We hope that all of you awake daily and prepare your spirit for what surely will be a week( a brewer's week i.e 10days) to remember. We have a few events during Seattle Beer Week:
Friday, May 11th @ 11 am...Back in Black Stout Fest. We will be pouring 35 or more delicious dark malt beverages, including, a few Firestone Beers, Nectar Black Xantus, Green Flash Double Stout '10, Great Divide Espresso Yeti, Evil Twin Yin Imperial Stout and Avery Mephistopheles to name a few.
Monday, May 14th @ 6pm Big Sky, Ride the Bull night. It is exactly like it sounds, we will have a mechanical bull in the middle of the floor and you will be able to ride it if you so desire. Look for cans of Ipa along with a few draft beers. We encourage you to wear your best western getup.
Tuesday, May 15th @6pm Beer and Burger Battle. 5 breweries are tasked with creating a Burger with a beef patty as the base, and bring 4-5 beers to go along with it. The winner is determined by sales. Reigning Champs Fremont Brewing take on challengers, 21st Amendment, New Belgium, Hair of the Dog, and Black Raven. We look forward to this event every year.
Wednesday, May 16th Sean Paxton collaborates with our Chef Bob and Firestone Walker for an evening not to be missed titled 'Now for Something Completely Different." 10 courses, with at least 12 beers. David Walker will be on hand as well. Sean and Bob have some great ideas for this English Pub Food meets Brouwer's Cafe food.
