(Burien / ‘West’ Seattle , WA) If you happen to find inspiration from the sun and wish to make a drive to Alki Beach, the Ferry, or maybe just want to take a drive along 99, chances are you have forgotten about two breweries that are in your area. Elliott Bay recently has gone through some changes for the better and if you haven’t visited them yet, here are some additional reasons why you should.

     As a way to help those who like everything in one place nice and neat I have put most of their mentions on this page. If you want to learn more I invite you to visit their website or drive to one of their locations. Have a happy Weekend and as always be safe.

Cheers

Batch two oh oh is in the fermenter.

“Our Bi-Centennial Brew #200 is in the fermenter in Burien. We dreamed up a recipe that we thought would be worthy of this latest brew house landmark. It is a bold and hoppy red ale loosely based on the 1492 Imperialist Red Ale that graced our taps some months ago. But with this batch we cranked up the gravity to 20.0 (get it?) and boosted the bitterness to 70 IBUs, essentially arriving at an Double Red Ale...We thought you'd approve!”

“Look for a dry-hopped cask of it in West Seattle the Third Thursday in August. It should be pouring in Burien a week or so before that. Stay tuned for details.” –source, Elliott Bay Brewing’s ‘blog’

More barrels at Burien

“Two Fridays ago we trekked out to Woodinville, WA and met up with the winemakers at DeLille Cellars to taste them on a few of our beers, sample some of their wines, and haul home a few of their retired red wine barrels.”

“The result was that we left there with four barrels from three different barrel makers, all French, that we'll use to age some of our beers in over the upcoming months. “

“At present we're about ready to fill a few kegs with barley wine aged in a DeLille barrel that was used to make their 2003 Syrah. Once we get the kegs carbonated we'll let you all know about a release date.” –source, Elliott Bay Brewery ‘blog’

Pucker up in West Seattle

“It's that time of the month again...time to release another barrel-aged beer from our growing collection of rare one-off beers stored in the depths of our brewery in Burien.”

“In West Seattle we'll trot out five gallons of blended sour beer. We took two different beers (Red and Blonde von Boorian) and aged them each for nine months in French oak barrels that had been inoculated w/ Brettanomyces yeast. This served to sour both beers, each in their own way. Then we blended the two together to create something that turned out to be greater than the sum of its parts.”

“Our Burien beer will be the No Doubt Stout aged in a Woodford Reserve bourbon barrel. There are mild hints of char owing to the way bourbon barrels are prepared and a wee bit of vanilla imparted from the oak. It's not very boozy, but still begs to be sipped slowly and savoured.”

“Both kegs will be pouring starting Saturday, August 1st. Don't wait too long, though. They usually disappear pretty quickly.” –source, Elliott Bay Brewery ‘blog’

Big things coming to Elliott Bay

“Today we moved one of our open fermenters out of the brew house in preparatation for two NEW fermenters that are scheduled to arrive in Burien tomorrow!”

“The new tanks will make it possible for us to brew more beer and to brew some of your favorite Imperial / Strong / Double recipes more often...think Demo, Riot, Hoppus Callosum, Imperial von Boorian, Pro-Am
Imperial IPA, and Hellmouth Imperial IPA.”
