Now that another year of Bellingham Beer Week is behind us all, let's get back to discussing what really matters - the beer.
Located in the Fairhaven neighborhood, just minutes from downtown Bellingham is Stones Throw Brewing. Founded by two former Western Washington University graduates, Jack Pflueger and Tony Luciano. Founded on the idea of being the "The Closest Pint to Adventure", Stones Throw Brewing opened in 2016 with the idea of promoting neighborhood-brewed beers, enjoyed with friends families or complete strangers.
We do our best to embody our motto The Closest Pint to Adventure! While beer is our passion, so is exploring the the surrounding mountains, islands, and everything in between. Henceforth, we have sought to create an environment that will be loved by like-minded people. We're a small team here, but we hope that means you can walk right in and feel apart of our family. Take a seat at the bar before a sunset sail on the bay, relax in our beer garden after a long bike ride in Galbraith, or cozy up by the fire-pit after a day of hard skiing. Our tap room is a dog and kid friendly environment where customers can consult maps, books, and itineraries necessary to take advantage of outdoor adventures, all within a stone's throw. Just remember, if it snows a foot or so up at the mountain overnight, odds are we're thinking about calling in *cough cough* sick, too...
Feeling a bit left out, the brewery reached out to remind us that, yes, they brewer more than India Pale Ales and Porters. In fact here are a couple more beers in case you're looking for the perfect excuse to visit the only brewery in Fairhaven.
Dark Side of Bellingham Dark Lager - Released during Bellingham Beer Week
4.2% ABV, 28 IBU
Saaz & Mt Hood Hops | Copeland Pale, Chocolate, Black Malt & Pilot Pilsner
Crisp and bready like a premium pilsner lager but with a powdery baking chocolate backdrop supported by a firm bitterness, this Schwarzbier-style dark lager is here to celebrate Bellingham Beer Week! Black in color but light in body, the Dark Side of Bellingham has a mild chocolate flavor to give a little sweetness to our sessionable Beer Week brew!
Bellingham Homebrew Guild Red IPA - Released during Bellingham Beer Week
5.7% ABV, 50 IBU
ElDorado and Citra hops | Pale, Dark Pale, Wheat, Red X, Honey malt
Bitter and hoppy with a strong malt backbone, this Red IPA is a special Bellingham Beer Week collaboration with the Bellingham Homebrewers Guild!

Raise one with us and celebrate the strong homebrew tradition and culture in Bellingham.
