Place is good, not a lot of options but enough for a beer stop.

One of my favorite breweries. Quality brews, usually a good selection, and a great atmosphere. Always a good time at Wander.

Wander's taproom feels like a barn, or maybe a warehouse, because that's basically what it is, an industrial warehouse. There are plenty of tables, inside and outside, and the place was crowded on our recent visit, full of folks enjoying the beer. They don't serve food, but food trucks visit, and the pizza truck was quite good.

The beer is the reason you're here. Wander has a good variety of beers. I've had about four, and looked over the list. They don't do everyday ordinary beers. If you're looking for a lineup of pale ale, IPA, hefe, red ale, porter, and stout, you won't find most of those here. They've got Global Mutt, a Baltic Porter, and a rye IPA. They do sours and saisons, and a California Common. In short, you'll see styles and beers here that you won't find anywhere else. The quality of the beers is quite good.

The service is friendly and knowledgeable.

I don't get to Bellingham often, but I'll be back. I thought Wander was more interesting than many of the Seattle breweries I've been to.

This was one of my fave local breweries - right in my 'hood. We've been patrons since the opening. We love the beer, beertenders, location & variety of food trucks. Unfortunately, we will no longer be drinking beers at the brewery. Last week we went inside to chill & watch the March Madness finals & it was anything but chill. There were so many dogs inside...on table benches, barking & the worst - a dog pissed on the floor. Don't get me wrong, I love dogs but how about dogs outside not inside. Such a bummer!

Solid spot making up the good scene developing in Bellingham. Had a growler of their rye IPA to-go and enjoyed 16 oz of Robust Porter Nitro on tap. Samples upon request. Easy going vibe, picnic tables adjacent to the parking lot, cooler of bottles beside the counter, reasonable prices. Straight forward and enjoyable.

Holy shit: wow what an incredible place. The beers I had were completely ridiculous-seriously sheeple. Get to this place. And get there fast.

Love the vibe. Solid selection. The barrels and brewery equipment is right there with you in the tap room.

Nice place. SoCal style, a brewery in a where-house with a roll-up garage. Combination seating, inside/outside. Quality product. Service is good. They need a couple of guest taps.

Overall- A place I will visit again.

Cool location in an old railway hangar of sorts. Can be a bit difficult to find, and parking can be an issue when busy. Selection is nice, always has the year round beers on-tap, with a handful of one-offs and rotators. Pricing is fair. Food trucks do come and go, but it can be a bit clunky at times getting food. Layout could be greatly improved, but the beers they make are great.

A beautiful American built brewhouse in an old refurbished warehouse. Friendly staff who is actually knowledgeable about the beers they serve. Cool funky live edge tables with beer hall benches. Kid friendly. Food trucks daily. Outdoor seating on the patio when the weather is accommodating. Most importantly, truly unique beers that satisfy. Looking forward to their barrel releases. I could drink here all day and plan to return!

Brewhouse is open and adjoining to the hall. It's a rather industrial environment with reclaimed wooden tables and chairs. There are some picnic tables as well for outdoor seating. Rotating food carts provide some food but one of the days I was there they had Goat Mountain pizza. The smoke from their fire severely hampered the enjoyment of the beer. They have friendly service although many times they have only one server and you have to wait for quite a while to be served. They have very good prices on their beer for pints and growlers however their beer is thus far very similar in flavor and somewhat tasteless. Hopefully they bring some of the recipes around.

I believe Wander is a definite contender for best brewery in the state. I have enjoyed each beer I have tried from them and look forward to each new addition they put out. The owner's and small staff are always friendly and very knowledgeable which is such a plus. I think the other brewer's in Bellingham better step their game up if they want to compete.
