Hemlock State Brewery returns!!

On Friday, May 19th, Hemlock State Brewery opened to the public at their new location at 23601 56th Ave W in Mountlake Terrace.

For the first licensed brewery in Shoreline (founded in 2012), it’s a huge step from the garage-based operation they closed last August as they embarked on this journey to expand and establish a local gathering place. (see previous article)

Whether you miss their Saturday morning growler fills, their “Hibeernation” on tap at local pubs, or have never heard of them, it’s worth checking them out.

You are sure to find something delicious to suit your taste. Starting with four beers and three ciders on tap, they have room to expand to 20 taps. You can buy a glass to drink there, or get a fresh 32-oz ‘crowler’ or your own growler filled to take away.

Get a pint of beer for $6, or a 32 oz ‘crowler’ to go, filled and sealed while you watch, for $7.

If you didn’t bring your growler, they’ve got you covered with growlers for sale, as well Hemlock State pints and tulip glasses, and super-soft t-shirts.

Kids and dogs are welcome at Hemlock State Brewery

Hemlock State’s founders, some of whom are parents of young kids themselves, really wanted to create a space where adults could enjoy themselves, but also one where families were welcome. What better time to check them out than during this 3-day weekend?
