Greenwood’s Naked City Brewing is opening its Camano Island expansion on Saturday, April 22. The opening marks the arrival of Camano’s only brewery.
Head brewer Don Webb plans to tap the first in his Easy Island beer series, a blonde ale that promises to be “perfect for sipping in the Camano Island sun.” The brewpub will also open its patio in time for Mother’s Day weekend.
Brewpub executive chef Tessa Roberts has developed a menu that highlights island-grown ingredients: the Naked burger and beet burger, short rib and fried green tomato sandwiches, and a brewer’s salad. Camano Island’s Del Fox Meats and Island Harvest Farms are currently providing some of the ingredients. In addition to on site-brewed Naked City beers, the pub also pours local wines, ciders, and craft sodas.
The brewpub sports an island-themed mural from Ryan Henry Ward, whose quirky, animal-centric art you’ve likely noticed around Seattle, including at Naked City’s Greenwood location. There are also a pair of exhibits from Camano Island artist Christopher Tuohy, including a permanent installation of brewery photography and a rotating gallery of nature photos. Film noir-themed posters help the place feel similar to the brewery’s mainland sibling.
