Bellingham has some world class breweries. There are more breweries being built here than, arguably, any city in Washington State. Soon we’ll have double the breweries per capita of Seattle, WA. The options available to us are quite impressive and this doesn’t even include the amazing diverse selection that’s about to be available to us in the coming months. Those amazing breweries also give rise to some incredible tap houses. We have the breadth and selection of Elizabeth Station and the unique music inspired taps of Green Frog. Bellingham’s beer is an incubator of culture. Art, music, discussion, community and so much more are cultivated at our taphouses and breweries. Bellingham continues to receive accolades for not only it beer, but for the community that it inspires and lives within it. We live in a heck of a city.
Now Bellingham has another title to add: “Snobbiest Beer City in America.” The folks over at Priceonomics, found that 92% of bars in Bellingham do not serve either Bud Light, Coors Light or Miller Light. They say this lack of macro-inspired tap selection gives us this title.
