Location: Lake Stevens, WA
Brewery: BrewBakers Brewery
Reason: Hitting a brewery before it closed for the night
As we exit At Large we look for one more brewery to hit before the night came to a close. Luckily for everyone involved in the journey, At large being a growler fill only, we are still feeling sober and wanted to hit up another place. So we ask our mystic guide Cortana and she points out a small brewery – BrewBakers, only a few miles away. We load up the Fiat and dash across Arlington towards Lake Stevens, trying to make BrewBakers before it closes.
If you want a cool place to have a beer on a Saturday night next to a fire. BrewBakers is the place to go. I’ve never been to a brewery that feels like you’re camping. But as you can see. CAMPFIRE!
While Samwise and I only had a beer each (It was last call), we were able to sit on a bench right next to the fire and enjoy those beers. It was a really cool feeling. If you love the idea of camping without all the camping and just the beer, BrewBakers is the place to go.
The beers were fine and refreshing. They were very traditional, had two IPAs plus several other ones (We only got the IPAs). While they weren’t necessarily the best beers in the world, they were good and next to the campfire that I mentioned before, it sets up for a cool evening. Also, since the brewery is a dad and son operation, the mother kept bring my pretzels and was very mom about it. Always asking how we were doing and being just plain awesome. She was really cool.
