Each year, the publication asks hundreds of readers to vote online or by mail for best beer, best homebrew store, best bartender, best beer store, and best brewery…among many, many other categories. We are honored to receive these awards, particularly because they are from the readers of Northwest Brewing News. These are the people we make our beer for, the people who come in on a regular basis and sample our craft. Sure, we brew beers that we like to drink, but with Reader’s Choice awards like this, we get to see that we brew beers that YOU like to drink as well! And that really, really matters to us.
We want to extend a heartfelt thank you! Not only to those who voted in this Readers Choice poll, but to all of our loyal customers, friends and fans who have supported us through the years. We opened our doors in 1995 and have been lucky enough to have been a part of a supportive, involved community since the very beginning. While our mission has always been to brew craft beers that are excellent examples of classic styles, it has always been equally important for us to have a strong connection to our community. I think there’s a reason Boundary Bay Brewery has been dubbed “Pure Bellingham.” And that matters a whole lot to us!
The official results will be printed in the Winter issue of Northwest Brewing News which comes out January 17th. Click here to subscribe online!
