El­iz­a­beth Sta­tion

Belling­ham, Wash­ing­ton

Craft Beer & Brewing Magazine - - Love Handles -

This bar and bot­tle shop in north­ern Wash­ing­ton State brings to­gether not only the best in the re­gion but from around the coun­try and world. A beer for ev­ery mood, palate, and av­enue of ex­plo­ration makes this a can’t-pass stop.

What it is: Not ev­ery bot­tle shop is a bar and not ev­ery bar is a bot­tle shop. This ex­pan­sive space in a city that is al­ready teem­ing with great brew­eries is both. It’s a chance to drink lo­cal—both in bot­tles and on draft—and to ex­plore the ever-grow­ing beer world. A sta­ple in the city, it’s any­thing but stale. Not rest­ing on past ac­co­lades, El­iz­a­beth Sta­tion is al­ways mov­ing for­ward, not only with beer but with a healthy and di­verse cider se­lec­tion, too.

Why it’s great: Serving a wide se­lec­tion of great beer is only good when you have a staff who can walk even the most as­tute ex­perts through the new of­fer­ings. El­iz­a­beth Sta­tion has those folks be­hind the bar and walk­ing the floor. Walk­ing past the cool­ers or scan­ning the taps, you’ll find your­self mut­ter­ing, “Oh, I’ve al­ways wanted to try that and that and that.” Con­ve­nience store– like junk food is piled high for pur­chase, or if you’re wind­ing down for the night (or up early) and in the mood for some­thing sweet, El­iz­a­beth Sta­tion also has a poury­our-own break­fast-ce­real bar. —John Holl
