#GSVMemberMonday Feature

While the charming town of Edison may be famous for its Chicken Parade along main street at high noon on the last Sunday in February, that’s certainly not the only thing that it’s famous for. From Downtown Edison, take a stroll on Cain’s Court just past iconic Breadfarm and the Longhorn Saloon, then head straight onto Gilkey Avenue. Pull up a chair and come sit a spell at Terramar Brewing and Distilling. Terramar is a delightful destination in its own right.

Owners Chris and Jen Barker and their team have thoughtfully crafted award-winning beer, cider, spirits, and handmade pizzas using farmed and foraged ingredients that reflect the Earth [Terra] and Sea [Mar] of the Skagit Valley. Located in a historic property in the artist village of Edison, and surrounded by views of Puget sound, The San Juan Islands, and Cascade Mountain Range.
Terramar pays tribute to the fertile farmlands of Skagit Valley by producing terroir-driven beer, spirits and cider. Terramar has two separate tasting rooms, each with it’s own menu: The Brewery Taproom which features an outdoor patio and is family and dog friendly with counter service. And the Distillery Tasting Room, or Speakeasy for ages 21+. Regular events are enjoyed monthly such as Cribbage Night, Trivia Night, and more.

What really sets Terramar apart is that they brew their beer from barley that’s grown and craft-malted right here in the Skagit Valley which is provided by Skagit Valley Malting. The cider apples are sourced from Cedardale Orchard in Mt. Vernon. Berries, botanicals, and a few hops come from various Skagit and Whatcom farms as well. Even their pizza crust is made from 100% Skagit Grown wheat that is milled at Cairnspring Mills nearby. They are also growing a variety of native plants, such as juniper, flowering currant, and spruce on their 5 acres to be used in future spirits and liqueurs.

As a true testament to their extraordinary and unique offerings, last spring the team took two gold awards and a silver from the 2022 World Spirits Competition in San Francisco, CA. Terramar’s award winning American Single Malt Whiskey, Vodka, and Gin truly showcase the best of Skagit Valley‘s fertile farmland.

Local grains + local producers = world-class spirits.

We recently caught up with Chris and asked him what his favorite Skagit Grown fruit and/or vegetable was. Here’s what he said:

“We use everything that the Skagit Valley has to offer for our beer, cider, spirits, and food.  If had I had to go with a favorite it would have to be the berries which we use in our beer, cider, spirits, and desserts.” 

We’re thrilled to celebrate Terramar Brewing and Distilling as our #GSVMemberMonday feature this week. You can take a tour of Terramar Brewing and Distilling previously on an Evening Magazine episode HERE.
