Seattle Beer Week 8 is almost here...

That's right!  Seattle Beer Week 8 is almost upon us.  Beer Week, which runs from May 12th to May 22nd--yep 11 days-- it has been dubbed a brewers week-- always kicks off with a bus tour.  This bus tour comprised mostly of industry folks travels around the city to specific locations while tapping the beer brewed in honor of Seattle Beer Week.  This year our friends at Reuben's Brews brewed the Daily Pale.  We are honored to be the second stop on the bus tour this year, and welcome you to join us from 6ish to just before 7.  

 We are excited about our events:

Wednesday, May 18th @2pm—Tasting Beer with Jamie Floyd from Ninkasi.
Join Jamie Floyd as he discusses how we taste the beers we love. We'll go through all 5 types of tasting from sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and  umami. We'll learn how each of these senses pair with, complement, and even cancel each other out to give you the exact flavor sensation that brewers have planned to deliver with their products.
