Triplehorn Brewing

The last stop on my Woodinville-area brewery bike ride was the very new Triplehorn Brewing. They are just up the road from Dirty Bucket, where I made a quick stop beforehand, and as you leave, helpful sandwich boards guide you to next brewery. Jim Jamison from Foggy Noggin was there, saying hello to his new neighbors. I sat down at the bar and ordered a sampler, thinking I should hurry in order to bike back home before it got too dark, but started chatting with folks and then did a little tour of their brewing set up.  Pretty friendly vibe at this nicely built-out warehouse space. I have to say, over the past couple years it’s been interesting to see the different ways new breweries have been starting up: from part-time nanos growing slowly to going-all-in large production micros. Triplehorn’s definitely in the latter end of the spectrum — cheers to them.

Triplehorn tasters

Tasters at Triplehorn Brewing — Woodinville, WA

    Rob’s Picks

  • Bitfrost Pale Ale – 5% – Floral aroma and flavor. Solid maltiness with caramel notes. Light lingering bitterness.
  • Landwink IPA – 5.9% – Fairly strong citrus aroma and flavor. Good malty base. Great bitterness.
  • Folkvang Irish Red – 5.8% – Solid caramel malty base, with nice sweetness and lingering bitterness.
    The Rest

  • Falcon Cloak Blonde – 6.3% – Floral aroma. Some breadiness, some bitterness, some honey sweetness. Pretty interesting.
  • Freya’s Wit – 4.7% – Apricot wheat ale. Strong apricot flavor to light bready finish, with some subtle bitterness. Bit too sweet for me, though.

I tend to be a bit of an optimist with my bike rides. Leave home at 1pm, leisurely visit four breweries, and be home before nightfall? No problem! At least I was smart enough to bring my biking lights and an extra layer or two. Next time I bike out to Woodinville I’ll be sure to leave earlier. Yeah, that’s the ticket.
