It is almost here! What you ask? The balancing act that is Seattle Beer Week, 10 days of celebration in honor of the great beer culture here in this city. It all kicks off tomorrow at Elysian Brewing at 6pm. Our first event, Back in Black Stoutfest, starts Friday morning at 11 am when we open. I can assure you that we have been planning for this event and will have over 40 stouts on draft for your drinking pleasure. Here are a handful of the breweries we will have beers from Driftwood, Avery, Fremont, Black Raven, Port, Nectar, Firestone Walker, Emilliese, Dogfish Head, Boneyard, and many more. We can assure you this is a not to be missed event. We hope to see you here.
We'd like to take this opportunity to tell you about an event, on Saturday, May 12th, at our new bar, Burgundian, located at 2253 N. 56th St in the Tangletown area of town. Its a 5 course, $65 beer dinner with our Chef Ryan and Laurelwood starting at 7pm. You can purchase tickets through brown paper tickets.
During Seattle Beer Week at times we will be doing things out of the ordinary. We will not be offering Happy Hour throughout the 10 days. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you. We will return to regular happy hour at the conclusion of Seattle Beer Week. However, throughout the entire Seattle Beer Week we will be running a Boilermaker Special with Four Roses Yellow Label, add a shot of Four Roses Yellow label to any beer for $6 dollars. As if all the beer weren't decadent enough.
We will be closed the entire day on Wednesday, May 16th so that we can set up for the evenings 10 course dinner with the Homebrew Chef Sean Paxton. Again we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
We thank you in advance for your support throughout the years and over the next "week!" We will also be hosting:
Monday, May 14th 6-11 Big Sky "Ride the Bull" event...its exactly what it sounds like, we will have a mechanical bull taking up a lot of the downstairs. We will start setting up for this event by removing all the tables from downstairs at 3pm. Wear your western gear and get ready to get bucked!
Tuesday, May 15th @6pm Everybody's favorite, Beer and Burger Battle. If you are unfamiliar with this event, the idea is simple, 5 breweries compete to see you can build the raddest burger and bring the best beer lineup. This year reigning Champs Fremont defend their title against contenders, 21st Amendment, New Belgium, Black Raven and Hair of the Dog. This is always a great event.
Wednesday, May 16th @ 6pm The Homebrew Chef /Firestone Walker ticketed event 10 course meal. Again we will be closed all day for this event. There might be one or two tickets left to this event.
Thursday, May 17th @11 am Sour Beer Fest. This is exactly what it sounds like we are replacing almost all of our taps with Sour Beer. This is a not to be missed event with lots of brewers on hand and some of the best sour beers available. Again we have been hanging on to beers from to name a few but not all, New Belgium, Cantillion, Russian River, Tilquin, Bocker, Petrus, and many more. We anticipate that this will be a great day. Again we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support in advance.
