Northern Ales Brewery

Nice place to have a cold one. Good food & excellent music, although music is not always on the play list. Friendly and comfortable.

The beer is great, the service is great. The owners are friendly. Kids like throwing peanut shells on the floor while drinking homemade root beer.

I'll start by saying this is a really outstanding microbrewery. We tried three of their taps -- a light ale, a darker ale and an IPA. All three were excellent. If we had come expecting great beer and just happened to order food, I think we would have been delighted. But a local had told us they have great pizza... More

Kettle Falls ... really all of NE Washington ... is nothing fancy. But this place is a true delight. Run by the nicest people in the world offering great beer, fresh food, and peanuts everywhere. A brief list of favorite beers is: IPA, smoked porter, stout, and honey basil bragot (amazing!). They don't have a huge menu, but what they... More

Family friendly, live music every Thursday and most Fridays. Free peanuts, throw your shells on the floor. And local culture. Bar food is good, serving pizza, sandwiches, salads and specials. Great stop for a weary traveler in need of a good time.

We stopped here on our way back from a hike. The food was great! We tried the beer sampler, which included 10 - 2 oz samples of all their beers. It was a nice way to sample the wide variety of choices. The thai peanut pizza special was great!. The burger was done correct and tasty. Looking forward to coming... More

Visited this brewery after reading about the good beers and pizza; other reviews are right! Thin crust pizza and seasonal beers went great together at a reasonable price. Solid customer service in a cavernous, utilitarian space. Would return but suggest readers also check out the Republic Brewing Company for comparison's sake.

A nice stop for lunch or dinner on your way to somewhere. Kettle Falls is not most people's destination but Northern Ales is worth a stop. Great beer and a fun little menu that tops the local fare in Kettle Falls and Colville.

We reviewed last year and just a little update. Menu changes include pizza everyday. Good thin crust choices in several sizes. All good value, the locally made brats are still there and a tasty treat if your a fan. Beers are pretty much the same, except we're getting lighter choices. I don't mean light like Coors light, but good ales... More
