One of the best brew pubs in the northwest. Set amongst the shops on the main street of touristy LaConner. Cozy contemporary log cabin like feel to the pub. Service is helpful and always with a smile. The wood-fired pizza and other menu selections are consistently some of the best food I’ve had in a brew pub. The beer is always good as well.
A beautiful brewery in a beautiful town. Great service and good wood-fired pizza. Had 7 of their beers on tap.

Bright and woody, cozy pub in the small little tourist town of LaConner. There are so many beautiful little towns in NW Washington. The beer is quite well-made...no need to slight the new guy no matter how well regarded his predecessor was. Service was fantastic and efficient. At night, the place is very warmly lit and bustling with jovial people. It’s not too far away, so I’ll definitely be back. Food...pizza is wood oven, fairly standard. Crab cakes are pretty good, though I’m not known as a crab cake aficionado.
I had a great time here. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The beer is fantastic (although Arlen, the brewer, has gone to Rogue in Eugene). Nice location among art dealers and lots of nice little shops. Nice wood bar and dining area.
Great little tourist trap of a placethe decor is definitely some knick-knack catalog’s idea of what the world is supposed to look likeyou know, those people’s living rooms that look like a lobby but everyone always says how pretty they look. It’s not off-putting at all, it’s actually quite welcoming, just not as soulful as it thinks it is. Very cute and friendly servers, though nobody seemed to know anything more about the beer than they had to to serve it to tourists and townies. I was there on a Saturday night, and all the locals were asking each other if they were going to the big dance tonight. I didn’t know any places still had big dances tonight for anyone other than high schools and junior highs, but there you go. It’s set in a quaint, chamber-of-commerce-approved historical district. You smell salt air walking around here it’s right across the street from the piers. It’s really nice, and you’re bound to find a few of the beers in good shape. The kitchen appears to kick ass.
Arrived here my 3rd stop of 6 for the day and this place was packed. Parking was tight and the wait was about 30 minutes to get a table to I sat in the bar which was packed also. They had 5 taps going and I had one pint as the crowd was just too much. A brew pub feel and look this was a nice clean place. I was in the mood for a porter so I had that and it was a tasty treat. The beer had great malt and hops characters. The chocolate and coffee flavors where wonderful. Food is available and looked like a good pub faire. The only down side I saw was parking is very tight in the area. So you will have to hoof it to get tot the place. I will be back to check it out during the tulip festival time and show the family. They are family friendly so kids are welcome.
Nice pub in tiny LaConner. Probably the best but didn’t see them all of course. Very friendly help and the girl that waited on us was certainly knowledgeable. The food was more than OK but the quantities could be bigger. Nice beers.
Parking can get a bit tight around happy hour times. Don’t remember if they had one, but about 5 pm things were getting dense. Large enough place, comfortable, and a good enough selection of beers. Indeed.
Nice cozy brewpub in a very quaint-looking town. High ceilings, lots of wood, and a fairly bright interior. Feels like a log cabin. Good service and well prepared food. Decent selection of brews including a few in bottles. I’d love to get back when I’ve got more time to soak up the atmosphere.
Visited on Easter Sunday, 2003. LaConner (the town) is a touristy little town on the water, about an hour north of Seattle. The Brewry/brewpub sits in the old-fashioned downtown. The food was very tasty (we had lunch there), and the beer was fresh, as you might expect. We really enjoyed it and would have loved to stay longer.
