Brewers Garage Sale Extraordinaire – Sunday & Monday

submit to reddit

Jeff Smiley is now the former-owner of Baron Brewing and Three Skulls Ales. After years in the local beer industry, including a stint as the President of the Washington Brewers Guild, Jeff has moved on to the world of distilled spirits. That’s right, these days he’s making whiskey. That said, he’s having a two-day garage sale at Baron Brewing in South Park (this Sunday and Monday) and everything must go.

Whether you’re a pro brewer or a home brewer, this might be worth your time. Kegs of all sizes and types, CO2 bottles and regulators, jockey boxes, whiskey barrels, a ton of miscellaneous tap parts, and a lot more. All on sale at the brewery. The taproom will also be open for the last time, before the bar and the rest of it gets sold.

Sunday September 30th from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm

Monday Oct 1st from 9:00 am to 5:00pm

In addition to a bunch of malt and hops that need to go, the list of For Sale items includes:

  • Kegs of every size and type¬† (most for $15 each)
  • Jockey boxes
  • CO2 tanks
  • CO2 Regulators
  • Tubing
  • Beer engines
  • Whiskey barrels
  • Tap parts of all kinds
  • The taproom bar
  • Tap towers
  • Home brew refrigerators
  • Beer signs
  • Glassware
  • Swing-top homebrew bottles
  • And what-all else

    Payment methods accepted? Cash only? Card?

    In his email he stated he would be able to accept a CC if he must but I got the feeling cash was preferred. Bring cash, things will be flying out the door and cash is just easier but that is my opinion.

    Any idea of the quantity on these items? I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth the drive up from Tacoma.

    Any idea how will this effect Pillagers Pub in Greenwood?

    Regarding the malt –

    What unit quantities are you selling?
    What’s the price per unit or lbs?

    As a home brewer, I wouldn’t bother buying hundreds of lbs. of grain, unless the price was ridiculously good.

    This is sad news, but perhaps a good opportunity for us hobbyists.

    Sean, understand that I am not selling anything so I cannot answer that question. Like any garage sale you’ll just have to go see what they have.

    Sad for us, perhaps. Understand that Jeff is very happily making whiskey these days. He refers to it as “like making beer on steroids.”
