Location: Marysville, WA
Brewery: Whitewall Brewing
Reason: MORE BEER!
After our brief stop at Skookum it was time to take on the Whitewall. Legends tell us the mysterious Whitewall rises out of the depths of Marysville and very few have been able to conquer it. But Samwise and I were determined. The Whitewall will not stop our journey.
Whitewall looks like your traditional brewery. We walk in to see a food truck in front, popcorn machine in the back, live music being played below their roll up garage and the Sounders game on the big screen TV. Yeah, that is a brewery. We wander up with our loyal dog Lupa (Who gets all the love at breweries) and order a beer. Since we are a few drinks in, we don’t get a sampler. A local man tells me I need to order the Retread, their Red IPA. I instantly fall in love and get a growler of it on the spot. It is that good. Sadly, this is the only beer I get at Whitewall. Luckily though, Sam lives close to the brewery and I want to try the rest.
I loved the feel of the brewery and I loved the Red IPA. The owners are super nice. Were very friendly and chatted us up for a while. I love that in a brewery. Those guys are awesome.
