When you’re really longing for a Boundary Bay Brewery beer, but find yourself closer to Seattle than to Bellingham, head over to Renton for a stop at the Whistle Stop! Old World charm can be found in downtown Renton, Washington at the Whistle Stop Ale House. For over one hundred years people have come to the Ale House neighborhood next to the railroad tracks to enjoy a pint among friends. Inside you’ll find rustic charm, a cheery wood bar which traveled to the Alaskan Gold Rush before finding a home at the Ale House, seventeen rotating taps and foods that soothe the soul.
The Whistle Stop has seventeen rotating taps that feature the finest ales and lagers of the Pacific Northwest and the World. Freshly grilled deli sandwiches are the menu specialty along with soups, salads and appetizers. You can head on down to the Whistle Stop first thing in the morning for a breakfast sure to start your day off right. Omelets, Eggs Benedict, French Toast, Heuvos Rancheros and more! You can fill up on cold sandwiches, salads, burgers, and wraps at lunchtime. And after 4pm you can score appetizers like Lemon Garlic Calamari, nachos, a Mediterranean platter or hot wings. And for dinner, treat yourself to baked salmon, Chicken Gorgonzola Pasta, New York Steak and so much more! Check out the full menu online! And if all these incredible eats aren’t enough, the Whistle Stop also has awesome deals every week: on Monday’s kids under 12 eat free and on Tuesday’s you can score a 1/2 priced bottle of wine. Not to mention the Wine, Beer and Liquor tastings they hold once a month! Swing by for a quick lunch or spend an afternoon, either way the service is always friendly and the beer is always fresh.
Here’s what the Whistle Stop says about why they do what they do:
“We believe in people making connections with one another and their community. One of our connections to our community is through sponsoring a fund raising event every year to benefit Renton Area Youth and Family Services. This organization directly effects kids and families in our community by providing food, clothing, shelter and most importantly, training and education, so they can attain the goal of self sustenance. We also focus our beer selection on smaller Northwest Breweries thereby supporting our local economy. Whenever possible we hire locally and focus our service on making real connections with our guests. We order our food locally as well, providing quality meats from Misty Isle Farms of Vashon Island, and dairy products from Smith Brothers Farms. Our wine selection is varied and often-times unrecognizable to the average person. While we love to serve up Washington as often as prices will allow, we like to offer something a little different from elsewhere as well. We love cultivating new ideas and new events. We’ll take you outside of Renton and learn about wine from near and far at our monthly Wine Dinners. We’ll bring in crazy (and not so crazy) Brewer’s from around the state to talk about the industry and their shops and give away cool beer-ware. Soon we’ll start taking you around the world with tasty liquors and foods to match.”
Cheers to the Whistle Stop from all of us here at Boundary Bay Brewery. We love this place for having such a cool Ale House and for doing such a great job of continuing to support Washington breweries. Go see for yourselves!!
