Rick and Ellen are passionate about exploring the wilderness, whether on foot or by paddle. Our respect for nature’s beauty and balance guides our approach to everyday life. When we decided to open The Noble Fir, we knew that we wanted to bring our love of the outdoors to our new venture. Rick leaves behind 10 years at REI to share his knowledge with our patrons. Ellen decided that after 10 years of lawyering, she could use a drink. Together, we hope to bring a festive approach to your enjoyment of some of the best things the Pacific Northwest has to offer – hops, barley, fermented grapes and miles of trails...
