Schooner Brewing reopens its taproom kitchen, teams up with Ethan Stowell

Washington Beer News - Fri, 02/15/2019 - 10:44am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Last month we shared news that Schooner Brewing had merged with San Juan Seltzer. At that time, the company also announced that it was temporarily shutting down the kitchen at the taproom in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood. Today we learned that the kitchen is reopening with the food program now managed by Ethan Stowell Restaurants.

The kitchen at the taproom is undergoing some renovations but will remain open as the work is completed. In addition to providing food to the taproom, Ethan Stowell Restaurants will use the kitchen as its commissary kitchen, where the company produces desserts and fresh pastas for all of its 14 Seattle locations.

“This partnership offers ESR the opportunity to expand our catering business while opening a fun, new spot for food and drink in south Seattle,” said Ethan Stowell. “We’re looking forward to hosting cooking classes, charity events, and collaborating with Schooner and San Juan Seltzer. Who knows, there may even be an ESR beer one of these days!”

“The concept is simple, come down enjoy a beer or spiked seltzer along with some great approachable food,” said Ron Lloyd, President and CEO of Schooner Brewing and San Juan Seltzer. “We want an environment that is unique and different for our customer and Ethan gets that. We are already coming up with different recipes that connect great food with our unique beers and seltzers.”

This newly forged alliance will also see Ethan Stowell Restaurants serve beers from Schooner Brewing and seltzers from San Juan Seltzer at its 14 restaurants. According to a press release issued on February 15th, Ethan Stowell recently became a minority partner in San Juan Seltzer but does not intend to have a hand in the production of the seltzer or the beer.

Flatstick Pub announces plans to open in Tacoma

Washington Beer News - Thu, 02/14/2019 - 2:05pm

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Flatstick Pub will open a new location later this year in downtown Tacoma. The 12,000 square-foot pub will be the largest of the company’s four locations. This according to a report from Tacoma Untapped. The other three locations are in Kirkland, Pioneer Square (Seattle) and South Lake Union (Seattle).

Like the other Flatstick Pubs, the Tacoma pub will offer the company’s signature and proprietary golf-themed games: mini-golf, Duffleboard™, Cup Hunter and ‘stick putt! Along with that, a menu featuring nothing but Washington-brewed beers from independent breweries. As they did at the South Lake Union location, they will partner with Ethan Stowell Restaurants to put together a food menu.

According to the report, Founder and CEO Sam Largent has search for a Tacoma location for years and is excited to bring the Flatstick concept to the South Sound. “We have felt that Tacoma was a good fit for a Flatstick for quite a while,” he told Tacoma Untapped. “I’ve been looking for a space for us down there for over two years.”

The building, located at 809 Pacific Avenue, formerly the home of Learning Sprout Toys, was designed by local architect Silas E. Nelsen and built in 1927. Over the decades it has been home to several different businesses.

“Everything finally came together on this site and we couldn’t be more thrilled to get going,” Largent said in the Tacoma Untapped report. “I love the character of this old building and of the neighborhood in general. We are excited to be working with our new landlord on restoring the building to its original look and utilizing the second floor for a lot of our games.”

While beer drinkers are familiar with the nearby breweries, like Odd Otter Brewing and Pacific Brewing and Malting, Flatstick Pub is just one more addition to the growing nightlife scene on Pacific Avenue. Other nearby establishments include Matador Restaurant, The Office on Pacific, The Forum-Tacoma, Meconi’s Pub and Eatery, and Dorky’s Arcade. Just a block up the hill, McMenamins is scheduled to open their newest location, McMenamins’ Elks Temple, this spring.

On Saturday, February 16, 2019, Hellbent Brewing unleashes its latest beer released in collaboration with the Emerald City Supporters: Seattle Sunshine Hazy Pale Ale. When the sky opens above the stadium, hard-charging Sounders fans respond to the pelting rain with fervor, chanting “Seattle Sunshine” at their opponents.

About Seattle Sunshine Hazy Pale

The newest Emerald City Supporters beer is a hazy pale ale that’s light in color and malty with soft bready notes. It’s really all about the hops, and contains no bittering additions. The first hops that touch the wort–Mosaic, Citra, and Simcoe–are added in the whirlpool, forming citrus, tropical, and stone fruit hop flavors. Then we kick the hop party up a notch by dry hopping at the end of fermentation with Azacca, Citra, Amarillo, Mosaic, and Simcoe, which creates a sublime hop burst of citrus and tropical fruit aromas that will blow your boots off.

ABV: 5.7%

IBU’s: 34

How to Become a Craft Brewer – Insight from 10 Industry Insiders

Washington Beer News - Wed, 02/13/2019 - 8:09am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Guest post by Morgan Walker Clarke

Over the last 10 to 15 years, the world surrounding the beer industry has dramatically shifted. With a new generation of artsy, alcohol-loving millennials who greatly enjoy turning everything into a unique, emotional experience, the demand for beer drinking to fall in line with that concept has become a high priority in the culture.

Where mass-produced six-pack cans of so-so beer and super bowl Sundays used to be the primary ways to enjoy beer socially, passionate craft brewers have risen out of the shadows and changed the way we see and experience the handsome amber beverage. If you love beer and the idea of working with it, you no longer must find a job at a bar or in a huge commercial factory. Now you can find quaint beer dens aglow with hard-working craft brewers who are willing and eager to help you understand what great beer should taste like and how you can create that great beer.

Craft brewers are passionate about what they do and about growing the craft brewery market. Here are what 10 insiders have to say about what it takes to become a craft brewer.

1. Cody Morris (formerly of Epic Ales and Mollusk Brewing)

This young entrepreneur fell in love with beer as a college student and took a job at a big brewery and a side job with a retail wine store in Seattle, Wash. after graduating from college. It did not take him long to figure out he wanted to combine ideas from the brewery and the wine store to create his own craft brewery. Why couldn’t he make masterpiece beers and invite people in to taste and experience the process just like in the wine industry?

Although the idea was good, he quickly found that opening your own successful brewery was not easy. It took him some time to succeed — experimenting with taste and atmosphere and failing often — but he never gave up. According to Morris, the most important thing you need to know when pursuing a career as a craft brewer is to have a solid plan and be extremely flexible and hardworking when it comes to executing that plan.

2. Dustin Hazer of Helio Basin Brewing Company

Dustin Hazer of Helio Basin Brewing Company says that when pursuing the idea of being a craft brewer, you really need to decide if it’s something you want deep in your bones or if it’s just a passing interest. He explains you need to accept that craft brewing is a lifestyle and not just a job in the industry. You must really love it to endure the long hours of hard physical labor that go into craft brewing with what is often low compensation in return, especially when you are just starting out. According to him, if you love it, every bit of that work is worth it.

3. Danny Bruckert of Circa Brewing Co.

Craft brewers are a tight-knit circle, and if you can get an in with one, you can often network with the rest. Danny Bruckert of Circa Brewing Co. says that a terrific way to learn how to be a craft brewer and what it takes to succeed in the business is to volunteer at a craft brewery.

4. Erik Lars Myers of Mystery Brewing Company

If you are unwilling to push into the creative side of the business and try out new things, it can be very hard to get your start in the craft brewing world. That’s why Erik Lars Myers of Mystery Brewing company emphasizes the importance of being willing to take a risk with innovative ideas. Realize that what you are getting into is a field that is growing in competitiveness, so you must bring something unique to the table.

5. Andrew Hood of Sun King Brewery

Andrew Hood started out doing grunt work at a major brewing company he had pushed his way into while attending the Siebel Institute, a Chicago brewing school. His dream was to become a master brewer, and he quickly realized the importance of not only gaining experience from working alongside other brewers but also getting the education and figuring out what works in the competitive craft brewing market. You must be willing to start from the bottom, work your way up and do the research you need to learn how to be the best. This may include school, home brewing sessions and more.

6. Chris Cramer of Karl Strauss Brewing

Capital is a hurdle every new business owner must face. Chris Cramer of Karl Strauss Brewing stresses the need to know how expensive the endeavor of becoming a successful craft brewer can be and to raise more capital than you think you will need before you start.

7. Michael Kane of Kane Brewing Company

Be realistic, have a capital cushion and be patient, counsels Michael Kane of Kane Brewing Company, who warns that “starting a brewery from scratch is incredibly time-consuming and expensive.” You will need to buy all the equipment and ingredients you required for brewing, find a space to work and open in and fill out a lot of business paperwork before you can even start creating craft beer and serving the public.

8. Julia Herz of the Brewers Association Craft Beer Department

Julia Herz, program director of the Brewers Associations craft beer program, advises that “the most successful ventures are highly organized on both the business and quality fronts.” She warns that “you can’t just make beer and [hope] people fly through the doors.” You need to make sure what you are making is high quality and be smart in how you go about marketing it and budgeting your costs. Do not just buy equipment and quit your job without a concrete plan of action and a calculation of the risk involved.

9. Steve Parkes of the American Brewers Guild

Steve Parkes is the owner and lead instructor of the American Brewers Guild, one of the premier brewing schools in the nation for the craft brewing industry. If you want to get into craft beer brewing but don’t know where to start, he can help you learn what you need to know to survive in the field. He saw the need in the industry for education of brewing science and business, so he created several classes for aspiring brewers, including a Craft Brewers Apprenticeship Program. If you don’t know the science behind brewing — like what fermentation enzymes are used to break down the yeast in your beer — and you don’t know the business, Parkes feels you won’t get far.

Morgan Walker Clarke is a writer and food aficionado from Dallas, Texas. He has 10+ years of restaurant and craft brewing experience as well as an extensive background in food science. In his spare time, he enjoys creating his own recipes for his friends and family to enjoy! He is a frequent contributor to the food-science blog for Enzyme Innovation.
