Up through Snoqualmie Pass and heading down the east side, one come on the well-preserved old mining town of Roslyn. The brewery here sits in a nice little wood building that blends in with the block.
The original Roslyn brewery was in a substantial-looking brick building, according to some old photos. It closed in 1915 as the mines played out and the population dwindled. The recipe for today's dark lager was found in the records of this predecessor. Old photos of life in the town during its boom years adorn the walls. No food made here but pretzels are set out. A pleasant stop in a friendly place.
