Friday August 21st - Russian River Brewing Night


In 1997, Russian River Brewing Company (RRBC) was founded by Korbel Champagne Cellars in Guerneville , California . Vinnie Cilurzo was hired as the Brewmaster. At the Great American Beer Festival in 1999, RRBC and Vinnie were awarded "Small Brewing Company of the Year" and "Small Brewing Company Brewmaster of the Year". In 2002, Korbel decided to leave the beer business and sold the brewery to Vinnie and his wife, Natalie. Now located in Santa Rosa , California

In 2009, on Friday August 21st, Vinnie will take the long trek up to Seattle, where he will host a brewers night at Brouwer's Cafe. He will be on hand to discuss, and drink his award winning brews.

Russian River beers on tap for the night will be: Blind Pig, Consecration, Damnation, Deviation,Pliny the Elder, Publication, and Temptation.

The fun starts around 6pm.
