Bainbridge Island has the dopest industrial park ever, with a coffee roaster, a distiller, a winery, and a brewery all in one place! The brewery is the only taproom of its kind on Bainbridge, and undoubtedly you will come here if you are on the island but keep in mind they close pretty early in the evenings. The beers are solid! We were lucky enough to hit it up during fresh hop harvest, and they were offering to infuse any glass of beer with a handful of muddled fresh hops. Sublime. Trivia night was fun too.

In a long strip plaza, mall, this really nice and comfortable local brewery has a couple of floors and a nice sized bar. Service was really nice and helpful. Good large selection with samplers available and cheap. The beer was average. No food but snacks. Not a bad stop, but not worth a side trip.

Lovely, expansive, modern place in an upscale commercial / industrial park. Two floors -- the downstairs where you enter is where the bar is with additional seating upstairs. 9 house beers on tap when I visited, ranging from safe styles to the more ambitious. Service was prompt and friendly. Beer quality was more or less average -- the hoppy ones were the strongest. Itís out of the way, but worth a stop if you can fit it in.

Visited on a Saturday night over a holiday weekend. Not too busy when we were there. A pretty standard industrial type brewery taproom atmosphere. 10 house beers on tap and 1 guest beer by Rainy Daze on tap. The beers were somewhat hit or miss, with a couple really nice ones and a couple that left something to be desired. But this is a cool place, especially for a place like Bainbridge Island - worth checking out if you are staying on the island. There is also a winery next door and a distillery across the street.

Nice, quiet, little place. Friendly service. Very good selection of unique beers. They donít have a restaurant, but there are several good food items for sale. An outstanding brewery.

Visiting from Minnesota. Ran into a local named AJ who showed us around the local breweries in Poulsbo and surrounding area. How could we go wrong? Great beer, great people, great experience.

Itís brand-spanking new and it looks like it walked out of a would-be brewerís dream. Everythingís custom, everythingís shiny and clean and fresh off the truck, and everythingís nice and welcoming. Itís as close to perfect as an ambitious little brewery can be. The beers are tasty and the people are super nice. Whether it stays a neighborhood brewery or makes a bigger regional splash, the next few years will tell. But either way itís a great place to stop for a pint when youíre on the island. And who isnít on the island from time to time?
You head down Sportsmanís Club Road, and youíre already having fun--so far youíre only reading the street signs. Itís past the church and in the new little retail park on the hill. Virtually every space here is leased, so I imagine thereís a nice hustle and bustle during the week. You walk in to a clean, bright, high-ceilinged place with a shiny (literally, shiny) bar back and a few highboys scattered around. The brewroom is functionally a part of the taproom area--you can see brite tanks and conical fermenters a few feet past the bar.
Thereís a staircase to a loft upstairs. The loft is like a living room--tables and chairs, overstuffed reading chairs with side tables, flat screen, board games. Itís a great place to relax and hang out with either friends, a book, backgammon, Risk, sports on TV, or all of the above. Just one bathroom downstairs and another up.
The beers rotate fairly regularly, and range from american ales (IPAs, stouts, porters, ambers, pales, etc.) to belgian abbey and farmhouse styles, to a variety of lagers. They tend toward a balanced approach in their recipes, with a few big beasts lurking here and there. They grow some of their own hops, and will start experimenting with special ingredients before long.
I canít wait to watch this place grow and progress now that theyíre ready for people to come through the door. Good people and good beer always deserve recognition.
