Took a coulple friends here during our mini BrewPub marathon Saturday. Good sized place with a nice outdoor seating area. They a nice selection on tap but found the beers to be just OK. For some reasonI was realy hoping to sample the YellowJacket Pale but they were out. Had the german saussage platter for a snack and it was quite tasy and was a nice compliment tothe beverages. I found the service to be not particularly friendly, lots of Tshirt type merchandise avalible(including 55$ basball shirts) . looked like pretty big brewery facility inthe back.

Eleven active taps of solid true-to-style beers. Decent basic pub fare food at reasonable prices. Decor & atmosphere is appropriate for a comfortable neighborhood pub. My server was able to describe the differences between the "standard" IPA and the seasonal IPA. Yeah, itís not a pretentious yuppie meat-market, but it is a good place to enjoy some good beer, fill your belly with food, and have a good time with some friends. Monday is $3 pint night; a pretty good bargain!

Made a big mistake stopping here near the end of a long weekend daytrip. One of the hottest days of the year and a place serving a bunch of crappy lagers doesnt have the A/C turned on. The brewery is in a cool old building but they clearly have not put much effort into sprucing up the interior - its not a dive but it just seems like minimal effort was put into modernization and styling and even less is put into the day-to-day cleaning and maintenance. Our waitress did not know what beers they had on tap despite there being less than what I can count on two hands being available. There were only two beers above 5% abv, one of which was their highly over-rated, uber-unbalanced IPA. The food was very expensive for both its casual fare and the frightening view of the kitchen that you get when walking to the entrance from the street. There was very little about this place as a restaurant or a brewpub that I enjoyed and am glad that I do not live close by.

I loved the look of this location. Neat old building, family friendly. Occasionally a train will go right by the window and shake things up. The pizza I had there was pretty top notch, with a well made chewy, thin crust, nice sauces. The beers vary in quality, but everything I had on my visit was solid at the least. I really like their IPA on tap. Service was fast and friendly. Itís very easy to get to, right off the highway, which makes this place worth a stop if youíre passing through.

4th stop for the day I found Skagit River Brewing in Mt Vernon WA and this being my first time it was a pretty neat small town. Not far from I-5 and easy to find this was an old farming type ban that had been many other businesses over the years. They finally got the brewery in there and it was perfect. Lots of parking out front and you will find they have tons of room inside. The old wooden floors and great brew pub feel. I was greeted with a cavalcade of beers to choose from. I was able to order a sampler tray of some great beers. I started out with the Del Rio Lager next the English Best Bitter, Washington Wheat, the Shiver Me Liver Barley wine which had some wonderful flavors. I finished my tasting with the Sullivans Stout which was wonderful nectar for the stout gods. This was a great place to stop. They are close to the tulip festival also so there can be several things to do in the area also. I did not have any food but it was that of the pub faire.

Visited March 2006. Did not eat any food, just stopped for a beer. The beer was good but nothing really stood out in my mind. Will definitely stop by next time through the area.

Cool refurbed warehouse set right by the train tracks in an old warehouse district. Pretty beautiful setting. Plenty of room, and can get pretty busy at the typical times restaurants get busy. Decent food. The beerís all over the map, with a few true gems, so itís worth a visit...especially since itís literally 90 seconds from I-5. The staff is solid but not ultra-informed about beer, mostly cute college kids hustling tips. You can find more compelling brewpubs in this state, but if youíre not super-pressed for time, this oneís worth a visit.

Lots of noise from the I-5 and trains gives it some personality, or possibly really annoys you. Everything was wood, mostly tables with a few booths. Our table had a flower on it with a beer bottle as a vase. Service was better then average although the server was rather weird. I had tasters of every beer and they were all at least ok. With my dinner I got a white bun with a one of those peel open butter patties and a salad composed of head lettuce and grated carrot and red cabbage. I felt like I was in a cafeteria or on a ferry. The mashed potatoes werenít very good either and my Salmon was overcooked. The food is definitely below average and rather dissapointing considering the beer is good. Good beer, decent service, but eat somewhere else first.

Tough to miss this place since it about 100 ft from the freeway. Cool space, lot of wood and a semi-open kitchen. The kitchen is small but the food is pretty tasty and comes out fast. Lots of locals and seems like a nice hang-out kind of spot. Friendly service and if you just want to drink, theyíve got no problem with that. Beers range from average to quite good. Worth checking out.

You can see this place from I-5. We actually came into town from La Conner, so we got a good look at the river, bridges and surroundings. This place has a slight British pub feel to it, located at the boder between the downtown shop area and the freeway onramps and such. Thereís a large outdoor seating area, and the inside is dark, moody, confined and resembling a large log cabin. The bar is set away in a dark spot near the entrance, but the mood is sleepy and pleasent.
