Redmond brewery to open Thursday

Juniper Brewing Co. to offer three beers to start

Juniper Brewing Co. plans to open its brewery and tasting room in Redmond on Thursday.

Curtis Endicott, co-owner of the brewery with Scott Lesmeister, said Juniper will release three beers to the public for its opening: an IPA, a black ale and a Belgian wit, or white beer, called The Milk Man. Brews will be available in pints and growlers, to start.

Endicott said about $100,000 has been invested in the two-barrel brewery at 1950 S.W. Badger Ave. The project has been underway since December 2012.

“We’re looking forward to opening the doors and letting people sample our product here,” he said. “It’s exciting, scary and overwhelming … but overall its going to be a lot of fun.”
