Schooner Exact to Celebrate 5th Anniversary at Beveridge Place Pub With 8 Wood-Aged Beers

January 13th, 2012 · No Comments · Events, Washington Breweries

Schooner Exact Brewing kicked things off for their little brewery with a party at Beveridge Place back on January 20, 2007. Exactly 5 years later to the day, owners Matt & Heather McClung return to BPP to celebrate what the business has become. It’s been quite a journey, and along the way Schooner Exact has grown into one of Seattle’s best breweries.

The brewery started out with humble beginnings as a nanobrewery operating out of an ActivSpace unit in West Seattle. Business was booming, and in 2009 they purchased a larger system and subleased a space connected to the former location of Trade Route Brewing in South Park. Not long after, Trade Route opted out of their lease to move down south to Pacific, Washington, and Schooner Exact made the decision to move yet again. That move brought them to their current location in SODO, which has turned out to be perfect for their needs.

Matt, Heather, Colin Lenfesty, and the rest of the team at Schooner Exact, continue to make a great regular lineup of beer, but they also impress with their special releases. They’ve grown their barrel-aging program at the brewery, and for this anniversary party they’ll be bringing 8 different wood-aged beers, including a dark smoked lager, barrel-aged imperial porter, a sneak preview of their sour program, and more. I sampled the barrel-aged imperial porter last night at The Noble Fir, and it is outstanding.

Congrats to Schooner Exact for 5 great years, and I look forward to many more!
