Big E Ales, the toast of Lynnwood

   Stopped by Ellersick Brewery, doing business as Big E Ales in a little strip mall on 208th St. SW in Lynnwood, on a sunny July afternoon.  Owner Rick Ellersick began selling his ales out of his garage in 1999 and expanded to the present location in 2006. I read that his father and his sons all put in some work in the operation, a real three-generation enterprise. Ten taps were working that day, up to an Imperial IPA hitting the ABV scale at 10.3%  I tried a nicely balanced amber. 
   They show a movie once a week and have a comfortable beer garden outside.  It is noteworthy that they fill growlers for $7.50.
