Enumclaw’s first craft brewery opened for business in February under the watchful eye of owner/brewer Eric Brandjes.
He launched Cole Street Brewery just north of downtown and now offers beer by the glass in his tasting room and growlers to go. Kegs are available by request, depending upon availability. Thirsty patrons also can find Cole Street Brews in Enumclaw establishments like The Mint, Jackson’s, Rendezvous, The Rainier and Room 25; at Bootlegger’s in Buckley; and at NW Caps and Taps in Bonney Lake.
The company website now describes three distinct brews: an amber with a “toasted caramel character,” a brown that provides “a rich nutty flavor and a smooth malty finish” and a porter that gives “a hint of mocha.”
Address: 2551 Cole St., Suite R
Hours: 2 to 7 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
