Join us to celebrate this release with a dram of Westland’s latest Cask Exchange whiskey alongside a pint of Feather Weather Coffee Stout, aged in Westland casks, while the keg lasts.
Westland’s Cask Exchange is a series of single malt whiskey bottlings driven by demand for casks by Washington brewers. Instead of selling these casks to local breweries, we loan casks to like-minded brewers from our region. We offer no requirement for what type of beer fills these casks—only for them to be returned after use. Beer finishes are far from novel, but this program isn't about being unique, it's about forging meaningful partnerships and making something together that couldn't have existed before.
