Co-owners, Keith and Alex, had named their respective home breweries ‘Headless’ and ‘Mumby’
‘Headless’ is a salute to the song “Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner” by Warren Zevon, of whom Keith is a rabid fan.
‘Mumby’ is a reference to a defunct logging and shingle mill from the early 1900s which operated in the area Alex now lives.
Once Keith and Alex had made the fateful decision to join forces and open a brewery, they were faced with the daunting task of naming it. They decided, what better way to represent a truly collaborative effort than to unite the names of their home breweries? And, so it was.
Combined, the name ‘Headless Mumby’ is a slight nod to the Pacific Northwest lumbermen from days past who often had to organize and strike against greedy corporate heads… or whatever.
Headless Mumby Brewing Company represents the intersection of tradition and creativity.
Our seven barrel brewery focuses exclusively on brewing craft lager beer and is one of only a few independent breweries in the nation that does so. Specializing in styles that are often underrepresented in the modern craft beer movement, our lagers range from the traditional German styles to more modern Pacific Northwest-inspired variations.
We chose this path because these are the beers we love to brew and drink, and we are confident that passion will come through in the product.
Along with producing an exceptional product, we feel the only way to achieve our goals is to first succeed in the local community.
We value rigorous process, quality raw ingredients, and creating a safe and welcoming environment for our patrons to enjoy a beer.
We believe that excellent beer is not only our path to success, it is the driving passion behind the work we do.
Headless Mumby Brewing is one of very few lager-only independent breweries in the country. We brew a combination of both classic styles and modern day creations inspired by the Pacific Northwest.
Our year-round offerings are brewed with 100% German malt and 100% whole cone hops grown in the United States. Our house lager yeast is intended to be fairly neutral in order to highlight the balance of malt and hops. Our lagers undergo a lengthy fermentation process at cold temps before being transferred to serving tanks.
Headless Mumby Brewing deviates from other breweries in that we serve our lagers fresh and unfiltered. Our beers will change a bit in flavor and clarity as they age, and you can enjoy them throughout this process. Our lagers are served in ½ Liter amounts in mugs with a larger capacity to allow for ample headspace above the beer.
We are making the beers we love and we hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
