Caldera Brewing Company is an internationally award-winning microbrewery in its 23nd year of brewing. We are still dedicated to producing uncompromised quality ales, lagers, sodas, such as root beer and ginger ale, and a cuisine that reflects the Pacific Northwest. Located on the east side of Ashland with easy freeway access, it offers the most expansive dining view in town. Featuring happy hour Monday through Friday 4pm-6pm.
In addition to the regular menu featuring creative fresh salads, seafood, meats, and poultry entrees, and burgers and sandwiches, guests can also opt for the daily Food and Beer Pairing. The executive chef recently crafted a Buffalo Chicken Burger with Gorgonzola cheese, shredded hearts of Romaine, and Buffalo sauce on a toasted house-made Pub Bun. Served with fries and a glass of Lawnmower Lager. With a constant eye on sustainability, the chef team utilizes local ingredients and farm products, such as Rogue Creamery.
In 2006, Caldera became the first craft brewery on the West Coast to brew and can its own beer, helping to start a revolution. Today they continue to incorporate “green” practices in their business model with reduce-reuse-recycle across all restaurant, brewery and building operations. Their Caldera Soda Works launched with the lowest-sugar root beer on the market, and now includes ginger ale (with organic ginger), lemon-lime Soda Hop and a refreshing Hibiscus Rose Petal Ice Tea.
Today, the restaurant boasts more than 40 brews on tap, six of Caldera’s most popular beers are available in cans year round. Each season the brewmaster crafts a beer that speaks of what is fresh in the market. Lining the soaring walls is Oregon’s largest beer display, a private collection of more than 5,000 bottles and cans that owner Jim Mills has amassed since his youth.
