A quick plug for our friends down at Lucky Envelope Brewing (907 NW 50th Street), whose owners are Phinney residents and have always been generous contributors to the community. Also, we personally can’t wait for a Yuzu Sour! They have a large outdoor seating area and spacious, distanced tables within for safe pandemic consumption.
Lucky Envelope’s brewing philosophy is centered around “Culturally Inspired Beer” whose recipes draw from modern and historic brewing styles and techniques. In addition, Lucky Envelope also uses both traditional and non-traditional ingredients in our beers which range from traditional IPAs, to German-style lagers, to seasonal favorites like a Two Pepper (Habanero & Shishito) Pale Ale and Peanut Butter Cream Stout.
