Bainbridge Brewing celebrates 7th anniversary this Saturday

Washington Beer News - Thu, 08/15/2019 - 5:05pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


Bainbridge Brewing celebrates its 7th anniversary this Saturday, August 17th at the Brewery and Taproom. In addition to some special beers, the all-day even will include live music and some very special food—roasting a pig that was fattened up on spent grain from the brewery.

Complete details about the 7th Anniversary beer and Saturday’s event can be found in the press release below.

Bainbridge Brewing Celebrates 7th Anniversary

Bainbridge Island, WA – August 8th, 2019 – Bainbridge Brewing is proud to announce that it will celebrate its 7th Anniversary this coming Saturday, August 17th from 12:00 to 10:00PM.

Celebrating another great year of brewing Island Crafted Ales, Bainbridge Brewing will host a day-long party at its Brewery and Taproom (9415 Coppertop Loop, Bainbridge Island) this Saturday, August 17th. The brewery will be digging deep into its cellar and pulling out rare and wonderful relics, such as the 1st Anniversary Barrel Aged Wheatwine, all of which will only be on tap during the Anniversary Party.

Local surf rock band Ocean Men will be playing starting at 7:00. Along this tropical island vibe we’re doing a pig roast! Having conveniently just returned from Miami with a suitcase full of sour oranges, we’ll be making up some mojo and spending much of the afternoon roasting half of an island-raised and brewery-spent-grain-fed pig from our friends at Shady Acres Farm in our trusty caja china. Neighboring Powell and Jones Fine Chocolates are currently hard at work in their mad scientist laboratory developing an ice cream using the 7th Anniversary Ale. Food sales should start up about 4:00.

For this year’s Anniversary Ale, Brewmaster Russell Everett decided to keep it “simple”. “For the first five Anniversary Ales we did big, barrel aged beers, and often hit them with things like coffee, or chocolate, or both in the case of the 5th Anniversary. Then last year we took a break and brewed a Triple Brut IPA. This year we got ahold of eight awesome Woodinville Whiskey bourbon barrels and I was like, let’s just brew up a big mean stout, have it hang out in there for a good long while, and let it speak for itself.”

Of course he still can’t leave well enough alone, so the 11.5% ABV Imperial Stout, which went into the barrels back in November, also included a healthy dose of Dark Belgian Candi Syrup, giving the chocolate, coffee and roast characters an accent note of raisins and stonefruit. In a break from tradition, and showcasing the brewery’s recent switch from 22oz bottles to 16oz cans, this year rather than waxed bottles the 7th Anniversary Ale will be released in 16oz cans. Cans will be available starting Saturday at both the brewery and the Bainbridge Brewing Alehouse in singles and four packs, with a select number of cases and sixtels making their way out around the sound shortly afterwards through Bainbridge’s distributor, Northwest Beverages.

Bainbridge Brewing was founded in 2012 by father and son duo – Chuck and Russell Everett. The brewery serves craft beer to thirsty islanders and visitors seven days a week from its Bainbridge Brewing Taproom located in Coppertop Park (9415 Coppertop Loop NE, Suite 104, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110); and from the Bainbridge Brewing Alehouse located in downtown Winslow near the ferry (500 Winslow Way E, Suite 110, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110). Bainbridge Brewing self-distributes its award-winning craft beer in kegs and bottles on the island, as well as at the nearby Clearwater Casino and Resort. Around Western Washington Bainbridge Brewing craft beer can be found in many grocery stores, bottle shops, restaurants and pubs via its Western Washington distributor Northwest Beverages.

Icicle Brewing announces new ownership structure

Washington Beer News - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 4:15pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


Icicle Brewing of Leavenworth, Washington just announced a change in its ownership structure. Pamela and Oliver Brulotte gifted a portion of ownership to four key employees that have greatly contributed to the company’s success. The expanded ownership helps ensure that Icicle Brewing remains a customer-focused, independent and local company.

The new owners include Joel Martinez (CEO), Dean Priebe (Brewmaster and Senior VP of Brewing Operations), Jesse Willis (VP of Sales), and Jason Leal (VP of Wholesale Operations).

“We value and appreciate the contributions that all of our employees have made over the last eight-plus years to get Icicle to where it is today. As we continue to grow, we wanted to share this journey with four of our long-term employees who have worked in key roles at the brewery,” said Co-Founder, Pamela Brulotte.

Pamela and Oliver Brulotte will remain involved in guiding the company through the next phase of growth as part of the newly formed board of directors, which also includes the four new owners. The executive team will include the four new owners plus Rachel Nicholson (VP of Taproom Operations) and Chris Danforth (VP of Marketing).

Pamela will continue to focus on training employees, volunteering with local organizations, and her work as President of the Washington Brewers Guild. Pamela also works with the Brewers Association Market Development Committee. Oliver will continue to support Icicle’s growth by focusing on visioning work and special projects.

The new ownership structure comes on the heels of a newly completed 13,500 square foot production brewing facility and a Leavenworth brewpub remodel that is expected to be completed in late September. See our report about those developments.

According to a press release from the company, the new production facility includes the equipment from the existing brewhouse plus four new fermenters which allows Icicle to brew 50% more beer annually with future maximum production potential increasing 250%. The new brewery also includes a new Comac canning line and features carbon capture technology, which is the first of its kind in Washington state.

When complete, the brewpub remodel will add about 1,200 square feet of retail space. In addition, a new five-barrel brew system from Premier Stainless will complement the beer offerings from the production facility.

Co-Founder, Oliver Brulotte said, “The new five-barrel system will be a real game-changer for our guests who come visit us at the Leavenworth brewpub. We will primarily use this system for weekly ‘brewpub only’ releases which will give craft beer enthusiasts new brews to try more often.”

Washington Beer News - Mon, 08/12/2019 - 1:29pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


We recently published a story about new brewery openings. Well, this one missed being part of that story by just a few days. Volition Brewing recently opened its brewery taproom very quietly and softly. Here’s what we know. The location is on the main drag in downtown Noth Bend, they are open seven days a week, and by all accounts the beer is good. Well-mannered dogs and well-behaved kids are welcome.

Photo from Facebook.

Beyond beer, you can get snacks and prepackaged salads and sandwiches at the taproom. You are also welcome to bring in food or order a pizza for delivery.

112 W North Bend Way

Monday thru Thursday: 3:00 – 8:00
Friday: 3:00 – 9:00
Saturday: Noon – 9:00
Sunday: Noon – 8:00

I haven’t been able to visit yet, but one review on the brewery’s Facebook page said, “The devotion to quality ingredients and amazing knowledge and customer service is apparent as soon as you walk in the door. You feel like family as soon as you walk in.”

Another said, “Tasty Beer Recipes & Quality Brew! This will be your new favorite local hang out. Prime location downtown North Bend. They did an amazing job remodeling the space, creating a posh setting using reclaimed materials from the building. Owners/staff are very friendly. Good people with a genuine mission to create beer for you to enjoy.”

Some sad news recently on Facebook, and since I know that some people don’t do Facebook, I share it here. In short, Sound Brewery of Poulsbo, WA announced that it is closing its restaurant. As if that’s not sad enough, it sounds like the future of the brewery itself is in jeopardy and might be closing as well.

Here is what they said on Facebook on Sunday, August 11th.

“Sound Brewery restaurant will be closing with its last day being Aug 24th. We will be open 2pm til 8:00pm for beer, wine, cider only today and next Sunday and 2:00pm til 9:00pm each day for the next couple of weeks. Feel free to bring in your own food.”

“Thanks for your support over the last 3 years for the restaurant and almost a decade for the brewery. These last two weeks could be your last chance to get Sound beer. The brewery’s fate remains unclear at this point but will likely be closing at the end of the month also.”

Black Raven Brewing annual Flock Party on Saturday, August 17th

Washington Beer News - Fri, 08/09/2019 - 2:27pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


Each year Black Raven Brewing hosts its annual Flock Party, which is just a big party with a lot of really great beer. Not just the regular lineup of beers from Black Raven, but there’s usually a lot of really cool, small-batch and otherwise badass beers for your enjoyment. Simply put, it’s a gas. An annual blowout with live music, food trucks, and beer.

This year the Flock Party is on Saturday, August 17th at the new Black Raven Brewery and Taproom in Woodinville. Note that it is not at the original location in  Redmond. In fact, the Redmond location will be closed that day. Don’t get confused and show up in Redmond. You’ll be lonely and beerless.

This is an all-ages event. Even dogs are welcome, as long as they have manners.

10th Annual Black Raven Flock Party
15902 Woodinville-Redmond RD NE
Woodinville, WA 98072
Noon – 8PM (Last call at 7:15)

Music Schedule 

  • Jessica Brasch 12:15pm- 1:15pm
  • McTuff 1:30pm-2:45pm
  • Darci Carlson 3pm-4:15pm
  • Dub Lounge International 4:30pm-5:45pm
  • Down North 6pm-7:30pm

Flock Party Essential Tips 

1) Please carpool if possible. This is our most popular event of the year and parking can become scarce, we recommend riding with friends to help us utilize our area more efficiently.

2) Pace yourself and drink lots of water. We offer A LOT of beers at Flock Party and we realize the “fear of missing out” is real. You may not get to try everything and that’s ok, we want you to have a good time and to be safe. Drink water and have some delicious food.

3) Dress for the whole day. Western Washington weather can be crazy, as we all know, so we recommend layers, sunscreen, even preparation for rain. *fingers-crossed that doesn’t happen*

4) Flock Party is dog-friendly! For one day a year, we open up our whole facility to our furry-faced friends. We ask that they stay on leash and be well-behaved doggos (no excessive barking, jumping, general unruly behavior). We’ll provide water and belly rubs.

5) It’s a new location for us, so there might be some small bumps here and there but rest assured we will still have fun.
