Bellingham is on the verge of another brewery opening. Stones Throw Brewery is working hard on permitting and just dialing things in. While their doors are not open just yet, they’ve been hard at work brewing and, in the past few days, self distributing their kegs around the Bellingham area.
The first keg is a 4.8% Session IPA.
Jack at Stones Throw had this to say about their first beer
This is the first batch of beer that’s gone through our brand new system. It was set up to be a pale ale. The batch turned out to be slightly more bitter, but still lower AVB. Totally drinkable, so we made it a session IPA. We’ve distributed 7 kegs and only have 1 keg left.
I asked Jack why they chose Fairhaven Pizza for the first keg. Besides the great relationship Stones Throw has developed with James at Fairhaven Pizza, he said it was a natural fit because
The delivery vehicle was just a hand truck up the street. We’re excited to have our beer flowing throughout Fairhaven and keep it local as possible.
James Wadkins, Owner of Fairhaven Pizza said
Pizza and beer go together like peanut butter and jelly
Or we could say it goes together like pizza and beer because there are few things more fitting than that. Fairhaven Pizza is no stranger to craft beer. They have 17 taps, including many Tap Trail breweries, craft bottles and beer to go. Head on in today because pints are only $3 from 4pm to close Mondays.
After distributing the first keg to Fairhaven Pizza, Jack and Tony delivered kegs to Chair 9 Restaurant and Graham’s
