Melvin Brewing Company out of Alpine and Jackson, Wyoming brews some pretty tasty beers. Since they began distribution in the Seattle area in early 2016, I’ve come to really appreciate several of their offerings. The two of their beers people around here are probably the most familiar with include their wildly popular 2×4 Imperial IPA and, of course, last year’s 3-Way IPA (brewed in conjunction with Fort George Brewing Company and Barley Brown’s).
First launched in 2009, Melvin took off quickly and gained high praise from the brewing industry, including a 2012 Gold Medal at the Great American Beer Festival for their 2×4 Imperial IPA (among other awards). Now, they’ve launched a 3rd location, and their first full-scale brewpub, right here in Washington State. Opened in Bellingham on June 3rd, Melvin’s brewpub offers 20 taps (including one rotating guest tap) and a full menu.
