Between the new taproom opening, award wins for Immersion Amber (Gold Medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival) and 2015 Fresh Hop IPA (First Place IPA at this year’s Yakima Fresh Hop Festival), the recent launch of Wonderland Trail IPA and now their 8th Anniversary and launch of their in-house kitchen, Two Beers has certainly been busy.  Their hard work has clearly paid off, and I’d like to extend my congratulations to Joel VandenBrink and the entire Two Beers Brewing and Seattle Cider Company family on their continued success and growth.  They’re an amazing local success story that I’ve been happy to follow these past 8 years.  I hope to see you at the Anniversary celebration on the 14th.

By the way, if you’re a dog lover, The Woods is still dog friendly.  In fact now they’re even more dog friendly, since Bread & Circuses will be serving (as noted from their opening day menu linked above): “Dog Menu chicken and rice.”  Woof woof!
