Can be a bit crowded on weekends. Bar is a bit small and hard to find a seat when it is crowded.
Nice selection of Redhook beers, including some cask brews. Good food selection with suggested beer pairings on the menu.
The store is a bit expensive, but has some cool Redhook apparel and memorabilia.
The tour is the best! It is only $1 and you get to sample 5 or 6 beers. You also get to keep your sampler glass. It can be crowded but they work hard to get everyone their samples as fast as possible. Tour guides try to make the tour fun and fact-filled. Good trivia questions and if you know the answers, you get extra samples.
The summer movies are fun, but get really crowded! Hard to find parking. I recommend going to the over 21 shows so that you don't have to deal with kids.

My first Ale brewery tour and my first real introduction into what beer really tastes like and should taste like. My wife and I had one our first dates here and every time we go its just brings up great memories. We've since moved out of state but every time we visit Redhook is a must.

On our way back to Seattle from Vancouver, we made a one night detour to attend a wedding at Willows Lodge. We popped into The Forecaster's Pub for a quick beer and a late lunch. The bar area was hopping, as it was a Saturday and a tour was just about to start. After we sat at the bar and ordered, only then did we see the outside seating. Oh well. Beer selection was good, as most of the Redhook staples were there, plus a few gems. I had the Eisen Bach eisbock and my wife had the Belgian Tripel. We split an order of the salmon artichoke bit, which was tasty. When we mentioned to our waitress that we were in a hurry to get to a wedding, she brought us the check quickly, which helped us get going. We took a quick peek in the gift shop on the way out. Twelve bucks for a "Limited" tulip glass? Too rich for my blood. But Forecaster's was a nice place for a pint. Something for people to keep in mind if they are cruising around the vineyards nearby.

The Brewery was my first stop when I was staying at the Willows Lodge for a company meeting. Its not a bad place to have a pint a far as brewery bars go. The restaurant area was fairly large and had an open industrial feel to it with plenty of seating. We ended up grabbing a spot in the bar area tucked in the back corner. We ordered some nachos and a few pints. The two beers (Nut Brown and Winterhook) I had were decent offerings and the nachos were standard fare, both hit the spot after a long day of flying. I have no complaints about the service but we did stop by pretty early in the afternoon on a Wednesday. Its definitely worth a visit when you are in the area.

Redhook Forecast: More Cask in my Future
This is a moderately big place with lots of tables and a good sized bar. In one section there is a small fireplace with leather couches and chairs that provides a little warmth in an otherwise antiseptic looking environment. Decent classic rock (Doors, Dead, Floyd, etc.) is piped in and a lively young local crowd gathers at the bar. The tables attract a mix of folks including at least one large work crowd of about a dozen.
Menu entrees include butternut squash ravioli, grilled pork chop, Alaskan halibut, a flat iron steak and homemade meatloaf. In addition there are salads, sandwiches, soup, a Kid's menu and dessert. I ordered the Alaskan halibut which came with red potatoes and veggies. The food was good but it was hardly a hungry man's meal. For $15.95 I was expecting little more (e g., bread, a house salad). Before I left, I wound up ordering a bowl of chili, feeling the need to fill the empty space left by my entree.
The bartender was attentive and professional and the food came out surprisingly quick. I ordered a beer sampler and each beer was highly filtered and brilliantly clear. Only the IPA, blackhook and ESB arrived with even traces of a head, and none of the beers had much of an aroma..
Winterhook - nice dry hop finish, not bad.
Blond - pale malt finish, thin mouthfeel, drinkability is only slightly better than avg.
ESB - nice toasted malt finish
IPA - floral hop aroma, lingering bitter finish
Blackhook porter - roasted malt and hints of chocolate balanced by an aggressive hoppiness.
They also had the ESB and Porter on cask. I tried the porter and it was much better than the tap version. Overall, Forecaster's Public House is a good brewpub; I just wouldn't drive far out of my way to go back.

Place was crammed with people and the food looked great. If a friend of mine wasn't grilling salmon at the time I probably would have considered eating there but instead did just a flight. Beers were good to very good as expected. The place had a nice festive/ sports bar vibe to it despite it being so large. Think of those big chain BBQ joints... that sort of feel. It is in a remote area so it is likely I will not get there again with so many other alternatives in the area. Still worth checking out though.

No other brewery in Washington comes close to rivaling the scope of Redhook's 260,000-bbl annual production. Their Woodinville operation boasts the state's largest brew kettle (100-bbl - so large, it has a mechanical winch to lower the poor soul who must enter and clean it) and their fermentation room would appear to cover several acres. It's like a tank battalion.
Redhook's Woodinville digs adjoin two wineries beside the Sammamish River and resembles a manicured estate moreso than an industrial plant. Daily tours allow visitors to explore the facility, collect a complimentary sampling glass, and dip into Redhook's catalog of ales. The one dollar cost is more of a tip than an admission fee, but be sure to tip your tour guide afterwards as well.
Adjoining the brewery is The Forecaster's Pub. The pub features a spacious seating area (often crowded), outdoors dining, and free live music on weekends. Food is routine barfare but generous and tasty. Just be sure to save some room for the Porter Ice Cream Sundae. The bar serves four regular Redhook ales, three seasonals, a cask, and several specials, including newer beers not yet available in bottles. The gift shop is easily the most accommodating of its kind in the state, offering Redhook playing cards, sweat bands, golf towels, and BBQ aprons among the more routine staples of T-shirts and drinking glasses. Bottled beer is available to go, often at discount prices.
Redhook beers range from clean, approachable standards to minimalist introductory beers suited to mass-market sensibilities. They are distributed to every American state except Utah and Oklahoma. When offered at supermarket prices, best values may be had in the form of the sharp, workable Long Hammer IPA or the agreeably modest Copperhook Spring Ale.

Overall a good place to hang out but nothing overly awesome. Occassionally, they will allow experimental beers to be tasted by the public. On one visit, I was treated to what they were calling "Copper". It was an absolutely awesome brew, but I have not heard it about it since. The seating area consists of several tables and some seating near the fireplace. While there is a formal bar, it is not the recommended place to sit when visiting. Prefer one of the tables or the outdoor seating on a nice day. Food is standard pub fare done well enough, but not extraordinary. Attached to the bar is a souvenir shop where they sell their beers in bottles in addition to pint glasses, t-shirts, etc.

In '09, I visited a friend in Seattle and went to about a dozen breweries between the Seattle area and Birmingham. (The goal was to make it to Vancouver, but I ended up getting too drunk and had to be dragged back home.) The following day, I stumbled into this brewpub. This place was out in the middle of nowhere, and the layout was impressive. I only tried two of the brews unfortunately, but they were tasty, and the food made this stop a pleasant experience. Atmosphere was...meh...kinda restaurantish and not too intimate, but still ok. Service was decent.

Visited the Redhook brewery after a day of snowshoeing and a stop at two of the wineries nearby. The brewpub has kind of a generic feel to it like many of the chain brewpubs out there. We sat at the bar and service was competent yet kind of cold. Bostonjord and I both had the Double Black Coffee Stout which was quite enjoyable on draught. We shared a plate of nachos which were tasty yet nothing special. I had a second beer the double bock which I found to be too sweet. If you are in the area it is worth a stop but I would not go out of my way to visit. It would be worth the trip if you are into wine since there are at least 5 wineries right by the brewery.
