As many of you know, I've been working on opening a brewery here in the Seattle area. The hop shortage, along with our failure to be able to secure a hop contract, has forced us to re-write our business plan. The new plan will consist of a taphouse with 18-20 guest taps and a selection of rotating house beers brewed on much smaller brew sytem. We are now looking at locations with more of a retail presence while still allowing room to brew on site.

This will allow us to hopefully ride out the current hop situation, begin creating revenue through the taphouse and get our name out there. The plan is to upgrade to a larger brew system and increase production in the next three years.

This all leads up to now. We may be able to get our name out there sooner than expected. Stix Brewery (where I've been working part time) approached me and said that they'd like to brew one of my recipes and serve it in their pub. The head brewer and owner both really like our beers. Today we pulled together the ingredients to brew a 5 bbl batch of "RYE" ley's Rye IPA. We will be brewing it on Friday. It will be called "Naked City Imperial Rye" when it goes on tap at Stix and perhaps a few other pubs in town.

I'll keep you updated on the progress and be sure and let everyone know when it taps.

Needless to say, I'm pretty excited!

Dude. Rock
Now I have an idea as to what I should do with that five pounds of malted rye I have down in my basement.

A damn good beer to put on tap. I look forward to ordering a pint at Stix. Hope to make it back over that way sometime in February.

That is awesome.

I get out to Seattle once every couple of years and I think I might be due for a Seahawks game at Qwest in Fall '08. If I make it out, I am making a mental note to PM you around that time and find out where I can go get a pint of Naked City.

Congrats!
