BELLINGHAM, Wash. – Bellingham’s newest microbrewery has started brewing.

Wander Brewing is the latest addition to the “beer belt” that’s forming downtown along Whatcom Creek.

Owners Chad and Colleen Kuehl have wandered around the world and picked Bellingham as the place they wanted to settle down and start a brewery.

Colleen says it’s been a really positive experience.

Its taproom should be open in a few months.

Another new microbrewery, Aslan Brewing, is currently under construction in downtown Bellingham.
