Yet another Washington brewery is in the works

Yesterday we reported that a new brewery is being built in Leavenworth. Today, it’s Bothell. Foggy Noggin Brewery is set to open, hopefully, in the next couple of months. They will be a “nano brewery,” producing beer on a ½ BBL system – one keg at a time. Here is the message we received from Jim Jamison, Foggy Noggin’s chief, cook and bottle washer.

We had our inspection today (10/26/09) from the Washington State Liquor Board and were approved.  They will begin processing our microbrewery license this week.  This is nearly our last hurdle, as we earlier received our Federal brewing permit in July.  Last hurdle is to get our Snohomish County Certificate of Occupancy. Hope we can get this in a couple of weeks and get our first brewing session in November.  Grand opening will be either in December or January.

What is Foggy Noggin Brewing?  We are brewers of great English Styled Ales on a very small 1/2 BBL system.  We will soon be one of the world’s smallest production breweries.  We take great pride in every batch to bring you consistent high quality brews year-round.  While we get up and running, you will only be able to get our fresh beers at our tasting room, located at our brewery in Bothell, WA.

We will begin with our two (2) flagship beers – Bit O’Beaver (English Bitter) and Christmas Duck (Robust Porter).  More beers are planned to be introduced as we grow.

The Web site is live, although currently limited we plan to make this a unique experience you will want to bookmark and visit often.  You can follow us on twitter  Here you will get updates on the brewery modifications and brew sessions.

Spread the word and let your friends know about Foggy Noggin Brewing. To get future updates like this, have your friends send me an e-mail requesting to get on the Noggin News distribution.

  1. Wo bist du, meine FogNog freunde?

    Or for those who don’t speak pidgeon Deutche, do we have an address for this here brewery? Bothell’s a big place. Hopefully downtown, though Snohomish County Certificate makes me think not.
