Bellingham’s Boundary Bay Brewery was just named Best Small Business of the Year by the Bellingham/Whatcom County Chamber of Commerce. The award comes on the heels of the announcement earlier this month that Boundary Bay was named Best Brewery in Washington by the readers of Northwest Brewing News.
Here is the official word from Boundary Bay Brewing:
Big news for our little brewery! We were named the 2009 Small Business of The Year by the Bellingham/Whatcom County Chamber of Commerce last night. And, earlier in December, we were awarded Best Brewery in Washington State by the Readers Choice Awards in the Northwest Brewing News Publication.
These particular awards matter a great deal to us because they represent what the people who support our business think of what we do. We have been fortunate to win many beer awards and each of those medals signal a triumph in the craft beer community. But the awards we’ve received this month, reflect our connection to our community of customers, neighbors, friends and fans who make it possible for us to keep doing what we do.
We have always tried to make strong connections with our customers and our community…in the hopes of making Bellingham as a whole a stronger community. These awards make us feel like we’ve succeeded in doing just that. Thank you, from all of us here at Boundary Bay Brewery. And cheers!
