Seattle Beer Week Starts Tomorrow
Seattle Beer Week is here! In just over 24 hours, things will kick off with the very first event, the Elliott Bay IPA Feast at Elliott Bay Brewing in West Seattle starting at 11:00AM. Personally, I'll be at work, so I can't make it to that one. The first event I will likely attend is the 5:30PM Seattle Beer Week kickoff at Maritime Pacific Brewing Company - brewer of this year's official Seattle Beer Week beer. After that, I may head over to Brouwer's Cafe for 'Seattle Beer Week Kickoff - Stop 2', starting at 7:00PM.
On Friday, I won't get the chance to attend many events besides my monthly homebrew club meeting. This month is our annual 'swap meet', where members can swap/trade/sell brewing equipment. I also plan to bring a few beers an ciders to trade or just share with my fellow brewers.
Saturday will keep me busy too with Beer & D'oh Nuts at 99 Bottles in Federal Way at 10:00AM, followed by Keggs & Eggs with American Brewing at the Brave Horse Tavern starting at 11:00AM. Later, I'm thinking of attending the World Class Brewer's Reunion at Pike Brewing Company, which begins at 2:00PM.
Do you have your strategy for Seattle Beer Week planned out yet? With an average of 12 or more events each day, you're sure to find something you'll enjoy. So rest up tonight, for tomorrow Seatlle Beer Week begins!
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
