There’s a new craft brewery on the block in Woodinville. Bosk Brew Works, a German-influenced, Northwest-inspired operation that largely makes lighter, German-style beers, celebrated its grand opening late last month.
“We have really focused on the easy-drinking, crisp, refreshing lagers and traditional styles,” said Stephanie Price, the taproom manager.
Bosk currently has five beers on tap, and the head brewer, Will Lefevre, is working on five more: a kolsch, an oktoberfest, a saison, and two IPAs. (Despite their commitment to “easy-drinking” brews, Price said she and the rest of the team understand that many Northwesterners love their hops.)
The brewery’s owner, Cliff Hall, is a recently-retired Boeing engineer. “He’s been visiting Munich with his wife for the past ten years,” Price said. “He kind of fell in love with the concept of a nice group setting where people can have good conversation over good beer.”
Bosk’s Woodinville space is 7,800 square feet and houses a 30-barrel brewing system, the largest on the Eastside according to Price. It’s also family-friendly, dog-friendly, and features outdoor areas.
And if you’re wondering where the brewery’s name comes from, Price said the word “bosk” means “small wooded area” in German. It’s a fitting moniker for a young beer company in the heart of the Pacific Northwest.
