A new winter warming Chai Brandywine release — celebrating a west coast collaboration with our friends from Chico Chai. Fair Trade Organic black tea and organic spices are hand-blended to create this spicy, aromatic tea, made in small batches, by hand in Chico, California. We then infuse this delightful spice blend into our custom-crafted apple brandy distilled from PNW organic apples (by the fine distillers at Admiralty Distillers and Skiprock Distillery). Available at the Cider Garden and at select markets. Send us your creative cocktail ideas with this bottle! Hoping you’re all keeping warm and well in the heart of winter. @chicochai @admiraltyjake @skiprock #finnriver #chaibrandywine Release event for this bottle in Portland next Monday @belmontstation! In Seattle at our farmers markets: Proctor and Edmonds on Saturday and Ballard and Capitol Hill on Sundays. Also at @soundandfog in Seattle. Sadly the wonderful folks at Chico Chai lost their house in the terrible fire there this Fall - you can support them here: https://www.gofundme.com/andy-amp-sarah-wildfire-victims. Sending love and care to all of the folks down there trying to recover.
Announcing the newest additions to our daily hot food offerings, served 3-7pm weekdays and 12-8pm weekends at Finnriver! House-made savory vegetable soups. And a pastry-wrapped baked cheese - featuring @mttownsendcreamery soft-ripened Cirrus - and a house fruit relish. These yummy options have now joined our daily bratwurst or vegan field roasts with @panedamorept buns and @midori.farm kraut and locally raised pork from @onestrawranch @eggandipork. By ‘house’ we mean the fabulous Finnriver foodmakers (@ray.willy @dulcegrasosalado, Rebecca and Kodi) who are working together in the farm kitchen on developing our daily menu - so come on over for a bite and check back in the new year for more! Meanwhile if y’all are in Chimacum and your belly is rumbling you’ve got all sorts of wonderful choices - with the famed pies at the classic Chimacum Cafe, the magical corner Farmstand and delicious deli case @chimacumcorner and coffee, baked delights, salads, wraps and more tasty eats at @therealfarmsreachcafe. All joined on the weekends at Finnriver with a fantastic array of local vendors @dentedbuoypizza @la_crepe_de_quimper and @hamahamaoysters. And with several organic farms and farmstands within skipping distance @reddogfarmchimacum @springrainfarm and then @kodamafarm @whitelotusfarm @solsticefamilyfarm and @shortsfamilyfarm all just down the road! I’m just saying...we grow-make-eat a whole lot of fabulous food here in Chimacum! #finnriver #finnriverfood #chimacum #eatinchimacum Thanks @dulcegrasosalado for the 📷
Winter solstice gifts to warm the spirit...We are always amazed to consider where our bottles end up and grateful to imagine how they are enjoyed. It’s a tremendous honor to craft something that our friends and neighbors and extended human family will drink! We do this with reverence for the earth and care for the community. And with hopes that sharing a glass of Finnriver will grow joyful kinship among people and deeper connections between humans and the land that sustains us. With thanks to @abbyjorgensen01! #finnriver
Lovely weekend on the Long Beach Peninsula with the fabulous folks at @adrifthotel and a delightful cider dinner at the @shelburnehotel. I’m always enchanted and amazed when I come here — this great big beach and vast wild ocean and the rad Discovery trail through the dunes and then discoveries like this beautiful cove. Thanks to the @pickledfishrestaurant for the best view and fantastic food and for making space for Finnriver on your menu! #finnriver #shelburnehotel #adrifthotel #ciderdinnerbythesea #longbeachpeninsula
