During Washington’s phase two reopening during the COVID-19 pandemic, breweries and bars can have limited seating, while also selling beer in growlers, cans, and kegs for takeout and delivery. But even those that have opened expansive patios for outdoor dine-in service are still keeping to-go options available, and even delivery in some cases. For those who enjoy hoppy IPAs, rich stouts, farmhouse ales, and more, here’s what’s out there right now. Since services shift often now, it’s best to call ahead to check about hours — and if you see any changes, or if there’s a place you’d like to see on the list, send us a tip.
