With more than a dozen years of beer-crafting experience to his name, brewmaster Rande Reed infuses Snoqualmie Brewery and Taproom's eight year-round and four rotating seasonal beers with flavors that combine timeless recipes and contemporary innovations. When they're not making batches of their core concoctions, Rande and his brewing team fills the taproom's Belgian-style Brewer's Choice tap with one-time-only creations. Those craft beers—along with an original root beer—wash down bites from the delectable menu served in the 180-seat taproom restaurant. Chefs whip up pub classics such as barbecue-chicken fingers, roast-beef sandwiches laced with chipotle mayo, and German-style bratwursts simmered in the brewery's amber ale. Snoqualmie Brewery and Taproom further entices patrons with weekly entertainment including live music, open-mic nights, and a game night with favorites such as cribbage, Clue, and chess played with actual knights.
Diners sink into tufted dining chairs, preparing for a sumptuous meal as the restaurant's rich, Old World–inspired decor gives them their first hint of the eatery’s dedication to tradition. In the kitchen, gifted chefs summon fresh Italian ingredients that inspire a classic dinner menu, stacking plates with lasagna, stuffed ravioli, and simmering veal marsala. Brunello also boasts a sommelier who can deftly hand-select wines from across Italy to pair with dinner or to pour into a bathtub thus replicating the wine-filled canals of Venice.
With a wealth of experience running dining establishments and hosting fine-dining radio shows in the Seattle area, celebrated chef Sean Langan's Fall City Bistro provides a unique dining experienced for even the most fine-tuned taste buds. Less than half an hour from downtown Seattle and roughly 10 minutes from Snoqualmie Falls, the cozy spot celebrates the yield of local farmers as well as international flavors ranging from the French countryside to Asian kitchens. This is evident throughout Langan's appetizers and entrees, which are changed weekly and every 3–4 months to feature original recipes with the most seasonal organic ingredients. In addition to familiar dishes, guests can also experience tastes from more faraway locations, such as panko-fried brussels sprouts with a housemade sweet thai chili dipping sauce, a curry-fried eggplant served over couscous, and white clams served with housemade andouille sausage and a lemon, garlic, and and thyme confit.
When not in the kitchen, Langan is an active participant in the Fare Start program, which provides culinary job training for homeless and disadvantaged individuals.
