I’ve always been a big fan of Naked City Brewery & Taphouse. They make some of my favorite locally-brewed beers including their The Big Lebrewski Imperial Stout and Cry Me A River Triple IPA. Unfortunately, I don’t get there as often as I’d like but every time I’m in the Greenwood area, I’ll stop by. One taste of their beers is all it takes to let you know Owner and Brewmaster Don Webb really loves his work.
Now, after going strong for over 8 years (they celebrated their 8th Anniversary last October), Naked City is ready to expand. So, coming as soon as this Spring, Naked City is pleased to announced they will be opening their 2nd location out on Camano Island.
Here is some more information from Naked City Brewery & Taphouse:
Camano Island, WA – Naked City Brewing is thrilled to announce the launch of its second location, a new brewpub at Terry’s Corner on the north end of Camano Island opening in Spring of 2017.
Naked City Camano Island features the award-winning beers that established Naked City Brewery & Taphouse in Seattle as a world-class brewpub, along with gourmet comfort food and the best art and culture in the Northwest. The film noir-themed watering hole offers 12 rotating house-brewed beers, plus local ciders and wines, craft soda, a dedicated Ghostfish gluten-free beer tap, and a scratch kitchen sourcing from Camano Island farms and local vendors.
“We love Camano Island already, and couldn’t be more excited to join the great community there,” said Don Webb, Naked City’s head brewer and co-founder. Webb is concocting a new brew called Easy Island Pale Ale in honor of the grand opening, which, along with Naked City’s other beers, will be available in crowlers to go as well as on draft.
Executive Chef Tessa Roberts designed a rotating seasonal food menu for Camano Island, featuring fresh vegetables grown for the brewpub by Camano Island farmers. Naked City’s beloved favorites, including the award-winning beet burger, Naked Burger, and hand-cut fries, headline a menu that includes vegetarian and gluten-free fare.
The Ko-lut-chen Beer Garden at Naked City Camano Island is adjacent to the grass outdoor amphitheater anchoring Terry’s Corner. In summer, the pub will feature film, theater, music, and art events, and in the winter, a holiday tree with lights and a visit from Brew Santa. The brewpub boasts a library and rotating art gallery, with classic movies playing on the bar TVs.
“The American public house has a long tradition of fostering community, and Naked City looks forward to supporting all the wonderful activities and events already happening in Camano and Stanwood,” said general manager Bryan Miller, who co-owns Naked City along with Webb.
Naked City Brewery & Taphouse in Seattle was named one of the Top 100 Beer Bars in America by DRAFT magazine three years in a row. The flagship brewpub celebrated eight years of award-winning food, beer, and culture in October of 2016.

I don’t think I’ve ever been to Camano Island myself but, come Spring, Naked City has given me the perfect excuse to head up for a visit. I’m looking forward to checking out the new location when it’s ready to go. I’m sure Don would love it if you came up for a visit as well.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
