New Eastside Brewery! Foggy Noggin Brewery to Open in Bothell

As reported today on the Washington Beer Blog, there will be a new nano-brewery opening up in Bothell.

Foggy Noggin Brewery will specialize in English Styled Ales with plans to produce 2 flagship styles; an English Bitter called Bit O'Beaver and a Robust Porter called interestingly enough, Christmas Duck on their tiny half barrel (yup, that's one keg at a time!) system.

They are currently going through their final steps of permitting hoping to stage their grand opening sometime in December or January. They have not disclosed distribution plans, but they will have a tasting room in Bothell where their product will be available.

To get the latest updates, check out their website at http://www.foggynogginbrewing.com/ and follow them on Twitter at http://twitter.com/fognog.

3 Days Left for Urban Eats! 3 courses for $30

The Urban Eats October Restaurant Promotion ends this Thursday, October 29th, leaving you 3 more nights to savor some great restaurants at a hefty discount. Although the majority of restaurants involved in this promotion are in Seattle, the Eastside certainly gets some love with many of the best restaurants in the area taking part.

If you have been curious about any of these restaurants this is a great opportunity to see what they have to offer with your choice of an Appetizer, Entree and Dessert all for $30. Most participating restaurants also offer a paired wine flight for an additional charge.

Your Eastside options include:
  • Bradley & Mikel's Pearl Bar and Dining
  • Flo Restaurant & Sake Bar
  • Seastar Restaurant & Raw Bar
  • Anthony's Homeport
  • Bin on the Lake
  • Third Floor Fish Cafe
  • Trellis
Surrounding Areas:
  • Cellar 46 Degrees on Mercer Island
  • The Calcutta Grill in Newcastle
  • Terra Vista at the Snoqualmie Casino
If you miss out on this October event, have no fear as the Dine Around Seattle promotion is coming up in November, although the Eastside offerings are not nearly as exciting. More to come about DAS later.

Have you had a chance to partake in this promotion? Please leave a comment telling us about your experience!
