Our Vision

Brewing beer on Whidbey Island has been a long-time dream of brothers Marc and Mitch. With dedication, patience and encouragement from their local community, that dream came to life in summer of 2020. Today, they own and operate Whidbey Island’s largest brewery and craft a multitude of flavorful ales that are available at Penn Cove Brewing Taprooms and local bars and restaurants.
