Grain from Germany is shown.


Bill Riffle and partner Tony Guinn work on a batch of beer.


Bill Riffle won a gold medal at the Great American Beer Festival for his imperial red ale.


Gravity BrewWorks uses grains from all over


the world, including Belgium, Germany, England and the U.S. Guinn said they also use local prod- ucts, such as honey from Big Creek Honey Farm in Mountain View, for their honey porter. Riffle and Guinn brew on Mondays and Tues-


days. Riffle said the beer takes a month to fer- ment. The two like to get creative when it comes to


naming their beers. They have come up with Fall- ing Star ESB, Zingibeer, Liquid Curage, Brown- Eyed Girl, Belhop, Hoppy Together India Red Ale and Blacker Shade of Ale. The beers are available in tasters, pints, quarts and growlers (half gallon). Riffle said despite locating to a small town, he


knew a brewery would be successful. “There are a lot of tourists that come by,” he


said. “Motorcyclists travel this road and stop in. If you make really good craft beer, people will travel to get it.” Local residents also have been visiting the


brewery, some coming every week to try new beers.
