Pint Points

  • What a strange and snowy week! Most breweries are back to regular business hours! Be careful on the roads on the way home from your favorite Tap Trail stops.
  • Lost Giants is spicing things up and making it feel a little hotter than it is with their weekly infusion! This week, escape the snow with a habanero infused pineapple cider. Spicy and sweet, and the perfect escape from the 8 snow days in a row we’ve had.
  • Make sure you stop by Overflow Taps’ 3 year anniversary party, Lynden! They’ll be doing a special prize and releasing some special beer collaborations. Congrats on 3 years, guys!

-New Pints-

Aslan Brewing Co.

Mosaic IPA

One of the only single-hop IPAs brewed by Aslan, using of course, Mosaic. The dank aroma leads way to a fruit bomb, as if blueberry limeade where added. A unique malt bill consisting of nearly only Vienna malt and oats holds it all up.

7.2% ABV

Boundary Bay Brewery & North Fork Brewery

It’s a Sleeper- Belgian Strong Amber Brut

When North Fork and Boundary Bay brew together it’s likely to get a bit crazy! With the final gravity falling below the density of water (0°P OG), this experimental Belgian-style ale is no exception. Meld in aromas of stonefruit and light cherry, flavors of biscuity and light chocolate maltiness and an extraordinarily dry, brandy-like finish, and you’ve got yourself a taste of madness!

8.7% ABV

Chuckanut Brewery & Overflow Taps

Lynden Light Lager

Released for Overflow Taps’ (Lynden location) 3 year anniversary party, Chuckanut created a special lager just for Lynden! If you’re in the area, or just love Chuckanut and Overflow, make sure you make it out there to try it for yourself.

GRUFF Brewing Co.

Belgian Brown

Made with Ginger, Coriander, Belgian Candy Syrup and @skagitvalleymalting. Perfect to share with a buddy.

9% ABV

Herb’s Cider

Pianissimo Pink Pearl Apple Cider

Enjoy an Herbwurst and their special Valentines Day Pink Pearl varietal apple cider!

Kulshan Brewing Co.

Jungleland Hazy IPA

Juicy and smooth, this beer is hazy in appearance, but bright in aroma and flavor. Bursting with notes of tangerine, watermelon, strawberry, and ripe tropical fruit, this beer is low in bitterness and high in hop flavor and aroma. Balanced and enticing, Jungleland is not the sort of IPA that Kulshan typically brews, but one that they are proud to offer you nonetheless.

Nor’ Easter Barleywine

Released both in bottles and on draft at their Barrel-Aged party last weekend, this English-Style Barleywine is smooth, boozy in the best way, and delicious.

Pomegranate Apero Brut

Light pink in color with a magnificent white head, this beer is refreshing and truly unique. Enticing aromas of pomegranate and grapefruit, along with milder notes of chamomile and coriander, create a perfumy bouquet that cannot be ignored. On the tongue, Pomegranate Apero is silky and smooth, with mild fruity sweetness and a clean, dry finish. Unusual but approachable, you may find yourself coming back for a second pint.

North Fork Brewery & Overflow Taps

Oatmeal Red Ale

This red ale is extra smooth and crushable with a silky mouthfeel from the oats in the mash. Made for the 3rd anniversary of the Lynden Overflow Taps location, make sure you stop by for a pint or two in celebration of Lynden’s craft beer hub!

Structures Brewing

Navigation Wheat Saison

Navigation is a wheat saison, brewed with Amarillo hops and fermented with a classic Saison yeast strain and a touch of Brett. C.

7.4% ABV

Earthbound Pale Ale

Pale Ale brewed with an abundance of oats, and dry hopped with Calypso and Citra .

Creamy mouthfeel, along with notes of orange sherbet and lime.

3.7% ABV

Wander Brewing

Cranberry Beret

Cranberry Beret is back and in cans for the first time ever! This IPA is fermented on Washington grown cranberries. Drink some at the brew hall, or take it home with you!
