Seattle Beer Week May 8th thru 18th

Attention, Attention.... We are going to do something that we don't usually do....

Well its one week till the 6th annual Seattle Beer Week is in full swing.  What follows is a sampling of the list that will be available for our annual Stout Fest (Friday, May 9th), keep in mind that it is not poured in concrete, we make last minute decisions, we are dealing with brewers and sometimes they change their minds, I imagine that you understand.  We usually hesitate posting lists as part of the fun is showing up and seeing what we have compiled for your drinking pleasure.  We have been asked a bunch what we are pouring and only thought it was appropriate to post a list.  While we are at it we will post an idea of Beer and Burger (Tuesday, May 13th) , as well as some of Sour fest (Thursday, May 15th).
