Being over-productive can have its drawbacks, like ending up with too many projects at once, or having your doctor insist you consider having a procedure that'll finally prevent you from making it Reign... man. From a dude who limits his over-productivity to beers, American Brewing Company
Helmed by the "father" of more than 200 beers (including dozens of award winners at places like Pike, Big Time, and Boundary Bay), ABC's a brewing/drink space serving up brand new suds from the back of a railway-adjacent office park; inside, the stainless steel-heavy production facility is lorded over by a window-walled tasting room -- entered through a seriously obscure doorway -- with towering ceilings, an oversize dark wood bar, and exposed duct-work, but not exposed duck-work, because Scrooge McDuck goes through considerable trouble to ensure no one knows how the hell he made that tower full of coins. Brew options range from the 7% ABV Breakaway IPA made with Vienna and Munich malts (as well as Amarillo and Simcoe hops that give it a citrusy character), to an opaque oatmeal stout made from six different malts, to the crystal-malted Ed's Red, to a session-style American Blonde that promises a "good body" and "nice head", but couldn't make ice cubes, because she didn't have the recipe! Additional taps will soon include a Belgian White spiced with cardamom and orange, and an organic number brewed for the Oregon Brewer's Festival, while the current pretzel-style nosh will be upgraded to pre-made deli-style sandwiches/snacks and brew-paired artisanal curds sourced from the nearby cheese monger, who opted to start slinging fromage when hate became financially untenable.
ABC's suds can also be had to-go style via refillable growlers and half-barrels (future plans call for bottled brews too), or at a burgeoning list of Puget Sound drinkeries starting with the Pub at Piper's Creek and Naked City, a place that sounds so damn productive that when Kemp heard about it, he insisted on being traded there immediately.
