Seattle Beer Week 2019 @ Chuck’s 85th

Seattle Beer Week is quickly approaching so it’s time we let you all in on what we have planned for SBW 2019!

sbw_smb_insta-01

As in years past we’re doing our usual SBW line-up:
Chuck The Puck Up!, May 10 & 11
IPA Blowout, May 14 & 15
Barrel Roller, May 17 & 18

On the first day of both Chuck The Puck Up! (CTPU) and Barrel Roller (BR) each beer will have a 1/4 pint price listed. You’ll still need to buy a new Chuck’s-branded glass for $3 (this year’s logo is pretty sweet!), but after that it’s up to you! Just want a couple pours? Cool! Want to try a bunch? That’s cool too! It really couldn’t be simpler!

As in years past, the first day of the CTPU and BR events will be 1/4 pours only. The second day all beers will be open to full pours, flights, and growler fills. IPA Blowout will be business as usual: pints, flights, and growler fills. Each event will feature 30 beers of the chosen style.

That’s enough boring formalities: let’s talk about beer!

Chuck The Puck Up! – May 10 & 11
As always we’re putting together a superstar list of sours from all over the PNW and beyond. We’ve collected sours from the likes of DeGarde, Cascade, Holy Mountain, Mirage, Ale Song, and many more. This is shaping up to be our best sour list yet. For more details and full lists check back here at chucks85th.com.

IPA Blowout – May 14 & 15
Let’s brass tax this one: we’re the Hop Shop. If we didn’t have an event featuring 30 of the best IPAs that we can get our hands on well… you know. It would be bad. So guess it’s good that we have 30 of the best IPAs we can lay our hands on! This year we’ve collaborated with Fort George to create a very special IPA, done in a style they’ve never attempted before! For more details and full lists check back here at chucks85th.com.

Barrel Roller – May 17 & 18
There are few things we love more than a well made barrel aged beer. From saisons to imperial stouts, wine barrels to whiskey barrels, they all get us excited. We test each one of them to make sure they live up to the name Barrel Roller. Our truly selfless dedication has paid off again this year with a list featuring Fremont, Culmination, Skookum, Structures, Modern Times, and a whole host of amazing breweries. At this event it’s all about havin’ that good barrel age. For more details and full lists check back here at chucks85th.com.

Chuck’s Greenwood 9th Anniversary Party!!

For nine years Chuck’s has been growing, serving, and celebrating our local Seattle community and we want to invite you to our little party!crush_005-02

Rolling out this Saturday, April 6th — Chuck’s First Crush! We are so tremendously honored to have teamed up with @reubensbrews for our 9th Anniversary! We’ve had a crush on Reuben’s since day one! Chuck’s First Crush is a batch of Reuben’s highly celebrated Double Crush Hazy IIPA series, featuring a crushable hop profile of Citra, Mosaic, and Galaxy — some of our all-time favorites. For Chuck’s First Crush, we’ll have cans to go, draft to stay, and a limited amount of co-branded Chuck’s & Reuben’s shirts and stickers… details on merchandise coming later in the week. This beer will go quickly in-house, and we’d love to share it with everyone — roll through on Saturday, we would love nothing more than to pour you a beer and celebrate together.

As in years past we’re also pulling together a “greatest hits” tap list that we are immensely excited about. We’ve got fresh IPA’s, tart sours, and rare kegs that we’re pulling from the cellar. Featuring local favorites like Cloudburst, Fremont, Holy Mountain, Seapine, and so much more.

Thanks for an amazing nine years Seattle! Cheers!

 

 

Great Notion/Chuck’s Collab Coming Soon….

chucks_final-1.jpgWe’re hosting one of our favorite PNW breweries, Great Notion Brewing!!! We’re going to be tapping several of their beers at both of our locations, including our collaboration Chuck’s Notion IPA! (Draft list TBA)

The cans of Chuck’s Notion IPA will be released just as soon as they arrive. If everything goes as planned, we’re hoping the cans will be released on Saturday, November 10th. They will be available at opening at both of our locations, with a limit of 1 case per customer. At the latest, they will be available on Wednesday, November 14th. Regardless of when the cans are released, we will have plenty of draft available for crowlers/growler on 11/14. We will also have special glassware and t-shirts available during the can release too!

We supply all the tie-dye supplies, aftercare instructions, and a whole bunch of plain white Chuck’s shirts. We will have a special kid-friendly tshirt design that we’ll be debuting at this event, too!

$3 of each shirt sold will go to Treehouse. They work with children in foster care to help pursue future opportunities and supply them with necessary resources.
We will also be accepting donations for Treehouse via cash or credit cards, if you aren’t in the tie-dyeing mood!
