"Bootlegger Speakeasy" at Boundary Bay Brewing

The year is 1920. The 18th Amendment ratified and the U.S. is pronounced a dry country. But what about all the craft beer, you ask?? No need to smuggle booze in your boot here…we’ve got ya’ covered. Come celebrate this year’s winter solstice at Boundary Bay Brewery’s Bootlegger Speakeasy! 

Ninety-seven years ago the tradition of bootlegging came about in response to the Prohibition. Americans who were not quite ready to give up their booze found sneakier loopholes around the authorities. “Speakeasies” began to pop up as illicit taverns selling booze as patrons were told to “speak easy” about these unauthorized saloons.

This year our brewers have SIX barrel-aged beers on draft including a Bootlegger Stout and Bootlegger Thirsty Ghost release......As well as THREE other special surprises up their boots. 

These beers sit quietly in the caverns of Boundary Bay maturing in maple syrup barrels as well as rum, bourbon, whiskey and scotch barrels fromChuckanut Bay Distillery

Historical trivia of Bellingham will be put on by Good Time Girls Tours and complimentary snacks by Boundary Bay Catering! An event of the year to celebrate these one of a kind beers. 

FREE // 6-9pm // 21+

"Firkin Frolic Happy Hour - Boise’s Firkin Beer Festival" at The Basque Center

Boise's Firkin Frolic Beerfest is back for another round, and it's bigger and better than ever before! We're featuring some of the best local breweries and will be pouring some LIMITED, ONE-OF-A-KIND firkins along with several other fantastic brews!


WHAT IS A FIRKIN?

>> A Firkin is a unit of measurement, and also the size of a particular kind of keg for cask conditioning. One quartre of a barrel, 72 pints, 9 imperial gallons…blah, blah, blah. 

The bottom line, the brass tacks, the nitty-gritty…or, if you will, the bottom of the glass…it is a specialty beer that is tapped in a unique way. A firkin is a “Real Ale” in that it has not been cold filtered, pasteurized, carbonated, or manipulated by any other processes. You will be drinking a free range, cage free beer, just like those back in the first days of beer drinking. So, essentially a firkin is a time machine to take you back to time when men were men, the west was wild, beards were not manicured, and beer was actually beer.


BREWERIES

>> Boise Brewing
>> Lost Grove Brewing
>> Mother Earth Brew Co. - Nampa
>> Sawtooth Brewery

image sourced from "Seattle Brewing: Craft, Culture, and History

Over the course of more than a century, Seattle brewers and their customers have created one of the nation's singular brewing cultures. A rich blend of resources shaped this story: the fragrant hops that grow in the surrounding region; a sense of identity rooted in geography and cuisine; and a brewing community that flourished via dedication to ideals of creativity and professional mentorship. As a result, Seattle changed the course of American brewing history while simultaneously writing its own story. 

On December 8, the American Brewing History Initiative of the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History comes to Pike Place Market to lead a discussion about Seattle's brewing history. Our conversation will explore the stories and history of craft brewing in the city with a farm-to-glass approach, featuring a multi-generational panel from perspectives of craft brewing, home brewing, and agriculture. How do contemporary brewers and growers incorporate a sense of history into their work? In their view, what distinguishes the brewing culture of the Pacific Northwest? What does it mean to be an artisan, or craft, producer today, and in the future? Come listen, contribute, taste, and enjoy.

Guest Speaker Panel:
Dick Cantwell, Brewer, co-founder of Elysian Brewing Co.
Charles and Rose Ann Finkel, founders of Pike Brewing Co.
Annie Johnson, Master Brewer-in-Residence, PicoBrew
Representative from Skagit Valley Malting

Panel moderator: Theresa McCulla, Ph.D. Historian, American Brewing History Initiative

Each ticket includes: Six tastes (4 oz.) from Old Stove Brewing Co., Pike Brewing and Annie Johnson, and a plate of heavy appetizers from Chef Traci Calderon of the Atrium Kitchen at Pike Place Market.
