Interesting article reviewing major happenings and events of 2009, with regards to beer of course.

Washington Beer Blog

A big story from 2009 involves the sheer number of breweries that opened, are poised to open, or are now in the works. It has been hard to keep track of them all, but we list them below in no particular order.

Fremont Brewing (Open in Seattle)


Pillagers (Open in Seattle)


Black Raven (Open in Redmond)


Odin Brewing (Seattle, unclear, but we’ve seen their beer out there)


7 Seas (Open in Gig Harbor)


MT Head Brewing (Open in Graham)


Foggy Noggin (Very near opening in Bothell)


Airways (Very near opening in Kent)


Palouse Falls (Open in Pullman)


Icicle Brewing Company (Planned in Leavenworth)


Grove Street (Open in Shelton)


Riverport (Opened in Clarkston in 2008, but took a while for the news to reach the coast)


Golden Hills Brewing Company (Open in Airway Heights)


Just last week we told you about four other brewing companies that were issued liquor licenses, though we have few details about any of those. (read it)

First test batch of Foggy Noggin!


Getting ready to fire up the kettles for the first test batch of Bit O'Beaver.  Huge ceremonial gala, everyone is here - Matthew, Stephanie and Nicky.  Good thing we added the rail on the stairs so there are no injuries today.
