We are excited about this event and hope you are as well. Its only a week away and we have some woody goodness in store for you. Chef Bobby is also coming up with some tasty treats in the kitchen to compliment the beers.

We have a cool event int the works for Saturday, December 17th, I can't give you details right now other than I hope you have an ugly sweater handy.

On a side note, we will be closed on both December 24th and 25 for Christmas, but reopen regular hours on Monday the 26th. We hope you enjoy a wonderful Holiday. Will we get snow this year? Also don't forget to stop by Bottleworks and pick up craft beers for the beer lover on your Christmas list.

Bigwood is just around the corner

We hope that your Turkey Day is a good one! We would like take this time to say thank you for your support over the years. Without your love of fine malt beverages and your patronage we would not be able to do all that we do. With that we have decided to post a few of the beers that are going to be available at BigWood, Your Welcome! We know with the last few festivals we held all the info in and that was not the right choice, so we thought this would be a great time to provide you with information...Knowing after much time with your family you will need a distraction.

We are packing in the events...

Tonight at 6pm, Alaskan Brewer's night...Don't expect to see Amber, but so expect Baltic Porter, IPA, Perseverance( their 25th Anniversary), Oatmeal Stout, and a handful of others. If that isn't enough we have another event on Thursday.

Awhile back we got a few J.W. Lee's Wooden Barrel Casks in. With the changing of the season we have decided that it was time to pour a couple of them. On Thursday, November 10 we will be pouring two of them, a Port and a Lagavulin, both these are 2010 vintages. This will be a fun night.

Next Monday, November 14th is a very special night with Firestone Walker. Its the release of their Anniversary Beer, Firestone XV. We will be pouring one 1/6 barrel, starting at 7pm, don't expect it to last very long. We have Parabola, 13 and 14 available in the bottle and for on site consumption only. This is a not to be missed event.

On Tuesday, November 15th, we along with many other establishments around the country will host : Coast to Coast a toast to Vanberg and Dewulf importers of fine Belgian Beers like Scaldis, Saison Dupont, Moinette and Witkap to name a few

Addtionally our much anticipated Wood Aged beer event is shaping up nicely. Look for some special beers from New Belgium, HUB Brouwer's 6th anniversary, Great Divide Oak aged Yeti, Nectar Black Xantus, The Bruery 3 French Hens, and many more...Trust us you will not be dissappointed. It all starts Thursday, December 8th at 11am when the doors open.

Firestone Walker XV Release...

The much anticipated release of Firestone's anniversary beer, on draft, here in Seattle will be on Monday, November 14th. Bottles of XV will also be for sale starting at 11am at Bottleworks. I imagine there will be a limited number that can be purchased per person. This is one of those beers that I anticipate will only get better with age.
As I am sure most of you are aware, this is a rare beer, and even more rare on draft. We will be tapping one small keg at 7pm. There will be a few other Firestone Beers on draft, adn we are also working on getting a special IPA, one that we had in the past, but nothing has been confirmed yet. From the sounds of it Brewmaster Matt Brynildson had a lot of fun making this beer, he calls in the winemakers from around Paso Robles and has them help with the blending. The first Anniversary beer was made for Firestone's 10th anniversary, and one has been released every year since. Here's a link with more information about the blending process, and a little history as well. We look forward to this night with much anticipation. If XV isn't enough for you we also have Parabola, 13, and 14 available in the bottle for consumption on site, no to go sales here.

Don't forget our other events as well:

Tuesday, November 8th, Alaskan Brewer's night, we will be pouring their IPA, Perseverance Anniversary Ale, Smoked Porter and others.

Tuesday, November 15th, Coast to Coast Toast, a toast to the Importers Vanberg and DeWulf importers of fine Belgian Beers like: Scaldis, Dupont, Foret, and Moinette to name a few.
