Crossbuck Brewing now running at full steam in Walla Walla’s historic train depot

Washington Beer News - Tue, 01/15/2019 - 3:55pm

In a town noted for world class wine, with dozens upon dozens of wineries to call its own, Crossbuck Brewing is bucking the trend. Located in the historic train depot just off Highway 12 on your way into downtown Walla Walla, the brewery is now brewing its beer on-site and has planned a grand opening event for January 27th (details below). Keep an eye on the company’s Facebook page.

For some time now, Crossbuck Brewing has contract-brewed its beer at other breweries in the area, but now the system is up and running and they are ready to start pouring house-made beers. In addition to the event at the brewery, Steven Brack, Crossbuck Brewing’s brewer, will be in Seattle during early February for tasting events (details to come). Keep an eye on the company’s Facebook page.

Crossbuck Brewing shares the old depot building with Walla Walla Steak Company. The two also share a common owner (Fire & Vine Hospitality) and a kitchen. Basically, two connected concepts inside the historic depot. You can take a look at the food menu on Crossbuck Brewing’s website.

As I reported a few months ago, this is no small venture. The build-out included some massive renovations and additions to the old depot building, like the addition of a whole new, attached building and the addition of an old rail car. See the Facebook page for more pictures, videos, etc of the construction project.

Here is more information about Crossbuck Brewing’s Freighthoppers Mug Club Membership:

  • $79.00 yearly (existing members get 25% discount on renewal) Only 125 memberships available.

How breweries are stepping up to help furloughed federal workers

Washington Beer News - Tue, 01/15/2019 - 3:11pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


Beer cannot solve every problem. You cannot use beer to pay your mortgage. It will not pay for your child’s college tuition. It cannot keep the lights on or the furnace burning. Beer offers no remedy for the stalemate between Congress and the President. That said, beer just might be able to brighten an otherwise sorrowful day for a furloughed federal employee.

Here are some examples of ways that breweries, and others, are stepping up to offer some relief to those directly impacted by the government shutdown. I have no doubt that there are many others doing their part. I wish there were more local examples to share with you. Maybe I’m unaware. (Use the comments below, or contact me.)

Locally, in Seattle, Schooner Brewing Company posted this statement on Twitter today:

Furloughed employees can furlough their food tab at Schooner until the government reopens! Show us your government ID and get one meal a day (alcohol not included) & pay it back after the government reopens & you get paid!

No doubt, there are legal considerations to think about, but they’re doing what they can.

Also on Twitter today, Rogue Ales and Spirits had this to say:

Effective immediately: now through the end of the government shutdown, we’re inviting members of the Coast Guard to our 3 Rogue Public Houses on the Oregon coast for a 25% discount on beer & a 50% discount on food.

The U.S. Coast Guard, our neighbors in both Newport & Astoria, work hard to protect our coasts every day. But right now, they’re doing so without a paycheck. So we’re doing our part to say thank you.

Sweetwater Brewing of Atlanta used Twitter to share its offer as well:

If you’re a furloughed federal employee, we think you deserve a beer or two. Show your govt ID to our bar staff and your first two are on us.

You can also add Boulevard Brewing of Kansas City to the list.

For those bearing the brunt of the federal gov’t shutdown, we offer a little bit of solace. Through the duration of the shutdown, show your valid US gov’t-issued employee ID for furloughed pricing on beer & discounted food – because you might need to get out & enjoy a beer.

Because of the shutdown, City Barrel Brewing Company (also located in Kansas City) was left with a bunch of beer that it could not package for sale (they did not get the packaging approved by the TTB before the shutdown). Instead of letting the Hazy IPA go to waste or pass it’s prime, this brand new brewery opted to give the beer away. The brewery took advantage of a legal loophole and gave the beer away for free at a “private, ticketed event.” Only furloughed federal workers were invited to the event. Get it? Reportedly, we’re talking about $20k worth of beer!

Zip Line Brewing, located in Lincoln, Nebraska, has a special deal for furloughed employees. What it is calling The Growler Relief Act of 2019 promises currently idled federal employees a free growler fill every Friday until the government gets back to work.

In the Washington, D.C. area someone set up a website called Pay it Furloughed that allows you to buy a beer for a furloughed federal worker. They’ve partnered with a number of local bars and thus far over 1,300 beers have been purchased on behalf of federal workers. There is a mechanism in place by which the workers can prove their status and redeem their beers.

No doubt, to a federal worker currently struggling to pay medical bills or put groceries on the table, a free growler of beer or a couple bucks off a pint of beer is little more than a token gesture. Still, I hope it makes them feel a little bit better knowing that members of the public and the brewing community sympathize with their plight.

Use the comments below to share information about any other breweries that are offering furloughed federal workers discounts or other special deals.

The E9 Brewery is opening new location downtown

Washington Beer News - Tue, 01/15/2019 - 9:08am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


Tacoma’s Engine House No. 9 Restaurant and Brewery is on the move. The pub will remain at the current location, in the historic firehouse near the corner of 6th Avenue and Pine Street, but the company is moving the brewery to a location in the city’s historic Brewery District, closer to downtown, at 2506 Fawcett Avenue. The new spot is just a couple blocks away from two other breweries: Black Fleet Brewing and the 7 Seas Brewing Tacoma location.

Engine House No. 9 opened in 1993, making it one of the oldest breweries in the state and the oldest brewery in Tacoma. In 2011, the business was taken over by a successful Tacoma restaurant group, X Group, and the E9 Brewery reputation has skyrocketed since, with the brewery winning many awards and accolades in recent years.

Currently Engine House No. 9 (E9) brews its beer next to the firehouse in a smallish facility, but the new digs will provide 9,000 square feet of much-needed elbow room. This will be the home of the brewing operations as well as a new taproom. The new brewing  facility will allow E9 to double its brewing capacity and provide room for growth.

New brewing equipment is on order from Portland’s Pinnacle Stainless. The target is to open some time later this year.

As well-versed beer geeks know, the E9’s head brewer, Shane Johns, has earned a reputation for his specialty beers, like sour beers, barrel-aged beers, and so on. Many local beer geeks are probably unaware that  the brewery’s beers are distributed to exotic, far-off lands like Manhattan, Brooklyn, Boston, and Washington D.C. They also ship some beer to target markets in California, Oregon, and Vancouver, B.C.

Ballard Alliance is launching a Ballard Brewery Passport program

Washington Beer News - Fri, 01/11/2019 - 1:46pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+


Starting tomorrow, January 12th, beer drinkers are invited to pick up their Ballard Brewery Passport and start earning prizes by visiting the 11 breweries that call Ballard home. Start the process by picking up your passport at any of the participating breweries (listed below) or at Hattie’s Hat restaurant in downtown Ballard.

Spearheaded by Ballard Alliance, and made possible by the City of Seattle Office of Economic Development’s Only in Seattle project, the Ballard Brewery Passport program showcases the walkability and quality of Ballard’s brewery district. It is described as an informative map and guide that highlights important details about each participating brewery.

“The Ballard neighborhood has an amazing concentration of talented brewers with a long history of producing some of the finest craft brews in the region and around the world,” said Mike Stewart, Ballard Alliance Executive Director. “We wanted to create a fun way to showcase the Ballard Brewery District and encourage visitors and locals alike to experience all of Ballard’s fabulous craft brewery options as well as visit the Ballard Shopping and Dining District.”

Passport users are encouraged to collect unique stamps from each brewery and redeem completed passports for a prize. No purchase is required, but if you are visiting a brewery and not drinking the beer, what’s the point? You are only cheating yourself.

The two-tier prize system includes a keychain for collecting six stamps or commemorative drinkware for collecting all 11 stamps. Get the keychains at any of the breweries; go to Hattie’s Hat to get your grand prize drinkware. Passport holders are encouraged to use the hashtag #ballardbrewed on social media.
