we had an absolute blast here, even with things being a bit reduced due to the virus, their inside space was hard to get a sense of, with tables removed for the most part and no bar seating, but they have a cool spot thats kind of cozy for what looks like a warehouse space even still, with some plants and mature trees around their neat patio, we posted up at a picnic table that had plenty of shade, and just ordered beers off a large chalkboard behind they bar, quite a nice selection on. we loved a citra hazy ipa and a bohemian pils, the quality was high enough to suggest all the beer in here is likely very good. took away some cans of italian pils and loved those as well. seems like they are doing hops and lagers very well, would have loved to been able to drink through more of them. comfortable outside, dog friendly, really good service that was super helpful with local recommendations too, and even though things are running a little different with the virus, it was still great to be able to spend some time here and drink some of their beers. they seem to be rightly building quite the name for themselves in the busy scene here. a great stop, cant wait to check them out again when things return to a little bit more normal!

Ordered colcannon, something that I had not even known existed until my visit. Hooray for trying new things as the food here was incredible. Root veggies and mushrooms in combination!
$10 fills here on Monday's. Chill vibe. Great beer. Fantastic food.

Culmination has a great vibe. Very laid back. The beer options are always aplenty and service is good despite the low employee count. Great local spot with local ingredients. When I think of a brewery usually 1 or 2 beers stand out as amazing beers ill always go back for. Culmination doesn't do that for me, they offer a seemingly endless array of new brews and a few (3?) Staples. All good to great but falling short for me in one area or another.

Cool place. Very laid back atmosphere. The afternoon we went in the garage door was up, giving the place a very open air feeling, which I'm a big fan of.

Friendly staff. The bartender knew what we he was doing (beer served in proper glassware, etc.), and was chatty in a good way.

Every beer I tried was good to very good. They had, if I remember correctly, about 16 beers on tap. Roughly half there's and half guest taps.

They also do food. We had a pretzel and some tacos, both of which were very tasty.

Overall, a very solid new brewery. I will definitely be returning.

I was glad to have the chance to visit Culmination during their opening week.

They have a small parking area in front and their appears to be plenty of street parking. I walked from the Lloyd Center and it is just a short stroll.

They have a few picnic tables out front and they have some nice landscaping.

There is a decent sized bar inside and the tanks are at the back of the room and are pretty much on display (there is a wall behind part of the bar that does obscure the view when sitting).

Service was very friendly and as expected beer savvy. They are free with samples and the entire staff was willing to engage patrons in conversation.

The beers are great. I had a wonderful Sasion and couple killer PNW IPAs. They had some well chosen guest taps added to their house beers.

They had a decent sized crowd that was made up of a mix of ages and almost a 50/50 gender split. I talked to a bunch of people and they were all very talkative and nice.

I hope they have a long and successful run and I know I will be back.
