LYNNWOOD BREWING CONCERN
Lynnwood Brewing Concern is both a brewery and a taproom, and as our fans can tell you, we think having the hops, brewing barrels, and the taps all in one place is something special, like the circle of life—but with beer.
Because for us, beer is life. Dedication and meticulous-crafting are ranked among the flavor profiles. Patience, love, and Know-How. We wouldn’t serve a beer to you, if we wouldn’t drink it ourselves. Because we’re serving it to our community and our friends. So, slide up to the counter, watch the brewers at work, swing by Wilson’s Eatery for some delicious food, and savor life with us.
