If you are reading this blog, you probably know what hops are, so we’ll spare you the basics. At this point in the craft beer world, lots of people not only know that they like “hoppy beer”, but they know what specific hop varieties they prefer, too.

When most people hear “oyster” used in the name of a beer, it doesn’t make them too thirsty (which is perfectly understandable). However, take a quick read through this post about our collaboration with Chelsea Oyster Farm and I think you’ll find your mouth watering for a taste. We’re also announcing two cool events you won’t want to miss. We teamed up with Chelsea Oyster Farms on this project and they were amazing to work with. They grow and harvest sustainable oysters on inlets near Olympia, WA. They are famous for growing a variety called the “Chelsea Gem.” The farm...
