Tacoma Rescue Mission Benefit + A Very Ugly Ottermas “Sweater” Party!

We’ve partnered with the Tacoma Rescue Mission to bring you the very best Very Ugly Ottermas “Sweater” Party Event!  From 12/14-12/23 we will be accepting your warm clothing and non-perishable food donations that will go directly towards our very own Tacoma Rescue Mission.  So, clean out those pantries, use up those coupons to gather up the foods for those who need ’em!  Clean out your closets and bring us what you no longer wear or need!  We’ll make sure it gets to those who can use it most!

On 12/23 we will host a super awesome ugly “sweater” party!  We will have raffles, 50% of sales to go to the TRM!  And we’ll award the three worst sweaters!

Live music by Benni James!  Check out his work on Spotify!

Oh yeah, we’ve got our cute yet “ugly” sweatshirts and raglan baseball t’s for sale…  perfectly acceptable for our party!

Bring your stuff….  wear ugly stuff….  win awesome stuff!



Veteran’s Day Fisher House Benefit


As a Veteran owned brewery we are passionate about giving back to the military community.  On this Veteran’s Day we are choosing to support the Fisher House of Joint Base Lewis McChord.  Fisher House believes in providing families a comforting, secure, and nurturing environment while receiving care at Madigan Army Medical Center.

So, how can we help?  Easy peasy!

On 11/11/2016 from 6-10pm:

The Fisher House is currently in need of the following items and by donating them you will receive a rafftle ticket:

Laundry Soap (who doesn’t love clean clothes?)

Fabric Softener (and soft clean clothes at that?)

Individually wrapped snacks (don’t we all stress eat?)

We will donate 50% of raffle ticket sales, and 10% of tasting rooms sales, during the hours of 6-10pm to the Fisher House.

So, what are we raffling off?  Glad you asked! Gift cards and beer swag, friends!  You know what?  The holidays are upon us and everyone loves the gift of beer swag!

So, drink up! We firmly believe that drinking for a cause tastes soooo much better!

Mark your calendars!

There is a whole lotta fun stuff going on around here at OOBC!  We have some really exciting events coming right around the corner.

First up, on 9/28 the folks from Bloodworks Northwest will park their mobile blood unit in front of the brewery from 1-7pm.  Although they want donations of all blood types, they are currently running low on Type O (both positive and negative).  You can just stop by or sign up online at https://schedule.bloodworksnw.org/DonorPortal/Schedule/TimeSelect.aspx

For all your effort, every donor will receive a $5 voucher for Odd Otter Brewing Company AND a $5 for the Matador, good to use starting the following day.  Hey, why not grab take-out from Matador and come to OOBC on Thursday for…

The Tacoma Rangers Takeover!  That’s right, the Tacoma Rangers are taking over the tasting room on 9/29 starting at 6:30pm.  If you didn’t know who they are, the Rangers are our very own Hurling and Gaelic Football Club.  They are bringing with them the gals from Femme Fianna Roller Derby and That Irish Guy, who will be performing some Irish tunes for your listening enjoyment from 7:30-10pm.  Let’s all throw back some tasty craft beers and dance a little jig!


If that’s not enough, we’re releasing a brand new beer (our White Coffee Brown Ale) and we’ll be continuing our Thirsty Thursday Ladies’ Pint Night. All day and all night, ladies get Happy Hour pricing every Thursday. Thirsty Thursday has never been this fun!



Poppa’s Back

Poppa Otter dissappeared for a little while but he has returned to sit next to Momma Otter in the taproom. Every year around this time he makes his appearence in all of his tasty and bacon-y deliciousness.

Of course we are talking about Poppa Otter’s Bacon Breakfast Stout. Our Breakfast Stout is a full-bodied oatmeal stout that contains candied bacon. The bacon adds a smokey underlying component that is perfectly paired with *gasp* more bacon!

Poppa Otter’s Bacon Breakfast Stout, it is the perfect way to round out your breakfast. For the true “Grand Slam”, follow up with Momma Otter’s Pancake Porter. Now that is the breakfast of champions!


The Dark Side …. of the Otter. New Beer Release!

Dark Side

It’s that season: the season for snow and delicious Winterface Holiday Ale. the season for the much-awaited Star Wars release, and the season for a new Odd Otter beer!

To celebrate the season, we invite you to taste the power of The Dark Side …. of the Otter with you. It’s happening. Soon. Very soon. It’s happening on Friday December 18th at 7pm at the Tasting Room.

It’s dark. It’s divine. And it’s not a porter, not a stout. This beer … this beer is a Schwarzbier. It’s a lager. It’s fantastic. And it’s dark, reaching out to the Vader in all of us.

You cannot resist the power of the Dark Side … of the Otter!

New Coconut Chai Tea Blend

Owen, our Head Brewer, spent the day with Tobin Ropes, co-owner of Mad Hat Tea Company in Tacoma designing a new amazing coconut chai blend for our Coconut Chai Porter. Compared to our previous tea the new blend presents more coconut, cardamom, and cinnamon aromas and flavors compared to our previous tea.



We will be brewing it on Friday and expect it to be ready in two weeks. For those who can’t wait to sample the tea, he has it available in Mad Hat Tea room.IMG_1147
