Our second cidery visit of the day was at Locust Cider & Brewing. We’ve been to another location (Ballard) before but this branch is located along Alki Beach.
We dropped in on a Saturday afternoon (around 3:00pm) and it was busy. Lots of dogs and kiddies everywhere. There’s a small play area in the back. TV’s had the XFL on.
They have a stack of board games at the front along with some video games (NES mini, SNES mini and Sega Genesis mini).

12 cider flavours on tap (cores and seasonal & rotating). You go up to the bar to order.
Nice that you can sample a few things; one of the workers mixed the dark cherry with the vanilla bean, an interesting unexpected combo.
They also have a small food menu (snacks and flatbread pizzas).
We decided to try four: honey pear, strawberry vanilla, apricot and hibiscus. We liked the apricot the most.
The rest were lightly flavoured. LC is as we expected.
