Trap Door recently moved into the space at 1834 Main St. in downtown Washougal that formerly housed Amnesia Brewing and then Logsdon Farmhouse Ales. This new family-friendly taproom and production brewery has a fully stocked bar of wine and spirits as well as a kitchen serving starters like beer cheese fondue ($10), salads ($9-$11) and pizza ($15-$23).
Washougal-based 54-40 Brewing opened the Beer Lodge at 310 state Highway 14 in Stevenson. The new taproom serves crushable favorites like Kascadia Kolsh and 1862 Mexican lager as well as starters ($8), sandwiches ($12), salads ($6-$8) and unusual pizzas like the Kevin Bacon Ranch with housemade ranch topped with chicken, bacon and green onions ($18.99-$28.99).
Heathen Brewing and Backwoods Brewing Co. are opening spots in northern Clark County.
Heathen expanded its production brewery in Salmon Creek (2225 N.E. 119th St., Suite 109) to include a full kitchen serving soup ($5.75-$7.15), salad ($10.75-$16.50), beer snacks like Cajun pickle fries ($13.75) and smoked wings ($12.75), as well as pub favorites like burgers ($13.50-$18.75) and mac and cheese with bacon, red peppers and grilled or crispy chicken ($18.75).
Carson brewery Backwoods plans to open a new taproom in Ridgefield with a pilot brewhouse for development of new recipes and small batch beer, probably sometime next year. This third location (Backwoods also has a spot in Portland’s Pearl District) sits on 1 acre and includes two floors of indoor dining as well as an outdoor patio. Food will include a mix of pizza, burgers, wraps and salads.
