PORT ANGELES — A grand opening celebration with the Port Angeles Ambassadors recently marked the opening of Ed and Wanda Smith's Twin Peaks Brewing and Malting Co.

Twin Peaks — which includes a tasting room — is located in the airport industrial park at 2506 W. 19th St.; its hours are
2 p.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

The Twin Peaks brewing operation has been a dream 
and ongoing project for Ed 
and Wanda for the past couple of years.

Well-known for their locally produced microbrews made on site at Peak's Pub, Ed Smith said he felt the time had come to expand the brewing operation to meet the growing demand for his specialty brews.

After acquiring a site 
in the industrial park and 
getting a full set of brewery equipment from Germany, Ed and Wanda and crew worked slowly and patiently to get the beer recipes just right, scaling up from producing a keg at a time to being able to produce 40 kegs of premium beer in one batch.

While refining the recipes, the Smith's undertook extensive remodeling of the industrial site, including adding the tasting room and putting in a garden to produce some of the ingredients for future batches of beer.

The couple have kept their product line as local as possible, using hops and barley grown in-state, buying their bottling materials from Swain's General Store and employing local contractors for the remodeling.
