The Story Behind the Brew
Twenty years ago, Bob Maphet and Brian Sollenberger started producing Diamond Knot brews in the back of a building on the waterfront. What started as Mukilteo’s first microbrewery has morphed into an establishment fit for the whole family. Diamond Knot doubled its size in 2013, adding the alehouse and a year-round ice cream and coffee bar featuring local favorites like Snoqualmie Ice Cream and Black Swan Roasting Company.

The Nautical Vibe
Named after a 1947 shipwrecked vessel, Diamond Knot’s interior radiates a wharf-like, nautical vibe with its large rustic beams and open plank ceilings. Upon expansion, Diamond Knot worked diligently to preserve the patina of the brewery, while creating an equally relaxed, casual atmosphere in the alehouse where Knot Heads could enjoy the cuisine and beverages with kids in tow.

For the Minis
Diamond Knot totally gets kids, giving every child their own paper menu and overflowing cup of crayons, eliminating the perennial fight over the red crayon. And a full kids’ menu provides plenty of options for picky palates. Petite pizzaiolis can make their own two-topping masterpieces, a perfect entrée to keep little hands busy and fill their bellies. Genius! Other favorites include homemade mac ‘n’ cheese, chicken fingers, and burgers. If your little Knot Heads are deserving of a treat, order up a round of root beer floats, made with the finest handcrafted root beer in town.

For the Parents
For parental appetites, unique flavor combinations (peanut butter bacon burger anyone?), generous portions, and local ingredients fill the menu. The hottest items are the signature stone grill entrées, where Mom and Dad cook up their meat table-side on a flaming hot 750 degree stone. Regional culinary creations like the 12th Man salad for the loud and proud Seahawks fan add even more local flavor to the dining experience. And beer isn’t the only thing that is fresh and local; brioche buns are baked in-house daily, fries are fresh cut, and salad dressings and sauces are homemade, many incorporating house brews. From pizzas to prawns, salads to steak, Diamond Knot’s menu will entice you to come back again (and again) to try something new.
