Tonight, The Beer Junction welcomes Garden Path Fermentation

Thu, 04/18/2019 - 7:56am

The folks from Garden Path Fermentation of Burlington, Washington visits The Beer Junction in West Seattle tonight (Thursday, April 18) and they’re bringing an assortment of beers (and a mead) for your tasting pleasure. In its year of existence, this brewery has quickly gained notoriety for its wild-fermented beers.

Garden Path Fermentation is a bit different. Unlike most breweries, the beers are fermented in a koelschip using their “native yeast culture cultivated from the air, flowers, and fruits of the Skagit Valley.” Everything they do is aged in oak barrels or oak foeders.

See what I mean? Even the words are different.

As much as possible, Garden Path uses ingredients sourced from the Skagit Valley. In addition to beer, they make mead and intend to eventually release some cider and wine. Thus, the word brewing does not appear in their name because the endeavor involves more than beer.

Ron and Amber, the owners of Garden Path Fermentation, previously worked at Jester King Brewery in Austin, Texas. That brewery is familiar to people who enthusiastically enjoy wild-fermented, mixed-culture, and sour beers. Ron and Amber are fonts of knowledge when it comes to this kind of beer, so don’t be afraid to ask questions like, “What’s a foeder (pronounced fooder)?” and “What’s a koelschip (pronounced coolship)?

Garden Path Fermentation Tasting Event
Thursday, April 18th (6-8PM)
(Try all five of the below from 6-8PM for just $5!)

1. THE PATIENT FISH THE SEA: Amber-colored barrel blend, inoculated with some of our funkier house yeast before bottle conditioning. (6.4%)

2. THE PRIME BARREL AGE:  A carefully curated blend of several different renditions of native yeast fermented, mature barrel-aged beer. (7.2%)

3. THE GARDEN PATHS LED TO FLOWERED: Hoppy blonde ale fermented in a foudre, blended with mature, barrel-aged beer, and dry hopped. (7.0%)

4. THE EASYGOING DRINK: Lightly tart and barnyardy, delicately hopped ale, fermented in a foudre, aged in oak and stainless.  (4.4%)

5. THE DRY TABLE MEAD: Dry, light, modest strength mead fermented in oak with our native yeast and Skagit fireweed honey from The Valley’s Buzz. (5.6%)

Help Lucky Envelope Brewing celebrate its fourth anniversary on April 27th

Wed, 04/17/2019 - 6:03pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Lucky Envelope Brewing is about to celebrate its fourth anniversary and they need your help. You see, as the name suggests, Lucky Envelope is all about cultural tradition. In particular, the Chinese tradition of the lucky envelope. Problem is, according to Chinese tradition the number four is unlucky. So, they need us all to help them usher in the next year of their existence by enjoying some great beer and wishing them good fortune.

Join them on Saturday, April 27th at the brewery’s taproom in Ballard as they release some special beers for the occasion. And that’s not all. The festivities begin at noon and continue into the night.

“This year’s Anniversary celebration has cultural significance,” says co-founder Raymond Kwan. “The number four in Chinese tradition is unlucky because the Chinese word for the number sounds similar to the word death. Like some Western practices of excluding the 13th floor, you may find the 4th floor missing from some buildings in Asia.”

Lucky Envelope is releasing an Anniversary Hazy IPA brewed with Medusa, Mosaic, and Comet hops. They’re also releasing small batches of past customer-favorites: Tea Smoked Helles Lager, Strawberry Milkshake IPA, and Cuke Nukem Cucumber Sour. Rounding out this year’s anniversary lineup are a Blackberry Sour and Strawberry & Rhubarb Golden Strong Ale.

“We decided to re-release our Cuke Nukem Cucumber Sour which we brewed with friend and homebrewer Blake Doepker as last year’s Pro-Am entry into the Washington Beer Awards, which won a silver medal,” says co-founder and Brewmaster Barry Chan. “As a brewer with homebrewing roots, I wanted to recognize the homebrewing community for being so amazing and supportive of Lucky Envelope.”

Lucky Envelope Brewing takes its name from the Chinese tradition – tied closely with New Year celebrations – of elders bestowing red-and-gold envelopes to loved ones as a gesture of luck and goodwill. They’ll be handing out red envelopes at that anniversary celebration on a first-come-first-served basis, so get there early and see what you get.

Keep an eye on the Facebook event page.

Hard to believe that Chainline Brewing has only been around for four years. They accomplished a lot in that time, for sure. This Saturday, April 20, the brewery celebrates its fourth anniversary with a party at the brewery and taproom in Kirkland. The festivities include the release of four barrel-aged beers along with swag giveaways, brewery tours, and victuals from Pecos Pit food truck.

Here is the announcement from the brewery, including information about the four beers:

We’re excited to celebrate our fourth birthday with you this coming Saturday, April 20. This past year we have been preparing a new and fun beer venture that will debut on Saturday called the Old Growth Barrel Series. We have barrel aged a traditional Saison in four different styles and will release these on draft and in bottles at our party. Additionally, we have a ton of beers that will make short visits to the taps including an extremely limited Barleywine, Double Cerne, our recent Steinbier, and the return of Flowtron IPA.

Old Growth Saison 1-4 is the first iteration of this new rotating barrel series from Chainline. These bright and delicate beers feature two different kinds of yeast and two different kinds of wine barrels. Saison One is our base Saison aged for a year in a clean red wine barrel. Saison Two is the base Saison aged
in a Grenache barrel. Saison Three is the base Saison aged in a red wine barrel and underwent secondary fermentation on Brettanoymyces Bruxellensis. Lastly, Saison Four is the base beer aged in a Grenache barrel with Brett Brux.

Measuring the economic impact of beer on Washington’s economy

Tue, 04/16/2019 - 1:08pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

The result of a recent report shows that the brewing industry contributed $1.4 billion to the state’s economy in 2017. The industry provided jobs for 6,300 people, directly. The report was conducted by Community Attributes Inc. and distributed by the Washington Beer Commission.

These are among the top-level highlights from the report. You can see, or download, the complete report below.

Size Matters

Depending on who you ask, California is the only state with more breweries than Washington. However, the vast majority of them are very small. Simply put, Washington is chock full of small breweries. Nearly 90 percent of the state’s breweries produced 2,000 barrels or less in 2017.

  • The majority of breweries are small, with two-thirds of active breweries producing fewer than 500 barrels (or 1,000 kegs) in 2017.
  • Slightly more than half of all net production came from the eight largest breweries in the state.
  • More than one-third of net production came from the four largest breweries in 2017 (Elysian Brewing, Georgetown Brewing, Fremont Brewing, and Mac’s Brewing).
  • Statewide, only 30 breweries produced at least 2,000 barrels in 2017.
  • Roughly one-fifth of Washington’s breweries produced between 500 and 2,000 barrels.
  • More than one-third of Washington’s breweries produced less than 500 barrels.

Growth Continues

Like the nation overall, the number of breweries in Washington has grown substantially in recent years. Much of this growth occurred over the past 10 years. In the autumn of 2018, there were 391 breweries operating in Washington. Today there are over 400.

The growth numbers in terms of production volume have also trended upwards, as you would expect.

As you can see in the chart above, the overall trend was upward, with a dip in 2017 because Redhook moved its production from Woodinville to Portland, Oregon. Otherwise, as Redhook’s number dropped, overall production increased. Likely, in 2019 the trend will continue.

Industry growth can also be measured in jobs. As the chart below shows, the industry added almost 5,000 jobs since 2005, even during the economic downturn ten years ago.

Type of Sales

The report also showed an interesting trend in how breweries are selling beer. Apparently, in the last few years, pint and growler sales are on the rise as keg sales and packaged product sales decline. I presume this is related to the increasing popularity of brewery taprooms.

The Whole Enchilada

Here is the complete report. You can view, or download, the 24-page report in PDF format.

Fourth Annual Beer and Gear Sale Kicks Off Two Beers Brewing Co Fundraising for Washington’s National Park Fund!

Staff from Two Beers Brewing Co, Seattle Cider Company, and Sound Craft Seltzer aim to raise $20,000 for WNPF Climb for a Cause, and summit Mount Rainier.

SEATTLE (April 16, 2019) – Beginning their partnership in 2016, Two Beers Brewing has been raising funds for the Washington National Parks Fund (WNPF) through sales of their flagship brew, Wonderland Trail IPA, and a series of fundraising events.

In 2018 Two Beers raised $25,000 for WNPF, surpassing their $20,000 goal, and sent a team of eight to summit Mount Rainier with the help of International Mountain Guides (IMG). The fourth annual Beer and Gear Sale, benefiting the WNPF Climb for a Cause team, takes place at The Woods Tasting Room in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle (4660 Ohio Ave S) on Saturday, April 20 from 10AM- 1PM.

“We’re overwhelmed by the continued generosity of donations to this event,” said Caity Rock, Digital Marketing Coordinator and event organizer.

On summit day in 2018, due to dangerous avalanche conditions, the Two Beers Climb for a Cause team watched the sunrise from Disappointment Cleaver, 12,300 ft elevation and only 2,000 ft shy of the summit.

Hungry for a summit this year, Two Beers’ Climb Team Captain, Kristen Oliphant calls her journey “the greatest physical and mental challenge I could endure. I am honored to be a part of such a wonderful cause as my team and I raise awareness to keep our beautiful National Parks protected.”

With four veteran climbers from 2018 and four new climbers, the team comprised of staff from Two Beers, Seattle Cider, and Sound Craft Seltzer are eager to prove both their fundraising and climbing prowess.

“Two Beers Brewing gets us.” says Laurie Ward, Executive Director for Washington’s National Park Fund. “They share our passion and concern for Mount Rainier, North Cascades and Olympic National Parks and now more than ever have a special affinity for Mount Rainier National Park. They work as hard as we
do raising funds for these parks. They attend our events as we do theirs. We love partnering with Two Beers and Seattle Cider.”

Tacoma’s E9 Brewing announces opening date for new brewery and taproom

Mon, 04/15/2019 - 8:43am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

As we reported in January, Tacoma’s Engine House No. 9 Brewery and Restaurant is opening a new location in the city’s historic brewery district. Today the company announced that it has set a date for the opening, May 1st, 2019. The location is 2506 Fawcett Avenue, not far from 7 Seas Brewing and Black Fleet Brewing.

“The new facility will house a larger brew system, increased barrel storage, larger fermentation tanks and for the first time, a taproom separate from the Historic Engine House No. 9 Restaurant located in the 6th Avenue Business District,” said the company in a press release. “The taproom has floor to ceiling windows looking out into the brewing area. A viewing area resides near the barrel storage and for days that weather permits, guests can enjoy a fenced courtyard for outdoor seating.”

The 12 taps will focus on E9 Brewing’s award-winning farmhouse and wild ales, along with hop-forward pale ales and IPA’s. Also, all-new creations brewed on the new 15-barrel brewing system. They’ll offer growlers and bottles to-go, as well as rare bottles for in-house consumption. They are also adding a canning line and will eventually offer 4-packs of 16-ounce cans, available at the taproom as well as select retailers in Western Washington. Also look for new branding: new labels, merchandise and so on.

The food menu will not be as complete as the menu at the original Engine House No. 9 location but will include locally sourced cheeses and charcuterie, as well as some small snacks and sandwiches. There is also room in the courtyard to bring in food vendors on occasion.

The taproom will be 21-and-over only. Initially, it will be open Wednesday thru Sunday.

Time to celebrate Earth Week at the Latona Pub

Fri, 04/12/2019 - 3:02pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

Keg walking begins tomorrow! It’s an annual tradition at Latona Pub in Seattle’s Green Lake neighborhood. To celebrate Earth Day, or Earth Week, kegs are delivered to the pub by non-motorized means. And of course, there’s a party too.

“The goal of our celebration is to raise awareness of our environment, both urban and natural,” says the pub in a press release. “By remembering how our actions affect the planet, we set out to help some fantastic organizations that work on environmental issues, and remind ourselves what we can individually do to protect our cherished resources.”

Bikes, boats, hand trucks, and any other way you can move a keg without burning fossil fuels. Part of the weeklong celebration includes a series of keg walks that sees people hand-trucking kegs across the city. The first keg walk is scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday, April 13th. (more info below.)

The celebration crescendos next Saturday, April 20th with a party at Latona Pub to benefit Brewshed Alliance, a local environmental protection organization focused on the relationship between healthy water sources and good beer. More information about all of this can be found below in the press release.

 

PRESS RELEASE

We here at the Latona Pub have been celebrating Earth Day with a variety of keg walking and sponsorship events for the last 10 years. The goal of our celebration is to raise awareness of our environment, both urban and natural. By remembering how our actions affect the planet, we set out to help some fantastic organizations that work on environmental issues, and remind ourselves what we can individually do to protect our cherished resources.

The core of our celebration is delivering beer to the Latona by non-motorized, emission-free means. We live in a unique place where world class beer is merely a walk, sail, or cycle trip away from a plethora of diverse and innovative breweries. For a full week, our entire tap list comes from these non-motorized deliveries—the longest trek this year will be from Rogue Issaquah, as organized by one of our pub regulars, Miles Boucher.

To locally demonstrate an alternative to fossil fuel delivery, we will also walk multiple kegs via hand truck from south Seattle, Greenwood, Magnolia, Fremont, Ballard, Northgate, the U-District, and Lake City. This year, our walks begin on the 13th from Georgetown, followed by a walk on the 14th from Greenwood. On Monday the 15th, we’ll be walking from the U-District, where this tradition began 10 years ago.

Wednesday, the 17th, we’ll be touring the Ballard brew scene with the Highball String Band fiddling along the route, in a walk supported by Feet First, an organization dedicated to improving the urban walking experience in Seattle. We’ll be hosting our annual benefit for them at the Latona the same night at 7pm, with live music and a live auction.

Finally, we’ll roll through Lake City on the 19th for our final trek to the Latona.

On Saturday, April 20th at 7pm, we’ll be throwing an Earth Day celebration benefitting our friends at the Brewshed Alliance, who work tirelessly to protect the watersheds that are essential to producing the wonderful beer we drink. Then, on Monday, April 22nd at 7pm, we’ll be hosting the Northwest Bee Association, the Snohomish Bee Company, and Save Our Wild Salmon for an educational night about bee conservation, with musician Andy Coe taking the stage at 6:30pm.

Our Earth Week keg walks have even spread to Tacoma, where our friends at the Edison City Alehouse will be organizing non-motorized deliveries of their own and will also be holding an event benefitting ForeverGreen Trails on Saturday the 20th.

The Latona strives to be a place not only to discuss the future of the planet, but also to foster a discussion about the steps we can all take to affect change. We welcome you to join us during the week to celebrate our planet and highlight these important issues.

Beer Release – Svelty 12 (degrees) Pilsner, Aslan Brewing

Fri, 04/12/2019 - 2:16pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

New brew from Aslan Brewing. Svelty 12° is described as a Czech-Style Pilsner. Here’s the release notice.

Svetly 12° (Czech Style Pilsner)

4.8% ABV // 8 IBU // 12 P
medium body + floral + balanced

In the Czech Republic golden lager is not called Pilsner, unless it’s THE Pilsner. That being Pilsner Urquell. All others are referred to as Svetly Lezak (say it: SaVET-lee LEH-jhack) with a number 10-12 telling you how strong the beer is. The rest of the world has done a fine job of diluting the word “Pilsner”, or Pilsener if it’s German. But this beer won’t be doing that. A recent trip to the Czech and a lengthy conversation with the Brewmaster of Pilsner Urquell – who was kind enough to instill the knowledge needed to make authentic Svetly Lezak – led to the inspiration of this beer. This beer follows ALL regulations set forth in the German Purity Law (of 1927) and is authentically brewed to the exact standards of real Czech lager. The mash consisted of a single heirloom variety of Moravian malt (no caramel malt), was triple decocted, and zero modifications were made to the brewing water. We used only Saaz hops at a rate of 1.5 lbs per barrel of wort in the kettle. Fermentation was carried out from 5° C up to 8° C for 8 days, then the beer was transferred into its lagering tank at cellar temperatures where it rested for a full 90 days. There is specifically and very intentionally a small amount of diacetyl present in this beer. This is a result due to the strict adherence to Czech lager brewing. There are quite literally only four ingredients in this beer, Moravian malt, Saaz hops, water, and yeast. Now that we dropped a small history lesson, sit back and enjoy a most authentic golden lager – Na Zdraví!

In order to make an authentic Czech Pilsner, one must use authentic Czech ingredients. For us, this meant sourcing malt and hops grown in the Czech Republic. Though we are able to source organic Czech Saaz Hops, there is no Czech malt grown that is certified organic, making this beer our first beer brewed without the USDA Certified Organic seal of approval. We stand by this beer with pride, knowing we are respecting tradition, not to mention the Czech standards in agriculture go above and beyond what we are used to in the States.

Hops: Saaz
Malt: Moravian Pilsner

* Available now at the Aslan Brewpub and Aslan Depot

The story behind Solared Out IPA from Hellbent Brewing

Fri, 04/12/2019 - 1:51pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

This weekend, Hellbent Brewing releases Solared Out IPA. The fact that they’re releasing the beer in time for Earth Day (April 22nd) is no accident.

If you’ve visited Hellbent Brewing you’re probably familiar with Steven, the big and affable yellow labrador retriever that calls the brewery home. Also, you’re probably familiar with the couches, the game room, the patio, and so on, but what you may not have noticed at Hellbent Brewing is the solar array on the rooftop. According to the Seattle Office of Economic Development, Hellbent has the largest solar energy system of any brewery in the state, generating about 30 percent of its own energy.

Photo from Instagram.

“At Hellbent Brewing Company we value the environment and feel lucky to be based in the Pacific Northwest,” says Randy Embermate of Hellbent Brewing. “Utilizing as much clean energy as we can is one way we choose to give back to this region we call home. Releasing the weekend before Earth Day, we dedicate this beer to our solar panels.”

Solared Out IPA is described as a west coast style IPA that focuses on the citrus and tropical fruity aromas from the hops. It clocks in at 6.8 percent ABV and 48 IBU. Brewed with a simple recipe of pale malt, rolled oats and malted white wheat giving it the hazy character and mellow malt background then adding, El Dorado, Azacca, Mosaic and Simcoe hops in the whirlpool and then finishing with a dry hopping of Citra, Azacca, Simcoe, Mosaic, and Amarillo.

New beers and other news from Pike Brewing

Thu, 04/11/2019 - 1:14pm

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

We’ve got some news to share from Pike Brewing Company. The highlights include two new brews, a shakeup in the kitchen, and an opportunity for you to get a deal on some tasty grub.

Here’s the news straight from the brewery:

Upcoming Beer Releases

Pike Bitter Lake IPA is now available on draft and in 12oz cans. Featuring whole leaf Centennial and dry-hopped with Ekuanot and Cascade, Pike Bitter Lake IPA offers notes of mandarin, lime, dark berry, and pine with a lingering finish. A light malt base allows the hops to shine.

Pike Morning After Pale will be available on draft and in 12oz cans in May. Brewed yearly by the women of Pike Brewing Company, Pike Morning After Pale has a light and creamy malt base and refreshing, bright hop character from whole leaf Citra hops. Pike Morning After Pale celebrates women’s current and historic roles in craft beer and benefits our friends at Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and Hawaiian Islands.

Chef Rhys Takes Up Chef Gabe’s Mantle at Tankard & Tun

Chef Rhys Nunnelee takes up Chef Gabe Spiel’s mantle at Pike Brewing Company’s oyster bar and seafood-focused restaurant, Tankard & Tun. Spiel, praised for his focus on local sourcing, is leaving the company. Nunnelee, a rising star in Seattle’s dining scene and former Sous Chef at Tankard & Tun, will be taking his place.

“Promoting from within is an important part of our philosophy at Pike. We work hard to identify and support talented folks so that they can grow here,” says Pike President Drew Gillespie, “Chef Gabe was an example of this—he worked at Pike for fourteen of the last twenty years—starting at The Pike Pub the same year I did, both of us working the line while we were in culinary school. And so is Rhys—having joined our team as Sous Chef at Tankard & Tun, Rhys began overseeing Tankard’s private party dining soon after, and now he’s ready to step up as Head Chef, and we’re ready to support him.”

Likewise, Gillespie shared his support of Spiel’s transition saying, “Pike is proud to have worked with Chef Gabe and grateful for his help opening Tankard & Tun. We wish him well as he moves forward.”

After graduating from culinary school, Chef Rhys spent time cooking in Alaska before landing in Seattle at The Butcher’s Table. From there, he joined the Tankard & Tun team. “I wanted to focus on local seafood—highlighting all the Puget Sound has to offer,” says Chef Rhys. He’s looking forward to refining a menu that showcases fan favorites like Tankard & Tun’s Pike Place Ale-battered fish & chips and seafood chowder, while pushing the menu forward to capture the hearts of more diners— “We’ve got some fun plans for engaging more market visitors and locals alike.”

Seattle Restaurant Week at Tankard & Tun

Seattle Restaurant Week at Tankard & Tun is in full swing! Guests can experience three courses for $35 at dinner, or a two-course lunch of just $20.

Leavenworth Ale Fest this Saturday, April 13th

Tue, 04/09/2019 - 10:09am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

The 13th Annual Leavenworth Ale Fest takes place at the Leavenworth Festhalle on Saturday, April 13, 2019. Among the breweries involved, some that are not familiar to us westsiders, like Whipsaw Brewing, Single Hill Brewing, Burwood Brewing, and others. (Complete list of breweries is below.)

Same great event, but with a new beneficiary and a plan to make the festival bigger and better. The Leavenworth Ale Fest will now raise funds to support the arts across North-Central Washington. Leavenworth’s Icicle Creek Center for the Arts has officially taken the reins for the event. After an official application process, the Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, which founded the event in 2007, chose Icicle Creek to take over the event.

“We’re grateful to be assuming responsibility for this festival and will work hard to turn it into an
important annual fundraiser in support of the arts and arts education across North Central
Washington,” said Jamie Howell, Icicle Creek’s Development Director,  who is also serving as the
new festival director.

Icicle Creek is undertaking a full rebranding of the event, has launched a new website (leavenworthalefest.com), and is making a series of updates to the event itself. The changes include:

  • More breweries: The 2019 Leavenworth Ale Fest will feature no fewer than 40 breweries, up from the 24 participating breweries in recent years.
  • Single day event: The event will run one day only this year – Sat., April 13 – from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., with VIP tickets allowing early access at 5:30.
  • Make Ale for the Arts Home Brew Competition: A new competition for home brewers has been added to the event with BJCP-certified judges.
  • The event will continue to feature live music, beer tastings (and ciders), and brewery awards, as
    well as continuing to take place at the Leavenworth Festhalle.

A portion of the event proceeds remain earmarked to support The Leavenworth Nutcracker Museum, but the primary beneficiary will now be Icicle Creek Center for the Arts. Founded in 1995 by Harriet Bullitt and the late Wilfred Woods, Icicle Creek, located on a 13-acre campus three miles outside of Leavenworth, provides arts education to more than 6,000 students around North-Central Washington each year. It offers a full performance season that draws more than 10,000 audience members annually.

Wingman Brewers celebrates anniversary with a super-collaboration beer

Tue, 04/09/2019 - 9:39am

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

What is a super-collaboration beer? Well, it’s how  Wingman Brewers of Tacoma decided to commemorate its  8th anniversary. The brewery teamed up with seven local breweries and one local malting company to create an eight-brewery collaboration beer: Fortune Teller IPA. (See the beer stats below.)

They’ll tap into the brew on Saturday, April 20th at the anniversary celebration at the Wingman Brewers taproom. “We’re super excited to be celebrating 8 years of business and so very thankful for all those who have supported our little brewery since its inception in 2011,” says Ken Thoburn of Wingman Brewers.

“The beer is called Fortune Teller because we used paper fortune tellers to pick out the ingredients,” says Thoburn. “With so many brewers involved, we figured to avoid a ‘too many cooks in the kitchen’ type scenario we would just leave the deciding of ingredients up to chance. After sourcing the ingredients locally (All Washington State), as a group on the brew day we decided how much of what ingredients to put in the recipe to make a deliciously special beer.”

The breweries involved in the project include 7 Seas Brewing, Pacific Brewing & Malting Brewing, North 47 Brewing, Top Rung Brewing, Three Magnets Brewing, Brothers Cascadia Brewing, and Airways Brewing. Most locally sourced barley came from Skagit Valley Malting in Burlington.

Saturday, April 20th
Noon-Midnight

Sirius Wood Fired Pizza will be at the Anniversary celebration serving up hot pizza pies.
There is no entry fee and if you buy a beer you’ll get a commemorative glass.

Fortune Teller Collaboration IPA stats:
7% ABV
Skagit Valley Malts
Yakima sourced Mosaic, Simcoe, and Amarillo hops

How does Washington stack up on Untappd?

Mon, 04/08/2019 - 2:19pm

By Kendall Jones, Washington Beer Blog

Facebook Twitter Reddit Google+

 

What do Floodlands Brewing, Holy Mountain Brewing, and Fremont Brewing have in common? Well, besides the obvious, those are the three top-rated breweries in Washington according to Untappd. But how do Washington’s breweries and beers stack up against the rest of the nation?

As promised in a previous post, below I share some data analysis of beer ratings on Untappd as related to Washington breweries and Washington beer. This info was provided by Derek Gaughan of Brewfuse. He originally contacted me with some overall analysis of data from Untappd, but I was more interested in how it applied to Washington since that tends to be the focus here on the Washington Beer Blog. More specifically, I was curious about how Washington breweries and beers ranked against those from all the other states. Also, how do they stack up against each other?

“Overall I looked at ~1,800 US breweries that had a beer listed as one of Untappd’s top 50 beers in any category (that dataset had over 9,000 beers),” said Gaughan. “So overall the sample used could be considered a sample of the top rated breweries, definitely not a complete list.”

Do you understand? Read it again slowly. “Breweries that had a beer listed as one of Untappd’s top 50 in any category.” Not every brewery in the nation, but breweries with some kind of beer in the top 50 of some category. In a nation with over 7,000 breweries, I guess you could say these are notable breweries.

The first chart shows the average brewery rating grouped by state. Gaughan filtered out states with less than 20 breweries because many of them had so few that it didn’t make sense to compare with other states. As you can see, our Washington’s breweries rate right about in the middle. Note that the range of scores is very tight, with Vermont leading the way at 3.87, down to Wisconsin at 3.71, suggesting that there is good beer everywhere according to Untappd ratings.

The next chart shows how many breweries from each state appeared in Gaughan’s sample of ~1,800 breweries (Washington had 62, tied with Minnesota). It’s not surprising that California had so many breweries appear here: that state has the most breweries overall, by a long shot.

The bar chart below shows the number of breweries in each city for Washington. That is, Washington has 62 breweries in the dataset and this is where they’re located.  As expected, Seattle led the way with 17 breweries. Woodinville, Vancouver, and Bellingham followed, respectively.

I want to make it clear that we are talking about a select group of breweries: only those breweries with beers rated on Untappd. Below, the list of Washington’s 62 breweries, including the brewery name, city, and Untappd rating. Note that there are some anomalies. The list includes cider producers, for instance. Also, the list includes at least one brewery that no longer exists.
