“BEER’S THE THING”

Site Visit to Ice Harbor Brewery

Join us on Saturday, June 1, for a tour of Ice Harbor Brewery.  Russ Corey, Brewer Emeritus, will show us around the brewery and share information about the company’s quality processes, products and philosophies, including:

·         Fresh is Best

Following the tour, we invite you to join us for a late lunch (no-host) and socializing/networking in the Pub.

A little background:

Ice Harbor Brewing Company was founded in 1996 when Mike Hall and Bill Jaquish quit their jobs at the Hanford site to pursue their dream — to start a local brewery.

Mike and Bill had both homebrewed for 10 years and had learned that great beer can only be brewed by people with a deep understanding of brewing and a driving passion for beer.  Their dream was to create a place where local beer lovers could stop by to talk about beer, sample the brews and fill their refillable bottles with draft beer like in the days of old.  They dreamed of being the best brewery around, with their beers proudly served throughout the Tri-Cities. 

From this vision the Ice Harbor Brewing Company was born.  Located in downtown Kennewick, their first brewery and pub had it all – brewing area, homebrew supply shop, offices, cold storage area, and a pub.  In 2007, they opened Ice Harbor Brewing Company at the Marina, for a unique dining experience on the water.  And in July of 2023, they closed the original shop when they opened their new location at the west end of the Public Market at Columbia River Warehouse.  This space is over twice the size of their original location.

Ice Harbor Brewing Company produces a variety of award-winning beers, including Runaway Red Ale, Sternwheeler Stout, Harvest Pale Ale, Columbia Kölsch, Hop Warrior, Dust Cloud IPA, Nut Brown Ale, and Tangerine ExBEERience Hefeweizen, Nut Brown Ale, and Maiden Washington.  They also produce several flavored seltzers

SPACE IS LIMITED FOR THIS SITE VISIT!  

For planning purposes, reservations must be received by May 29.  Send an email to denise.clements@aecom.com with your name, phone number, company affiliation, and if you will be staying for food/drink following the tour.
