Really neat little place with great beer.
It’s pretty small--about eight picnic tables and a bar with a half-dozen stools.
Service was good--just walk up to the bar and order. I met the lead brewer and he showed me around the brewery--really nice guy.
They don’t have a kitchen, but smoked salmon and peanuts are available.
The beer here is not only outstanding, but they have a lot to sample--when I visited, 15 different beers were available.

Small tap room for a small brewery. The beers are unrefined, but the service very laid back and the locals are friendly. Nice place for a pint or two.

The Viking theme has historical merit in the Kitsap area, and the scenery and ambiance are Scandinavian in nature too. I thought the beers here were solid. The taproom is small, but while locals do seem to flock here for socializing. I would too if I lived here. It’s one of those places where the bartenders know everyone and drink with the people too. They serve the BEST local shell-roasted peanuts, from CBs, for $1.

Pretty compact little bar at the top of a hill, with 11 house beers on tap when I visited. Cheap flights available and very friendly, personable service. Beer quality was decent, with a few standouts. The second best brewery in town I’d say. Worth a stop when in Poulsbo.

A small Viking style tap room with a beautiful view out over the bay. Only a few tables and a very small bar. I visited on the towns 4th of July celebration so the place was hopping but service was quick. Probably about 15 taps available, and a cask as well. Samplers usually available but not on my visit due to the crowd. Prices are good and no food available. A cool little spot.

A very nice building just off the water with lots of parking available. Service was provided by the owners wife and was fun and flirty with a nice knowledge of her beers. Clientele is mostly local and lots of military. Older crowd with dirty minds. Prices were made up on the spot for an entire board tasting and was very cheap. Beer is all over the map quality wise, but the good was pretty good. Although not a must stop, it is nice and if you are going downtown, worth while.

his review is for the new location on 3rd Street, behind the main Poulsbo tourist drag.
The building here is so, so cool. It’s a classic mid-century modern structure with interesting post and beam construction. Some of the beams are purely decorative, but the structural elements across the ceiling are really cool. There’s a big heavy new door made to look like a rough-hewn piece appropriate for a Viking longhouse with big heavy iron hinges, and inside there’s a bunch of reclaimed second-use clear cedar nailed to the walls for paneling. It’s gorgeous inside, in a very mixed contemporary way. So cool. There’s a tasting room, a bar, a couple of heads, and then down a hall is the production brewery. You can clearly see, hear, and smell the brewing and cleaning as it happens.
The staff and regulars here are very laid back and friendly. The place filled up in no time when we were here, and everyone seemed to know each other. Felt like a house party.
Unfortunately, every beer we tried had significant flaws, but as they gain experience, most likely they’ll eliminate most if not all of these. Still, despite the quality of the beer, I can’t help but recommend this place. You have to stop in for at least one beer if you’re on the strip in Poulsbo, and if you’re making the big Poulsbo beer run (Slippery Pig, Sound, Valholl), then it’s a given that ya gotta get in here.

A true garage brewery but with permits! Love their anise IPA, stout, and strong ale. Relaxed atmosphere and nice crew. You can’t get more Northwest small batch than this! CHeck it out before they move to a new location.

This is a great place to visit. Hurry they are going to move and the old garage is a wonderful atmosphere. Love the beer, people and the place. A must see. If need food bring your own.
