Location: Everett, WA
Brewery: Justice Brewing
Reason: They were open
After having a wonderful breakfast at Diamond Knot, it was time to hit the trail again. In a world of chaos, death and disorder, it is nice to have a little Justice and that is indeed what we got. Justice Brewing that is.
Justice is located in a back alley of sorts. Not that type of back alley that you’ll get murdered in, but a residential one. Then again, we are in Everett, so who knows. I’m kidding. Everett is wonderful. Justice a cool little brewery with a friendly brewer. Justice isn’t big by any means. It is the definition of craft brewery. It is one guy doing something he loves, making beer.
You can’t get pints there. Although for a dollar you can get a generous taster. So, with a few bucks in hand, Samwise and I were able to taste all his beers on tap, a couple of times. While the brewery didn’t have their flagship on tap (White and Nerdy), they did have the whiter and nerdier, which is a favorite of mine. It is a White IPA that has a great Belgium feel to it and is very drinkable. I also really enjoyed the High Stupidity. It is difficult for me to describe the beer since it doesn’t really fit a style. But it has the look of an amber but a very rich and complex flavor. If you see a bottle of it somewhere, you should give it a try.
What I loved most about Justice was how friendly the brewer/owner Nate was. Since Justice is small, it is by appointment only, but I shot him an email during the week, he replied with the days he was brewing, and let us swing by to try his beers. Everett has a growing beer scene and Justice is absolutely deserving of your attention if you see it around.
