Washington State Off The Beaten Path: 78 reviews and 108 photos
Redhook Brewing was a craft beer pioneer, starting in 1981 brewing Belgian styled beer to the confusion of beer drinkers in the area. With the switch to English styles beers and use of locally grown hops, the brewery took off and needed a bigger facility. I did a tour at their brewery in 1994 and it was free, great fun and best of all, unlimited free samples of their many fine beers. They also had a very cool pub called The Trolleyman with some of their beers served cask-conditioned.
Unfortunately, they became too big and sold out to Budweiser to gain access to their regional distribution network. This meant their beer could be found everywhere, even in my South Florida home area. It never tasted quite the same. In fact, many started calling it Budhook.
