Wonderful local brewery encompassing three separate spaces/concepts: the Public House, Upstairs Pizza and Lowell’s Taproom. The Public House is surrounded by lush gardens, tree canopy and plenty of outdoor seating. The space was warm, inviting, packed from lunch to the very late hours of the morning each day when we were there and feels a little more like a secret garden hideout than a bar. We enjoyed the very floral and citrusy Optimist IPA, Willapa Bay oyster shooters, fried pickles (the best I’ve ever had) and the fish plate (like a charcuterie plate with pickled veggies, baguette but lots smoked fish instead of meat). Great beer, excellent food and a perfect spot to spend the afternoon with friends or a good book on the patio.
