As you know, Seattle Beer Week kicks off Thursday, May 9th and runs through May 18th. We have a slew of fun activities to share with you.
Wednesday the 8th we are having a pre funk for the week devoted to Seattle brewers with an event focusing on the thriving Ballard area. We will have kegs from each of the brewers in Ballard, and will be offering $4 flights of them. We should have a few of the brewers there representing their beer as well, so stop on by and talk beer with the makers of your favorite local beer!
Thursday the 9th we will be hosting Boston Beer Company (Sam Adams). We will be featuring four beers from them on tap: India Pale Lager, Grumpy Monk Belgian IPA, Honey Queen Braggot (hybrid between beer and mead), and a Maple Pecan Porter. But wait, there’s more! The first 20 people to sign up will get to take part in a tasting. For $20, you will be able to try 4oz samples of all of the beers on tap, as well as a 1oz pour of the 2012 Utopias and a 4oz pour of their Angry Orchard Iceman cider. We look to hold the tasting around 6pm. Please email us at Chuckshopshop@gmail.com with your name and phone number, or ask for the sign up sheet the next time you are in the store. Space is limited, so don’t wait!
Monday the 13th at 4pm we will be hosting Steve Dresler of Sierra Nevada Brewing! Come stop by, check out some cool beers on tap, and have a talk with Sierra Nevada’s head brewmaster before he heads over to The Burgundian.
Tuesday the 14th we will be hosting Widmer for a beer and ice cream pairing. Widmer is working with Full Tilt to make four flavors specifically for pairings. Come try four beers with four scoops of ice cream for $6
Wednesday the 15th is our Imperial Stout tasting. We’ve been saving back kegs for a while now, and are ready to put them on all at once. $8 will get you four 3oz samples of some world class dark beer. This isn’t one to be missed.
