Located in historic downtown Lake Stevens, we’re proud to have established the first brewery in the city of Lake Stevens. We’ve strived to create a small and welcoming taproom and brewhouse with a family and dog-friendly environment. You’ll see locals ordering delivery food from one of many local restaurants or enjoying a hot dog from the Lake Stevens Hot Dogs cart located outside our front door on most Fridays and Saturdays. Or bring your own food and enjoy our many beer selections and rotating hard cider.
Like many businesses, we were founded as an idea in a garage between 3 would-be brewers and a pair of old brewpots. If only our brews had been less inviting, we might still be brewing weekly in that garage. But we soon realized a substantial following of thirsty neighbors and local growler-seekers alike. The garage simply couldn’t support the growth. A wife with a plan of taking back her garage space certainly helped the persuasion.
So after five years of brewing together, we began looking for a commercial brewhouse location. Our local support, labor outreach and Kickstarter funding sent us on our way with no looking back.
