Fall Approaches

Brewmaster Russell here. As you can see, there was no ‘Summer’ post. Goes to show just how busy we are during Summer! For day to day updates, like us on Facebook. But many great things happened: beer festivals, brewers nights, beer releases, music, fun and friends.  Not a whole lot of sleep or Not Brewery happened.  We call that ‘Summer’!  Days were basically brewing or festival/event, short crabbing break, taproom, repeat.  But I’ll do a recap of a few of the bigger events Continue reading

Happy New Years!

Happy New Year Everyone!

You know what that means?

This year’s barleywine clocks in at 9.9%, and I think it came out a little more chocolatey and hoppy than last year.  But we’re going to put it side by side with 2012, so you can come decide for yourself!

Normal hours today, 2-9.  Closed tomorrow, New Years Day.

Like the fireworks package says, have a “Safe and Sane” New Years!

Update: 11/25/13

So if you’ve ever wondered where our spent grain goes, here’s two of the happy recipients!  Farmer Kevin of Sol Farm here on the island takes it and feeds it to his pigs, composts it, and so on.  You can find his produce, eggs, and pork at the Bainbridge Island Farmers’ Market, and appearing at local restaurants including Hitchcock, Cafe Nola, The Harbour Public House, and others.  The little oinkers have tons of space in the field to run around in and all the spent grain, vegetable trimmings, and windfall apples they can eat. Super cute! Pigs are fantastic.  Picture after the jump:

Today, September 19th: New Beer Alert! SMaSHaSS: Amarillo Fresh Hop Ale will hit the taproom today, and select establishments shortly thereafter. SMaSHaSS: Single Malt, Single Hop, Single State. 100% Washington malt and more than a hundred pounds of just-picked Amarillo hops still wet off the bine.
