About Bushnell Craft Brewing Company

 

We are a brewery that happens to have a tap room that happens to serve great food.

OUR STORY

THE DISCOVERY…

Back in 2010 while running a liquor store Kristin and I owned in Longmont Colorado called Mother’s Liquor, I bought a home brewing kit from a little home brew store nearby called The Bald Brewer. The intention was to brew some beer for fun in the back room of the liquor store and maybe give away a few pints out the back door to our friends in the area. I never ended up having any time after all at the liquor store to do anything with the kit whatsoever so the kit sat, complete with all the ingredients to make a Stout, in the back room until we sold the liquor store in the summer of 2011. The kit ended up in our garage back in Chandler, Arizona and eventually on the moving truck when we relocated to the Seattle area in 2011. For two more years the kit sat in my garage in Snoqualmie Washington without even much notice.

In the fall of 2012 while sharing a pitcher (or several) of Mack n Jack African Amber Ale at The Joker Pub in Issaquah Washington, with my good friend Dwight Farrington, we got to talking about home brewing. Dwight had done a ton of brewing back in the day and nearly went pro. The stories were phenomenal and had me absolutely interested and enthralled. I remembered I had a home brew kit at home along with a turkey fryer and a pot and we, in our drunken state, decided we were going to go back to my house and brew that Stout that had been sitting in my garage for quite some time. We didnt brew that day but we did brew a couple weeks later.

After one brew session in my garage I was hooked. Over the next several weeks the passion grew to obsession. I spent nearly day and night researching the art of brewing, reading every article by John Palmer I could find. Within days I was going from brewing my first batch on an old turkey fryer gas heated single pot system to designing and building my first “real” home brewery with all the bells and whistles.

I started searching for kegs to convert to keggles and couldnt find any locally in the Seattle area. I called Kempton who was living in Flagstaff Arizona and finishing up his college days at NAU. Kempton, was basically focusing on hosting parties with his Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE) brothers and building his screen printing and apparel company and had plenty of access to used kegs. Kempton boxed two kegs up and sent them to me in Washington.

I had discovered The Electric Brewery website and was committed to creating an all electric home brewing system and the kegs from Kempton were the first key pieces I needed. I also had discovered Brewer’s Hardware and all the amazing TriClamp fittings and pieces they sold and was ordering parts left and right. Suffice it to say I had a package coming from Amazon or Brewer’s Hardware or Ebay or Northern Brewer etc. nearly every day of the week. I was also spending a lot of time down at Larry’s Brew Supply in Kent Washington, these guys have been doing this for years and were incredibly helpful. My favorite quote from them as I was down there bombarding them with technical questions was, “just remember even if you #@!#@ up the recipe, you still make beer.”

 

THE RECRUITMENT…

Kennedy jumped in and started to assist and build out a Brewtroller to power and automate the heating and brewing process. We were ordering parts from oscsys as well to build this crazy thing. By the fourth batch I was brewing all grain recipes using my newly designed and built all electric 3 vessel brewing machine. Kennedy had completed the custom designed circuit panel and brewtroller and we were in business. Speaking of business, I knew at this moment that this would be the next big Bushnell family business and I needed Kempton to move to Washington to make it all happen.

It wasn’t long before I had convinced Kempton to come up and brew a few batches with me. His first batch didn’t go so well and he blew up a few heating elements on the brewing system and we had to discard the entire grain bed, couldn’t have metal flakes in our first beer together. The science and artistry of it all already had him intrigued. I think he knew from the first brew day that this was going to be his life’s work. The next day he rounded up some new heating elements and did it all again, this time with complete success. We made the beautiful American Amber we still brew today aptly titled ‘Bofuss’. It is a reference we came up with to affectionately refer to the beer both he and I, ‘Bofuss’, brewed in our garage that day.

By the summer of 2013, Kempton had moved to Washington and we were brewing 2 to 3 times a week perfecting our home brewing craft. Kempton would brew often while I was at work and we would age it and then keg it into corny kegs and give it the neighbors to dispose of by drinking it. We couldn’t possibly drink all the beer we were brewing at home all by ourselves. We were making some top notch home brew beers and recipes though. For Halloween, 2013, we setup two stations outside our house. the first station was for the kids and we had candy galore, the second station was for the parents and we had 2 taps on our newly created jockey box, one serving our home made Dirty Shirley Blonde Ale and one serving our home made Dunkadelic Milk Stout. The neighborhood loved it and I must say we had a great time serving beer to the trick-or-treating parents.
