Foggy Noggin Brewing's - Our First Year
The video above is footage of our humble, but very proud, moment when we cut the ribbon and opened our tasting room to the public.
Our next challenge was to brew enough beer to attend the Washington Brewers Festival, over Father's Day weekend. We brewed all we could and took our 2 flag-ship beers (Bit O'Beaver and Christmas Duck) along with our Friday only beer (Kastrated Dawg) to this event. Again, we were amazed at the interest and attention to Foggy Noggin. We were shocked to learn that we served the 4th most amount of beer during the weekend. WOW!
We added three additional fermenters and started getting tap accounts. Foggy Noggin has had our beer on tap at 20 locations to date, and still growing. Invites to attend Brewers Events started coming in and we attended terrific turn-outs at: Malt & Vine (Redmond), Beveridge Place Pub (West Seattle), The Beer Authority (Lake City), The Green Frog (Bellingham), Diamond Knot (Mukilteo), Balefire (Everett). More are planned in our 2nd year already.
