A collaboration beer and a very well-fed hog await you at this annual event

Hogstead Farms picks up barrels of spent grain from Ravenna Brewing every Friday. The used barley is entirely edible but no longer suitable for making beer. Spent grain is a brewery’s bulkiest and most abundant byproduct. The farm feeds the spent grain to its pasture-raised hogs. It’s a mutually beneficial relationship between the Seattle brewery and the Marysville farm. For the rest of us, the benefit comes in the form of an annual Hog Roast at the brewery’s taproom at brewery’s taproom in Seattle. That event happens this Sunday, June 2nd.

“We’re doing our yearly Hog Roast this Sunday, June 2nd,” said Tommy Ransom of Ravenna Brewing. “We’ve always collaborated with a brewery to make an amazing beer to pair with the smoked hog. This year it’s Structures Brewing from Bellingham.”

Past collaborators have included Holy Mountain Brewing, Ruse Brewing, Cloudburst Brewing, and Urban Family Brewing. You can now add Structure Brewing to the list.

“We’ve got a banger West Coast Double IPA to release in cans and on draft. We’ll also have three beers on tap from Structures Brewing when we open. This event is always fun,” adds Tommy. “The farmer, Luke, starts prepping and smoking the pig 24 hours before the party starts, using maple wood from his own property. He pulls his smoker on wheels onto our patio, where the meat is hand pulled and served hot from the smoker with all the fixin’s, directly from the farm to your plate.”
