Brewery: 101 Brewing
Location: Quilcene, WA
Reason: Its literally right off the highway.
Highway 101 is one of the more majestic highways in the United States. Starting from Olympia and follows the coast all the way to LA, it a beautiful stretch of road. At almost every single minute of the drive you’ll have water on one of the sides of your automobile. A very awesome situation. But we aren’t here to talk about roads, or water, we are here to talk about beer. And thankfully, along this route there are plenty of breweries. From the start, you have a bunch of Olympia, then 1 in Shelton. And finally, you come to the town of Quilcene, where you have 101 Brewing.
There is probably no brewery in the United States closer to a highway than 101 Brewing. As you’re driving north through Quilcene, the brewing will be situated just off the highway on the eastside of the road. It doesn’t look like much, just your everyday peninsula building. But inside there is beer. And food!
The selection may not be the grandest in the world, they only have 4 beers on tap. A pale, a wheat, a brown and a stout. I know that seems CRAZY, but again, this is a small town and everything is brewed in house. The beer itself was fine. I’ve had them a few times now, the pale by far being my favorite. The wheat can be a on the sweet side, so if you like that in wheat beers, I highly suggest that route.
If you’re making the journey to Port Angeles or Port Townsend and need a quick bite and some beer, give it a shot. #DrinkWaBeer
