St. Brigid's Brewery has been running about a year now, as a three-barrel production brewery on the farm of Tom and Whitney Wytko, outside Moses Lake. As of August 30, they are pouring pints and more in a taproom in the downtown area. An outdoor deck in the back looks out over the lake and the setup is relaxed and comfortable.
In addition to filling growlers and mini-growlers, St. Brigid's offers pigs for beer to go. The "pig", a large beer container with an internal bladder that expands to mainain pressure and keep air away from the beer, is more popular in this part of the state. I first saw them at Ice Harbor in Kennewick, and heard that Rocky Coulee sells pigs, too. Tom pulled out an empty pig to demonstrate how they do it here.
These pigs are made by a company called Quoin in Boulder, CO. founded by one Mike Lowe. Whose brother is a former mayor of Moses Lake. Seems like Colorado is coming up with beer innovations a lot these days (thinking of the 22-oz aluminum can Base Camp brought to Tacoma, the new ideas in cans at Oskar Blues, etc.) Slainte', St. Brigid!
