Notes – January 22, 2009

January 23rd, 2009 · No Comments · Notes

A few quick notes:

– First off, if you’re coming from the P-I welcome to the new blog. It will be the same old blog, but I also plan to keep an updated calendar of events and I’m going to try and put together my own brewery pages over time. It won’t be anything too fancy, but I’m looking forward to it. I’m definitely a bit lost when it comes to building a website, but I’m trying to figure a few things out as I go. Starting with WordPress has made things much easier than I expected they’d be…If anyone has suggestions (or sees a problem), feel free to email me at Like I said, it’s a work in progress. For now, I’m going to double post both here and there, and I’ll definitely make it obvious when I’m no longer using the P-I blog.

– The Lost Abbey/Port Brewing beer dinner at Collins Pub scheduled for this Saturday has been postponed until Feb 4. Tomme Arthur will be in town for the dinner, and his beers will be available on draft, in addition to bottles. Give the Collins Pub a call at (206) 623-1016 to see if they have more room.

– Stange Brewfest is this weekend out at Water Street Brew Pub in Port Townsend, and I’m sure many of you are headed out there. I’ve heard a few rumors over the past few months that the brewpub might be up for sale or going out of business, and someone on the WABL distribution list sent out an email pointing out this Craigslist add this past weekend:

Award winning Brewpub in historic Building on the water. Business revenue increases by at least 15% per year and grosses over 1 million dollars a for the past three years. Pub and brewery could possibly be sold separately. All serious offers will be considered.

I actually called the brewpub and spoke with Skip last week (maybe the week before), and he confirmed that the brewery was NOT going out of business. So, who knows. Either way, enjoy the weekend of strange brews.

– I picked up a few new beers at Pike St. Beer & Wine today, including the Southern Tier Cuvee Series 1, which is an oak aged strong ale. I’m guessing it’s available at other bottle shops in the area as well. I’m loving Bottleworks new blog, by the way. The main reason is just seeing what’s coming into the store. Their last New Brews post was on the 14th and has a few things you might want to get your hands on.
