    Bottle selection is miserable. 12 taps with a decent selection. Growler fills only, no pints. A pass at this point.

    If the trips to Bellingham are in response to this new place not being very good, take the extra 5 minutes and head to Special Brews in north Lynnwood. Great bottle selection, solid rotating tap list, growler fills, and the service is awesome!

    Stumbled upon Special Brews on Saturday. Nice people and great bottle selection.

    yeah I live in Mount Vernon so either way it's quite the little drive for me.

    Special Brews is great but damn she packs that place on Fri/Sat. nights..... last 3 or 4 times i've been in it's been borderline standing room only.

    Elizabeth Station isn't quite up too par with Special Brews yet but looks promising.... nice big space with plenty of room too grow....a remodel and 20+ taps sometime soon they say....

    Yeah, it does get crazy in there. I try to get there on my lunch break around 11 or 11:30; pretty much get the place to myself then.
