American Brewing Company recently opened its doors to the Edmonds community, and University of Washington journalism student Allison Barrett developed the following multimedia presentation through an internship project for My Edmonds News.
While American Brewing Company may be new, head brewmeister Skip Madsen has a long history of crafting beers in the Pacific Northwest. His regional brewing experience includes time spent at Pike Brewing Company and Big Time Brewery in Seattle as well as at Boundary Bay Brewing Company in Bellingham and Waterstreet [sic] Brewing and Ale House in Port Townsend.

We enjoyed American Brewing’s Breakaway Caboose Oatmeal Stout just last week at the twice-yearly Brewmasters Dinner at Ray’s Cafe. Ray’s executive chef Peter Birk paired the beer with an excellent starter course of baked Penn Cove Select oysters with horseradish, aged cheddar, and tallgrass rye bread. It was an unexpected match that worked really well.
Very much looking forward to stopping by American Brewing and checking out their Breakaway Room tasting spot.
Check out the link to My Edmonds News for the multimedia presentation, it’s an interesting look into the brewery’s people and operations.
