Sarah’s Beer of the Week 07.26.12
There’s a cool looking spot in my ‘hood that I’ve been wanting to try for months. I don’t know why I waited so long, but finally I went to Local 360 in Belltown. They only serve food and drink that is produced locally! They offer three beers on tap, and for my beer of the week I went with Flagship Red Alt from Maritime Pacific Brewing Company.
It’s highly drinkable. Bold malt, well balanced hops, and refreshing. It also has good carbonation and clocks in at 5.2%. Easy to drink in the summer. Matt tried the IPA from Pike Brewing Company (6.5%). That means I got to try that one too. Yum! Local 360 makes some really interesting cocktails, and they have a great menu. PBnJ Bon Bons, Pigs Ears, Mac n Cheese, oysters, rabbit…great assortment, and all from our area. The bartenders were fantastic, although I think technically they’re mixologists. I had a great time, enjoyed my beer, and am looking forward to going back.
