Origin of Wet Head Brewery

On February 21, 1893, an Act of the Washington State Legislature changes the name of Slaughter in south King County to Auburn. Originally intended to remember Lt. William A. Slaughter (d. 1856) who was killed in the Indian War of 1856 near the town site, the name is considered by both new and old residents as somewhat embarrassing. A runner from a local hotel met trains with a cry of, "This way to Slaughter House!" The new name honored Auburn, New York, another prominent hop farming area. In the 1890s, hops used to make beer were the principal crop of the Valley. Instead of naming our brewery after Lt. William Slaughter, we decided to name our first beer after him, Slaughter Amber Ale. Needing a less embarrassing name for our brewery, we settled on Wet Head. A fitting solute to Western Washington and our weather. We've heard others imagine a different vision when they hear the name, but that's up to you.
