Boundary Bay Brewery is about to celebrate its 15th anniversary. The party takes place on Thursday, September 16th at the pub in Bellingham. Over the past 15 years Boundary Bay has won prestigious awards and earned a reputation as one of the region’s outstanding craft breweries; what’s more, they have won the hearts of the community they serve.
Great people making great beer
Beyond making great beer and having a fantastic restaurant and pub, Boundary Bay is a beloved fixture in Bellingham. More than just a local business, Boundary Bay Brewery is an important part of the community. I have friends who live in Bellingham and I can attest to the fact that their affection for Boundary Bay goes beyond the beer. Bellingham is a great community: a city with more than 80,000 people that feels like a small town. Boundary Bay Brewery is one of the things that makes Bellingham great.
Cheers to Boundary Bay Brewery, and cheers to many, many more years!
From their website:
Please join Boundary Bay Brewery in celebrating our 15th anniversary on September 16th, 2010!
15 years ago we found a home in the heart of downtown Bellingham. We opened our doors on September 16th, 1995 in a restored, historic warehouse right across the street from the Saturday Farmers Market. From the beginning we knew that we wanted to make the kinds of beers that we liked to drink: big, bold Northwest brews. Early on, our handcrafted ales began gaining recognition and we quickly became a place where the locals love to go.
We started with just six beers on tap, mostly English-style ales like ESB and Scotch Ale. Over the years, we’ve expanded our brewing and now feature 7 beers permanently on tap, 3 rotating seasonal taps and 2 ales always on cask. Throughout the year, we feature over 25 seasonal varieties, ranging from classics like our IPA to the cult favorites like our Cabin Fever and Imperial IPA.
Our logo has become a familiar sight on the Boundary Bay Brewery clothing that people seem to spot everywhere. Historically, it references the bootlegging in Boundary Bay from British Columbia to Washington that was common during Prohibition.
Now, though, it means so much more to us. We’ve updated our logo to reflect the last 15 years of saving the ales…and you can expect new coasters, t-shirts, hoodies, pint glasses and growlers. All emblazoned with our 15th anniversary design!
Come to the Beer Garden at 4pm for a Happy Hour BBQ, dancing and live music by the Marion Weston band. Enjoy $1 off your pints, anniversary cake and the special 15th Anniversary Ale which will be tapped at 4pm!
Our anniversary celebration, hosted by Robert Sarazin Blake, is free, family friendly, and open to the public.
We also want to show special appreciation to our accounts, regulars and people that have made major contributions to our business along the way, so there will be a VIP section of the party that will be by invite only.
For 15 years, we have been handcrafting each batch of our beer and we are proud to be doing our part to preserve and expand the art of craft beer.
Boundary Bay Brewery has been saving the ales since 1995 and we just want to thank you for being a part of our craft beer community.
