Welcome to the beauty, history and character that epitomize the Olympic Peninsula. This breathtaking area stretches from Gig Harbor to the Washington beach town of Westport, and up into the beautiful San Juan Islands. Finding a local spot to relax with great suds is easy. Whether you decide to sip on a pint of stout at a Port Townsend pub, sample a barley wine at a Port Angeles Brewery, or enjoy a doppelbock at one of the Bremerton Breweries, you’re sure to find the freshest, most delicious craft beers on the peninsula.
Enjoy the ambiance of the quaint, Victorian town of Port Townsend as you savor a hand-crafted microbrew while admiring the majestic Pacific Ocean from your bed and breakfast. Lounge in your favorite beach chair shore-side with a maritime-inspired local beer from one of the area’s nanobreweries while soaking up the sun. The Peninsula’s scenic coastal towns are truly worth experiencing with a pint of hoppy brew. From traditional farmhouse style ales to brews inspired by the area’s cranberry bogs, brew pubs and local watering holes can be found in every nook and cranny along this stretch of land which hugs the Puget Sound.
The trail to your ale doesn’t end inland, however. Make your way to Port Angeles to catch a ferry to Whidbey Island, Fox Island, Lopez Island, Orcas Island, or Bainbridge Island. Not only are the San Juan Islands brimming with natural beauty, but they’ve also got some killer brew pubs and restaurants you’ll want to check out during your excursion. If you’re staying outdoors, grab a bottle or two of a local Washington micro beer, and relax while you soak in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
Whether you choose to meander your way from brewery to brewery by way of ferry, or opt to explore the Olympic Peninsula microbreweries on the road, you’ll be excited with the variety of brew pubs here. So round up your friends and a few growlers — and head to the beach, or pull up a chair in one of the region’s many scenic taprooms.
