You weren’t wondering what IHB fans are like but we’re going to show you anyway. Devin Miller really likes Iron Horse Brewery. We didn’t ask him why but we did as him if he prefers Star Wars or Star Trek.
The Horse's Mouth
Making our thoughts known via letters, words and pictures, rife with typos and references to tacos.
When you work for a brewery you have access to a copious amount of beer. Over the 5 years I have been at Iron Horse I have acquired a glorious collection of brews. I very well could have built a separate house to store my collection, but I didn’t. That’s stupid. Instead I have decided… Read more »
Indie: cool short-hand for independent, right? Yes, and more. Indie implies a bit of a could-give-a-shit view of what is practical, popular and wise. Indie is a freedom of choice. The early punk rockers didn’t consult with their producer and record labels to determine what kind of music they should be making, they didn’t have… Read more »
Chef KC loves the dough.
It’s Earth Day which means today everyone celebrates how beautiful the earth is, discusses the many ways humans are destroying the Earth, some children plant a few trees, you recycle a can and feel good about yourself and then tomorrow everything goes back to normal. The brewing industry uses a lot of stuff. Water, crops… Read more »
Bars are the ultimate escape. People go to hang out with friends, go on dates, watch sporting events, or get away from their wife….um wait…. Whatever the reason, bars are the best. From sports bars to wine bars, pubs, taverns, theme bars, there’s a bar to suit every interest. In my previous job I… Read more »
At first the term “vegan beer” may seem unnecessary. Afterall, beer is made with four main ingredients, water, malts, hops and yeast. Those four ingredients are all vegan friendly but there is some debate or rather confusion as to what the definition of vegan is or what beers are considered vegan. A lot of the… Read more »
April 7, 1933, something really neat happened. Let’s let Wikipedia tell you what it was. The beginning of the end of Prohibition in the United States occurred as a result of the Cullen–Harrison Act and its signing into law by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 23, 1933. Upon signing the legislation, Roosevelt made his… Read more »
Last month we announced that Quilter’s Irish Death would be available on draft at Century Link Field (Washington Craft House – Section 109). As a Craft Brewer in the Pacific Northwest, we feel very lucky that we have local sport teams (concessionaires) that understand the value in offering what the consumer demands while at either… Read more »
Growing up my Easter traditions were fairly similar to anyone else’s. Spending time with family, dying hard-boiled eggs, lots of candy, and the wondrous Easter Egg Hunt. As I get older it gets harder and harder to be able to make it home every year for Easter. This has left me wondering, what do I… Read more »
Perhaps you don’t care about why not. Maybe you shouldn’t. However, I am going to attempt to convince you that you should. Iron Horse is running out of beer right now and it will be felt all over, but it will be felt in the worst way by our own pub. I won’t digress into… Read more »
“Everything in moderation, including moderation” -Oscar Wilde St. Patrick’s Day is one of the best holidays for a reason. The food is incredible, the beers are even better, but more so than anything, it’s the final nail in the coffin of that fad diet you started as a new year’s resolution. It’s one of the… Read more »
St. Patrick’s day is approaching which means a hangover is approaching. I am lucky that for whatever reason I rarely get hangovers but St. Paddy Day gets me every time. Even though there isn’t a drop of Irish blood in me St. Paddy Day has got to be one of my favorite times a year…. Read more »
I’ll admit it. I like being part of something bigger than myself, probably because I am inherently selfish and need that bigger thing to keep my feet planted and ego in check. So, when it came time to start planning the second installment of the st. paddy day .5 k, we knew we wanted to… Read more »

Handshakes. For a working person they’re a part of daily life. Most people probably don’t think anything of them. By most people I mean most men. Handshakes get weird with women. Here are the weirdest things that happen when women try to shake hands with men. The Noodle Hand – I have watched a man… Read more »
Connie, who controls our content and secretly wants to be a pony, has been asking me for blogs for a while now. Unfortunately, I had little to write about that seems relevant or interesting to you, the craft reader (I so want this to become a term used to describe certain literary enthusiasts). You’re most… Read more »

Let me save you the trouble. I know I am an idiot for adding food. I know I am a jerk for banning dogs from the pub. I know that it is a stupid business move to piss off our local bars and restaurants as well as our own customers and their dogs. If I… Read more »
