The independent consumer guide to beer product dating.
That's the state, not the district. (After all, they can't drink coffee all the time, can they?)
Olympia is owned by Pabst Brewing Company, and uses Pabst's dating scheme.
In late 1996, Redhook switched from a completely incomprehensible dating scheme to a Best Taste By date on the label. The date isn't printed, however; it's punched as a series of of small pinpricks in the label. Weird, huh? The change in dating philosophies may be due to the influence of Anheuser-Busch, who own 25% of Red Hook.
Redhook's product line includes Redhook Ale, Blackhook Porter, Ballard's Bitter, Redhook Hefe-Weizen (formerly known as Wheathook?), Redhook ESB, Redhook Rye, and their seasonal brew, Winterhook. Redhook's manufacturer number is 21242.
