Cheapest growler fills I have found: $9 across the board. Quality food that had healthy options that were not crappy. The beer is what it is, nothing super risky or spectacular, just good ole' beer. Server was swamped with tables, not much help, felt sorry for her b/c she was rocking it. She gave us 2 extra beers when she realized she brought out the wrong kinds. This made us walk around in a nearby park for a bit to get some air. Always hike east of here and stop by here or Rogue/Issaquah Brewhouse for fills before heading home. Methinks they only carry their beer and no others but may be mistaking. Good staff besides serves, cooks helped us find wicked hicking trail, thanks mate. Real, down-to-earth, mix of patrons, some thugs, some tourists, some wealthy locals. Good times in a beautiful part of the world.

Stopped for lunch on my way visit family further north.

After what seemed like a looong drive from the freeway, I entered "downtown" Snoqualmie, Washington. A bit of driving ensued before I found that the brewery was not on the main drag but a block away.

Industrial looking place, essentially a warehouse, with lots of concrete. The dining area is a couple of stories high, with the bar towards the back. The bar seemed a bit small for the room, with only room for about 6 people or so. I was a little suprised by how many beers they had on-tap, probably because of the tiny bar area.

It was a bit slow, with no one at the tables in the dining area, with locals and off-duty employees at the bar, bantering with the waitstaff. While the guy behind the bar spent much of his time chatting, no empty pint glasses were allowed to languish on the bar, and he even gave me a couple of unprompted samples in addition to the two pints I chose (Wildcat IPA and their harvest ale). I had no opportunity to be able to tell if the employees have any special beer knowledge or not, and I was really only there for refueling purposes before getting back on the road.

Food was unremarkable but competently made. I had half of a deli sandwich that did an unspectacular yet successful job of staving off hunger.

This is really nothing more than a brewery with a tasting room that happens to serve food. As such, the place gets the job done without too much fanfare. Anyone seeking more of a restaurant experience would probably be better off going elsewhere.

A: Average atmosphere. It was a blend of locals and tourist so pretty quiet and odd. No beer talk just people eating and leaving.

Q: Quality of all Snoqualmie beers are average to good but not stellar by any means.

S: Service was sordove slow, It took way to long to get sandwiches with 10 people working in the place. Never over firendly or overly fast for sure.

S: Selection was about 10 handles of their standards and a seasonal. Actually pretty boring, nothing more than what i cant find in a store

F: Average. Sandwiches are somewhat good but waaay overpriced. My itialian sandwich sandwich was $12 and I could have bought an equal at a deli mart for $5! $33 for 2 sandwiches and 2 average beers! Forget that. Wont go back

One street removed from the "main" street in the little town of Snoqualmie Falls sits a giant warehouse of a building. It's obviously where they do all of their brewing. I can't say for sure, but I would bet the taproom was added after they had some success, because it is obviously not meant to be a restaurant.

There are few tables, a tiny bar, and a row of stools near the door. That's about it. One television hangs over the bar, but few other decorations adorn the walls. Still, it has a nice, authentic feel to it. It is what it is.

The food choices are all simple and straight forward by necessity. I have no idea where they hide the kitchen, because between the office space and brewing equipment, there doesn't seem to be any room leftover.

Then again, all of the food could be made with a single toaster oven. They have baked sandwiches, toasted sandwiches, cold sandwiches, soup, salad, baked pizzas and an assortment of appetizers. So it was with much delight and surprise that I found I absolutely loved my sandwich.

A genius combination of smoked turkey, provolone, jalapeno, tomato, red onion and chipotle mayonnaise on Rosemary Diamante bread. They don't have much to work with, but inventive combinations and quality ingredients sure make up for it!

The taproom features their five standard beers: Wildcat IPA, Copperhead Pale, Steam Train Porter, PGA Amber and Haystack Hefeweizen. They also have two beers on nitro tap and a seasonal. Those were the pale, an oatmeal stout and an octoberfest, respectively.

Nothing really blew me away, but they were all very drinkable. Most were a little too conservative for my tastes, but would surely appeal to most everyone. That is to say, nothing is outstanding, but I'd have no trouble drinking a pint of any of it.

That being said, the porter and the stout were by far my favorites. Not everywhere has a good stout on nitro, though they all should!

Stopped by because I saw the sign off the highway, knew nothing about the place.

Small, warehouse feel. Simple, basic beer paraphernalia around (Chimay, Sleemans, etc...) Nothing too amazing. Says small town brewery who happens to have a tap room.

Had the IPA, super delicious! Ordered open-face BBQ pork with pineapple sandwich (special of the day). Was good (sweet with a hint of zip) but not amazing. Service was fine.

People coming in and buying bottles, filling growlers. Has wi-fi so people are around working, having a pint.

A plain place but that's ok. The beer is great, the food good - and that's what matters. They care about the beer and want a place for people to enjoy it. Small time operation, but worth stopping in.

stopped in at snoqualmie on a rainy october day after a morning of hiking around the snoqualmie falls area.

the brewery is located a block off the main drag and resembles a warehouse...the interior also has that warehouse feel with some cliche beer memorabilia on the walls.

The service was just fine but nothing extraordinary.

The tap selection featured a page of stand-by selections (pale, ipa, amber, porter, etc) with an octoberfest and lemongrass beer on the specialty rotation. I believe all the stand-by's were also available in 22oz bombers. The guest "belgian tap" was North Coast Brother Thelonious.

I had a half reuben with some nice spicy thai chips (in a bag) and the lady just had some spinach dip...nothing too special here, slightly above average pub fare.

worth a stop if hiking at the falls, but not worth a trip
