Watts Brewing is Hosting a Special Release Event this Saturday

A glass of Watts Brewing Solitary Series imperial stout


“I’m excited to share that we’re ready to release the first beer in the Solitary Series brewed at our new location,” says Evan Watt, the brewer/owner at Watts Brewing in Woodinville, Washington. The company moved into the new location when Sumerian Brewing moved out last summer (read about that development here).

The first Woodinville-brewed Solitary Series beer is an imperial stout aged on American oak and amburana, a type of wood from South America gaining favor within the whiskey world. 

“It’s a really cool beer and something we’ve been working on for a couple years now,” said Watts. “You may not have heard of amburana, but it’s a Brazilian hardwood that has a unique aroma reminiscent of cinnamon and nutmeg.”

“We built this recipe as the perfect beer to showcase amburana, with chocolatey roast malts, light creamy body, a touch of vanilla from the oak aging, and a dry coffee-like finish.  You can think of it like a cinnamon mocha milkshake without the sweetness. We’re really excited with how it came out, and can’t wait to share it with you!”

To celebrate, the brewery is throwing a release party on Saturday, January 27.  Tap into the beer at 1:00 pm. Also, Bothell’s own Carolina Smoke BBQ in-house to serve up BBQ combo plates.  The brewery will also host a special guided tasting at 12:30 pm for Solitary Society members.  If you’re not already a Solitary Society member, you can join here.

“[The tasting event] is designed to give you a behind-the-scenes look at our recipe development process, wood aging techniques, and a bit of background on the amburana wood used for this beer,” says Watts.

“In addition to the special tasting, our Solitary Society members get two bottles from each Solitary Series release.  We’re not yet set up to fill bottles, so instead we’re offering a growler fill for this batch.  Yes, it’s one thing instead of two, but it’s 50% more beer than we originally promised, so hopefully that more than makes up for it.  If you can’t make it to the special tasting, you can always redeem your Solitary Society perks–the 12 oz pour and the growler fill–at a later date.”

Watts says, “We’re proud of how this beer has developed, and we want to make sure you all get a chance to try it while it’s here!  Hopefully, we get to share it with you either at the release party or sometime soon.”
