At the site of where it all began, our Tap Room is located 6.5 miles east of Highway 101 in sunny and picturesque Blue Lake, CA, just a stone’s throw from the Mad River.

Decorated to incorporate aspects of the Brewery’s history, the new Yurok branding, and Yurok art, The Mad River Tap Room offers a refreshing and laid-back atmosphere. Visitors can get both tried-and-true flagship beers like Steelhead Extra Pale Ale and our Jamaica Red Ale as well as small-batch fan-favorites and interesting seasonal varietals that indulge our experimental side, exclusively on tap in our Tap Room throughout the year.

Welcoming vibes, pet-friendly, and a true gathering place, the Tap Room features, in addition to indoor bar and seating, extended outdoor dining space that is complementary to the pleasant weather and lush views of our location. In addition to the delicious offerings from Low & Slow BBQ who operates the kitchen space attached to our bar, we also partner with local food trucks and vendors, making our Tap Room a must-stop—whether you’re a local in search of a river-day end-destination, or a beer-lover looking to experience a special piece of Humboldt. Our Tap Room is where craft beer and unbeatable atmosphere collide. Order pickup and reservations available.

Low & Slow BBQ. Tried tri -tip, pork loin, and shredded chicken. All were cooked well and tasty. They have variety of sauces. Their sign indicated closed on Tuesday and Wednesday. My first experience and it appears they have specialties each day. I enjoyed their fried pickles it was great.
