Engine House No. 9 released its first bottles this past March — Raspberry Wild Ale and a Farmhouse Style Saison.
Saturday, E9 head brewer Shane Johns leaned over and a Washington Beer Awards gold medal was placed around his neck for the Raspberry Wild. He leaned over again for a bronze for his Nefelibata sour.
Saturday, June 27, E9 will release its next round of bottles when the doors open at 8 a.m. The restaurant and brewery at Sixth and Pine in Tacoma will be releasing four new saisons and a barrel aged fruited sour. All five will be available on draft on the day of release.
