Home Brewin’ @ The Slippery PigJuly 12th, 2011 by Shannon Harkness
A few months ago, being hit by the “brew” bug, the hubs and I and a good friend took a tour of the Slippery Pig Brewery in Poulsbo.
One of the four newest breweries in Poulsbo, Slippery Pig boasts offerings from locally grown food and you can’t get more local than your own farm, which is exactly what Brewmaster Dave Lambert does. Dave and his wife, Shawna, also own and operate Red Rooster Farm and vend their products at Central Market and the Poulsbo Farmer’s Market. Being different is what Slippery Pig is famous for, using less common ingredients in their brews. During the early spring and winter, when fresh produce wasn’t available, Dave incorporated Pine and Cedar into his brews. One of the first offerings from the garden, Rhubarb, made it into batches of The Pig’s Rhubarb IPA. Not to wish away the little summer that we have, but I can’t wait to taste the Pumpkin Beer!
This THURSDAY (yep, in TWO days), you should join us from 6-9 pm for a presentation and tour of the Slippery Pig. We will discuss the passion behind the beer and the process from a weekend hobby to a business endeavor. Please register online, noticing that the time online is wrong and our webmaster is on vacation!
The time is 6-9 pm.
The place is 795 NW Finn Hill Road Poulsbo
The cost is $35
