Our brewing team’s dedication to organic beer is truly remarkable. With less than 1% of breweries embracing organic practices, it’s clear that being green isn’t a walk in the park. Our talented brewers have developed a program centered around sustainable beers, continuously adapting to the challenges presented by nature and market forces. Their passion for the craft and appreciation for the process set both our team and our beers apart. We hope you’ll join us in supporting a more sustainable world, one pint at a time.
As we continue our journey in supporting a more sustainable world, one pint at a time, we’re delighted to see our beer in cans at local stores like West Seattle Thriftway and Marlenes Market in Federal way and Tacoma. There, you’ll find a diverse range of styles, many of which feature the USDA organic seal. We’re also committed to bottling an extensive selection of barrel-aged and spontaneously fermented beers. With our constantly evolving lineup, you can always look forward to discovering something new and exciting.
At Elliott Bay Brewing Co., our commitment to organic certification is deeply rooted in our passion for providing customers with conscientiously crafted beers that benefit both their well-being and the environment. Becoming organically certified is a rigorous process, and we’ve dedicated ourselves to ensuring that our ingredients and production methods align with the highest organic standards.
Navigating the challenges of organic brewing is no small feat. With only a fraction of breweries being organic, our brewing team perseveres through the additional time and effort required to create sustainable beers. Typically, it takes an extra 6-8 weeks for recipe approval with the WSDA, but we believe it’s worth the wait to guarantee the quality and integrity of our products.
The organic certification process not only serves our customers but also supports the environment by promoting sustainable farming practices. We understand that the organic hops and grains market can be affected by fluctuations in agricultural conditions, which may impact our local farmers. In tough times, we remain steadfast in our mission to source the best organic ingredients, showcasing our unwavering commitment to the environment and the communities we serve.
Our dedication to organic brewing sets us apart, ensuring that every pint we serve is a testament to our devotion to sustainability, superior quality, and the well-being of our customers and the planet.
