Big Al Brewing out in the West Seattle suburbs is just what the doctor ordered. Big Al Brewing is a huge breath of fresh air the Pac NW beer scene is looking for. Al and I talked for a few hours talking – beer, brewing and the beer business. It was awesome. Oh don’t forget all during which I was also sampling some great beers. Started out with a great Belgium and finished with a thick one time only brew (Lil Al 80 Series Stout). This is a brew they are experimenting with and only do a one time only batch on the smaller barrel system they have set up. Now if the Lil Al brew goes over well that beer then will become a beer they will brew on the large system. So from the start the 5 main brews on tap where just awesome. Loved the Smoked Porter which is the newest of the beers they had just put out. Wow the smokiness was just perfect. So after trying all the beers it was time for the tour. Al took me all over the brewery showing me everything. This was a great time. Al really loves what he does and the saying at Big Al Brewing – “Live your dreams, drink ours.” This is truly a great motto. A must stop for all beer enthusiasts in the Pac NW. They have a great tap room set up and the prices are very reasonable. They also have WiFi and if you bring your lunch or dinner you are set. I will be back for sure. Take a growler home I sure wish I had.
