The grand opening of the Dirty Bucket Brewery was celebrated Saturday, April 15.
Owners Chris Acord, Steve Acord and Sharon Wagner-Acord shared the following: “Our dream was to create a place where people can come and not only enjoy a hand-crafted beer, but be able to watch the brewing process completely. We are starting small and dreaming of bigger days to come as we light the flame on our 1/2 barrel brewing system.
“Each batch is hands-on craft at its best; we take care and pay close attention to detail in every pint we sell. With a current tap list of Filthy Hoppn’ IPA, XXX-Tra Filthy IPA, Dirty Amber, Dirty Blonde, and Black Lab American Stout, we try to provide a variety for everyone’s pallet.
“We enjoy the small brewing system; it allows us to create more styles frequently, keeping people coming back and trying something new. [We] pay homage to our ‘Home Brewing’ roots with our name. Dirty Bucket Brewing Co. is more than a name for our company, it is a piece of our history and where we came from in the brewing community.
“Our favorite quote from Sam Calagione, CEO and founder of Dogfish Head Brewery, is painted on our brewery wall: ‘Starting Small and Dreaming Big.’ It reminds us daily of where we were and where we are going.”
The Dirty Bucket Brewery is located at 19151 144th Ave.NE, Suite 101, in Woodinville, and can be reached at (206) 819-1570.
