A Second KingCo Brewery Gets Organic Certification

In July 2008, Elliott Bay Brewhouse and Pub in Burien became King County’s first brewery to gain organic certification. On February 2, 2009, Elliott Bay Brewery and Pub in West Seattle became the second brewery in King County to be awarded organic certification by the WSDA (as an agent of the FDA). Elliott Bay has been brewing with organic grain for a number of years but recently decided to seek certification for their year-round house beers and a handful of their seasonal recipes. To determine which of the current draught selections are certified organic, West Seattle pubsters should look to the board above the bar or to the tap handles for the USDA label. You can also just ask your dedicated and friendly server. Last summer the Seattle Times published a nice article about Elliott Bay going organic – click here to read it.
