I suppose you could say we share a birthday. In October 2008, this blog posted a story about the grand opening of Naked City Brewery and Taphouse. Today we share news of the Naked City 9th anniversary celebration.
That post was one of the very first posts on the Washington Beer Blog. Actually, that post is number 12 out of 4,196 posts we’ve done over the course of the last nine years. I can only imagine how many pints they’ve poured at Naked City since that day in October of 2008.
Sometimes 2008 doesn’t seem like it was so long ago. But, alas, it was. George W. Bush was the President of the United State. Comparatively, it was an innocent time. Although the realities of the global economic crisis were sinking in, we had hope. Remember hope? It was a simple time. Google was still just a noun and had not yet achieved verb status. Smart phones were new and iPhones were very new. Most people had not yet heard of Twitter. There were only 1,500 breweries in America (now 5,300+). There were only about 100 breweries in Washington (now 350+) and the newest one was Naked City.
On Saturday, October 14th Naked City Brewing celebrates the opening of the brewery and taphouse in Seattle.
Here’s the announcement from Naked City with all the details:
