If you have been following us at all you know that Tuesday, March 12th at 6pm we will be hosting the Washington launch of pFriem Brewing. We are very excited about this event, and hope that you are planning on joining us. Haven't heard of this brewery? Here's a simple answer: Josh Pfriem is the Brewmaster and Owner, and is brewing up some amazing Belgian inspired beers, he's also a Washington native and very excited about launching his own beer here in Washington. We will be showcasing 7 of their offerings: Belgian Strong Dark, Belgian Strong Blonde, Blonde IPA, Belgian IPA, Super Saison, Belgian Stout and Mosaic Pale Ale.
All of you know, or should know that Hardliver Barleywine Fest is coming. All the fun starts on March 23rd at 11am when we open the doors. We are putting the finishing touches on the draftlist as I write this. We had hoped to have this done a week or so ago, and you know what they say about good intentions....We hope to have a preliminary list sooner than later, and apologize for not getting it out sooner.
We are also in the process of putting together a month long From the Cellar event for April. We recently went through the cooler and found some gems that we feel we should pour. We hope to have that list finalized by early next week as well. The idea we had goes a little something like this: We will post a list of all 15 to 20 beers, in the next week or so,that we are planning on tapping for the month of April, then on each Tuesday in the month of April we will announce what 3-5 beers are being tapped that day. We hope you plan to join us. Kinda like beer gambling, each and every Tuesday! We will be announcing the beers on our app, the facebook and here on the blog.
Another event coming up on April 17th, right around Earth Day, is an evening with Bison Brewing. Daniel ( the brewer and owner) will be in town and we thought it would a great opportunity to have an event that focused on organic beer. We have some special beers to pour that we think you will like.
On Thursday, April 25th we are excited to announce we will be hosting the launch of a new local Cidery, Schilling Cider. We are planning on tapping 4 or 5 different offerings from this new start up. As we get more details we will post them.
Soon after those events it is time for Seattle Beer Week. We have planned 3 events so far they are:
Underburg Back in Black Stout Fest: Friday, May 10th at 11am.
Beer and Burger Battle: Tuesday, May 14th ( this year this will be an all day event) We have confirmed most of the breweries. So far the contestants will be :
21st Amendment ( the defending champ) lets hope Shaun doesn't use his birthday again to garner votes...
Sour Fest: Thursday, May 16th at 11am.
Start making your plans now!
