Brewery Reclaims Ocean Heritage in Bar Top

Basically brined in salt water, these beams are heavy and still carry some of the ocean’s bottom on their skins. Shells, sand, spots where decayed chain rotted away, colors of iron and bits of rocks defiantly cling to their sides. This, my friends, spells love. Running my hands along the rough surface, I could feel the ocean’s hold.

-Sherry, Diamond Knot Craft Brewing, a Pacific Northwest Timbers customer

 

We love when our customers really GET IT, and are as excited about our lumber as we are!  Recently Sherry, the “Chief Storyteller” and “All-Around Octopus” at Diamond Knot Craft Brewing, made a visit to our sister company, Pacific Northwest Timbers in Port Townsend, WA, looking for a new bar top with an old soul.  Sherry walked away with one of our 12X24 “Big Sticks” out of Port of Stockton for the Diamond Knot’s Mukilteo, WA Alehouse, and came back for one of our Ship Timbers for the bar in their Brew Pub in Mountlake Terrace, WA.

Diamond Knot is named for a ship that wrecked off the coast of Washington in 1947, much like the Canadian Exporter that took our Ship Timbers down to the ocean floor in 1921.  You can read about Sherry’s experience finding her bar tops and falling in love with the Ship Timbers here, in the Diamond Knot Blog.

Our remaining ship timbers, salvaged from the wreck of the Canadian Exporter, are in the following dimensions:

18X18X20′ (PNT) 20X20X35’4″ (PNT) 18X18X24′ (CRL)
