Supporting the Local Community
The Store is proud to support local farmers and businesses by selling local organic food, including local wines and beers, ice cream, salsa and chips, as well as other specialty products produced right here in Skagit and Island counties. Offering locally produced products allows us to live up to the commitment of our triple bottom line philosophy of economic, environmental, and community responsibility. By supporting our local community, we help to reduce the environmental impact of product transportation all the while providing our customers with the option of specialty items that are produced within 150 miles of our store. Here are a few highlights of our local products.

Our beer is beer for beer lovers! At Snoqualmie Brewery we are passionate in our quest to make the best beer on the planet. We will never settle for joining the oceans of average beer. Our mission is to produce a wide range of premium year round, seasonal beers and just for fun, we brew Brewer’s Choice beers at Rande’s whim!
From our very first day, when we poured the beers of each of the breweries we had all worked at in the past alongside our own beer, Elysian has honored the efforts of other brewers and brewing cultures. Uniquely among brewpubs, we have even offered rare German and Belgian beers at our own taps.
Lopez Island Vineyards
We at Lopez Island Vineyards have selected grapes that are matched to our growing climate. These come from similar regions of northern Europe. These grapes are only grown here in the northwest corner of North America and would not be suited to hotter regions. We feel they have found perfect growing conditions here on Lopez Island.
