For the first eight years, Caldera was draft only until June 2005 when the Pale Ale was put into cans. In 2007 the IPA was added to the can line up and in 2008 the Ashland Amber became the third flavor to can. In 2013, Caldera added Lawnmower Lager and Pilot Rock Porter to its can lineup. Caldera is the first micro brewery in the State of Oregon to brew and can its own beer.
The brewery is situated in a 28,000 square foot building in Ashland, Oregon. The brew house is a 30 barrel system with fermentation tanks ranging from 30, 60 and 90 barrels. This simply means Caldera brews either single, double, or triple batches to fill the fermenters. Many of Caldera's beers are filtered by a plate and frame filter leaving a clear and bright product. One thing that sets Caldera apart from many other Northwest breweries besides the beer clarity is the incorporation of fresh whole flower hops into the brewing process. Whole flower hops have a cleaner taste than palletized hops.
