New Kingston brewery plans summer opening

blog.breweryKingston could have a new watering hole this summer.

A new brewery called Downpour plans to open in the former Sacks Feed & Garden. Downpour Brewing applied for a microbrewery license Thursday for 10991 Highway 104.

We haven’t heard back from the owners yet, but the brewery’s page on Facebook suggests it could open in early July. Downpour would be the 11th licensed microbrewery in the county and the sixth in North Kitsap.

Slippery Pig Brewery is sliding into downtown Poulsbo



Slippery Pig Brewery, known for such eccentric offerings as the Dandelion Bitter, is planning a move to downtown Poulsbo.

The brewery applied for a conditional use permit from the city to allow it to relocate to 18801 Front Street. A liquor license application was also submitted for the location.

The building is currently home to the Delhi Palace restaurant. A Delhi Palace manager confirmed the restaurant is looking for a new space.

Slippery Pig has been housed at a farm on Finn Hill since its founding in 2011. Owner Dave Lambert said he expected to have keys to Front Street building on Tuesday. He plans to triple beer production at the downtown location. Along with brewing, Slippery Pig will offer beer tasting and live music, and may sell farm products.

The brewery  organized a Founders Club to raise money for the move. See the Slippery Pig page on Facebook or the website for more information.

The city is taking comments on the conditional use permit application through May 15.
