It’s been a long time coming, but at last Holy Mountain Brewing finds itself ready to begin distributing beer. Seattle’s newest brewery plans to introduce itself with a kickoff event at the Pine Box on Tuesday, October 14th at 6:00 pm.

The wait is something that Holy Mountain thinks you should appreciate. In fact, that is part of the philosophy at Holy Mountain: they intend to rush nothing to market. Instead, they’ll lend much of their attention to carefully aged beers and apply slightly less focus to ready-to-drink ales, though they plan to make those too.

Pliny the Elder – Production Moving to Paso Robles

This is not an announcement that Russian River Brewing is increasing production of Pliny the Elder. Nor is it an announcement about some kind of merger.
