 prohibiting distilleries in Indian Country.
