Beginning with the 2013 season, the track’s 5th floor turf club area has been renamed and rebranded as The Redhook Turf Club at Emerald Downs.
"We are excited to team with Redhook for the naming rights of the Turf Club,” said Emerald Downs Marketing Director Sophia McKee. “Redhook is a strong brand with a local presence and a strong tie to sports and entertainment. It's a perfect fit for our audience."
Founded in 1981 by Paul Shipman and Gordon Bowker, Redhook Ale Brewery is a member of the Craft Brew Alliance.

With breweries in Woodinville and Portsmouth, N.H., Redhook currently produces several styles of beer, marketed under distinct brand names. Redhook's flagship brand is Redhook Extra Special Bitter (ESB), and it also produces Long Hammer, Pilsner, and the newest addition Audible Ale, brewed in collaboration with sports broadcaster Dan Patrick. Redhook Ale Brewery will also pour their brews at the Emerald Downs WA Cup Beer Festival on September 8.
