Whilst on Bainbridge Island, we had to check out a brewery.
Bainbridge Island Brewing was nearby, and looked inviting.
Inside, they have the bar, as well as some tables and an upstairs that partially overlooks the space.
In order to try a few different beers, I went with a sampler and choose their kolsch, a scotch ale, a barleywine and an IPA.
And, of course, a small cheese plate to accompany it. And by cheese plate, I mean a package of smoked gouda cheese, some rice crackers in a ziploc bag and a paper towel. But, I don't hate it.
Each of these were great. I especially liked their kolsch. The IPA here was good too. It had a nice balance.
The cheese was delicious and I ate every bite of it. The best part, though, is that they were very puppy-friendly so I got to watch all kinds of pups, drink beer and eat cheese. What could be better.
