The odyssey continued heading north on Hwy 20 after about 10 minutes when we left Twisp we where in the quant little western town called Winthrop. It was cool to see what reminded you of the old west towns you saw on TV. Old bars, shops and a Old red schoolhouse that is now a brewery. The Old Schoolhouse Brewery was next for my adventures and tasting of all things beer. Watch our step you can catch yourself on the door jam on the floor. The old schoolhouse turned bar was awesome looking and had a great feel. The outside seating was overlooking a great view. This is a must stop the food was pub fair and we had plenty to go around. Little ones are welcome so that made it better for us with our little one. We will be back for an extended stay next time. Get our wranglers on and get ready to do some back country hiking and horse back riding. And then to finish it with a growler of IPA, Cream also or even a Cowboy Coffee stout. Thanks for a great time Old Schoolhouse. They just celebrated there first year being open and the brewer is really brewing up some great beers.

The food wasn’t bad here and they don’t skimp on the samples and the beer is reasonably priced. The downsides are they only had 5 beers and it wasn’t superb. I went when it was already converted to Old Schoolhouse Brewery but were still serving the last of the Winthrop brew.

Loved this place. Definitely a dive....in an old converted school house. Bartender was great, loved that we wanted to do a sampler with all 13 on tap. They had their ’02 Barleywine flowing, which was spectacular. A few locals; a few tourists. Sat at the bar next to a local who had just gotten shot with pellet spray and was drinking the pain off.
Worth stopping in for sure. Loved the IPA.

Wouldn’t likely re visit. Poor service, not all that clean, Average beers.
But I was there many years ago, in the mid 90’s. May be worth another visit.
