Boundary Bay Brewery celebrates A Year of Murray

Movie screenings and a specially brewed beer celebrate the career of Bill Murray 

Everyone has a favorite Bill Murray movie. For me, it might be The Life Aquatic, but you can’t go wrong with Caddy Shack. Boundary Bay Brewery and Bistro in Bellingham has a few Murray favorites, so this year they’re celebrating A Year of Murray with special movie showings in the Mountain Room along with the release of a special beer. The events will include Bill Murray trivia, free popcorn, giveaways, and other Murray-themed activities.

Here is the info straight from the brewery:

At Boundary Bay Brewery, 2019 is being celebrated as “A Year of Murray.” Each month a quintessential Bill Murray film will be screened in the Mountain Room at Boundary Bay. The series began with “Groundhog Day” in February and will continue with “Space Jam” on March 23rd. “Ghostbusters”, “Meatballs”, “Caddyshack” and many more will be included in the screenings at some point this year.  Murray will awe audiences with his quick wit and comedic relief in classics so hilarious that it makes you want to say “it just doesn’t matter” to your regular weekday routine.

Most screenings are 21+, however a few films are rated PG, allowing all-ages to attend. Doors and bar opens 30 minutes before the film starts.

The series will include Bill Murray Trivia, free popcorn, giveaways and other activities. “A Year of Murray” is intended to engage both the average and avid Bill Murray fan by celebrating some of Murray’s best performances in a community environment.

In honor of “A Year of Murray,” Boundary Bay Brewery brewed “Murricane IPA.” This big, hop-forward Northwest IPA explodes with a bouquet of citrusy aromas. Murricane IPA will be served during each Bill Murray film screening, in addition to a few other Boundary Bay beer styles, while supplies last.

More information on the Year of Murray: Bill Murray film screenings can be found at bbaybrewery.com/events or Boundary Bay’s Facebook page.

Independently owned and operated, Boundary Bay Brewery and Bistro has been making great handcrafted beer and fresh, local food for the Bellingham community since 1995.

Boundary Bay Brewery houses a Taproom and family-friendly Bistro, located in a restored historic 1922 warehouse in Downtown Bellingham, across from the Saturday Farmer’s Market.  We have a deck for outdoor dining and a dog-friendly Beer Garden where you can enjoy BBQs, outdoor concerts and nonprofit events during the Summer.

Foggy Noggin Brewing celebrating 9th Anniversary with a weekend of events

Washington Beer News - Thu, 03/07/2019 - 9:36am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Nine years ago, when Foggy Noggin Brewing opened, the local beer landscape looked a lot different. Located in a residential neighborhood, where homes are built on large, wooded lots, on the outskirts of Bothell and the fringe of Woodinville, Foggy Noggin was pretty much the only brewery out there. Now it is one of many breweries in the area.

Still, Foggy Noggin Brewing remains an outlier and there really isn’t anything else quite like it: a small brewery in a backyard shed and a taproom built in the garage at the family home. When the taproom is open on weekends, the crowd usually spills out onto patio furniture in the driveway. As you might imagine, it’s a family affair and the Jamesons welcome you to enjoy their beer.

March 14th through 17th, Foggy Noggin Brewing celebrates its ninth anniversary. Here’s what they’ve planned:

Thursday – March 14th (6pm – 7:30pm)- SORRY, THIS ONE IS SOLD OUT ALREADY. Foggy Noggin Anniversary Ale Vertical Tasting Event. March 14th (6-7:30pm). This is the event you just can’t miss.

Friday – March 15th (3pm – 7pm) – Join us as we celebrate our 9th Anniversary this weekend. We release our 2019 Anniversary Ale (English Old Ale) 6.8% ABV – 55 IBU on tap and limited 22 ounce bottles ($5/bottle). We will have some vintage years of Anniversary Ale on tap, until the kegs are blown.

FRIDAY SPECIAL EVENT- We will tap a Cask of 2019 Anniversary Ale at 3pm. Each of the 3 days of our Anniversary Celebration, the first 16 can get our extremely rare 9th Anniversary Pint Glass, filled with our 2019 Anniversary Ale for $12 and take home the glass.

The 20th Annual Cask Fest, March 23rd in Seattle

Washington Beer News - Wed, 03/06/2019 - 10:14am

It’s March, and you know what that means. The clocks move an hour forward, the calendar flips over to spring, and Washington beer lovers celebrate cask-conditioned beer. The Washington Brewers Guild presents the 20th Annual Cask Fest on Saturday, March 23rd at Seattle Center’s Exhibition Hall. Tickets are on sale now for this often sold-out event. There are two sessions: one in the afternoon and one in the evening.

In all, at least 28 Washington breweries will bring cask-conditioned creations to the event. See the list of breweries below. We’ll have the list of beers soon. Like there will be in excess of 60 cask-conditioned beers poured at the event. This year, the participants have been asked to bring barrel-aged beers and/or wild-fermented ales to the festival in addition to the more-expected beer styles.

Once again, the event sees the release (limited release) of Herbert’s Legendary Cask Fest Ale. Brewed once per year, usually as a collaboration between multiple breweries, this Northwest-Style Amber Ale is created to honor Bert Grant, a craft beer pioneer who opened the nation’s first post-Prohibition brewpub in Yakima back in 1981. The 2019 version of Bert’s was brewed at Anacortes Brewing with malt from Skagit Valley Malting and is dry-hopped with Simcoe hops.

This year, Herbert’s Legendary Cask Fest Ale will be the WABL beer, available only to members of Washington Beer Lovers (WABL), the official fan club of Washington beer. If you go to at least one festival per year, your annual membership pays for itself. It only cost $30 to join WABL and that includes a T-shirt, so the other benefits are just gravy. Read more about WABL here.

Ghostfish Brewing creates a beer to benefit marine wildlife

Washington Beer News - Wed, 03/06/2019 - 9:49am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

This Saturday, March 9th Ghostfish Brewing releases a special beer at its taproom in Seattle’s SoDo neighborhood. Killer Ale IPA was brewed to benefit a local marine mammal protection organization.

The beer and the partnership between the brewery and Orca Protection and Rescue (OPR) is the result of a chance encounter between one of the brewery owners and the captain of a whale watching boat.

“I met Captain Hobbes while I was a passenger on his whale watch tour boat last summer,” says Brian Thiel, co-owner of Ghostfish Brewing. “What I learned about the Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKW) that day from Captain Hobbes left me pondering what I could do to help improve their survival.”

Founded in 2018 by Captain Hobbes Buchanan, Orca Protection and Rescue is dedicated to the protection and rescue of all marine wildlife in the Salish Sea, by reducing private and commercial vessel harassment, assisting with strandings and entanglements, and ridding the waters of ghost fishing gear, marine debris, and plastics.

“Brian seemed like he really cared about the whales so I decided to approach him with this partnership idea,” says Captain Hobbes. “Who doesn’t love whales and ales? It just seemed like a match made in heaven and a great way to raise funds to help save these magnificent animals. Orca whales are looking like the canaries in the coal mine. If we don’t act now to save them, we humans are the next to go.”

Join Ghostfish Brewing and members of the OPR organization to celebrate this partnership and the release of Killer Ale IPA at an educational-themed launch party at the brewery’s taproom on March 9, from 2:00 until 5:00. On the day of the event, the brewery will donate $1.00 from any beer purchased at the taproom.

At the event, representatives of the OPR will speak on various topics pertinent to their organization’s mission as they relate to the Southern Resident Killer Whales (SRKW) population of the Salish Sea. The main topics include food, harassment, noise, and marine debris and plastics.

Killer Ale IPA will be available in limited 4-packs of 16-oz cans and on draft at the Ghostfish Brewery Taproom. Also at select retail locations throughout Washington. Ten percent of the proceeds from the sale of Killer Ale IPA benefits the OPR.

“With the Killer Ale IPA project, we’re hoping to inspire many others to make small positive steps to help our environment,” says Brian Thiel. “The Killer Ale IPA cans will be held together in a 4-pack carrier made of eco and animal-friendly, paper-based beverage board material from Fishbone Packaging. A small, yet important step for Ghostfish Brewing to be more environmentally responsible.”

The birth of a brewery marked by the triumphant return of a cow

Washington Beer News - Tue, 03/05/2019 - 2:48pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Two very important things are happening this week in West Seattle. First of all, the life-sized statue of a Polled Hereford is returning to the top of the building at the corner of 35th Ave. SW and SW Webster Street. Second, the brewery at that location opens this Friday. The full name is Best of Hands Brewery and Barrelhouse. Below we share some information about the brewery as well as the opening day beer lineup.

Nick Marianetti is one of the masterminds behind Best of Hands (pictured above on the left, along with his biz partner Gregory Marlor). He describes the brewery like this: “We will be a 21+ establishment (though if you’re only stopping in to fill a growler, you can bring your youngsters in with you)  We will offer some snacks, and hopefully some cheese and charcuterie plates will be available once we get open and gauge interest. Otherwise, we will allow outside food to be brought in, and we aim to host rotating food trucks in our front lot. Well behaved pets will be welcome on the patio, but only service animals will be allowed inside the taproom.”

“Lastly,” Nick adds,  “I’d like to put any fears to rest: the cow is definitely staying!”

Actually, the cow didn’t stay atop the building, as is evident in the cowless photo above. (See our previous story to learn more about the iconic cow.) As of Tuesday, March 5th, the cow has returned to the top of the building. The photo below was borrowed from the West Seattle Blog – Click here to see their coverage.

Best of Hands Brewery and Barrelhouse promises to focus on farmhouse-style beers and sour ales, but not to an extent that “regular beer drinkers” will feel unwelcome or unsatisfied.

Last night I attended a pre-opening event and found a whopping 12 beers of their own creation waiting for me on tap. (Beer menu is shown below.) Folks, you are in for a treat. Rarely have I visited a newly opened brewery where the beers were so refined. The beers taste like Best of Hands has been open, and kicking butt, for many months.

Among my favorites, the two “regular” saisons (pictured above): Dew of the Sea Rosemary Saison and Sad Guru Returns Saison. Also, the Thunderfunk Wine Barrel Aged Brett Saison. Away from the farmhouse, the Baltic Porter (pictured below) was especially satisfying—a too-rare beer style that ranks among my favorites.

On the normal side, I guarantee they’ll sell a lot of the Terror Hawk Pale Ale because it is so very quaffable and is so very tasty. (I envision many of those involved in many a session in my not-too-distant future.) Also, last night they were pouring two different IPAs.

I drank the first of the two IPAs, Phantom Boots IPA, a couple weeks ago when it showed up on tap at the Beer Junction (read it). The second IPA has a very interesting name: Another Douchy Overpriced Crappy Beer Served at a Hipster Hangout.

When this whole plan to open a new brewery in West Seattle was reported by the West Seattle Blog many months ago, a lot of people commented on the story. Among those comments, someone said, “Oh great, another douchy overpriced crappy beer served at a hipster hangout.”

To that, Nick Marianetti replied, “Thank you for naming our first beer!”

Food trucks are part of the plan at Best of Hands. For the grand opening this weekend: Falafel Salam on Friday, Buddha Bruddah on Saturday, Plum Bistro on Sunday.

Best of Hands is 21+
Hours:
3:00 to 10:00, Thursdays through Mondays.
Closed Tuesday and Wednesday.
