Here is a press release from Bainbridge Brewing regarding the upcoming anniversary and special beer releases.
Bainbridge Island, WA - June 7, 2016 - Bainbridge Brewing is proud to celebrate its 4th Anniversary with a party on Friday June 10th (2-9pm) and Saturday June 11th (12-9pm) at the brewery’s taproom on Bainbridge Island. Coinciding with the celebration is the tapping of rare and special beers including Bainbridge 4th Anniversary Ale.
The brewery’s anniversary celebration will feature an extended lineup of sixteen different Bainbridge beers, including rare beers from its cellar, and the release of its 4th Anniversary Ale. Clocking in at 9.9% ABV, Bainbridge 4th Anniversary Ale is a Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, aged on a disturbing amount of cacao nibs ethically sourced from Ghana by TCH - chocolate.
“This year’s beer is admittedly a bit of a softball,” said Brewmaster and Co-Founder Russell Everett, “Big Imperial Stout. Barrel Aged. Chocolate. Who doesn’t love that?”
The beer, and others, will be available in a special limited edition 4th Anniversary commemorative glass at the brewery. Saturday will feature live acoustic local music. Food will be available from local vendors The Dog Wagon on Friday, and B.I. BBQ on Saturday.
There will be a limited release of the Bainbridge 4th Anniversary Ale in individually wax-dipped 22oz bottles at the brewery, and a select few cases will make their way to the brewery’s distributors.
Bainbridge beer, both on draft and in bottles, is distributed locally by the brewery on Bainbridge Island and Poulsbo, by Olympic Distributing in Clallam and Jefferson counties, and by Alpha Distributing throughout Western Washington.
Bainbridge Brewing was founded in 2012 by father and son owners Chuck and Russell Everett. The brewery serves beer to thirsty islanders and visitors seven days a week in its taproom, located at 9415 Coppertop Loop NE, Suite 104, Bainbridge Island, WA 98110. Off-island the beer is distributed throughout Western Washington by Alpha Distributing of Kent, WA.
