Check their website for the resident food truck if you want to eat. Beer is awesome but service is surly. Okay for us, but I can imagine its not for everyone. The space is huge with tons of seating.

What a warm welcoming place. You sit down look around and you see laughter and smiles everywhere. People of all walks of life and their dogs create such a great vibe. They have no food here so I'm not sure what other reviewers are complaining about. They do have a rotating food truck you can order from. Now on to... More

Another place in my backyard that I had no idea existed. the setup is amazing. Lots of open seating. Didn't try any food, but the beer and service were excellent. We will definitely be back.

We mentioned that we loved craft beer whilst visiting family in Marysville and they said "got to take you to Skookum". We came, we saw, we drank. Undoubtedly some of the best beer I have ever tried. The staff were friendly and very helpful in assisting us with our choices in beer. We did not get anything to eat but... More

Skookum has one of the only dark beers I actually like, the Brown & Hairy! Great place to grab a beer and some grub. Food is tasty and service is good. My only complaint is that it seems understaffed at times.

AVOID THIS PLACE LIKE THE PLAGUE! Saturday 2:30 PM, place is 1/3 full. We sit at a table and wait for the staff to take our order. Nothing. We go to the bar and ask about food and they take our cider order. AFTER WE PAY, the big man with a beard and BOOMING VOICE says "FOOD TAKES AN HOUR."... More

Very good beer. Good prices, friendly staff. The place has grown a lot in the last year so it's pretty consistently busy. Just wish they stayed open later than 8 or 9 on a Fri n Sat night.

This brew pub is apparently transforming into a beer joint. Our server explained "we are not a restaurant" and the menu was going away with just small bites to be served. Too bad as our lunch was great and paired well with the brew.

Busy with the after work crowd and able to seat LOTS of folks. Love drinking local and this is a good spot. Always several brews that I like and good grub. VERY dog-friendly and it's fun to watch the crew working.

Kitchen options, not so much, especially if you are used to more urban pub options. But, a step in the right direction-especially for our area-and hopefully the kitchen will continue developing as the customer base does. Beer is great-take or buy a growler when you go. There are a few bottled options for takehome too. Murder of Crows is awesome... More
