Scuttlebutt is a nice mid-sized micro on the Everett waterfront (best approached from the north side of town, along Marine View Drive). They bottle about half a dozen year round brews in both 22- and 12-oz sizes, the best sellers being Homeport Blonde and their amber ale. (The Gale Force IPA, very hoppy, seems to sell better up here in Bellingham.) Homeport is a well-chosen name, as Everett is just that for a number of Navy ships. The Navy is a bit to the south and Scuttlebutt's nearest neighbor is a marina full of yachts and other boats. The brewpub walls display a combination of yachting pennants and plaques and pictures of Navy ships whose crews have evidently enjoyed shore leaves here.website).
They bill the restaurant section as family-friendly and that seemed to be the case on a sunny Saturday as a couple of families had their toddlers in, sipping the root beer also made here. Most of the tables are indoors, although they have several outside in front--for railroad buffs, perhaps.
UPDATE: new location--more space, less charm.
I'm a contrarian, I guess, I miss the old building, recycled from a seafood plant, with Navy pix and plaques all over the walls (there are a few up in the new building) and the periodic crash of freight train couplings. The new spot is a couple of blocks from the tracks.
