Location: Poulsbo, WA
Brewery: Sound Brewing
Reason: One last brewery on our Poulsbo Day
As we finished up with the in-town Poulsbo breweries, Bing maps reminds me that there is one more near, Sound Brewing. I’ve had Sound MANY times before, but never at the brewery. So even though it was late, and I knew I was only having a small sample, I needed to see the brewery.
To get to Sound, you need to drive around Liberty Bay, which is just a few minutes away. If you haven’t been to Poulsbo, you need to seriously go. It’s beautiful, with good food, good views and GREAT beer. And Sound is one of those good breweries.
While I only had a sample of one of their beers at the brewery, I’ve had several of their beers. Reluctant IPA, Cave Bear, and Triple Entendre are all beers I’ve enjoyed. The Reluctant is your traditional northwest IPA which a great hop smell with a hint of citrus. A true northwest beer. Another wonderful beer is the Triple Entendre, which sitting at almost 10% abv is a real kick in the head. If you like tripels, then the Triple Entendre will be very enjoyable.
At the end of the day I cannot say enough about Sound Brewing and the rest of the Poulsbo breweries. Spend a day there, maybe even check out an AirBNB and stay the weekend. It is a very delightful place.
