An American in Par--in Edmonds, rather

    Got to call on the new American Brewing Co. in Edmonds last weekend; it has been open about six weeks. It was also a chance to check on Gallaghers since they had moved into the same building with American.  Was glad to see Denny Gallagher's WSU stuff and the coaster collection in the loo had all made the move.  The building they share is hard by the railroad tracks and the ferry terminal. As you wend your way to the back of this business park, you see Gallaghers first.  American is around the back on the same level, and has commissioned an artist to create an unmistakable trail in the parking lot.
   Inside, the tasting room had drawn a nice Saturday afternoon crowd. The shiny, brand-new brewing equipment is on display behind tall windows.
  They are making four good beers at the moment: Breakaway Caboose is their oatmeal stout and gets its name from the railroad tracks, literally twenty-five feet from the back door. They make a light (3.2 %) Blonde called American Blonde, of course.  Ed's Red and Breakaway IPA round out the selections. A nice addition to the Snohomish County beer scene.
