Talking Cedar: Brews, Distilling, and Food

Looking for a unique new restaurant and brewery to try this fall? Talking Cedar is a brand new distillery, brewery, and restaurant in Grand Mound. This beautiful facility encompasses 35,000 square feet and is owned and maintained by the Chehalis Tribe.

Talking Cedar has partnered with Heritage Distilling Company, a highly awarded craft distillery in North America (based in Gig Harbor), to provide customers a 15,000 square-foot tasting room and distillery with eight fermentation tanks for the production spirits. Talking Cedar Brewing also has a six-barrel production floor to create specialty craft brews on site. All of the brews are crafted from the aquifer that runs beneath the facility. “Using this fresh local water makes it extra special and the water is important to us,” says Managing Director Chris Richards.

The new restaurant welcomes visitors in to enjoy delicious and upscale pub-style appetizers and entrees with locally sourced ingredients, along with their artisan drinks. “You won’t find fresh fish and chips caught locally like this at many other places, Richards says” Some of the other savory dishes on the menu include mouthwatering options like the Bacon Blue Burger, house-made mac ‘n cheese, and pork schnitzel. 

Visitors can view take a self-guided tour of the distillery and brewery, which includes some key historical information. “We are most excited to offer visitors tours that are a hands-on experience. “Engaging and being a part of the craft beverage experience is special and we want to share it,” says  Richards. 

Gatherings at Talking Cedar are unique and offered in a beautiful new facility. Whether you want to share stories over drinks, taste some local favorites or simply enjoy good company, Talking Cedar offers a craft experience to be enjoyed. By Leah Grout
