Start our adventure at one brewery and then just hop-on to go to the next brewery, and so on. Participating breweries: Chuckanut Brewery, Boundary Bay Brewing, Kulshan Brewing, Wander, and Aslan Brewing. Even though the last two aren't open yet, they'd still like to show off their spaces.

foggy_noggin_diabloFoggy Noggin Brewing - They'll be releasing Diablo del Sol – English Pale Ale - SEASONAL. Sparky would be proud of this incredible interpretation of an English Pale Ale. This beer has a bold hoppy aroma that will warn you to apply sunscreen and put on your sunglasses. A huge amount of hops are added to the end of the boil to make this beer pop. Nice balance with a rich malty sweetness and floral aggressive hoppy pressence will have you thinking Spring is already here. ¡Salud!

Geaux Brewing - Opening our brewery doors. Come on down between noon and 8pm to see how we do it—nano style. We'll be brewing an Orange Wit that day with a fellow homebrewer so you'll be able to not only talk to the brewers but also see us in action. We're also releasing a new beer—a Belgian-style pale. It'll be a fun time. Families welcome!
