West Sound Brewers to be in the Kitsap Sun

The WSB is going to be in an article for the Kitsap Sun! Each year the Sun publishs its Westsound magazine. This year it's going to include a feature on our brew club! I gave an interview over the phone today with a reporter from the Kitsap Sun. I sure hope I got all my facts right! Well, in order to make the interview complete, WSB needs a volunteer. The Kitsap Sun wants to post a picture or two of someone in our club brewing beer. They are looking for anyone brewing beer anytime between today and the end of next weekend (Sunday, March 23rd). If you are brewing during this time and would consider having a picture of your brewing in the paper, please email me at I will then arrange the get together between the Kitsap Sun and youself. If we can't get a volunteer, I will be providing pictures from our vast archive. :)

The next WSB meeting is scheduled for Saturday March 29th from 2-6pm at the Silver City Taproom in Bremerton. Please bring your homebrews and snacks to share. No other bottled commercial beers will be allowed, but you may be able to purchase Silver City beers.
