Foggy Noggin Brewing Prepares For Their 8th Anniversary

Many craft breweries start out small, then slowly expand as they find some success and the demand for their beer grows.  A few breweries, on the other hand, start out small and prefer to stay small by choice.  One such brewery is Foggy Noggin Brewing Company in Bothell.

Since first opening their doors to the public back in 2010, Foggy Noggin has been brewing on a tiny 1/2 barrel system.  1 barrel is approximately 31 gallons, so brewing on a 1/2 barrel system means that Foggy Noggin produces just 15.5 gallons of beer per batch.  That’s about enough to fill just one full size keg, though most of their beer finds it’s way into 1/6 barrel (5 gallon) or 1/4 barrel (7.5 gallon) kegs.

Now Foggy Noggin is preparing to celebrate their 8th Anniversary, with a 3-day-long celebration from March 23rd to 25th and the release of their special 8th Anniversary Ale.
