North Sound Beers

North Sound Brewing Co. makes craft beer. Good craft beer. Not only does it taste good and make your meal better but we like to think that since its founding in 2010, North Sound Brewing Co. has brewed flavorful beers that enrich the life, tradition and culture of the community it serves.

Our ales are inspired from some of the old traditional ales from the UK and Ireland-but we do them in our own NW style. Our batches are small meaning we take the time to get it right. Our beers are unfiltered meaning our beers have more flavor. We do make serious beer here but we try not to take it TOO seriously-meaning we have fun brewing it ….and drinking it!   Join us in the taproom and beer garden or enjoy our beer at a pub near you. Cheers!

101 Imperial IPA (limited availability)

Why do we call it the “101”? Three reasons: it’s 10.1% abv, it’s 101 IBU’s and the dry-hopping we did to it cost us $101. This deceptively smooth Imperial IPA hits your nose with grapefruit and apple and layers the tongue with a hop profile that will put a smile on your ever-hop-lovin’ face.

10.1% ABV

Baffing Spoon Scottish Ale (Winter Seasonal)

Named after an old Scottish golf club, this ale is mild and malty with a full bodied smoothness. This ale will put a tune in your bagpipes and a swing in your kilt.

7.2% ABV

Barb’s beer

A crisp and refreshing Golden Ale. Lightly bittered with a malty sweetness. A beer we think is just right !-and it also raises money for lung cancer research. See barbsbeer.org for more information.

5.0%  ABV

Big Bend Blonde Ale

A simple, refreshing light bodied ale with a slightly hoppy finish.

5.3% ABV

Big R Imperial Red (Winter Seasonal)

Lots of malt and lots of hops means there’s lots going on in this ale!! The initial full bodied malt start to this beer gives way to a lingering spicy bitter finish. You might want to use both hands when steering this one! This is one to chew on!!!! Cheers!

9% ABV

Bitter Rain

Seven different kinds of grains give this beer a very interesting malt profile. A balanced dose of Centennial and Goldings hops. Think Northwest style English Ale!

5.9% ABV

Creepy Monkey Barrel-Aged Double Brown

Think our Goosetown Brown is good? Try this double version of it on for size. Weighing in at 12% ABV, we crammed twice as much malt and hops into half as much water for a deeply rich, high-test brown bombshell. Then we age it in Bourbon barrels and add vanilla beans.

12% ABV

Goosetown Brown

Slightly sweet, smoky and full-bodied. Chocolate, roasted and dark Munich malts give this beer a nice mahogany color and rich flavor. This big brown ale will warm you up!

7% ABV

Here’s Your Damn Amber

We got tired of people asking us to make an Amber also…So Here’s……..:-)  It’s a malt forward slightly sweet medium bodied ale.

 5.6%  ABV

Hop Chops IPA

A big hoppy Northwest style IPA featuring Simcoe, Amarillo and Falconer’s Flight hops. Think ruby red grapefruit with a long pleasing bitter finish.

6.8% ABV

Hop Saw IPA

Our Hop Saw IPA is balanced with subtle caramel malts and a zing of some fun and traditional hops like Warrior and Cascade. It will wake your mouth up…after it fills your nose with a Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial and Chinook dry-hop.

7.5% ABV

Hopsolute IPA

Based on our popular first Fresh Hop IPA, this is our year round addition and now our best seller. We hop-burst this IPA with Simcoe, Amarillo and Citra hops for great flavor and balanced bitterness on the finish. It’s also dry-hopped giving it a wonderful hoppy aroma.

6.6% ABV

Lunch Pail Ale

A lovely session-able medium bodied ale. Meridian, Saaz and Galaxy hops are predominant on the back end of the boil giving a pleasing hop aroma and flavor. Goes Great with “lunch”!

ABV 5.5%

Mystery Wheat Ale

Clean and refreshing, this simple American wheat ale has a slight sweet presence from a randomly-picked organic fruit juice. Different every time! Can you guess the mystery fruit in this batch?

4.5% ABV

Pearl’s Pale Ale

Named after Kurt and Lori’s beloved Shar-Pei Pearl, it’s our seasonal Tulip Festival Pale Ale.  We tweak the hop profile every year, keeping it spring fresh.

5.7% ABV

Slainte Stout

Slainte (pronounced Shlon-cha) is the Irish word for cheers!  This creamy, smooth, dark beauty has ample amounts of caramel, roasted and chocolate malts giving it its complex flavorful body. Can you taste Toffee?

6.6% ABV

Sucellus Imperial Porter

Named for the Celtic god of agriculture and alcoholic drinks, he is often seen carrying a hammer and a beer keg on a long pole.  We crammed a whole lot of oatmeal and chocolate malts into this ale.  Our imperial porter richly coats the tongue with smooth, dark chocolate and the kind of velvety goodness that’ll make you think the whole world loves you – even your mother-in-law. Our bourbon barrel-aged version of this beer will have you loving her back.

9.5% ABV

Tangarillo Wheat

A single hop wheat ale infused with Tangarine juice. Light and refreshing.
4.5% ABV

X-Batch Beers

We use this label to brew unique, one-run beers.
