Foggy Noggin Anniversary Ale at Foggy Noggin Brewery & Taproom


  • Foggy Noggin Brewery & Taproom 22329 53rd Avenue Southeast Bothell, WA, 98021 United States (map)
Hard to believe it, but Foggy Noggin Brewing turns 8 years old this month.  In many ways it seems like yesterday, but it has been 1,600 batches ago.

Annually, we release our vintage Anniversary Ale (English Old Ale) 6.8% ABV - 55 IBU. Anniversaries should be celebrated with a rich, full-bodied ale with lots of flavor and a hoppy balance to make a memorable experience. This wonderful Old Ale is ready to drink now, but will develop a more complex flavor profile with 3-5 years of proper cellaring.

Because 8 years is such a huge milestone, we will open our tasting room Friday, Saturday and Sunday (March 23rd - 25th) to meet the thirsty needs of Washington beer lovers.  Our annual vertical tasting event of all past years of Anniversary Ale, sold out in record time.  This is the first chance to taste the current vintage and compare to years past, an excellent way to gauge the aging of years past and determine how many bottles/cases of 2018 to purchase.

Each of the three days will have our 2018 Anniversary Ale on tap and 22 ounce bottles will be for sale, as long as they last.
