Machine House Brewery was the 39th visit on my bucket list of Washington State breweries. I found Machine House using the Untapp app.
Machine House is known for serving traditional hand-pumped English ales that are easy drinking with moderate alcohol and bitterness. Located in an industrial brick warehouse in the historic Georgetown district of Seattle, the tasting room offers a family-friendly, casual atmosphere. The large open space, art-adorned walls and long communal tables make Machine House the perfect place to enjoy some live music or watch the latest sporting events including the English Premier League matches on TV. As with most tasting rooms that they do not serve food, but you may bring in your own or order delivery while you’re there.
I tried all five beers they had on tap, which included the following:
- Gold – Pours a clear copper-orange color with a small white head. Medium-light bodied, aroma is subtle with toasty malt flavors. ABV: 4.5%
- Bitter – Pours a medium-dark reddish-amber color with virtually no head. Medium bodied with herbal hop aromas and flavors with a smooth but bitter hop finish. ABV: 4.2%
- Dark Mild – Pours dark brown in color with a small tan head. Dry chocolate, with medium roasted flavors. Light bodied, complex and smooth yet dark in color. Kinda reminds me of a very mild porter. Interesting beer. ABV: 3.7%
- Oatmeal Stout – Pours very dark brown in color with a tan head. Not the typical body of an oatmeal stout, but with all the typical roasted malt flavors you would expect from this style. The dry finish makes this easy to drink. ABV: 6%
- Winter Ale – Pours a dark brown in color, (similar to the dark mild) with a decent tan head. Sweet caramel flavors and rich toffee aromas. ABV: 6.8%
