This Saturday, December 29th, Latona Pub welcomes the crew from North Fork Brewery to Seattle for a rare brewer’s night event. Simply put, The North Fork has been one of my favorite Washington breweries for a very long time. It’s one of those truly great, off-the-beaten-path breweries with which many of you are probably unfamiliar.
The North Fork Brewery, Pizzeria, Beer Shrine and Wedding Chapel celebrated its 21st birthday yesterday. Located on Mount Baker Highway, about 20 miles east of Bellingham, it’s a bit off the beaten path, which is one of my favorite things about it. I cannot remember how long ago it was that I first visited The North Fork, but I do recall loving their ESB. Remember ESB? The pizza is outstanding, seriously outstanding, and I’ve always been impressed with their salads as well. Add to all of that, it’s in eastern Whatcom County on your way up the mountain, where year-round outdoor recreation awaits.
Over the last several year, The North Fork has earned a reputation for more adventurous beers, especially barrel-aged and sour beers. A lot has changed, and a lot has not. That’s the way I like it.
Anyway, here’s the info about Saturday’s event a Latona Pub, which starts at 6:00.
“If you’ve never been to North Fork Brewery (and Pizzeria, and Beer Shrine, and Wedding Chapel), here’s your chance to try some brewer Eric Jorgensen’s incredible beers—including our collaboration chocolate mint porter. If you HAVE been there, then you know how much love and dedication Eric puts into his beer (and that the pizza is the closest you’ll find to NYC pizza in Washington.)”
“Come enjoy some truly unique beers from one of Washington’s most truly unique breweries on tap for the evening.”
