We’ll be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Village Books here in the Boundary Bay Brewery Beer Garden Thursday, June 17th. There will be a taping of the Chuckanut Radio Hour , live music by The Atlantics, Alan Rhodes, The Bellingham Bean and poet Kevin Murphy. The event is free, and the show will begin at 7:00, right after the regular Thursday evening happy hour. As an extra treat, we’ve also created a special Anniversary Ale for the occasion.
Boundary Bay Brewery is proud to brew a special Scottish Style Ale to help celebrate the 30th anniversary of Village Books. Village Books has been a long time icon in our community that has drawn a cult-like following and devoted fans. We wanted to celebrate that history with a version of our Scotch Ale which was our first flagship beer. Our original Scotch Ale is a hearty beer with a full body and a fine malt character. With just enough hops to balance the malt, the result is smooth and rich without becoming too sweet. The beer we’ve brewed for Village Books uses more peat malts to emphasize an earthy, smoky quality which we thought symbolized the long history of this wonderful, independent bookstore in our community.
This is exactly the kind of event that we love so very much here at Boundary Bay Brewery! We’ve always been strongly committed to strengthening our local community and economy, and a very easy way to do that is to support other local businesses who make a difference in our area. Village Books is an excellent example of just that kind of business! Join us here in the Beer Garden next Thursday…to celebrate Village Books and this incredible community we are all a part of. Cheers!
