Location: Mill Creek, WA
Brewery: McMenanmins – Mill Creek
Reason: Open late
Crossing the mighty Mill Creek is never safe. Especially during the darkness of the midnight sky. Once we made it to the banks of the daunting Mill Creek, we only had a few choices, we either balk and do nothing or tackle the creek with the force of a 1000 suns. We did the latter. Mostly cause, beer.
As you may know McMenamins are everywhere. They have 7 breweries throughout Washington, plus even more in Oregon. Hell, they are even opening up the Washington version of Edgefield in Bothell in October. Which will be a must see. There is a reason why they are everywhere though. They are very popular and for many of reasons. They make consistent beer, they have a cool atmosphere and GREAT food (Get the tots). As you may know, I said consistent beer. While I’m not the biggest fan of their beers in a whole, I did enjoy their seasonals – an ISA and Double IPA. Both were above average.
I always will recommend McMeamins in a pinch. They are open late and always have a cool little theme. The Mill Creek one may be the least exciting of them all. But, just go enjoy their happy hour. You’ll like it.
Overall 6/10 – Good, but not great.
Sadly, we have no photo of Sam and I. I blame the beer.
