Salish Sea Brewing

I’ve biked to Salish Sea Brewing in Edmonds twice now (once from the Interurban trail, once on a return trip from Poulsbo via the Kingston-Edmonds ferry) and both times I’ve had trouble finding the magic route out of town that isn’t too steep and connects easily to the Interurban. Regardless, Salish Sea is a nice neighborhood spot, with free pretzels and various games available (family friendly options, as well as Cards Against Humanity). Just recently they expanded into the space next door, and the pictures I’ve seen of the bigger taproom look pretty great. So I guess another visit is in order.

Salish Sea Brewing

Salish Sea Brewing — Edmonds, WA

    Rob’s Picks

  • Session IPA – 4.7% – Not as light-bodied as other sessions IPAs, which is nice. Citrus and light tropical hops with a light caramel malt base. Bitterness that blends back in well.
  • Dayton Street Session ISA – 4.7% – Collaboration with American Brewing. Big citrus aroma and flavor balanced with plenty of caramel and biscuit malt. Quite nice. Surprisingly solid mouthfeel for a session.
  • Drop Anchor IPA – 6.7% – Citrus and earthy hops with a solid biscuit malt backbone. Decent bitterness.
  • Salish IPA – 6.5% – Citrus and herbal hops with some caramel and biscuity maltiness. Bit more subdued than the Drop Anchor.
  • Roasted Amber – 5.2% – Sweet start with pecan and caramel to nice roastiness. Hint of smoke. Very drinkable.
  • NW Red – 6% – Caramel maltiness, light nuttiness. Smooth. Some herbal, earthy hops.
  • Prior Porter – 5.2% – Big sweet coffee/chocolate flavors. Subtle citrus edge. Smooth and crisp.
    The Rest

  • Amber – 5.2% – Caramel, some biscuit malt, touch of honey. Some herbal hops and bitterness, but otherwise it’s an amber.
  • Honey Golden – 4% – Bitter, with biscuity maltiness. Pretty crisp, but not much honey flavor.
  • Pale Ale – 5.2% – Caramel, light breadiness, biscuit, and hint of honey. Some bitterness that builds up and lingers.

I hope on my next ride to Salish Sea I’m able to figure out a better way back to the Interurban. Three’s a charm, right?
