Had some time to kill in Woodinville, and as the Fish Brewing outpost was closed,, figured I might as well try this place at long last.

The forecaster pub is nothing particularly special, with something of sport bar vibe and not much else (there's a large dining room area with a wrap around bar area in the middle of it). It's fairly good size, with a smattering of TV's all over the place, this day turned to various bowl games. Not a whole lot going on here otherwise, but it is what it is I guess. I didn't order any food, but from what I can tell, expect your typical pub grub, which from what I saw consisted of wings, quesadillas, burgers, pulled pork sandwiches, etc. As for the beer, they had around 17 different selections the day I stopped in, which from what I could tell, appeared to be a fairly typical amount. The draft list was made up of around 10 or 11 Redhook beers, and then 6 or 7 beers from Kona. I opted for a glass of the big ballard imperial IPA, along with the 2014 Bourbrrrr that was on tap. I actually had the latter beer some years ago, and as it turns out, age has done a lot for this beer. It was surprisingly smooth and delicious, with some nice lingering bourbon flavor. As for the imperial ballard, it sucked, and I ended up leaving over half of my 10 ounce pour. It was easily one of the most lame DIPA's I've had in some time. That being said, service was actually quite good. The young lady serving me was on the ball, and was happy to pour me a sample pour of the Bourbrrrrr without any charges (it was just a 2 ounce pour but even so, I was impressed).

Shrug. There are plenty of good places for food in Woodinville, but I gather few pubs are serving the sort of BS food menu you can find at Redhook. If one is in the mood for a Friday's or Applebee's kind of dinning experience, then this is definitely the place to come. Beer here is a bit better than so-so I guess, which I guess is something of a draw as well.

Pretty sure this isn't some place I need to revisit any time soon

When my Dad and I visited Seattle in the 80's I got some Red hook ESB at a liquor store and loved it. On the six-pack label there was an ad to visit the brewery (which is in a suburb of the Seattle metropolitan area) so I talked Dad in to going there. We toured the immaculately clean inner workings of the brewery. Then enjoyed some fresh beer at the bar afterwards, There were free samples offered before we did this, but I wanted more! This was a big deal to me because American microbrews were basically in their infancy. Great memory!

The Granddaddy of craft beer. A gorgeous building and brewery. The Forecaster's Public House is enormous with lots of TV's and room for fun gatherings. Impressive beer assortment with nice flights available. I got to try the bourbon barrel Blackhook Porter and it popped. We had an order of sweet potato fries to compliment the brews. Our server was sweet and gave us a couple of their old taster glasses to take home. She even let us sample the cask offering. Set in the beautiful village of Woodinville, this place should be a must for beer fans. Wish we'd taken the time to check out the brewery itself.

The environment was nice and a big cabin feel and a lot of happy faces, but this place has watered itself down to offer no beer selections beyond what is commonly available on the store shelves and most of those I am less than impressed with. I was hoping to try their (less commercialized) bests, but left very early and disappointed.
Cannot speak for the food.

I'm not the biggest fan of many of their beers or their mega-"craft" status. Still, this place has a great location just off of the bike trail, an interesting tour, the food is good, the service is usually friendly and they always have some interesting guest and cask beers that are not their standard mass-produced offerings.
