This Friday, February 22nd, we’ll be brewing our first Anniversary Ale in Lake City. As is our custom here at EBBC, we’ve invited a guest brewer to join us in crafting and brewing this year’s recipe. Our very own Brewer Bill and Matt van Wyk (the bearded fellow in the middle of the photo), Head Brewer at Oakshire Brewing in Eugene, OR, have cooked up a rye-based IPA kinda thing. The color should be rather red, but the hopping will be a game-day decision, allowing the brewers to work their magic in the kettle, using both familiar and experimental hop varieties. Viva La Collaboration!
Also getting in on the action are our neighbors, Kaffeklatsch. They’re baking us a few loaves of 100% rye bread, all of which will be sliced up and added to the mash tun, together with the rest of the grain, to ramp up even further the special rye character of this sure-to-be unique ale.
Look for the beer to be released on Monday, March 25 ahead of the official celebration on Saturday, March 30.

Tonight (08.24.10) at Naked City Taproom there’s a rare opportunity for local beer enthusiasts to taste at least 10 examples of beers made by Washington brewers based on award-winning home brew recipes.
The fruits of the “Pro-Am” project will pour and be judged at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, CO from Sept. 16-18, but you can taste them here first!
Here’s some more info about the event tonight and the Pro-Am project from Mark Emiley, coordinator of the Puget Sound Pro-Am Competition:
Thanks to the hard work of Naked City, for the first time ever, all homebrewers and beer lovers have a chance to sample from the largest assembly of Pro-Am beers available to the public in the history of Washington. Over ten homebrew recipes that were scaled up for commercial production will be on tap at Naked City starting on Tuesday, August 24th. These award winning homebrew recipes were selected from the Puget Sound Pro-Am homebrew competition in April after careful selection from Washington craft brewers. Many of these beers will be sent on the Great American Beer Festival’s Pro-Am Competition in September.
There is only a limited amount of each of these beers available so come down to Naked City for your chance to try these beers side by side and celebrate the tie between homebrewers and craft brewers. Here are some of the beers that will be featured:
-Baron: ‘Maui Wowie Coconut Porter’
-Big Al: ‘Uber Alt Dusseldorf Alt’
-Big Time: ‘Baltic Porter’
-BJ’s: ‘Rod and Todd Flanders’
-Elliott Bay: ‘Black Pepper Porter’
-Elysian: ‘Polecat Porter Baltic Porter’
-Naked City: ‘Imperial Wood Aged Porter’
-Big Horn/Ram: ‘Blackened Hops Cascadian Dark Ale’
-Rock Bottom-Bellevue: ‘Achtung Baby Berliner Weisse’
-Rock Bottom-Seattle: ‘May the Schwartz be with You Schwarzbier”
-Schooner Exact: ‘Scottish Wee Heavy’
As a special offer, in the evening AHA members can renew their memberships for a reduced rate ($33 – find Mark Emiley). Come on down, bring your friends, and have a great time enjoying the products of the finest homebrewers and Puget Sound craft brewers!
See ya there!
Git on down to West Seattle Saturday, Aug. 21 for the Junction Bonanza Days, where we’re fixin’ to throw down some Rawhide Sloppy Joes that’ll knock yer boots off!
And if that ain’t enough, we’ll be offerin’ up our lil’ brown jugs of hooch for 1/2 off from 11:00 am til 5:00 pm!
Be sure to come by the BEER GARDEN in front of our West Seattle pub. It went live last night and will remain open until Sunday evening.
While your there, try our latest creation, the Saison de la Chance, a Belgian-style farmhouse ale brewed together with guest brewer Jason Parker, of Pike, Redhook, Fish, and Pyramid fame.
Be aware, though, that it can be challenging to find parking in the Junction during the WS Summer Fest, so be patient, ride your bike, walk, or take the bus!
The Unanimous Declaration of Elliott Bay Brewing: We hold these truths to be self-evident:
- Fresh, locally brewed beer tastes better.
- Locally owned and operated craft breweries and pubs help build the regional economy.
- Choosing organically brewed beer helps protect our soil and water for future generations.
Happy 4th, y’all!
This Friday, June 4th we’re brewing “Saison de la Chance” to commemorate thirteenth years of brewing in West Seattle.
Each year we collaborate with a different brewer to come up with a unique recipe for our anniversary, celebrated during the week of the West Seattle Street Fair (a.k.a. Summerfest), July 5-11th.
This year’s guest brewer is West Seattle-ite, Jason Parker. While he’s been “retired” from the local brewing scene for a number of years, Jason was the original brewer at Pike Place Brewing on Western Ave., helped start Fish Brewing in Olympia, worked at Redhook when it was in Fremont and Pyramid when they still made beer on Royal Brougham. Suffice it to say, he earned his chops “back in the day” when craft brewing was in its infancy in Seattle. He’s got lots of good stories to tell too!
We’re very proud to have this local brewing legend agree to work with us to develop a beer for such a momentous and auspicious occasion. The recipe incorporates some unique ingredients, our Belgian yeast strain, and possibly some different hop varieties that we’ve not brewed with before. The resulting beer is designed to be a genuine thirst quencher for those sunny summer days that MUST be just around the corner!
Stay tuned for photos from Friday’s brew day and a sneak peek at the logo being turned in to t-shirts, tattoos, and maybe event cycling jerseys!
Join summertime revelers at Bell Harbor’s Pier 66 & Elliott Hall celebrating over 70 of the Seattle area’s most talented chefs, breweries, wineries and purveyors of fine food and beverages. (This is a 21 years and over event.)
