Nice beers; great food trucks

Wonderful assortment of craft brews with an excellent food truck out front. We were also pleased they had a dry black current cider on tap, which is a resurgent drink especially in the Northwest. Food truck served an excellent Carolina style BBQ.

We had a sampling of six beers made here - 24 ounces in total or about $8. We didn't care much for most of them except for the red ale. It's a busy place that is good for people watching. The staff is friendly and helpful. Food is available from a food truck parked outside.

Make no mistake, there is no food at the brewery. Fortunate for us there was a food truck call “Hot Mess” when we visited. Lots of great beer choices—loved the Belgium hop IPA. When coupled with my Philly Cheesesteak from Hot Mess it was a huge winner!

Best place to see and be seen in Bellingham. Sunnyland community envy! Now with a new location on Kentucky street, bigger is better in this case!

Finally, an American beer I like. I used to drink Guinness or nothing, but Kulshan has adjusted my attitude. My favorite taste is the Russian Stout, which I consume slowly because it is so strong. On the lighter side, the Red Cap Ale and the B___rd Cat IPA are also enjoyable. The undecided can ask for a sampler. The business... More

There is something special about sitting outside (in all kinds of weather thanks to heat lamps) drinking beer, and shucking peanuts at Kulshan's. I like that the outdoor seating arrangements (picnic tables) almost forces you to meet new friends everytime you go. Love the food trucks too. Just find when your favorite is going to be a Kulshan's and show... More

Had a great time. Husband loves their beer. Takes home growler after having beer. Have good food trucks outside different food trucks. One per day. I like that I can have water no problem and have just a sip of hubby's beer.

This is my favorite brewer pub in Bellingham because they have the best beer!! They maintain about a dozen beers on tap including a couple of rotating guest brews (often from local competitors). The have both indoors seating (family section and an over 21 section) and outdoor seating with overhead heaters for some. Expect this place to be very busy... More

This brew pub has a great selection of beers. All are made on location. They will allow you to taste any of them. The decor is totally applicable to their location and their product-beer There is no food but usually at least one food truck is parked on the lot Only drawback is parking! Very busy area.
