An hour and a half north of Seattle sits Anacortes, Washington (map), gateway to the San Juan Islands. Founded over a century ago, this maritime town on Fidalgo Bay has its small town feel well in tact. Tourists strolling Downtown Anacortes in the busy summer months passing art galleries and European bakeries on their way to the San Juan Islands. The short, sleepy winter days are mostly for the locals. Frequenting one of the local watering holes is quite the norm for some and who can blame them with a bar and restaurant like the Rockfish Grill featuring beer from the Anacortes Brewery next door.
Happy Hour Appetizers $3.99 and $1.00 Off Beer and Wine
For the budget minded, happy hour at the Rockfish Grill can’t be beat. All food on the happy hour menu is $3.99 per item and $1.00 off all beer and wine.
The happy hour menu includes wood fired mini-pizzas (pesto or marinara sauce) and choice of two toppings (I recommend the pesto sauce with pepperoni and artichoke hearts). Appetizers include perfectly deep fried fish and chips, chicken quesadilla, crispy nachos, fish tacos and more. View the Rockfish Grill Happy Hour Menu.
Top off your delectable treats with a beer or hard cider from the Anacortes Brewery menu. Choose from Pilsner, Amber, Hefewezein or one of the 25 other beers such as the seasonal specialty Noel Winter Ale. The Old Sebastes Barley Wine ale is sure to warm you up with an alcohol content of 9.9%. And how can you not try a beer with intriguing names like Locomotive Breath Imperial Stout and Golden Lizard Belgian Wit?
Happy Hour at the Rockfish Grill runs everyday from 3pm – 6pm and is served only in the bar. Either belly up to it or grab a stool at one of the three tables and get ready for some tasty food and beer.
Anacortes Beer can be found in bars and restaurants throughout Skagit Valley, in Seattle, as far south as Renton and as far north as Bellingham. Find other restaurants where you can enjoy Anacortes beer.
