I’m going to let you in on a little secret. It’s one that local craft bottle-seekers should know about, but many don’t. While I love our wonderful, local craft bottle shops like The Beer Junction, Bottleworks, 99 Bottles, etc., they aren’t the only place you can go to find great craft beer in bottles around the Sound. One of the places most people never think about when it comes to shopping for beer is their local drug store. We associate them with prescriptions and over-the-counter medications, first aid supplies, candy, toiletries and the like. Well, Bartell Drugs wants to change that.
With a long-time commitment to carrying local products, your local Bartell already carries more local craft beer than you’d suspect, including brands like Fremont Brewing, Schooner Exact Brewing, Georgetown Brewing and more. A few Bartell’s locations, including their South Lake Union location, even have been on tap. Now, Bartell’s has teamed up with Two Beers Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) to bring you Bartell Drugs’ Tangerine IPA.
