Press Release

(July 31st, 2019. Seattle WASH) - After a successful inaugural year, West Seattle Beer & Music Festival is excited to announce its return to the Alki Masonic Center this August 23rd and 24th. The two-day festival celebrates microbrews and music from the Northwest and beyond. 

Sponsored by Beer Star, West Seattle Beer and Music Festival creates an outdoor, summer party vibe, ideal for fostering connections amongst the community. Patrons can taste beers from over 20 local and national breweries while grooving to a mix of funk and soul musical acts. It was started by West Seattle beer and food entrepreneur Joe Jeannot, who felt there was a need for this type of event. 

“I’ve always wanted to throw a beer festival. West Seattle doesn’t have a lot of festivals so I thought this was the perfect neighborhood to launch” says Jeannot. “I just love bringing people together, I’ve been doing it my whole life.” 

New this year is a Run4Food .5k race benefiting West Seattle Food Bank, the festival’s charity partner. The costumed .5k race takes place at 2:45PM on Saturday, August 24th, just before General Admission gates open at 3PM. Individuals can purchase tickets for $40, groups of six for $230. $10 of every individual ticket and $50 of every group ticket goes to West Seattle Food Bank. Admission includes entry to the Saturday session of the festival, tasting tokens and a glass. Awards for top qualifiers and best team costume will be given by race sponsor, Project 968. 

As a city, Seattle knows its beer. According to Forbes magazine, Seattle has the 9th-most breweries per capita of all US cities, and the third-most microbreweries overall. The Festival’s carefully-curated selection of beers aims to keep even Seattleites with the most experienced palettes satisfied. The selection will be wide-ranging, with a focus on specialty batches.

“I love specialty beers that start a conversation and make you check the nose, look and taste the beer,” says Jeannot. “I tried to assemble those at the festival.” 

The music stage is headlined by New York based teacher-turned-rapper Mega Ran, whom Noisey once called ‘your new favorite rapper’. Last year’s crowd favorite Marmalade headlines the music stage Friday night. For those that don’t want the party to end, there are nightly after parties DJ’d by DJ Indica Jones - beloved amongst Seattle’s hip, underground dance scene. Dogs are also welcome in the Festival on Saturday the 24th from 1-5 PM.

Until August 11th, Single-day tickets are $25 for Friday, $30 for Saturday and $65 for VIP. Ticket prices go up on August 12th. The best deal is two-day VIP, which includes admission to the festival both days with early admission Saturday for an exclusive tasting event, entry to the nightly #NotDoneYetAfterParty, and an exclusive tasting glass with 20 taste tokens to use throughout the weekend. Tickets available online from Stranger Tickets. A portion of each ticket sale goes to West Seattle Food Bank.

About West Seattle Beer & Music Festival West Seattle Beer and Music Festival is a two-day celebration of microbrews and music, taking place on August 23rd-24th 2019 at the Alki Masonic Center. Over 20 microbreweries from Washington and beyond will be present, with a wide-ranging variety of specialty brews. The musical lineup is an eclectic mix of funk and soul acts, with Marmalade headlining Friday and Mega Ran headlining Saturday. Tickets go on sale May 9th at 10 AM from Stranger Tickets. Discounted tickets are available from select vendors, and the full list of vendors is available online. A portion of each ticket sale goes to benefit the West Seattle Food Bank.

Join us August 24th from 11AM-3PM for the release of Known Presence, a Belgian-style Pale.

Head Brewer, Sean Burke, says the inspiration for this beer was the famous Trappist beer made at the Brasserie dOrval. His homage to this classic is not intended to recreate, but rather pay tribute to one of his most beloved Belgian beers.
This is a limited release so don't miss out on your chance to take your bottle home!

We could think of no better way to introduce this beer to the world than to partner with renowned cheesemonger Steve Jones of Cheese Bar. Join us in the oak cellar at our Glendoveer brewery for a pairing of cheeses and cured meats hand selected by Steve, our chef, and our brewers to pair perfectly with the latest Von Ebert Glendoveer Release.

Each ticket will include a glass of the Known Presence, a hand selected meat and cheese pairing, and a 500ml bottle to go.
Additional bottles will be available for purchase at $12 a bottle
*limit 6 bottles per person.
*12 bottle limit for Stein Society Members.

Celebrate the craft of Northwest barrel-aged beer and cider, along with small-batch American spirits, during the two-day festival on the lawn of the Deschutes Historical Museum in downtown Bend.
 
Each year, The Little Woody curates the very best selection of barrel-aged beers, ciders and whiskeys. It’s something that makes The Little Woody unlike other festivals in the region.

In addition to limited-edition beer tastes, tasty food truck bites and lawn games, guests can kick back and relax with live music from The Jess Ryan Band, Friends From Home, Long Tall Eddy and the Allan Byer Project.
 
Be a Gnomie Homie with The Big Token!
At the end of The Little Woody, a select group of Gnomie Homies who purchase The Big Token are allowed to fill their Growlers with the remaining beer on tap. The Big Token is $15/adv. and $20/gate and will allow beer lovers to fill their growler between 9:30 and 10:00 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31. Beer selection is subject to availability.
 
Dress the Part — Get a Limited-Edition Snifter & Drink Tokens
The first 300 attendees who show up in full garden gnome attire will receive a limited edition Big Woody snifter and four drink tokens. A complete costume includes beards, hats, overalls — perhaps even a wooden pipe — but a gnome hat alone won’t cut it!

Wed, 9/4 ‘Brew a Fair’ at Windy City Pie, 5918 Phinney Ave N, Seattle (ticketed event)—a casual discussion about beer’s impact on iconic world’s fairs in Chicago, Seattle, and Portland, paired with authentic Chicago-style pizza and a historic Chicago Brewseum collaboration beer brought in from Chicago.

The Schooner Zodiac is excited to continue our long tradition of welcoming local microbreweries aboard for beer tastings under sail. Each ‘Ales N’ Sails’ excursion we will host a local brewery to join us and conduct tastings of their favorite beers for our passengers. Our guests can mingle with brewery representatives and learn about the brewing process, the inspiration behind each recipe and the different styles of beer. The Zodiac’s cook will prepare a delicious and unique meal of galley fare meant to complement the beers.

There is no better way to enjoy northwest micro-brews than while catching the sunset from the deck of a classic 160-foot sailing gaff rigged schooner. These cruises are extremely popular so we recommend that you book well in advance!

Press Release

Tumwater, WA: In celebration of our community’s brewing history, the City of Tumwater and the Tumwater Downtown Association – in partnership with premier sponsor O Bee Credit Union – will host Tumwater’s 7th Annual Tumwater Artesian Brewfest. The event will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at the Tumwater Valley Golf Course, in the shadow of the former Olympia Brewery. With over 10 acres of flat manicured grass, the golf course driving range provides a unique outdoor venue for beer tasting, music, activities, food and fun.

Nearly fifty Pacific Northwest brewers will attend this year’s festival as well as several cideries, one local winery and two local distilleries. The event will also include a variety of community booths and a wide range of food options. “Keys on Main” will perform two sets of their interactive dueling piano show on the main stage. This year’s stage is receiving an upgrade, thanks in part to our generous stage sponsor Rob Rice Homes.  Our contests and activities such as super-sized beer pong, a helicopter golf ball drop, and beer stein holding contests – along with a few new attractions – make for fantastic entertainment. And even if the sun is blazing and the weather is warm, our shade and misting tent sponsor L & L Hawaiian BBQ will make sure that eventgoers stay cool and comfortable.

The Tumwater Artesian Brewfest celebrates the long history of beer making in Tumwater and the craft behind today’s outstanding beer and craft beverage professionals. This festival focuses on local brewers and vintners. According to Brewfest organizer Chuck Denney, “For us, it’s an opportunity to bring together a variety of partners and host a fantastic community event. For breweries, cideries, wineries, and distilleries, it’s an opportunity to share their talents and products with a regional audience from throughout the South Sound.”

New this year: Washington State University Extension will be on hand in the Bring Brewing Back tent, offering a tasting of four different beers made from barley grown in the Chehalis Basin. Participating breweries include Top Rung, Packwood Brewing Company, Well 80, Singing Hops, and Three Magnets. The tasting is part of a WSU research effort to identify barley varieties best suited for craft brewing and distilling – specifically for unique flavors from malted barley. Beers made with local barley will also be highlighted on the event program.

Back to the event for a second year is the “Brew-mentation” Tent sponsored by Lacey, Capital & Chehalis Collision Centers. What’s brew-mentation, you ask? Think brewing plus experimentation! Six brewers will be featured and attendees will have the opportunity to meet the brewers, taste specialty brews (that you can’t get anywhere else!), and learn about the art of brewing craft beer. Breweries will rotate every hour.

 Tickets are on sale now via Facebook or the Brewfest website. Join us in the celebration on Saturday, August 17 and help #BringBrewingBack to Tumwater! Advance tickets $25, $30 at the gate. Military and designated driver discounts available. Event parking is $5 per vehicle (cash only) and benefits Special Olympics.

Proudly sponsored by O Bee Credit Union; Lacey, Capital and Chehalis Collision Centers; L&L Hawaiian Barbecue; Rob Rice Homes; South Puget Sound Community College; Foot & Ankle Surgical Associates; Port of Olympia; State Farm - Melanie Bakala; State Farm - Eric Zabala; Allstate; Tumwater Downtown Association; and Tumwater Chamber of Commerce.

Dune Night at Peaks and Pints

Dune Night at Peaks and Pints

Press Release

Hey Tacoma GeekMoms and GeekDads! There is plenty of summer vacation season left on the calendar, and boredom may already be settling in around your house. So what are some fun, geeky places to take your geeklets? Dune Peninsula should top your list. The 11-acre park, aptly named for the environmental-themed, sci-fi novel “Dune,” written by Tacoma native Frank Herbert, is in your backyard! Just don’t schedule your other geeky excursions during Tacoma Beer Week Aug. 11-17. Peaks and Pints will host a Dune SudsPop Wednesday, Aug. 14 starring the man who championed Dune Peninsula, sci-fi author and Metro Park Board Commissioner Erik Hanberg, with music by hometown musician Doug Mackey, who grew up in the shadow of Dune Peninsula’s former occupant, the ASARCO smelter. Toss in Tacoma’s historical brewery, Pacific Brewing & Malting Co., and you can’t get more Tacoma than Peaks and Pints Tacoma Beer Week Dune Night.

For the past year, Peaks and Pints has hosted SudsPop nights pairing a brewer, an exclusive one-off beer brewed by the special guest brewer and a chosen artist or band in our East Wing events room. The Tacoma Beer Week Dune SudsPop will be the first time the host isn’t a brewer, although Pacific Brewing brewers will be in the house.

“The theme in ‘Dune’ of a world destroyed by environmental catastrophe drew in part from Frank Herbert’s life experiences in Tacoma, which in the 1950s was one of the nation’s most polluted cities,” said Park Board Commissioner Erik Hanberg, in a media release. “The characters in the novel have a goal to ‘terraform’ their planet back to its inhabitable origins. That’s what we’ve done here. We have terraformed a polluted wasteland into a beautiful environment for all to enjoy.”

Did Hanberg envision the Frank Herbert Trail that loops around the Peninsula when he hosted “Cocktails Through a Stillsuit: A Toast to Frank Herbert” at the former Hilltop Kitchen in 2013? Were the Dune Peninsula six slides that lead down to a marina complex part of Hanberg’s presentations to Rotary clubs in 2014? Did he have plans for Dune Peninsula’s ginormous lawn when he was named “Best Tacoman” in the Weekly Volcano’s 2014 Best of Tacoma issue? These are just a few of the many things you’ll discover while sipping Pacific craft beer Aug. 14 at Peaks and Pints.

Hanberg won’t be the only human with stories to tell during Peaks and Pints Dune SudsPop Aug. 14. Mackey, an equity actor, screenplay writer, former Weekly Volcano columnist, former Museum of Glass emcee, artist, songwriter, band member and sound engineer — including co-founder and sound engineer of the Channel 253 podcast hub with Hanberg and Marguerite Martin — has seen a thing or two. The singer/songwriter will, no doubt, sprinkle Tacoma stories between his songs.

Peaks and Pints promises not to re-create the foul smoke environment that plagued Herbert’s Tacoma neighborhood, nor allow vicious sandworms depicted in “Dune” to invade our cozy SudsPop event room. We do promise an enjoyable night of Tacoma stories, Tacoma grown music and Tacoma made beer. Cheers!

PEAKS AND PINTS TACOMA BEER WEEK DUNE NIGHT, 7-9 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, $14 RSVP at our bar for first 20 people.

"An Evening with Rare Barrel" at Brouwer's Cafe
Aug
14
to Aug 15

"An Evening with Rare Barrel" at Brouwer's Cafe

Hailing from Berkeley, California, Rare Barrel has remained one of the Pacific Northwest's unicorns, white whales, or whatever elusive amalgamated creature you can come up with for something out of reach. The simple fact is, when it comes to seeking out something that is only spoken of in beer forums and on social media, Rare Barrel was among those which were highly sought out. But much like the abstract complication of driving your first car, getting to first base with that special someone, or the moment you walked into a bar as a legal adult; eventually, you lose interest in the goal once it has been recovered. Enter Brouwer's Cafe, your source in Seattle for hard to find beers and in some cases spirits.

Back in early 2019, when thirsty-minded people couldn't get enough of Seattle Beer Week, Brouwer's Cafe was hosting their annual Sour Fest. During the event, listed amongst the Cantillions or Oude Gueuze,was a few drafts of Rare Barrel beers including: Across the Sea Sour Ale w/ Coriander and Sea Salt, Apropos of Nothing Sour Ale w/Elderberries and Lavender, Pop’t Art Sour Ale w/ Blueberries, Boysenberries, and Cherries, and Summer’s Gonna Hurt You Sour Ale w/ Peaches and Nectarines. Obviously, Seattle Beer Week is over and obviously, these beers are gone, right? Nope.

According to their website, they are planning a Rare Barrel encore of sorts, featuring the following beers for you to enjoy.

  • Across the Sea Sour Ale w/ Coriander and Sea Salt
    A blend of golden sour beers aged in oak barrels with coriander and sea salt, this beer has whispers of a style almost lost in time. Fermented and soured with a medley of microorganisms, across the sea is where you’ll find the undercurrents of citrus and tides of brine that flow to a bay of liquid gold.

  • Apropos of Nothing Sour Ale w/Elderberries and Lavender
    Sometimes, the most delightful results are prompted by whimsy. Born from an impromptu blending session, Apropos of Nothing is a golden sour beer fermented in oak and aged with elderberries and lavender. In turn, this beer highlights the unique characteristics of both the fruit and flower. With hints of blackberry, lemon, and honey, this lightly tart sour beer is a jammy and refreshing beverage.

  • Pop’t Art Sour Ale w/ Blueberries, Boysenberries, and Cherries
    Pop't Art is a blended red sour beer aged in oak barrels with a crazy amount of fruit. Fermented with a mixed culture, Pop't Art mixes notes of cherry pie filling, ripe blueberries, and jammy boysenberries with hints of marmalade and lemon preserves. Intense and bright, this sour is wildly delicious.

  • Summer’s Gonna Hurt You Sour Ale w/ Peaches and Nectarines
    Winter goes slowly as summer awaits with jewels of fruit, gleaming in the sun. Plump and ripe with juice that makes you lean upon first bite. Overflowing with tart peachy goodness, freshly picked from the farm, it will leave you thirsty. Summer’s gonna hurt you when the season is gone.

Starting at 6 pm, you're encouraged to swing by to order a glass (or four) of these hard-to-get beers in the Pacific Northwest. If you've not tried these elusive beers, then now would be the opportunity to satisfy the urge to scratch by stopping into Brouwer's Cafe, August 14th.

For more information, Brouwer's Cafe's Rare Beer night, visit https://www.brouwerscafe.com/2019/06/august-14th-6pm-an-evening-with-rare-barrel/ for updates, current draft lists and of course Brouwer's Cafe is at 400 North 35th Street in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood.

About Brouwer’s Cafe

We have 64 craft beers on draft, a selection of over 400 bottles from both the U.S. and abroad, an exceptional selection of Scotch and American Whisk(e)ys and a full service bar, and Belgian-inspired cuisine.

Our Belgian-inspired cuisine includes our versions of Belgian classics such as pommes frites (true Belgian fried potatoes), stoofvlees (a thick Belgian stew served on Frites), and the Belgian staple of moules-frites. We also serve a variety of sandwiches, such as our very popular lamb burger, which is ground in house. We also have a selection of salads, desserts, and a rotating specials menu.

We serve Seattle's Fremont neighborhood seven days a week, opening at 11 am. Our "Power Hour" is from 3 pm to 6 pm everyday and boasts a delicious selection of small plates and $1 off all draft beers and well cocktails.

About The Rare Barrel

We are an all-sour beer company. Sour beer is our favorite style of beer. The flavors produced by this unique fermentation and aging process cannot be replicated in any other food or beverage. Due to the involved process, sour beer is not often a commonly brewed style, making it difficult to find. We’d like to help change that.

Aside from our personal preferences for the beer, there are also practical reasons for going all-sour. By focusing completely on sour beer, we can concentrate on learning as much as possible about the reasons why those unique flavors are produced in sours. With our entire focus on sours, we have crafted a cellar around the production of sour beer. Our space is dedicated to the conditioning of barrel-aged sour beers. With high ceilings, a moderate climate and plenty of space, we give our barrels an ideal home to create their unique flavors.
It’s been said that constraint breeds creativity. By adopting a singular focus on crafting sour beer, we plan on thoroughly exploring flavors through both conventional and experimental methods to create exciting new beers.
