Gypsy Brewing

October 9, 2014

Bushido Brewery is brewing again! It's been nearly a year since the brewery was packed up in storage and I left LA to travel. Since then I've drank a lot of beer but haven't brewed any myself. Now with the help of various brew on premises (BOP) partners, Bushido Brewery is brewing again. Last month I did the first gypsy batch in Seattle. Today I am brewing in Victoria BC. Stay tuned to the blog for pictures!

Second Anniversary

January 7, 2013

Today is our second annivarsary! Our first beer was brewed on this day in 2011 and there are still a few bottles in the back of the cellar.

Instead, we'll celebrate by enjoying some excellent brews from London craft breweries. Kampai!
