Brewster Chamber

At the confluence of the Columbia, Okanogan and Methow Rivers is the town of Brewster, Washington. The snow capped peaks of the Cascades rise to Brewster's west as their foothills roll down to the rivers' banks. Orchards surround the town as these dramatically steep hills drop toward the river creating an ideal place to grow apples and cherries. Brewster is not only at the confluence of three great rivers, but it is also at the cross-roads where goods and travelers connect to Wenatchee, Chelan, the Methow, Moses Lake, Omak, and Canada.
