Uptown Vancouver, Washington has a new taproom and whiskey bar. The Thirsty Sasquatch opened April 13, 2015 at 2110 Main Street. They are completely focused on craft beer and spirits from the Northwest and West Coast.
The taproom has 26 taps pouring Northwest craft beer, wine, cider, kombucha and root beer. Their tap list is online and posted on a screen, complete with how much is remaining in the keg. We enjoyed the variety on the list, which includes Vancouver breweries such as Loowit and Ghost Runners and Bend offerings from Crux and Boneyard.
The Spirits menu offered pours from Northwest distilleries, and they offer a tasting flight of 0.75 oz. sample pours.
The Thirsty Sasquatch has no in-house food service, but they invite you to call their neighboring restaurants for food delivery to your table. The handy menus on the table on our visit were from Sabor Mexicano and Vancouver Pizza Company.
The decor is minimalist with wood paneling and custom wood benches and tables. A large mural covers one wall, and a small Sasquatch carving looks down on everyone from behind the counter. There are two booths that can seat six, 12 seats at the bar and several four-top tables with bench seating against the wall and metal chairs on the opposite side.
They will open a beer garden patio soon (the concrete still needs to be poured) for outdoor seating in back.
The Thirsty Sasquatch is for age 21 and over only, no underage patrons allowed. Well-behaved dogs are welcome. They are open 2 pm – 10 pm.
We enjoyed our afternoon quaff of beer. It is a a pleasant no-fuss place to enjoy craft brews and spirits amongst adults. It’s easy to access the location by either car or C-Tran.
