1425 Railroad Ave., Bellingham (map)
March Green Drinks is hosted by the Local Annex, the sister brewpub of the Local Public House on Railroad Avenue.
The Local Public House's extensive tap list boasts 26 beers sourced from the Cascade Region, from never-before-seen nanobreweries to Pacific Northwest favorites. With the recent addition of a new head chef, their menu is also going local, featuring wild-caught Alaskan salmon from the F/V Nerka. The best part? The Local Public House and the Local Annex offer their full beer and food menu in both spaces.
Home to a casual, laid-back vibe, the Local Annex features pool tables, shuffleboard, darts, and an arcade. Their back room is home to Washington's first nonprofit brewery, the Bellingham Beer Lab (BBL).
BBL is a cooperative brewery that aims to provide a space for homebrewers to perfect their craft and build a following before starting their own brewery, all while donating sales to charity.
The Local Public House is the original tasting room for Menace Brewing, which recently relocated from Ferndale to the Fountain District in Bellingham.
Join us March 1st to scope out the Local Annex and hear from Menace Brewing head brewer Ben Buccarelli, who will give attendees a sneak peek at the Bellingham Beer Lab's first collaboration beer.
