Owner-managers Patrick Raymond and Glenn Jansen have brewed beer together for nearly seventeen years, perfecting recipes and techniques. Patrick recently retired into his long-held desire to start a microbrewery after a successful career as a manager in forestry for over 30 years. He has lived on the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas in Washington State for 35 years. Glenn Jansen moved to Port Townsend 3 years ago to pursue his passion for brewing beer after 36 years operating his own business as a graphic designer in Seattle.
Environmentally Conscious Practices
Discovery Bay Brewing is proud of its commitment to environmentally friendly practices, recycling water used in brewing for watering landscaping and constructing a bio-swale for storm runoff. Spent grain is collected by a local farmer to compost and use as chicken feed.
Longtime residents of Port Townsend will recognize the tap room tables and chairs, which originated in Port Townsend’s Town Tavern on Water Street. The tables have been beautifully restored and will provide many more years of service to Port Townsend residents and visitors, resulting in a tap room that is both historically rich and contemporary.
