The Local Public House is hosting a Nano Night tonight – Wednesday, March 25, at 5 p.m. This is a great opportunity to try beer from some of Washington’s smallest craft breweries.

A nano brewery is a brewery with limited production and distribution that typically brews on a 3.5-barrel-per-batch system or smaller, though some describe it as a brewery with a 10-barrel-per-batch system or smaller. A barrel equals 31 gallons. And, for comparison, most homebrewers brew 5- to 10-gallon batches of beer.

Nano Night at The Local will feature 16 different beers from 16 different Washington nano breweries, plus there will be raffle giveaways, and you will have the chance to meet some of the brewers.

“Almost every person who brews beer at home has had the dream to make beer for all to enjoy,” says Rob Whitney of The Local. “This is going to be a great event and we hope everyone can come out and enjoy it!”

Menace Brewing beers are featured at The Local Public House. Menace opened in Ferndale almost five years ago, and it got its start on a half-barrel system, which was eventually upgraded to a 2-barrel system. Now the brewery operates on a 3.5-barrel system, plus it has acquired additional fermenters. “We hope to move (the brewery) to Bellingham in the near future to be closer to our beer community that we love so much,” says Whitney.
