Whao do we have a busy October planned...


First off next Wednesday, October 17th @ 6pm we welcome Speakeasy from San Francisco back to the market.  There will be a brewery representative on hand to answer your questions.  We will pour 8 draft options from them including, Big Daddy IPA, Double Daddy IPA, Butchertown Black Ale and XV Triple IPA to name a few.  We hope that your join us in welcoming Speakeasy. 


A week later on Wednesday, October 24th @6pm we will be the first ones in Washington to release everybody's favorite Holiday Ale Lagunitas Brown Shugga!  It's back after a year hiatus due to lack of brewing capacity.  We are really excited to have this beer back.  We will also be pouring Hop Stoopid, Undercover Shutdown, and one other delicious offering yet to be decided upon.  Please mark your calender and plan on joining us for this event.

We are also working on having Multiple Halloween Parties.  We don't have all the details but on Saturday, October 27th we are planning an event with Fremont Brewing, 21st Amendment and Laurelwood, we will have a DJ starting at 7 and the brewery representatives will be judging a costume party at about 10:30.  Rumor has it that the grand prize will be a kegerator ( think badass stickered, and  brewery janitor certified, not clean,  polished and just off the showroom floor) .  Not a bad reason to dress up and join us.  Look for a few special rarer beers at this event.

To keep you in the Halloween spirit on Halloween, Wednesday, October 31 we will be hosting yet another Halloween event.  Pirates (Gigantic) vs Ninjas (New Belgium) vs Unicorns (Big Time) !  Dress up as one of the above to show your support for the Brewery representing there will be prizes and giveaways, we just haven't hammered out all the details just yet as to what we will be giving away.

Now if that doesn't give you something to look forward to, you my friend are not in to having fun!

Coffee Beer Fest at Burgundian.

We will be closed tomorrow, Saturday October 6th, for a Private party.  Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.  However,  Burgundian located at 2253 N 56th St (in Tangletown) is having a very Seattle centric festival, Coffee Beer Fest.  22 coffee beers, 5 coffee craft cocktails, and a coffee infused menu, all the fun starts at 10am when the doors open.

Here's a few of the beers that we will be pouring: 

Big Time Marzen Oktoberfest W/ Ethipia Mordecofe (5.8%)
Fremont Dark Star Imperial Oatmeal Stout W/ Ganesha Tony’s Coffee (8%)
       (We included our Ganesha Espresso Blend in the Dark Star Imperial Stout.  This blend is comprised of three of our highest quality coffees; the base component (80%) is grown by the Pacas family on Finca San Joaquin in El Salvador, the fruitiness comes from the (10%) Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Konga Natural (see above), and the complex spice & acidity comes from (10%) Kenya Kiamwangi AA.  This blend rotates throughout the year, depending on which coffees are in season, but we always roast it to a medium level, which brings out a lot of sweetness, without masking the individual character of each coffee.)
Fort George Thundermuck Stout W/Thundermuck Indonesian Beans (9%)
 HUB Brouwer’s 6th Anniversary Stumptown & Mexican Chocolate (9.5%)
       (Originally, made for Brouwer's, we took base Brouwer's Imprerial Stout blended it with Barrel aged Brouwer's Imperial   Stout aka "Army of Darkness" and aged it on 2lbs of Stumptown coffee and 2 lbs of Mexican Chocolate.)
Gigantic The City Hasn't Slept for Days Imperial Black Saison W/Cold Pressed House Blend from Portland Roasting(7.2%)

Naked City Sudden Impact Coffee IPA W/Dillanos Coffee (6%)  
Great Divide Oaked Aged Espresso Yeti W/Pablo’s Espresso (9.5%)

Cocktails:
Midnight Express: Hot coffee, Walnut infused Cognac, Simple Syrup topped with Fresh Whip Cream.
Coffee Cocktail: Port Wine, Cognac, One whole egg and simple syrup.
Brewers Breakfast: Sake, 100% Corn Whiskey, Galliano, and garnished with 8 Honey Nut Cherrios.

We look forward to seeing you at Burgundian.

We will be closed this Saturday, October 6th for a Private Party.  We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause you.


Next Wednesday, October 10 at 6pm we will be tapping Hair of the Dog/De Proef Flanders Fred, Hair of the Dog Fred, and Bockor Publican Lambic (the lambic sourced in the Fred Flanders Blend).  This will give you the opportunity to taste all the components and blend your own version of Fred Flanders.
