James Weddle, Beer Buyer at the Cordata Food Co-op

Welcome to the Bellingham co-op beer blog.  I’ve been around the food coop for 15 years, six of that as the beer dept. buyer/manager.   Three years downtown and three years at the Cordata store.  I am passionate about offering some of the best beer in Bellingham. I have tasted just about every beer we’ve ever carried so don’t ever hesitate to ask my opinion on the many options we have in our store.
