Were you aware that beautiful Skagit County is now home to 11 local breweries?! This gorgeous corner of the PNW is cranking out some of our state's finest craft beers, and this is a fabulous time of year to head north and explore some seasonal suds. 


In Anacortes, be sure to visit Anacortes Brewery and Bastion Brewery.

La Conner Brewing Co. in La Conner and Birdsview Brewing in Concrete hold down each town's craft brew needs.


You can hit four breweries in Burlington, including Flyers Restaurant and BrewhouseChuckanut Brewery – South Nut, Garden Path Fermentation and Cardinal Craft Brewing Academy of Skagit Valley College. 

Perfect for a couple of travellers like us. A beer ‘flight’ (pun absolutely intended) at Flyers Restaurant near Burlington WA. Aviation decor throughout, friendly people, good food, great craft beer. Oh and if you’re lucky, you get to watch the planes land and take off too! . . . . #skagitfarmtopint #localbrews #drinkmorebeer #beerstagram #instabeer #suportlocalbusiness #over50 #livelifehappy #pnwdiscovered #travelbloggers #aboveusonlyskies #explorewashington #wanderwashington #washingtonexplored #upperleftusa #pnwisbeautiful #fly✈️ #instabeerofficial #springbreak2018 #airbase

Finishing out a lovely day in Skagit Valley. 10' Czech style pils collab with Wayfinder is incredible. #pilsner #skagitbeer

Mt. Vernon is home to Farmstrong Brewing CompanyNorth Sound Brewing Co. and Skagit River Brewery

Went to the #best #brewery from #2016 #2017 and #2018. Pretty cool set up they have. We did 10 tasters all we're great beers. The dark lager surprised me I was thinking it would taste like a stout.

In 2019, a new Skagit Farm to Pint Passport Tour will be unveiled, where if you collect all 11 stamps, you get a cool pint glass and all the bragging rights!


Enjoy all the great beer Skagit County has to offer, Rockaholics! And please drink responsibly. If you want to stay and make a weekend of it, two great central lodging options are the La Conner Channel Lodge and Country Inn!


Happy Adventuring,
