It has been a long time coming, but Bluebird Microcreamery is now officially becoming Bluebird Microcreamery & Brewery. That’s right, my favorite local ice cream shop is now making their own beer. They’ll be brewing on the old 2bbl system from Naked City Brewery, and they will be focusing on “dessert-focused” beers meant to go well with ice cream (float anyone?). More details below about their Grand Opening event taking place tonight at 5pm at their Phinneywood location on Greenwood Ave. Also, according to Allecia Vermillion over at Seattle Met, longtime homebrewer Tom Schmidlin will be heading up the brewing operations.
Bluebird Brewing is set to open to the public this Thursday 11/15/12. Bluebird Brewing is a 2bbl nanobrewery that will provide Bluebird Ice Cream shops with craft sodas and dessert-focused beers. This means that your favorite ice cream shop will also be your favorite soda fountain, (including adult sodas.)
