Bellingham’s natural beauty and collaborative community are what inspire brewmasters to create award-winning beer.
With 15 breweries, Bellingham and Whatcom County are quickly becoming a beer region and looked at as a beer-connoisseur destination. In fact, according to a Tap Trail report, we have more breweries per capita than Seattle or Portland.
Are you looking for a fun getaway? Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, a long-weekend, a birthday, a bachelor or bachelorette party, you should consider heading to Bellingham for a beercation.
We had the chance to sit down with owners of several Bellingham breweries to talk about why they love this place and how they collaborate as a beer community.
