Location: Poulsbo, WA
Brewery: Slippery Pig
Reason: Its called Slippery Pig!
As we make our way from brewery to brewery I was quickly realizing that I need to slow down. I may be a big guy, but drinking and driving is never safe. So after a brief lunch and pause, and pounding many and many waters, I deemed that I shall be only having 1 beer per brewery, to make sure I’m safe. Samwise on the otherhand, she was the passenger in the Fiat and could have as many as she wanted.
Once you walk into Slippery Pig, the first thing you notice is the wonderful smell. Not of beer, but of the BBQ. I wish I would have known that before we went and got lunch, because it smelled wonderful and the people sitting next to us, looked full as can be. But again, this is a beer blog, not a beer and bbq blog (NEW IDEA!). So we needed to try the beers.
Now since I was only having one beer, its very difficult to gauge the quality of the beer. BUT, from the one beer I had. I loved it. They have a huge selection and even though I only had the Rye Pale (I love Pales), I was a big fan. Sam had the IPA, and while all she could muster out to me at the time was “I’m so full”. She thoroughly enjoyed her beer.
Poulsbo is a destination location for craft beer. If you take the ferry to Seattle, you’ll pass several great breweries, so spending on your taste, you’ll always be happy. If I had to suggest a route for Poulsbo, I’d go Downpour and Hood Canal, stop off for lunch at Slippery Pig and then walk to Valholl and end up at Sound. Of course, that is a lot of drinking, so make sure you stay safe and maybe find a DD.
Off to Sound Brewing!
