Every time we’re in Seattle, we’ve made sure to drop into Brownrigg to get our fix.
We came by on Friday (around 7:00pm) and discovered one of his minions, MacKenzie, was running the taproom. Super friendly and chatty. Guess what, taproom is open weekdays now! Sweet.
Someone got a growler fill of the single malt whiskey barrel aged.
Award that they won in 2018 for their rose top.
Closeup of all their old cider flavours they’ve made. I want to try lychee!
There’s even a cider sheet now.
7 flavours available and we sampled 6 of them.
Single malt whiskey barrel aged
Semi dry, whiskey notes are prominent.
This was our favourite. Chris won 2nd place in an Oregon Cider competition for it. Delicious blood orange flavour with a hint of clove and cardamom. We filled a squealer ($8.00 US) for home.
Slight tartness but well balanced passionfruit flavour.
This smelled heavenly, like ham from a ham and pineapple pizza. Tasted even better; like grilled pineapple. Incredibly smooth and balanced.
White peach basil
Not too sweet peach flavour but with a hint of herbaceous, basil goodness.
This iteration was very cardamom forward. Much less sweet than last time.
Another visit during Easter weekend.
This was fantastic.
We brought along some friends and they left with a squealer ($8.00 US).
Some of the best ciders we’ve tasted and there’s always constantly new flavours/tweaking going on which keeps us coming back for more.
