Thank you! NorthBank Champion Award

Thursday, Oct. 11, Northbank Brewers Alliance presented us with the ‘NorthBank Champion’ trophy. The trophy is an annual award honoring 3 local taprooms in response to a single question survey of the breweries: “Which taproom does the best to support SW Washington Beer?” Each brewery has 1 vote and the public Facebook vote accounted for 1.5 votes in the event of a tie.

We were completely surprised! Mike and I were both working behind the bar, and we starting noticing many of our craft beer friends (industry friends) were arriving. We were so grateful to see everyone but honestly just thought they were meeting up for meetings and/or pints together. About an hour into to noticing, next thing you know, Mike DiFabio of Fortside Brewing, a member of the NorthBank Brewers Alliance, came up to the bar with the trophy and made the announcement. We were totally surprised and taken aback. Everyone cheered, we said a few words and there may have been some tears along with it!

We are very grateful to be recognized by the Northbank brewers and North Bank craft beer community! We love this community and supporting local craft beer. We believe in SW Washington and what the breweries are doing to make this a great place to live, work, and share life with others. We work very hard running our taphouse and want to make it a place where everyone is welcome, and we can highlight local, independent craft beer! To be recognized for doing what you love is very rewarding! Thank you to everyone who voted for us! We are in very good company, and we are proudly displaying our award in our taproom!

2nd place was Hockinson Market joined by 3Peaks Public House and Taproom for 3rd. All three taprooms are engraved on the award for 2018!

Couve Brew Bevy & Our First Bevy on the Road

Our brew-loving ladies group Couve Brew Bevy had our first outing for what we are calling "Bevy on the Road." We volunteered at the recent Vancouver Brewfest in Esther Short park and poured craft beer for all those fest-goers to enjoy in Vancouver, Wa. Seventeen ladies volunteered and shared their passion of craft beer with fest goers, talked beer with craft beer lovers and novices alike, and then got the chance to hang out together after volunteering! This dynamic group of women who love beer are amazing and awesome and funny and kind and really make Couve Brew Bevy special! 

A huge thank you goes out to .....(L to R in the photo below)...Hayley, Rachel, Amanda, Alicia, Annie, Ramona, Kimberly, Amy, Carol, Missy, Jenny, Lindsay, Tracy, Jovana! Back row - Honorary Bevy Ladies - Thank you for coming and volunteering with us ....Joann Mueller, Pam Suttle, and Cheryl Hamilton!

A special extra thank you goes to Rachel, Annie and Missy for photos of the group, and to Amy and her small but mighty team of ladies who made pretzel necklaces to share with the ladies at the fest and to Michelle Svendsen of North Jetty Brewing for sporting her Couve Brew Bevy t-shirt while rocking it the keg toss....she took second place and was the only lady tossing! 

If you want to learn more about Couve Brew Bevy and/or join us at our monthly meet-up or to get involved in Bevy on the Road, please check out the next meet up on our website!
