Audacity Brewing


Nestled in the charming town of Snohomish, Washington, I stumbled upon a hidden gem in the world of craft beer after hiking the Heather Lake Trail—Audacity Brewing! This family-owned sanctuary of brews emanates an adventurous spirit and a willingness to take bold risks, embodying the essence of audacity in every sip.

 Inspired by the Pacific Northwest 

Audacity Brewing is not just a brewery; it’s a homage to the Pacific Northwest, respecting the rich brewing traditions of the region while pushing the boundaries of conventional brewing. Being in the epicenter of diverse flora and fauna, it’s a place where the lush landscapes of Washington meet the refined art of brewing, creating a harmonious symphony of flavors. They were all out of the Belgian Quad we both wanted to try but we still had some great brews. (They also said there was a barleywine coming out soon... #BiL).

Family-Owned and Operated 

Walking into Audacity, you feel the warmth and intimacy that only a family-owned establishment can offer. It’s a place where passion for brewing intertwines with familial values, creating an atmosphere that is welcoming and genuine. Every guest is treated like a part of the family, welcomed to share stories over a beer... or two. The upstairs interior is for 21+ adults only, which creates a nice barrier for those who'd rather imbibe without children around.

A Symphony of Flavors  

Audacity’s small-batch production philosophy allows them to explore a plethora of styles and flavors. The selection here is ever-evolving, a rotating symphony of innovative and quality brews, ensuring that every visit offers a new flavor experience. It’s a paradise for those who, like me, love to venture into the unknown territories of taste! I ended up getting the Greed Island, Audax Strategem, and Blanc Bines IPA, while my GF got Petiliste Ruze, and Czech amber lager, and Enksy, a Patersbier. All in all, a great first impression. If we hike in the area again, which we will, we'll be back for sure.

 Sustainability: A Core Philosophy  

Audacity Brewing embodies a profound commitment to environmental stewardship. They have intertwined sustainability with their brewing process, ensuring each step is taken with the utmost consideration for the environment. By donating spent grain to local farms and repurposing spent hops for compost, Audacity is not only reducing waste but is also contributing to the ecological cycle of the local environment. Their meticulous conservation efforts, such as collecting water through their heat exchanger for brewing and cleaning, showcase their dedication to preserving the natural splendor of the region. It’s a seamless blend of ethical brewing and environmental consciousness, a testament to their resolve to make a positive impact on the planet. How awesome is that! I can get behind that. A brewery back in PA, where I used to live, used their spent grain for brunch. I'm almost positive...

A Tapestry of Stories  

 The taproom at Audacity is more than just a place to enjoy great beer; it’s a tapestry where stories are woven, and experiences are shared. It’s a hub where locals and visitors converge to create memories, a place where every individual is a thread in the vibrant fabric of Audacity’s community. There was unfortunately no food truck outside, even though we were starving. That would've made the trip truly complete, but they did have small snacks to tide us over. Per their website, they do occasionally host food truck events. I suppose just not on a late Sunday afternoon.

 A Commitment to Local Impact 

Audacity feels a deep responsibility to leave a lasting, positive imprint on society. They are not just brewers; they are nurturers of community spirit, supporters of local small businesses, and advocates of regional sourcing. Every initiative is a step towards creating a more cohesive and supportive community environment.
