a jaunt through the mountains to a nice touristy town.
we’ve been to leavenworth before. this time, we went to find out if the Leavenworth Pub & Brewery still existed.
turns out, it doesn’t. the space that formerly housed it has been taken over by a respectable italian establishment called Visconti’s who happens to serve Leavenworth Brewery Beer. how’s that possible? well, apparently Leavenworth Brewery Beers are still being produced–in Olympia, Washington, at a brewery called Fish Brewing Co.
That said, we had some italian food and some beer that went east across the mountain passes (just like we did). but both were good, thankfully.
Then we checked out the Gingerbread Factory as we always do when we head over there (in fact, most of the time, it’s the entire excuse for going in the first place). but, it was
closed. and for sale. go figure.
on the way back we stopped at the homefires bakery just outside of town, picked up some good bread & cookies. then back across the pass westerly, as it started to snow around 2800ft.
