Blue Dot Sea

 


Hood Canal, WA

A Little Kelp for Our Shellfish Friends

Blue Dot Sea Farms operates a 5-acre shellfish and seaweed farm located off Hood Head, Washington. Located in the northern part of Hood Canal, one of the main basins of Puget Sound, their site benefits from an excellent flux of natural phytoplankton, ample tidal currents and a proven capacity to support multiple shellfish species and seaweeds, including kelps.

They operate under a lease with the Washington Department of Natural Resources and a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, both of which have been in place for many years. Their unique oyster, the “Indigo,” is marketed exclusively to fine restaurants by our close friends at Baywater Shellfish Company.

 

 

 

 

In April of 2024, we released Batch One of Salacia, a saison brewed with Sugar Kelp from Blue Dot Sea Farms.  Salacia is a bright saison with a soft lingering tartness of a Myer Lemon. Brewed with Sugar Kelp from the Hood Canal, the Salacia presents a unique minerality and body with subtle layers of umami, salinity and aromas of a spring ocean breeze.

Brewed to improve our local marine ecosystem we’re donating a $1 of every pint of Salacia to the Puget Sound Restoration Fund.   https://restorationfund.org.
