As I mentioned last week, my cousin recently moved to Poulsbo, WA. I decided to pay him, and some of the breweries there, a visit!
Maybe it’s my city-girl bias talking, but in the last year, twice I’ve been genuinely surprised to greatly enjoy beer from a small-town brewery. If people are coming to the only brewery around for miles, I guess I thought some places would skimp on taste or quality. But not in Long Beach!
If one were to choose to play hooky to hike and get a beer (or if one works an alternative schedule), many breweries might not be open weekdays, especially weekday afternoons. But if hiking up north, Sound to Summit in Snohomish has got your back!
Despite only being 37 square miles, there are multiple options to whet your whistle on Vashon Island, whether being a tourist or after hiking in Dockton Forest or Shinglemill Creek Preserve. On this day, we chose Vashon Brewing Community Pub.
My holiday break ended up not being quite what I had in mind, but I got to explore a few breweries in the Tri-Cities and see beloved family members, which is always a treat. I’ve already wrote about Badger Mountain in Richland, now where’s a brewery to hit afterwards!
