Apart from the lauded Camano Island Inn, there’s not exactly a robust food and drink scene on Camano Island. Naked City Brewing plans to do its part to change that.
The Greenwood-based business has announced plans to open a second brewpub this spring at Terry’s Corner on the north end of Camano, to be called Ko-lut-chen Beer Garden at Naked City Camano Island. The pub will carry a dozen beers on draft, local ciders and wines, craft soda, a dedicated gluten-free beer tap for SoDo’s Ghostfish Brewing, plus a “gourmet comfort food” menu similar to the original location’s.
“We love Camano Island already, and couldn’t be more excited to join the great community there,” said Don Webb, Naked City’s head brewer and co-founder. Webb said he’s planning a new beer called Easy Island Pale Ale to commemorate the opening.
Brewpub executive chef Tessa Roberts is planning a rotating food menu featuring seasonal plates focusing on fresh vegetables from island farmers. Expect some overlap with the Greenwood pub, including the beet burger, Naked Burger, and hand-cut fries. The menu will also include vegetarian and gluten-free options.
Naked City Camano Island plans to feature a library, rotating art gallery, and classic movies playing on bar televisions — the latter feature is currently a focus of the Greenwood spot, as well.
The new location, which doesn’t have a specific opening date yet, will sit next to the grass outdoor amphitheater at Terry’s Corner, so come summer, there will be events like movies and concerts to pair with a beer.
“The American public house has a long tradition of fostering community,” said general manager and co-owner Bryan Miller. “And Naked City looks forward to supporting all the wonderful activities and events already happening in Camano and Stanwood.”
