Thanks for all your support!

We would like to take this time to say Thank you for all of your support throughout Seattle Beer Week.  We had a lot of fun and hope you did too.  We put a lot of effort in to making these events come together.  We plan on making our way through the kegs that we still have on hand from all of the events throughout the upcoming weeks.  After we make it through those we will get back to business as usual.  If your liver needs a reward for surviving the week, come on down and grab  a tasty beverage.   Now to announce a few upcoming events:

Next Monday,  May 28th at 6pm we will be tapping Crispin Oak Aged Marvin Cider made with Molasses, Honey, Dark Chocolate and Black Cherries fermented with a Stout Yeast.  We have yet to try this but we hear it is delicious. 

Next Thursday, May 31st at 6pm we will tap a couple Double Mountain Beers including their Seasonal Release ClusterF?!k a delicious IPA.  We hope you will join us and try this delicious adult beverage.

Seattle Beer Week is upon us!!!

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.

We have some projects in the pipeline....

We here at Brouwer's are excited to announce a couple of projects that we have been working on that involve local distilleries and wooden barrels.  We got this little beauty, from Woodinville Whiskey, pictured above and are currently seasoning it with the intention of making our own cocktail in it in the upcoming months.  Suggestions on what cocktail we should pour from it? 

A month or so ago we had an evening with Boundary Bay Brewing and Dry Fly Distillery which showcased Boundary's beer aged in Dry Fly Whiskey Barrels, from this evening an idea was hatched.  We went ahead and purchased some barrels and gave them to a handful of local breweries to age a beer, with the intention of releasing it at our Bigwood festival in December.  We gave barrels to Big Time, Elysian, Elliot Bay (Lake City), Black Raven and Fremont.   We look forward to having 5 unique beers available at Bigwood.
