Got Cabin Fever?

Ah the joys of winter…frosty weather, impending holidays, and seasonal beers to soothe all our wordly woes.  I am oh so happy to say that Boundary Bay Brewery’s winter warmer, Cabin Fever, will FINALLY be on tap at the brewery this Tuesday, November 18th.  With an original gravity of 1.072, this big beer is feverinsnowtreesdeceptively strong.  We use Mt. Hood, Warrior, and Crystal hops along with Pale 2-Row, Munich, Caraston, Dark Crystal, Chocolate Malts, and Oats.  Specially brewed and bottled for the Pacific Northwest winters, this winter warmer’s dark red-brown color and rich malty flavor will complement any rich, hardy meal as well as your favorite spicy dish.  However, with it’s cold conditioned, smooth, dry-hopped flavor, Cabin Fever is very satisfying all by itself.  Come in from the cold and grab a taste of this beer that won a Silver at the World Beer Cup in 2008, a Bronze at the World Beer Cup in 2006, a Gold at the 2004 North American Beer Awards, a Bronze in the 2002 Great American Beer Festival, and a Silver at the Great American Beer Festival in 1999.  Don’t go crazy this winter…get your Cabin Fever now!  And don’t forget, next Tuesday, you can grab yourself some 22 oz bottles of Cabin Fever since we’ll be bottling all day Monday.  This year, be the favorite guest at the Thanksgiving table…bring enough Cabin Fever for everyone!

We Brew Rootbeer Too!

So, by now most of you who are reading this blog know who we, Boundary Bay, are.  You know we are deep in the heart of beloved Bellingham.    You know we have good food here in our brew pub that keeps traditional pub fare on its toes.  You know we brew great Northwest beers that people like enough to give awards to.  But did you know that we brew our own root beer too?  Not only that, but our root beer has it’s own t-shirt and has won an award or two all by itself!

Sure, the shirt is made for kids, but you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy our root beer that took home the Gold medal (in the soft drink category) at the 2004 North American Beer Awards and the Silver in 2005.

Come in and enjoy the last little bit of summer by kicking back outside in our Beer Garden sipping on a good old fashioned root beer that is made with love, by hand, right here in lovely little Bellingham.

Pilsner on tap now!

Well, the weather outside is frightful, but at least there’s one thing we can count on to herald the beginning of summer: Pilsner is officially on tap at Boundary Bay Brewery! Our Pilsner is a light, honey colored lager with a beautiful hop aroma and flavor. This lager is brewed in the traditional manner using only the finest ingredients and is fermented at lower temperatures than an ale, which creates a drier body with less fruity esters. The Pilsner is brewed in limited quantities and is a summer favorite that some locals wait all year for, so hurry in for a taste, as it will only be on tap until it’s gone!

Featured Boundary Bay Brew: Dunkles Bock: All German, All the time!

Our traditional German-style Bock is made with all German malts and has a low hop flavor with a deep copper color.  It is strong, full-bodied and bottom fermented.   Apparently, it’s a consistent favorite as it’s won awards at the North American Beer Awards in 2004, 2006, and 2007 as well as at the Great American Beer Festival Awards in 2004 and 2001.  We’ll be releasing this long time favorite on March 18th so if you can still stand after your St. Paddy’s Day celebrations, come on down to Boundary Bay Brewery and sample our Dunkles Bock – perfect with one of Ralf’s Bavarian pretzels!
