If you want to know where to travel on Whidbey to find craft beer, wine, liqueur, mead and cider, get a map from Experience Whidbey.

Karen and Dave Meyer saw a need for providing a simple way for tourists and locals to find craft beverages on Whidbey. They talked with several of the owners of these businesses, and there was strong agreement that this was needed and would be a big boost to getting visitors to their places.


“Experience Whidbey” developed a map brochure that includes craft beverage producers on Whidbey Island (currently there are 12). There is also an Experience Whidbey website with details like hours and events for each location. The website can be linked to via a unique QR code on the map brochure. The brochure is available at each location, in the Chamber offices and at many other local businesses.


The Experience Whidbey craft beverage resource program was launched in January of this year. There are plans to expand it as new craft beverage businesses are opened on Whidbey Island.


Traveling to all of these craft beverage locations is an all-day adventure beginning in Clinton, near the ferry terminal, and ending at Oak Harbor. Having the Experience Whidbey map brochure also makes it easy for island residents to visit the beverage producers near where they live.

Whidbey Island craft beverage locations currently include:



 Spoiled Dog Winery, Clinton

Ott & Hunter Wines, Langley

Dancing Fish Vineyards, Freeland

Holmes Harbor Cellars, Freeland



Thirsty Crab Brewery, Clinton

Ogres Brewing, Cultus Bay

Wicked Teuton Brewing, Oak Harbor
