Visited on my on foot Woodinville crawl. Stop #3. Cool layout here, and great location, considering I’m in the middle of a walking tour. Small front taproot like seating area with an impressive vintage can collection assumed to be owned by the brewer, who happens to be running the taproom. Cafeteria like seating in the back area. Crowlers and growlers for a good price. 8 beers on tap. Bottles as well, including some that I’m sure you will only find here. Fun place, and an honest brewer to talk with. I enjoy this place and their beer more than ever right now.

Cool little place in a strip mall within an industrial area. The beer quality, however, is quite terrible, with almost all the draught beers having some sort of vegetal notes or other off-flavours. Reasonably priced and the service is friendly, but I can’t really recommend the place due to the beer quality.

Minimalist operation, I like the place, maybe a dozen seats inside that double when the patio is open. The beers are really not impressive. No wifi. Beer sampler poured without info about what you are drinking. The beers are not bad, but they are very basic. It’s the kind of place where you spend some time with your friends and don’t care about the beer.

This is a small and fairly new nanobrewery. Yes, that means it’s smaller than a microbrewery, and that’s an important distinction. First, the owner and head brewer holds down a full-time job. So this place is only open Fridays and Saturdays. And that’s actually pretty cool. Cool that it’s gotten a little toehold and every month’s revenue isn’t live or die. Second, the operation really is tiny. You’re up in the hills of Woodinville, and you’re in a little strip mallish/light industrial space that shares the parking lot with a "gourmet burger joint." This place doesn’t have food, so maybe there’s a potential for combined errands there. Third, the operation really is tiny. There are tidy, attractive tables and chairs, all matching, lined up neatly inside and out. Outside is just a chunk of parking lot on the other side of a roll-up garage door, but they have heaters out there and they keep an eye on you, and it’s actually fairly quiet. Seats about 25-30. Fourth--OK, I’ll quit saying it. You can clearly see the brewhouse from the taproom, and they brew in what’s essentially a very well-made standard homebrew setup. That means they can only fill corne kegs (5-gallon kegs, like you’d see under a soda fountain). That’s good and bad. They run out of stuff a lot, but it also means they probably might have interesting replacements rolling on next on a regular basis, depending on how often they can get back and brew. There was a decent steady stream of customers rolling in on a Saturday afternoon, so whether there’s much time in the day to brew is probably an open question. Bottom line, the beers are solid enough, some are actually pretty decent. It’s worth the drive out this way to check them out.

We visited during the second week of it’s opening. Location is smack dab in the middle of the Woodinville warehouse district with plenty of parking and where winery tasting rooms are abundant. On the outside it is a converted manufacturing/multi-use space that on a good day will retract it’s sliding main door and reveal a very small tasting room that spills out onto the front patio. Seating capacity at most one would estimate to be around 25 and that would be very very tight. Upon entering there’s a short main counter with a few stools, directly behind which are 5 taps. Pretzels are available but more filling burgers etc are found in a restaurant just across the parking lot. They’re brewing on a 10 gallon Sabco and have a quaint working area in the back which visitors may roam about freely as of the time of this review. The owner is cordial, genuine, and really seems to enjoy his business. Beers as of the 2nd week of being open are decent, they utilize two strains of yeast which gives a bit more flexibility in their creative department. There may be future availability limitations based on their current brewing capacity and it would be best to procure their product at the taproom. Beer selection is basic as of now, they offer the standard lineup of Pale, Amber, IPA, and a very interesting Blonde along with rotating brewer selections. i’d be interested to see how far they’ll come in the coming year.
