I’ve had a few friends come to visit from out of town, which means BREWERY TOURS! One of the breweries I went to with my pals was Maritime Pacific Brewing Company. They’re located in Ballard, have outdoor seating, a parking lot, and yummy beer. One of the first things that caught my eye was how many bar patrons were getting growlers filled. I scolded myself for not bringing mine. Maritime offers a great sampler, in that you get to choose which beers you sample. Some breweries choose for you. I don’ t like barley wine, or porters much, so I prefer when you get to select your own. Maritime also has a nice wide variety of beers to choose from. I’ve had the Red Alt and the Old Seattle Lager, but this time I got to try their Imperial Pale Ale, the Nightwatch Dark Amber Ale, and a few dry hopped ales. They have a great selection and variety. Plus, what’s not to love about the ‘Jolly Roger Taproom’. This is a fun place to hangout, the beers are excellent, and all were happy. I’ll be back, with out of town friends, or locals.
