CRAFT BEER CLICKABLES
>> Seaplane Kitchen and Bar in Kenmore has been transformed into Stoup Brewing Kenmore. The pandemic, as well as maybe too fancy high pricing, sent restaurant owners Deming Maclise, James Weimann, and Chef Jason Stoneburner looking for a brewery partnership. Stoup said yes. Stoup Brewing Kenmore opens today with the same delicious beer brewed by Brad Benson, Lara Zahaba, and Robyn Shumacher, but also with Stoneburner’s cuisine. Stoup Brewing Kenmores opens today at 2 p.m. at 6704 NE 181st St. in Kenmore.
>>> Seattle Beer Week begins today and runs for 10 days. The Seattle Beer Week 2021 events are listed here.
>>> Oregon’s space-themed Ecliptic Brewing is excited to announce the opening of a second production facility and taproom in Southeast Portland in the summer of 2021, named “The Moon Room”.
>>> Everybody’s Brewing has just announced the promotion of Dave McGinley, a member of Everybody’s brewing team, to the position of head brewer.
>>> New session IPA, Trooper IPA, created by Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson and Robinsons Brewery Head Brewer Martyn Weeks references “American IPA revolution.”
