Brewery: Maelstorm Brewing
Location: Kirkland WA
Reason: New Day, New Brewery
There came a time recently where WABL journey needed to explore, to sail into the sunset and discover new breweries. So we set a course and headed north towards the great unknown, when we noticed something ominous on the horizon, a swirling vortex, and before we knew it, we found ourselves caught in the grips of the Maelstorm.
On July 13, 2017, Maelstorm Brewing finally opened their doors in Kirkland. A project that has been brewing since owner and head brewer, Scott developed a love of beer. The newest kid on the WABL block, has a welcoming tap room with roll up doors and an outdoor seating area for those sunny Kirkland afternoons. The central location in Kirkland is perfect for meeting up with our friends on the north end of the lake. I would recommend getting a sampler tray at least once, if for no other reason, to admire the custom sampler trays.
Finally, for the real reason that everyone is here, the contents of those sampler trays. Maelstorm specializes in traditional craft beers. Matt and I tried the Petra Kolsh, the Pale, and the Anodyne IPA. I really liked the IPA, a traditional west coast IPA. Matt was a big fan of the Kolsh, very light and refreshing on a summer day, or when you are in the mood for a lighter beer. The pale had a maltier body giving it a fuller mouth feel, one of our friends left the brewery raving about this one.
