Next stop in Seattle is Schooner Exact Brewing Company, (I didn't get an explanation of the name...,) for some beer and another tour. This brewery is located in a warehouse right next to a Vespa dealer, and entry is right through the open garage door. Within is a small bar with a few extra tables and a bunch of oak barrels filled with aging beer. As a cool addition to the tour, Mitch Steele, brewer of Arrogant Bastard, and another Stone employee were already sitting at the bar and sharing homebrew and Schooner beers. The beers were all very good, but the one we all kept going back to was the whiskey barrel aged imperial porter...nummy!
I was amazed to see one of the brewers hand bottling in the background while we toured. Just like we do at home! Our stay here was not long enough!
