Due to the Bush Creek East Fire complex, we are on evacuation from the brewery as of August 18, 2023.
The photos here show the section of this fire which sparked up on the hillside just above us, south-east of the farm near the trail to Mt Baldy. The other side of the ridge is part of the Squilax Mountain section of the same fire.
Our sheep have been safely evacuated, and we hope the baby osprey has learned to fly in a hurry. Sadly we had to leave the chickens and the barn cats, but we have all confidence the cats will go to the swamp they already hunt in and be safe.
We are still delivering beer to our licensee accounts through the warehouse, but will not be selling growlers or doing any of the farmers markets.
We do not have any information about the state of the farm and brewery at this time, but will keep folks updated.
If anyone needs support right now, it's our fire services and their support staff. Send them food and love if you can, and if they tell you to evacuate, do it. Stay safe everyone.
