UPDATE, MARCH 8TH – Whiskey Ridge announced that the grand opening has been delayed. Stay tuned for further details, but no firm date for the grand opening has been announced yet.
Here’s some Washington state trivia for you. The town of Darrington was actually called Barrington. In the 1890s, not long after the town’s founders decided on that name, the US Postal Service screwed up and officially called it Darrington. The residents of Barrington apparently decided to go with it. The town has been called Darrington ever since.
Fast-forward about 115 years and you find the people of Darrington preparing to celebrate the opening of their very own brewery. Whiskey Ridge Brewing is slated to open in the shadows of majestic Whitehorse Mountain on Saturday, March 15 at 11:00 a.m. We first learned about the plan back in 2012 (see our original post). The brewery will be located in the Old City Hall building at 650 S. Emens, Darrington WA 98241 (MAP). Find Whiskey Ridge Brewing on Facebook.
Here is the press release from Whiskey Creek Brewing.

In the future, two of these taps will be rotated with other local brewery offerings.
Who knew that a Christmas gift nearly 10 years ago, would grow out of its garage phase and into a business adventure? Jack Hatley received that gift from his wife and business partner, Francine, as an ideal hobby. Discovering that he had a knack for making great tasting beer, Jack realized he could make this hobby his dream career. So, with the support of his wife and sons, Jack and Francine started Whiskey Ridge Brewing Company.
