Arch Rock Brewing Co.


The three flagship beers at Arch Rock Brewing Co.

We have been stopping by Arch Rock Brewing for the past few years every time we are on the southern Oregon coast. The small production facility and tasting room is always a fun and friendly place to have a beer and it has a very local vibe. Brewmaster James Smith and his wife Kristen, who are also co-owners of Arch Rock Brewing are almost always on site, and being a small batch brewery James is usually in the process of making beer. You can check out the times they are open by visiting their web site here.

In addition to the three flagship beers James will often have a small batch seasonal release. In the past he has done a Belgian Wit, Apricot Lager, Absinthe Barrel Aged Porter, Imperial Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Saison, and a Black IPA! 

I would highly suggest picking up a growler, putting together a picnic and enjoying a pint looking at the namesake “Arch Rock” which is a short drive south on 101 in the Samuel H. Boardman Park.

It is a special thing to enjoy a beer in the facility where it was produced.

Arch Rock Brewing Co. is located in the small community of Hunter Creek just south of Gold Beach, Oregon.

About XPLORE FILM and Sip & Stay

The Art of Life

Tony and Terri-Lynn met in 1987 as teenagers. In 1991 they were married.  Tony has been a professional musician his entire life and spent the 90’s touring and releasing albums.  In 2001 the couple left the cities and moved to a small community on the Oregon coast. This is where they fell into television production and film making. In 2004 Makai Ohana Productions was founded and the couple produced advertising and creative content for hundreds of tourism related businesses and government entities in Southern Oregon and Northern California. Realizing the industry was evolving towards the internet they re-branded the business in 2012 to Xplore Film.  This company would now be an international business producing films world wide as well as an NGO in West Africa where the couple provides clean water boreholes, scholarships and even a prosthetic hand project.

In 2018 Tony and Terri-Lynn with their dog Bisque Kitt packed the belongings they could carry on their backs and flew to Spain. They bought a home and planned to spend equal time between the two countries running the business.  Then Covid hit and the world closed.  By 2020 they realized Spain, and specifically Torrevieja was now home.  They bought a sailboat and started to create a life on the Costa Blanca of music, film, events and community.
