The first brewery in Mason County!
Grove Street Brewhouse, the first brewery in Mason County, opened for business in October 2009. Owned by local couple Jeff and Tessie Thompson, the Pontiac dealership-turned-brewery in downtown Shelton features its own on-site pub brewery, much of the original timber, frame, and woodwork, a bar serving 7+ house-made beers, local wines and ciders, house-made sodas, an impressive variety of specialty teas, and a full kitchen serving house baked goods and homemade pub fare. Run by the Thompsons, along with their two daughters, and a fantastic kitchen, service, and brewery crew, GSB invites you to join us for lunch, dinner, or just a couple beers. We are all-ages friendly, so bring your family and neighbors. Short for “Public House”, our goal is bring the true meeting place “pub” culture to Shelton and Mason County.
**We keep a rotation of 7 or 8 beers at all times. At any given time you are likely to find most or all of the following:
Cota Kolsch: An unfiltered version of this light-bodied, crisp German Ale. Very floral and fruity, with a subtle, lingering bitterness from German and Yakima hops. 4.7 % ABV
Hefeweizen: Made with equal parts malted barley and wheat malt, and a true Bavarian wheat yeast strain, this beer has a fruity and spicy aroma to it. very aromatic and flavorful, the fruitiness is matched by a slightly tart flavor. 5.0% ABV
GSB ESB: An Extra Special Bitter with a nice fruity malt aroma and flavor that is balanced by plenty of Yakima-grown hops. 6.0% ABV
IPAcalypse: HOPS! 6.0% ABV
Albino Pine Pale Ale: A classic American Pale Ale with crisp malt and hop balance. 5.2% ABV
Ol’ Pinchfister: Brought back by popular demand, this beer was originally brewed as a winter warmer. Chocolate, roast, and spicy flavors create a flavorful malt profile. 6.0 % ABV
Mahogany Nob: A rich robust porter, coffee and chocolate dominate the aroma and flavor. The hop bitterness is balanced nicely by the strong malt character. 5.4% ABV
Guest Tap: Men’s Room Original Red, from Elysian Brewing.
Seasonals, Specialties, and Whatever-we-feel-like-beers also show up on our taps. Be sure to ask your server or bartender what’s pouring.
**Expect to regularly see new beers. We take customer input seriously, and wish to develop a line of beers consistent with customer thirst. If ya don’t like it, we’ll probably stop making it. Then we will try something else. Don’t be afraid to tell us what you like. We probably won’t make a light lager…
