This year’s event marks the 15th anniversary of the fundraiser and will take place Tuesday, September 26th, at Laurelwood’s northeast Portland location at 5115 NE Sandy Blvd. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society will receive 20% of the day’s sales to help those in need. Over $30,000 has been generated in the past 14 years from the Dine Out to Wipe Out fundraiser. Event organizer, community cancer fighter and volunteer advocate for the LLS Tam Driscoll said, "When Laurelwood and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) teamed up 15 years ago, I had no idea we'd be creating an annual tradition that brings the community together to enjoy great food, brew and music with a common goal of kicking cancer in the keister. It's a powerful partnership and game changer for those with cancer."

The event offers entertainment for kids and adults alike. Balloon artist Joe Mishkin, will make an appearance at 5 pm and band Catch & Release will perform at 6 pm.

Press Release

Boise, ID ... Boise Brewing announces the return of Hoptober Freshtival, Idaho’s largest fresh hop beer festival happening on Saturday, September 30, 2017. The brewery will be hosting a block party-style festival on the street in front of their building as well as adjoining 6th street. On tap will be 60+ different beers from 30+ different breweries, with a focus on seasonal fresh-hopped beers. Participants can play festival games and enjoy food from local food trucks while sipping beers and rubbing elbows with the hop farmers that make the beer possible.

Tickets cost $35 at the door, or can be purchased in advance for discounted prices at http://www.HoptoberFreshtival.com. Hoptober Freshtival is offering discounted “Early Bird” tickets in the months leading up to the event. Participants will receive a commemorative sample cup along with 10 drink tickets they can use to sample the fresh hopped and seasonal brews. There will also be additional tickets available for purchase at the event. The festival will run from noon to 8:00 PM. It is a 21 and over event.

“Hoptober Freshtival is an awesome celebration of craft beer and fresh hops! Brewers from all over the country have been invited to join us downtown Boise for the event” says event coordinator Sheila Francis. “While the event focuses on fresh hop beers, we will have a great selection of other beers so there will be something for everyone to enjoy! Hops are a unique agricultural product and Western Idaho is the prime location for growing hops. In addition to a flourishing craft beer industry, Idaho’s hop industry is growing and expanding. We’re all excited for the addition of Mill 95, a hop processing facility, to continue to grow Idaho’s contribution to the beer world.”

The festival focuses on specialty “once a year” fresh hop beers. The beer style involves harvesting whole cone hops straight from the farm and then using them immediately in the brewing process. Many of local breweries actually drive directly out to the hop farms and help harvest the hops for their brew. Idaho is one of the top hop-producing states in the country which allows brewers easy access to fresh, locally grown hops for their beers. The festival has grown from 25 to over 30 breweries this year, bringing in more unique offerings from local and regional breweries for guests to sample.

If you love hops, you can’t miss the 2nd Annual Seattle Fresh Hops Festival! TWO sessions to choose from! 20+ breweries will sample just released fresh hops brews. Food and sliders will be available from Hale’s.

The Yakima Valley of Washington State is one of the most important hop growing regions in the world.

Depending on the variety of hops, growers begin to harvest late August thru September.

Once a year brewmasters descend on Yakima’s Hop Country to hand pick their favorite varieties of hops, all with varying degrees of bitterness and aromatics. And they can’t wait to brew a batch or too with what they’ve chosen! Join in the fun and experience the wide range of fresh hop style beers and see what the excitement is all about!

Kells Brewery Anniversary at Kells Brewery

PORTLAND, Ore. – Kells Brewery is observing its fifth anniversary this month and the pub is marking the occasion with a celebration on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 3 p.m.to close. Festivities will include live music, a Rose City Futsal arena in the parking lot, discounts on the newly released Kells IPA six-packs, and the debut of Kells' two fresh hop beers, one of which will feature hops freshly picked from bines at the Kells Farm in Wilsonville.

This will mark the first harvest of hops from the Kells Farm; the quarter-acre test plot, originally planted in 2016, included Chinook, Cascade and Centennial varietals. According to head brewer Garrett McAleese, “The goal is to grow one acre of the best yielding varietal while continuing to grow others in the test plot; we plan on eventually using the hops in our IPA  year round.”

The community is invited to help pick the hops off the bines at Kells Brewery next Wednesday, Sept. 13 beginning at Noon and continuing until all the hops are picked. The first five buckets filled with fresh hop cones will grant the picker a complimentary six-pack of Kells IPA in 12-ounce cans (one six-pack per bucket, no matter how many pickers involved). The hops will be added to two fresh hop beers that will debut at the Fifth Anniversary Celebration a week later, including an Amarillo Kölsch on tap and the Kells Farm-hopped Cascadian Dark Lager poured off the zwickle.

The celebration will also let soccer fans play pick up games in the Rose City Futsal portable arena in the parking lot. At 7 p.m., owner Gerard McAleese and lead brewer and pub manager Garrett McAleese will raise a toast in honor of the occasion. And local singer/songwriter Jordan Harris will round out the evening with live music in the pub from 9 p.m. to Midnight.


The Kells Brewery Fifth Anniversary Celebration is free and open to all ages.

Here are the 41 Craft Breweries and their 175 unique and tasty selections for the weekend:
 
7 Seas Brewing
Gig Harbor
              
1) Autumn Ale (6.5% ABV/27 IBU)
Brewed for early-mid autumn consumption, Autumn Ale takes its inspiration from the venerable traditions of German Oktoberfest and Vienna Marzen style of beers. Employing a blend of German Munich and Vienna malts as a base, this beer displays brilliantly clear copper-orange hues evocative of the vibrant, rich, and deep colors that surface seemingly overnight on trees this time of year in the PNW.
 
2) Ballz Deep Double IPA (8.4% ABV/ 84 IBU)
A mash tun packed with Pale Ale Malt, medium crystal malt, and cara-pils malt provide a firm, slightly sweet malt flavor while copious amounts of resiny Yakima Valley hops go berserk on bitterness, flavor and aroma. Truly a Big, Bold, and Balanced double IPA.
 
Badass B­ackyard Brewing
Spokane Valley
               
1) Daring Diva Raspberry Wheat (6% ABV)
Neutral malt profile which allows the raspberry flavor to shine through. Sweet and autumnal with a fresh floral finish. This is definitely a Badass Backyard Brewing fan favorite, and tastes even better on a nice warm summer day.
2) No Alibi Coconut Brown (5% ABV)
Is there anything more iconic of the lush tropics than the coconut? The delicious heart of the island treasure has a nutty, toffee flavor and aroma that send you straight to the beaches of Paradise. Kick back with a No Alibi Coconut Brown and savor the mahogany color and smooth, roasty malt taste. Before you know it, you'll feel like you're on a crescent beach, ringed with feathery palm trees swaying in a light ocean breeze and basking in the warm sun.
3) Mojo Coffee Stout (6% ABV)
Our coffee stout is a classic combination of a traditional stout and premium signature blend coffee from a local roaster, Thomas Hammer. Roasted barley and coffee dominate the aroma, with the sweetness from the stout balancing the acidity of the coffee.
4) Harju Fresh Hop IPA (5.6% ABV)
Locally grown hops from the Harju's backyard are the sole hop ingredient in this fall favorite. Medium crisp bitterness, smooth and full malt flavor, and aroma to knock your hop socks right off your feet! Enjoy!
 
Bale Breaker Brewing
Yakima
               
1) Bale Finder IPA:  Founders Collaboration (6.5% ABV/60 IBU)
An IPA featuring experimental hop HBC 522 brewed in collaboration with Founders Brewing. Part of the Harvest Collaboration Series.
 
2) Dormancy Breakfast Stout (6.8% ABV/50 IBU)
Who says Bale Breaker only does hoppy? This year's batch of Dormancy Breakfast Stout incorporates even more oats with the malt, plus an intense coffee presence, thanks to over 1 lb/barrel of Coast Rican beans roasted by Yakima's Lincoln Avenue Coffee Co. As winter settles in to the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields surrounding our brewery lay dormant, this beer was crafted to remind us that good things can still happen in the off-season for hops.
 
3) Bottomcutter Imperial IPA (8.2% ABV/100 IBU)
Double dry-hopped with homegrown Yakima hops, Bottomcutter IIPA may be light in color but is packed with citrus and pine hop character.  This Imperial IPA is brewed to finish dry, perfect for the combination of Citra®, Simcoe®, and Ekuanot™ hops.  As the bottomcutter is a tractor that leads the topcutter through the fields during harvest, this beer will lead to a new appreciation for our valley’s hops.
 
Bellwether Brewing
Spokane
               
1)  Fernweh, Baltic Porter (6.9% ABV)
Fernweh is a deep longing to be on an adventure, or simply to be somewhere other than where you currently are.  As when Bilbo told Gandalf he so desperately wanted to see mountains again.  Fernweh, the beer, starts of rich with a malt body of chocolate and caramel, then lingers into a clean roast that finished slightly dry with just a twinge of star anise. Gold Medal winner for best Baltic Porter at 2017 Washington Beer Awards!
 
2)  Albion, Ancient Celtic Wild Sour (8.2% ABV)
Albion is the oldest name on record for the island of Great Britain.  This beer aims to reflect that legend.  Being brewed with heather and no hops gives this beer little-to-no perceived bitterness with a burst of floral, almost lavender-mint, bouquet.  Late additions of heather, that are wild-harvested and imported from Scotland, introduce microbes that sour the beer.  Peated malt provides a bit of smoke that rounds out this complex ale of antiquity.
 
3)  Extreme and Experimental Rotation
This tap will rotate, so come by and see what we have on tap!  How about a gruit ale that is the most bitter thing you've ever tasted?  Challenge accepted?  Perhaps an imperial dandelion sour?  Something super hoppy?  These and more to be found on rotation, so check in often!
 
4)  Scots Bere Barley Rotation
Have you ever wondered about ancient ingredients?  Bellwether had exclusive first-time use of Scots Bere Barley, the nigh-exclusive grain used for brewing beer in ancient Alba, modern day Scotland.  It has been adapted to life, a true landrace grain, in the American Northwest and grown by Palouse Heritage Farms.  Try our different single malt beers made with Scots Bere Barley, ranging from lagers to a bochet braggot!  These are some of the rarest beers in the country... possibly the first time this grain has ever been used in the US.  Stop by the table and see what's pouring!
 
 
 
 
Bennidito’s Brew Pub
Spokane
               
1) IPA (7% ABV/65 IBU)
Mosaic, Simco, Citra, and Columbus. Nuff Said!
 
2) Clock Tower Imperial IPA (9% ABV/80 IBU)
Amarillo, Cascade, and Simcoe! Smooth and dangerous!
3) Whiskey Barrel Aged Brown Ale (6.8% ABV/15 IBU)
Aged 5 months in a fresh Dry Fly Wheat Whiskey Barrel.
 
4) Mystery Beer
Visit our booth to see what we have in surprise for you!
 
Big Barn Brewing
Mead
               
1) Big Barn Raspberry Braggot (10.5% ABV, 15 IBU)
Here’s to making farm-style beer that impresses northwest beer connoisseurs as simultaneously unique and easy to drink. This brand-new release from Big Barn is a full-bodied honey beer with subtle raspberry notes.  A malt-forward body harmonizes with the sweetness of farm fresh honey and finishes with lingering fruit notes from fresh-picked raspberries we grew here on the family farm.
 
2) Blackberry Porter (6.8% ABV/ 65 IBU)
This porter does great justice to our brewery’s farming roots.  Our farm-fresh blackberries make their appearance via the addition of our homemade blackberry syrup just at the end of the boil.  A hint of blackberry on the nose is followed by a hearty porter body.  As in most of our fruit beers, the blackberry undertones remain subtle yet just strong enough to make this an outstanding fall seasonal.
 
3) Golden Pumpkin Ale-ABV (6.3% ABV/ 13 IBU)
Few pumpkin ales can offer what ours does here at Big Barn Brewing. Our home-grown, freshly-harvested sugar pumpkins are roasted with seeds and all until caramelized then steeped with a hearty grain bill to make this brew truly golden.  The carefully balanced 2-row barley, roasted pumpkins, cinnamon, molasses, ginger, clove, and real vanilla pair to make this a superb fall seasonal micro-brew.
 
4) Fresh Hop Midnight Harvest Black IPA (6% ABV/80 IBU)
Farm based brewing means we want "our farm" product in our beer!  Our MIDNIGHT HARVEST celebrates that goal.  As Spokane County's first "unofficial" commercial hop farm, we boast making a fresh hop ale with only hops harvested on our farm.... big C's celebrate the flavor of this IPA as we load it with Centennial, Cascade and Chinook hops.
 
 
Black Label Brewing
Spokane
               
1) The Tropical Thunder IPA (6% ABV/80 IBU)
This beer has a deliciously light malt profile with a smack of tropical blends consisting of Sorachi Ace, Amarillo, and Citra Hops.
2) Rhubarb Cherry Sour (5.6% ABV/9 IBU)
A mild sour with hints of locally grown Green Bluff Cherries and Rhubarb grown right in the brewer’s backyard. Nice and refreshing!
 
3) The S.M.O.G. Imperial Stout (11% ABV/59 IBU)
Is our new amazing Imperial Oatmeal Stout done with a delicate blend of Carmel and Chocolate malts and finished with some maple syrup. This is hopped with Chinook and EKG hops moderately balancing off the sweetness from the malt. You don’t want to miss this one!
 
4) Coffee Cream Ale (5.3% ABV/16 IBU)
This is a nice light and crisp Cream Ale with hints of Corn and Pilsen malt. We then blend in some locally roasted coffee into the beer to add a subtle additional layer of delicious coffee to the beer. This beer is a beautiful light and tasty treat.
 
Blewett Brewing
Leavenworth
               
1) Fresh Hop Double IPA (9.5% ABV/160 IBU)
Hops: Simcoe, Ekuanot. Fresh hopped with Simcoe.
 
2) Pumpkin Ale (5.5% ABV/32 IBU)
Hops: Styrian Golding, Tettnang
 
3) Crikside Citra IPA (6.5% ABV/80 IBU)
Hops: Citra, Mosaic
 
4) BarnStorm Pale Ale (6% ABV/55 IBU)
Hops: Simcoe, Northern Brewer
 
Boundary Bay Brewery
Bellingham
               
1) Fresh Hop Pale
Boundary Bay’s Fresh Hop Pale Ale is brewed solely with Amarillo hops from Vigil Gamache Farms in Toppenish, WA. Delight your senses with heady floral, spicy, sweet peach, and citrus flavors of grapefruit, orange, and kumquat, as well as a slight and pleasant grassy flavor from the fresh hops.
 
2) Cedar Dust (6.5% ABV/66 IBU)
Inspiration for Cedar Dust IPA hails from Bellingham’s iconic mountain bike trail on Galbraith Mountain. Brewed with four varieties of Washington-grown hops to encapsulate the spirit of the adventurous PNW.
 
 
 
3) Thirsty Ghost (6% ABV/25 IBU)
The second beer in our new Cellarman Series, Thirsty Ghost is a hybrid style with elements inspired by Sake and Kolsch. Using a blend of three yeasts (two of them uncommon to beer brewering), our double-dragon team of brewer and cellarman transformed mere rice into this Pan-Pacific delight.

7 Seas Brewing
Gig Harbor
              
1) Autumn Ale (6.5% ABV/27 IBU)
Brewed for early-mid autumn consumption, Autumn Ale takes its inspiration from the venerable traditions of German Oktoberfest and Vienna Marzen style of beers. Employing a blend of German Munich and Vienna malts as a base, this beer displays brilliantly clear copper-orange hues evocative of the vibrant, rich, and deep colors that surface seemingly overnight on trees this time of year in the PNW.
 
2) Ballz Deep Double IPA (8.4% ABV/ 84 IBU)
A mash tun packed with Pale Ale Malt, medium crystal malt, and cara-pils malt provide a firm, slightly sweet malt flavor while copious amounts of resiny Yakima Valley hops go berserk on bitterness, flavor and aroma. Truly a Big, Bold, and Balanced double IPA.
 
Badass B­ackyard Brewing
Spokane Valley
               
1) Daring Diva Raspberry Wheat (6% ABV)
Neutral malt profile which allows the raspberry flavor to shine through. Sweet and autumnal with a fresh floral finish. This is definitely a Badass Backyard Brewing fan favorite, and tastes even better on a nice warm summer day.
2) No Alibi Coconut Brown (5% ABV)
Is there anything more iconic of the lush tropics than the coconut? The delicious heart of the island treasure has a nutty, toffee flavor and aroma that send you straight to the beaches of Paradise. Kick back with a No Alibi Coconut Brown and savor the mahogany color and smooth, roasty malt taste. Before you know it, you'll feel like you're on a crescent beach, ringed with feathery palm trees swaying in a light ocean breeze and basking in the warm sun.
3) Mojo Coffee Stout (6% ABV)
Our coffee stout is a classic combination of a traditional stout and premium signature blend coffee from a local roaster, Thomas Hammer. Roasted barley and coffee dominate the aroma, with the sweetness from the stout balancing the acidity of the coffee.
4) Harju Fresh Hop IPA (5.6% ABV)
Locally grown hops from the Harju's backyard are the sole hop ingredient in this fall favorite. Medium crisp bitterness, smooth and full malt flavor, and aroma to knock your hop socks right off your feet! Enjoy!
 
Bale Breaker Brewing
Yakima
               
1) Bale Finder IPA:  Founders Collaboration (6.5% ABV/60 IBU)
An IPA featuring experimental hop HBC 522 brewed in collaboration with Founders Brewing. Part of the Harvest Collaboration Series.
 
2) Dormancy Breakfast Stout (6.8% ABV/50 IBU)
Who says Bale Breaker only does hoppy? This year's batch of Dormancy Breakfast Stout incorporates even more oats with the malt, plus an intense coffee presence, thanks to over 1 lb/barrel of Coast Rican beans roasted by Yakima's Lincoln Avenue Coffee Co. As winter settles in to the Pacific Northwest and the hop fields surrounding our brewery lay dormant, this beer was crafted to remind us that good things can still happen in the off-season for hops.
 
3) Bottomcutter Imperial IPA (8.2% ABV/100 IBU)
Double dry-hopped with homegrown Yakima hops, Bottomcutter IIPA may be light in color but is packed with citrus and pine hop character.  This Imperial IPA is brewed to finish dry, perfect for the combination of Citra®, Simcoe®, and Ekuanot™ hops.  As the bottomcutter is a tractor that leads the topcutter through the fields during harvest, this beer will lead to a new appreciation for our valley’s hops.
 
Bellwether Brewing
Spokane
               
1)  Fernweh, Baltic Porter (6.9% ABV)
Fernweh is a deep longing to be on an adventure, or simply to be somewhere other than where you currently are.  As when Bilbo told Gandalf he so desperately wanted to see mountains again.  Fernweh, the beer, starts of rich with a malt body of chocolate and caramel, then lingers into a clean roast that finished slightly dry with just a twinge of star anise. Gold Medal winner for best Baltic Porter at 2017 Washington Beer Awards!
 
2)  Albion, Ancient Celtic Wild Sour (8.2% ABV)
Albion is the oldest name on record for the island of Great Britain.  This beer aims to reflect that legend.  Being brewed with heather and no hops gives this beer little-to-no perceived bitterness with a burst of floral, almost lavender-mint, bouquet.  Late additions of heather, that are wild-harvested and imported from Scotland, introduce microbes that sour the beer.  Peated malt provides a bit of smoke that rounds out this complex ale of antiquity.
 
3)  Extreme and Experimental Rotation
This tap will rotate, so come by and see what we have on tap!  How about a gruit ale that is the most bitter thing you've ever tasted?  Challenge accepted?  Perhaps an imperial dandelion sour?  Something super hoppy?  These and more to be found on rotation, so check in often!
 
4)  Scots Bere Barley Rotation
Have you ever wondered about ancient ingredients?  Bellwether had exclusive first-time use of Scots Bere Barley, the nigh-exclusive grain used for brewing beer in ancient Alba, modern day Scotland.  It has been adapted to life, a true landrace grain, in the American Northwest and grown by Palouse Heritage Farms.  Try our different single malt beers made with Scots Bere Barley, ranging from lagers to a bochet braggot!  These are some of the rarest beers in the country... possibly the first time this grain has ever been used in the US.  Stop by the table and see what's pouring!

Here’s to making farm-style beer that impresses northwest beer connoisseurs as simultaneously unique and easy to drink. This brand-new release from Big Barn is a full-bodied honey beer with subtle raspberry notes.  A malt-forward body harmonizes with the sweetness of farm fresh honey and finishes with lingering fruit notes from fresh-picked raspberries we grew here on the family farm.
 
2) Blackberry Porter (6.8% ABV/ 65 IBU)
This porter does great justice to our brewery’s farming roots.  Our farm-fresh blackberries make their appearance via the addition of our homemade blackberry syrup just at the end of the boil.  A hint of blackberry on the nose is followed by a hearty porter body.  As in most of our fruit beers, the blackberry undertones remain subtle yet just strong enough to make this an outstanding fall seasonal.
 
3) Golden Pumpkin Ale-ABV (6.3% ABV/ 13 IBU)
Few pumpkin ales can offer what ours does here at Big Barn Brewing. Our home-grown, freshly-harvested sugar pumpkins are roasted with seeds and all until caramelized then steeped with a hearty grain bill to make this brew truly golden.  The carefully balanced 2-row barley, roasted pumpkins, cinnamon, molasses, ginger, clove, and real vanilla pair to make this a superb fall seasonal micro-brew.
 
4) Fresh Hop Midnight Harvest Black IPA (6% ABV/80 IBU)
Farm based brewing means we want "our farm" product in our beer!  Our MIDNIGHT HARVEST celebrates that goal.  As Spokane County's first "unofficial" commercial hop farm, we boast making a fresh hop ale with only hops harvested on our farm.... big C's celebrate the flavor of this IPA as we load it with Centennial, Cascade and Chinook hops.
 
 
Black Label Brewing

Is our new amazing Imperial Oatmeal Stout done with a delicate blend of Carmel and Chocolate malts and finished with some maple syrup. This is hopped with Chinook and EKG hops moderately balancing off the sweetness from the malt. You don’t want to miss this one!
 
4) Coffee Cream Ale (5.3% ABV/16 IBU)
This is a nice light and crisp Cream Ale with hints of Corn and Pilsen malt. We then blend in some locally roasted coffee into the beer to add a subtle additional layer of delicious coffee to the beer. This beer is a beautiful light and tasty treat.

What happens when you're standing in front of the Slurpee machine and can't decide on a flavor?  You combine them and get The Suicide.  What happens when you can't decide between a sour and an IPA?  You combine them and get WA' Dat?!  This beer is a 50-50 blend of IPA and lacto sour then dry hopped to finish – tart like a grapefruit rind with the bitterness of an IPA.

"Elysian Brewing Pumpkin Road Show" at Peaks and Pints

  • Peaks and Pints at Basecamp Proctor (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS
During the Elysian Brewing Pumpkin Road Show at Peaks and Pints, the Seattle brewery will serve pumpkin beer out of an actual hollowed-out giant pumpkin flowing through a tap, orange spheres will fly through the air into Solo Red Cups and a giant jar of pumpkin seeds will wait for the best count guess.

No, we do not mess around with autumn celebrations here at Peaks and Pints. 
This year, Peaks and Pints will host the annual Tacoma Elysian Pumpkin Road Show, a prefunk to the Seattle brewery’s grand pumpkin affair that includes 80-plus pumpkin beers Sept. 29-30 — the Elysian Great Pumpkin Beer Festival at the Seattle Center. Peaks and Pints will pour eight Elysian pumpkin beers, including exclusive Gourd Father Barleywine, Blight Pumpkin Ale with spiced Japanese cinnamon, Dark Knife Pumpkin Saison and Cursed Hearse Pumpkin Schwarzbier.

In addition to the pumpkin beers, we’ll present a pumpkin firkin, pumpkin beer pong, pumpkin seed guessing contest, pumpkin goblets and many giveaways, including a pair of tickets to Friday and Saturday versions of the Great Pumpkin Beer Festival in Seattle.

Fall has long been the season of the gourd. Pumpkins are the stars of spice lattes; pie and farmers grow them so large that they're no longer measured in pounds, but in tons. But the simplest pleasure when it comes to the pumpkin is — cue Billy Corgan — drinking gobs of them from a pumpkin goblet.

ELYSIAN PUMPKIN ROAD SHOW TACOMA, 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 21, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover

Stoup Brewing hosts "Barrel Blending w/Stoup & Wander Brewers" at Stoup Brewing

Believe it or not, there was a time when pubs would make their own beer. It's true. Back in the days of England, breweries would produce several unique beers made with the intent on being blended together to make the three threads, which would later be called Entire and shortly after, the Porter. But the English aren't the only ones who blended their beers. In fact, the Belgians continue this practice today, selling blended beers aged in barrels made from both young (often less than 6 months old) and old (often a year or more) to form blended beers like Lambic. Of course, this is educational but it doesn't explain why Stoup is hosting a unique event. Or does it? 

Starting at 6 pm, and limited to the first 40 who register, Stoup Brewing is hosting a blending session, hosted by Stoup Brewing and their Collaboration Beer Festival partner Wander Brewing. Included with your $65 admission you get the following:

A one-of-a-kind experience as you are educated by award winning brewers Brad Benson (Stoup), Robyn Schumacher (Stoup), and Chad Kuehl (Wander).
Experience the process with your own blending exercise
4 tasters, including 2 collaboration beers + 1 beer from both Stoup Brewing and Wander Brewing
1 Pint of your choice from the 4 beers featured at the event
1 500ml bottle from each of the 2 collaboration beers made exclusively for the event

To purchase tickets email info@stoupbrewing and provide a phone number which will be used to provide payment information, prior to reservation. Note, emails will be responded to in the order they are received.

Stoup Brewing is located at 1108 NW 52nd St, Seattle, WA 98107 and open on average from 3pm to 9pm. For current day hours, visit http://www.stoupbrewing.com.

Stone Brewing Company & NOFX collaborate to release Punk in Drublic Hoppy Lager.

Stone Brewing Company & NOFX collaborate to release Punk in Drublic Hoppy Lager.

Press Release

When Fat Mike called up the guys at Stone Brewing, their first response was, “where’d you get my number and why are you calling at 3 a.m.?” Things progressed and a beer was brewed. The Punk In Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival kicks off September 16 in Tacoma, WA and Stone & NOFX Punk In Drublic Hoppy Lager has just hit stores in 12-ounce cans….although some stores took to a no nonsense DIY approach citing punk rock as their excuse, “You don’t control punk rock with arbitrary corporate release dates. The people get their beer when I say they get their beer.” So, OK. Rock on. Hopefully you’re well into enjoying your fresh hoppy lagers. 

It took careful tact for the Stone Brewing team to successfully distract the HR department while recklessly welcoming Fat Mike to the brewery. After his collaboration with Stone’s brewers to dream up just the right punk rock libation, he pitched the hops and drank all the beers, ultimately resulting in Stone & NOFX Punk In Drublic Hoppy Lager, which - against all odds - is really f***ing good. 

Stone’s Senior Innovation Brewing Manager Jeremy Moynier can better expand on that: “Crisp, clean and very refreshing. This beer is crushable, but not corporate, tasteless ‘crushable.’ It has a traditional pilsner aroma with malt and melon flavors leading into a medium bitter finish. We brewed with Magnum and Hull Melon, the latter of which is a newer hop variety out of Germany that results in classic pilsner qualities with a nice hoppy finish.”

When asked how Stone & NOFX Punk in Drublic Hoppy Lager tastes, Fat Mike says, “It’s something to wash the noise away.” However, other slogans offered by Mike that were quickly turned down by Stone included, “It’s the beer of champagnes” and finally, “They say you can’t get beer from a stone…oh shit, we just did!” 

The collaboration isn’t just an excuse for Fat Mike to sport brewing clamps as handcuffs (although rumor has it he took full advantage of that opportunity). NOFX has announced the Punk in Drublic Craft Beer & Music Festival stopping in Tacoma, WA, Boise, ID, Phoenix, AZ, Concord, Sacramento and Huntington Beach, CA. A Brew Ha Ha Production , the event will feature four hours of tastings of more than 100 craft beers followed by NOFX and alternating co-headliners Flogging Molly and Bad Religion. Goldfinger, Less Than Jake and Bad Cop/Bad Cop among others round out the epic festival lineup. 

It wouldn’t be very punk rock of us to detail Stone’s roots in music, nor Fat Mike’s devout obligation to alcohol. We definitely don’t need to get into the serendipitous parallels of Fat Wreck Chords and Stone Brewing or Stone Distributing. So what’s left are a few facts to help thirsty punk rockers get their hands on the beer and drink it like a rock star.

"Bottleshop Collaboration Project" release Chuckanut Old Fest Lager BCP04 at The Beer Junction

Amber, malty, bready, balanced, medium bodied & drinkable

Chuckanut Old Fest is a collaboration with our local bottleshop “Elizabeth Station” to celebrate Oktoberfest in the old tradition of a Marzen Lager Style. Different from our regular Fest Bier this lager is maltier and more rich in flavor with an appetizing bitterness that serves to balance rather than challenge the malt underpinnings. Breadlike, malty sweetness and firm bitterness makes this traditional style Oktoberfest bier very appetizing!

"Cascade/Bruery Terreux Collaboration Party" at Belmont Station

image courtesy Cascade Brewing Company

Cascade Brewing and Bruery Terreuxhave each released a version of their long-awaited collaboration beer: One Way or Another. This collaboration is a blend of sour triple ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to 16 months with regional ingredients including Oregon marionberries and California Meyer lemons. 

Last spring, the crew from Bruery Terreux visited Cascade to discuss the blend and to brew the first batch of what was to become One Way o r Another. The following week, Bruery Terreux replicated the same recipe in their brewery in Anaheim, Calif. The two brewery projects feature different labels and graphics to delineate between the two.

Cascade and Bruery Terreux team members will be here to help us release both bottled versions, which will be available in the bottle shop to take home. We also will pour both versions in the biercafe so you can try them side-by-side while chatting with the brew crews!
