- Sun Liquor, which recently expanded its production, is pulling its famous eggnog from shelves because the rich drink is too thick to pour; customers can get a refund or replacement. Meanwhile, Capitol Hill’s Sol Liquor — formerly Sun Liquor Lounge — is selling Sun Liquor’s sought-after holiday drink at the appropriate thickness from December 21 through 25.
- Woodinville’s Dirty Bucket Brewing and its next-door neighbor, Locust Cider, are merging, becoming Locust Brewing Co. by the first of the year. Dirty Bucket fans can scoop up discounted brewery merch all weekend as the owners phase out the brand.
- Starting December 23, Elysian Brewing is temporarily closing its Capitol Hill pub for renovations. The pub should reopen in the spring with a more modern design, new brewing equipment, an outdoor patio, and increased capacity.
- Sacramento is getting a Flatstick Pub location this spring thanks to a California company called Tipsy Putt, which is licensing the mini-golf beer bar from founders Sam and Andy Largent. The new pub will open in the spring.
