Jake Silva - Brewing Artist

,
Jake Silva was introduced to art at a young age by his grandmother, an artist.  "Drawing and painting have always interested me, so my grandmother would show me tips on how to paint, and she expressed interest in my art," said Jake. He has also taken several art classes in college to improve his skills.  Jake uses his creative talents in brewing beer as well. Jake, Skagit Farm to Pint, and Skagit PUD unite water conservation, breweries, and art to raise funds for the non-profit Viva Farms.

Rain Barrel Competition - Farmstrong Brewing

Did you know that beer is 95% water?  Skagit Farm to Pint has united water conservation, breweries, art, and Viva Farms altogether to create the Skagit Farm to Pint Roadshow Rain Barrel Project!  Skagit PUD donated and delivered the rain barrels to the participating breweries before the beginning of the Skagit Farm to Pint Roadshow, artists painted the rain barrels, and Viva Farms will be displaying the rain barrels at the Port of Skagit after the Roadshow ends.

Good Beer, it’s in the Water

Beer is 95% water, and here in the Skagit Valley, our breweries have been able to thrive thanks to reliable access to good-tasting, clean water. “You may assume water is just water,” said Kevin Tate, community relations manager for Skagit Public Utility District, “but the quality of water used in brewing beer will make a big difference in the final product.”
