The Best Breweries Near Everett, Washington

At Large Brewing and Tap Room

Location: North Everett/Downtown

Best for: Budget-friendly brews, large groups, IPA lovers

At Large Brewing and Tap Room is right by Everett’s waterfront. It has an industrial feel softened by quirky beer-centric signs and friendly staff. 

You can get a bang for your buck here. Their pint pours are super generous, and their flights are as well. 

Note: They don’t offer free tastings, so if you’re curious about a lot of different beers, I recommend going for the flight. 

Lovers of IPAs will particularly enjoy the menu, as there’s a great selection to try. On our last visit, my husband and I tried several, including the Full Monty Black IPA, which tasted like an extra hoppy porter, and their At Large West Coast IPA. 

The flight tried at At Large.

Even if you’re not an IPA person, you have some other options for drinks, including a few ciders on tap.

The brewery is huge, with plenty of inside and outside seating. It’s also kid- and dog-friendly, so bring the entire crew!

While they don’t serve food, they have food trucks that stop by on the weekends, and there are other things to keep you entertained while you sip. Enjoy a round of shuffleboard, play board games or test your luck at corn hole. 

Crucible Brewing

Location: South Everett

Best for: Sports fans, groups of friends, dog lovers

Crucible Brewing was started by two childhood friends who love beer. The brewery opened in 2015, and it’s already made a name for itself as one of the best in Everett. Come here for great beer and to hang out with some friendly, welcoming people. 

Their tap list has a lot of variety, but one beer I highly recommend is the Kome As You Are Japanese rice lager. It has a lower alcohol by volume (ABV) and a crisp, yet toasty flavor. If you’re looking for a light beer, this is it. 

Want something with a little more body? Try their Not Another Amber! red ale. Or, if you can’t make up your mind (understandable), spin their colorful Wheel of Indecision, and leave it to fate.

Aside from a few snacks like chips, Crucible doesn’t serve food. However, food trucks can be found at the premises on occasion. Follow their social media accounts for updated information. 

You can also order from other restaurants in the area like the Vietnamese restaurant next door (they make a mean Banh Mi).

Come to Crucible to grab a beer, watch sports, hang out with friends, and, most importantly, say “Hello!” to the resident dog, Brewno. 

It’s great any night, but if you happen to visit on Monday, you can also take part in their weekly trivia night.

Middleton Brewing

Location: South Everett

Best for: Unusual beers, dog lovers, tasty food

If you’re looking for super innovative and interesting ales, head to the quirky Middleton Brewing

You’re in for a treat when you seek out this tucked-away brewery in South Everett. Their beers are creative and interesting. 

Want to try a Cookie Crisp cereal-infused stout or a coconut brown ale? How about a jalapeno pale ale or deep fried pickle sour? If you’re the type of person who likes trying the most unusual thing on the menu, this is the brewery for you.

In addition to great beer, they also have great food. Try any of their delicious specialties, which include beer cheese soup (made with their jalapeno pale ale) and beer cheese nachos. They also serve tasty pizzas and sandwiches. 

This is probably the most dog-friendly place on this list. You can expect to be greeted by the pub’s pup mascot on your visit, and well-behaved dogs are always welcome.

The Independent Beer Bar

Location: North Everett/Downtown

Best for: Friendly bartenders, post-work drinks, central Everett location

The Independent Beer Bar in downtown Everett is the place to go if you want a chill, low-key spot to hang out after work. With beer, wine and cider on tap, they have a little something for everyone. 

It may be on the smaller side, but this only underscores its coziness. Visit on the last Wednesday of the month to play trivia, and come by any night for shuffleboard or board games. They have nostalgic classics like Pictionary, Life, Battleship and Scrabble.

On our latest visit, my husband and I ordered a flight to try a mix of their current drinks on tap. 

You can find something interesting, no matter your flavor preference. In particular, we loved the seasonal spiced cider, their super light lager and the rich and smooth brown ale. 

While they don’t have an extensive food menu, what they do have is delicious. They serve generous portions of Ukrainian dumplings in two flavors – beef or potato.

There’s a reason this is the only food item they have. It’s just that good.

If you’re craving something different, however, they have a stack of takeout menus you can peruse so you can order something from a place nearby. 

Diamond Knot Brewery and Alehouse

Location: Mukilteo

Best for: Waterfront views, a large variety of beers and extensive food options

Diamond Knot Brewery and Alehouse is one of the older breweries on this list. It opened in 1994, and the founders chose the name as a nod to an incredible and unlikely salvage of a ship called Diamond Knot back in 1947. 

As avid divers, the founders wanted their brewery to be tied to that story of perseverance. It all seems appropriate, given that Diamond Knot has been a staple on the Mukilteo waterfront ever since.

The laidback brewery and alehouse has an extensive beer and food menu. The bar portion of the brewery is a cool, toss-your-peanuts-on-the-floor type of place. So, grab a bowl of peanuts and munch on them while indulging in their IPAs (their specialty), lagers or blonde ales. 

If you’re hungry, you have ample choices. Grab some standard pub grub like wings, nachos or fries. If being by the water has you craving seafood, they also serve chowder and fish and chips.

This is a great place for the entire family. When you visit, make sure you leisurely spend some time by the waterfront and watch the ferries make their way to Whidbey Island.

Spada Farmhouse Brewery

The delicious tangerine Kolsch and blueberry sour

Location: Snohomish

Best for: Sours, a cozy relaxed environment, proximity to other fun shops

Spada Farmhouse Brewery is located in the vibrant, historic district of Snohomish. 

Comfortable and homey, this is a great spot to take the whole family for good brews and food.

Indulge in Spada’s delicious comfort food options. Some popular choices are the mouth-watering poutine, mac and cheese, and a tangy hot honey chicken sandwich. Their tasty food pairs perfectly with their beers. 

On our visit, my husband and I enjoyed their tangerine Kolsch and blueberry sour. The Kolsch was smooth and light with a subtle sweetness and pleasant citrusy undertones. The sour was also delightfully unusual, with a maltier taste than other sours. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed them.

In addition to the beers they brew, Spada carries a selection of beers from other local breweries and several cider options too. 

The staff is friendly, the space is inviting and the location is perfect. 

Come out to visit Spada to get some good drinks, then continue to explore the small businesses, vintage shops, cafes and bakeries of downtown Snohomish.
