The Klamath Basin brewery/brewpub is the only known brewing operation that uses geo-thermally heated water for the brewing process of making beer. What makes Klamath Basin Brewing Company unique is the water we use comes from the natural feed underground rivers that flow from the Cascade Mountain Range and the famous Crater Lake .

The naturally earth heated hot water is added to the malted barley to extract the natural sugars from the grain. This barley is some of the finest malting barley in the world, that is grown right here in the Klamath Basin.
