Cloudburst Brewing celebrates 8 years on January 6th



If things don’t look quite right here on the site, we are currently undergoing some technical issues that we hope to resolve soon. Thanks. In the meantime…

Cloudburst Brewing marks 8 years with a special beer and a party at the Shilshole location

Eight years ago the world was a lot different. For example, people paid me money to write stories they would publish in magazines. What are magazines? Ask your grandpa. In one such story for one such magazine, I introduced readers to a brand-new brewery in Seattle called Cloudburst Brewing. I had to write the story weeks and weeks before the brewery actually opened, because magazines.

At that time, I talked with Steve Luke about what he had planned for his new brewery and he said that, with very few exceptions, he intended to never brew the same beer twice. “No flagship beer?” I asked. “That’s crazy talk.” Eight years ago, that was indeed crazy talk but within a year or two it would become not-so-crazy talk in the communis lingua of craft beer.

Steve Luke, 8 years ago.

Sure, there’s still plenty of room for flagships in the industry today, but the contemporary craft beer audience (that’s you) has gained an appreciation for one-offs and the other kinds of always-new, always-cool stuff Cloudburst does. And if you like hops, you love what Cloudburst does with ’em. In fact, Cloudburst Brewing hits the mark with whatever it does. Cloudburst is one of the shiniest gems on the Emerald City’s beer scene and has been since the git.

On Saturday, January 6th Cloudburst Brewing celebrates its eighth anniversary at its location in Ballard. You are invited to join them for the celebration, which will include the tapping of the last keg of Darkenfloxx in existence. Also, live musical entertainment and other stuff.

They are not calling it the anniversary beer, per se, but Bo already showed up. Party Crashin’ Bo Pils is a <5% ABV lager-style beer brewed with Weyermann Floor-Malted Bohemian Pilsner Malt, German Tettnang hops, and Czech Saaz hops. After it was brewed, Bo sat around chillin’ for seven weeks, which is what needs to happen when you’re making a serious lager/pilsner. Stay in the know about this event and all the other Cloudburst stuff by following the brewery on Instagram.
