Bainbridge Brewing expands with new alehouse in Winslow

Bainbridge Brewing will soon be opening a new second location on Bainbridge Island, in downtown Winslow, to be named the Bainbridge Brewing Alehouse, the company recently announced.

For its second retail location, the brewery purchased the popular local hangout previously known as the

Alehouse on Winslow (500 Winslow Way E.), and will reopen it soon, officials said, under the Bainbridge Brewing brand.

Bainbridge Brewing will soon be opening a new second location on Bainbridge Island, in downtown Winslow, to be named the Bainbridge Brewing Alehouse, the company recently announced.

For its second retail location, the brewery purchased the popular local hangout previously known as the Alehouse on Winslow (500 Winslow Way E.), and will reopen it soon, officials said, under the Bainbridge Brewing brand.

“We all love the Alehouse and have happily delivered our kegs to them for five years,” said Russell Everett, the brewmaster and island brewery’s co-founder.

“So, when the owners approached us to see if we’d be interested in taking it over, we jumped at the chance. We’ve long wanted to be able to more easily share our beers with downtown Winslow residents and visitors walking off the ferry exploring our beautiful island.”

The new Bainbridge Brewing Alehouse will operate much as it did before, Everett said.

“It’s a great space and an easy transition,” he explained. “We’ll give the new space a quick tune-up and reopen it as soon as possible.”

The newly rebranded alehouse will feature a standing lineup of many of Bainbridge Brewing’s award-winning craft beers, plus other Northwest craft beer guest taps and draft ciders.

There also are plans to focus on more local and other Northwest wines, including those from Bainbridge Island wineries. And while the snack menu is still being finalized, the new owners said patrons can expect to see a variety of tasty options — and the open-door policy regarding outside take-out still stands.

Unlike the brewery’s existing taproom at Coppertop Park, which remains open and unchanged, the new Alehouse in Winslow will remain strictly for a 21-and-older crowd.

The new Alhouse will also continue to host weekly trivia events, offer sports on TV, with several board games available and occasional music events by local bands.

Leashed and well-behaved dogs are allowed at both locations.

Bainbridge Brewing was founded in 2012 by father-and-son duo Chuck and Russell Everett. The brewery still serves craft beer to islanders and visitors seven days a week from its current Bainbridge Brewing Taproom in Coppertop Park (9415 Coppertop Loop NE, Suite 104). They self-distribute its award-winning craft beer in kegs and bottles to most of the island’s grocery stores, restaurants and pubs, as well as nearby Clearwater Casino and Resort.
