After a nice afternoon exploring the area my wife and I decided to stop in for a bite to eat and to check some brews off of our list. It was a gorgeous day so there were tons of people in the area and many went to Forecasters Pub but we did not have to wait long at all, maybe 5 minutes, until we were paged.

We ordered some ESB's to have them from the source since we had only tried it from bottles. I honestly did not notice much difference which led me to try a beer that looked to be recently written on the dry-erase board which houses the beers on tap at that moment. Blondage Pale Ale was amazing and refreshing, after I review 18 more beers I will add it since it blew my mind and others must know about it.

I ordered a pretzel as an appetizer, which went well with the ESB. My wife ordered a simple greens salad while I had the bratwurst and those did not disappoint which I wish I could say about the overpriced and sub-par Mac & Cheese that I had been looking forward to enjoying. Not a bad overall meal and it could have been much more expensive given the touristy feel.

There was a small but decent gift shop area near the entrance where you purchase tickets for the brewery tours.

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.
