No Boat Brewing now open in Snoqualmie, Washington

No Boat Brewing Company is now open in Snoqualmie, Washington. They just opened yesterday (Thursday, October 27). Actually, it’s in the area commonly referred to as Snoqualmie Ridge, just a couple minutes off Interstate 90.

We’ll add to our report once we’ve had a chance to visit, enjoy that new brewery smell, and learn some more. For now, just know that they’re pouring. (Photos above and below shamelessly lifted from the No Boat Brewing Facebook page.)


From the company website: “Situated at the top of scenic Snoqualmie Ridge and a stone’s throw from the beautiful Snoqualmie Falls, No Boat provides a brewery and tasting room that feels simultaneously an escape into nature and a call back to the roots of the Pacific Northwest. Boasting a spacious and airy interior and patio, there’s simply no match for a hand-crafted brew and gorgeous view.”

Taproom hours:

  • Wed 3pm-10pm
  • Thur 3pm-10pm
  • Fri 12pm-10pm
  • Sat 12pm-10pm
  • Sun 12pm-9pm

“Years ago it all began with a simple idea: what if a space existed that dedicated itself to the crossroads between beer and banter, style and service. Between customer and craft. Taking their skill and background in fermentation, brewing, and service, the owners of No Boat Brewing Company then sought to invent a space where the willing could not only wander in for a delicious beer, but a beautiful time with friends, family, and familiar alike.”

“Calling the Pacific Northwest home, and coming from an area where recreation is not a pastime but a lifestyle, they realized only one thing was missing. They didn’t own a boat. ”

“Taking the whimsical path through life while providing a party all along the way, they knew what they had to name their space. It’s a call to the place they call home, to water and mountain, ocean and sky. But most of all, No Boat Brewing Company is an homage to really good beer.”

  1. Wow, unfortunately this brewer is absolutely cluesless about beer. Can’t believe you can screw up and IPA with Amarillo and Mosacic hops but his is especially poor. Looks like an amber and tastes like the bittering hop for a finish. Too bad, I and some others live on the Ridge and gave this place a double thumbs down.

    1. Just stopped by this place this weekend. Interesting approach as there are some non standard concepts going on for sure. If anyone took time to talk to the brewer they would know they are going outside the box on the beers as they develop and brew. I found it refreshing…look for some different approaches, etc. from the product line. For those who are not getting out to some of the breweries out there that are starting to evolve the beer scene start looking. Change is always coming to this craft.

      1. Just moved to Snoqualmie Ridge this past summer from Ft Collins, CO and worked at several breweries while in school there. It is so cool to have this brewery here on the Ridge. Coming from a beer centric town my friends and I know a good vibe and good beer when we see/taste it and this place has it. I did think the Mosaic IPA was too bitter but the other IPA they had was really interesting. I took the time to talk to the brewer who has a Masters Degree out of UC Davis in wine. It is one of the toughest fermentation programs in the world to get into. UC Davis is where Mr. Bamforth teaches (The Pope of Foam!). Lots of UC Davis brewers in the Ft Collins/Boulder area. I saw the above comment about lack of knowledge, not sure its accurate. Also, they just started taking beer runs off the new equipment and fine tuning will be the theme over the next few months. We all loved it and the tasting room is really cool!

  2. I have not been yet, but reading the comments above reminds me that you should never judge a restaurant on how it performs opening night. What you are looking for is promise and then just let things work themselves out. Breweries are much the same. I cannot wait to visit this one.

  3. Thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. The area was spacious but had been thought out well, Speaking with the owner and staff, everyone was pleasant and engaging, and the variety of seating options made it seem reasonable to come with a large group or just another friend. The Mosaic IPA was my favorite, but I enjoyed the Amber as well. For an opening week experience, I was quite impressed, and look forward to seeing the continued development.
