Peddler Brewing Company in Ballard is about to open its new beer garden. It’s huge and it looks beautiful. It opens softly this weekend and then there’s an official grand opening next weekend. Here’s the word straight from Peddler Brewwing.

Memorial Day weekend marks the start of Summer and we at Peddler are celebrating in a big way by opening our Beer Garden!  Sunshine + beer + food trucks + lawn games + bikes, yes we agree it’s a perfect combination.  Our beer garden is located right behind the brewery, can hold up to 400 people, and will have a back bar with our 4 most popular beers on tap.

salish-sea-brewing-2

The brewery first opened for business back in November of 2013. Everything at Salish Sea Brewing was chugging along just fine: good beers, nice crowds, friendly regulars, great location in downtown Edmonds, Washington. One problem, though. Not enough room. That’s changed. We last visited Salish Sea back in December. That’s when Jeff (owner, brewer) told…

Homefront IPA, a beer to support our soldiers

Homefront-IPA-1a

A long time ago, Fremont Brewing invited me to join them for a very special brew day with then-Mariners’ relief pitcher Chris Ray. A lifelong Mariners fan, I jumped at the opportunity to spend some time hanging around the brewhouse with a big-leaguer.  That was June of 2011 and the beer was the very first…

Standard Brewing Company of Seattle just announced expansion plans. They’re expanding the brewery, the taproom and the entire experience. There are two things I really like about this story.
