Long and narrow rustic look to it. Selection sucked because the took most to the beer festival in Kenmore on the weekend. Service was adequate. The most interesting part was the bathroom (urinal was a Bud Keg).
Stopped in here while passing through the area. The area has a cool beach town vibe, and this place fits right in with a mellow feel and friendly service, with to-go beers. Big selection of different beers on tap; I didn’t try the food. Will have to go back sometime.
Cool place right up from the edge of the sound. Small to go area up front for bottles and growlers. Service was excellent and the staff is very knowledgeable about their beers. Selection was great with lots of hoppy offerings and a range of other standard beers as well. Food was fantastic, a bit pricy but large portions help make up for it. Value is great on beer and even better for beer to go. This place is worth going out of your way for.
Great place to get stone cooking and good beer. Place has peanut shells on the floor and a good pub atmosphere. Food is really good, unfortunately they did away with their espresso encrusted steak, our favourite. Still a great place.
I am derating this one a bit, after they remodeled. I don’t like the way it is set up now. It lost a lot of that homey feel, and is now more modern. With the remodel came more people and higher prices as well.
Great spot to hang out and enjoy some quality beers while in Mukilteo. Highlights of the sampler platter include the Industrial IPA, Whip Ale and Hefeweizen. Will definitely return to try the Winter Ale and Barley Wine when they’re on tap.
2010-07. Visited on a Thursday afternoon last July, this wonderfully located brewpub lets you stone-grill your own sandwiches or you can choose from a bunch of hand-tossed pizzas, with free soup available on Thursdays. They had just opened for the day and were very happy to serve us nearly a dozen of their own brews along with a tasty South Pacific and Carnivore pizza, with the IPA being particularly noteworthy. Would love to return one day.
Rather downtrodden building from the outside, but actually cozy inside. Feels lived in, not exceedingly aesthetic, which I like. The brews we had were all decent, but nothing special. All went quite well with the greasy pizzas. Very much a locals’ hangout near the pier. Oh, the urinal, an open keg of Anheuser-Busch’s, is hilarious!
I’ve been going here for years. Industrial IPA was on the forefront of the double/imperial IPA rage. Great place for a meal- I recommend the hotstone items, but the pizza is good too. Has the best urinal in the world- bar none! (you just got to see it)
2010-06. Nice taverny feel inside, like what you might find in a beach town? Server is super friendly and animated. Pizzas were great, The Carnivore rocked. The Pacific would have been better with tomato sauce rather than BBQ sauce. Free soup day! The signature dishes seemed to be the hot stone cooking yourself option which freaked us out enough that we didn’t find it all that appealing. (What if you under cook it?) Free wifi! Beers were a bit disappointing to be honest, a few standouts but a good number of poor ones as well. Glad we went but I wouldn’t go as out of our way to go back as we did on this trip.
Place looks like a dive from the outside, but inside it’s all about good beer and food. We had sandwiches where you cook the meat on a heated stone... cool and different. The beer was surprisingly good and the service was great too. The area surrounding is very scenic and it’s definitely worth a trip.
It’s all about the beer. Forget ambiance. I felt like I was sitting in a mobile-home extension to a community Bingo hall. Drafty, cold, painfully florescent-lit and bright, the astroturf carpeting sure didn’t add much to the ambiance, but it definitely caught the shells from our $1.25 bowl of peanuts. The surroundings were as romantic as a scene where a sailor finally gets one day of shore leave after being in the service for 2 years and stumbles into the nearest bar to port only to find a toothless etc. etc...you get the idea. We did have this amazing cave-man-like cheesesteak that was brought out on a hot granite stone that cooked the meat in front of our eyes. That part was pretty cool and I highly recommend the stone grill to everyone. The IPA and IIPA were phenomenal, top notch and well worth the drive....I wasn’t so hip on their other offerings...some had severe flaws and off flavors. We also split a pizza that was suppose to have blue cheese which tasted pretty ok, but their usage of bleu cheese dressing instead of blue cheese crumbles was definitely "different". Go for the beer, close your eyes and drink.
