We wanted to find a way to make fresh hop beers using our hops more available to beer drinkers in the Silverton area, and realized that we could support a local non-profit organization at the same time.
… We will then donate the keg to Seven Brides who will pour it at their pub in Silverton and donate the profits ($3 per pint) to Silverton Area Community Aid (also known as SACA, our local food bank).
The interest from brewers has been very impressive- we will have over 20 kegs donated and poured throughout the month of September. Seven Brides named the event “Fresh Hops for Hope” and is currently pouring the 4th keg we received, Level Beer’s Fresh Hop Oktoberfest. Seven Brides is posting new tapping announcements on Facebook as soon as a new beer is available.
Get your Oompah on with us! During all of the official Oktoberfest celebration (meaning, the one in Munich), we will be featuring special liters of Oktoberfest drafts, and Monk's Deli will be cooking up some tasty German-style sausages in the food cart. Make sure to stop in the bottle shop to grab some Okto beers to take home! It's going to be a lager-licious good time!
We are also throwing our own Fresh Hop Forum at the Aslan Depot on September 29th, featuring fresh hop beers from Reuben's, Matchless, Seapine, Fremont, Stoup, Skookum, Cloudburst, Holy Mtn, and Block 15.
Come celebrate the changing seasons with two of our favorite beer styles and two of our favorite bands. On Saturday, September 29th, we’ll be pouring our Oktoberfest and two fresh hop IPAs while feeling the vibes with the Tyler Hamilton Band and the Charles Street Messengers. The back half of the parking lot will serve as a beer garden, and we’ll have college football on every TV. (YES, WE DO HAVE THE PAC-12 NETWORK)

Silver City Brewery, Georgetown Brewing, and Fremont Brewing are ecstatic to announce partnership on this year's Seattle Sounders-focused pub crawl event to be held on Saturday, September 1st. Celebrating Seattle sports and the local pub culture, the event will see hundreds of thirsty Seattle soccer fans coming together in Pioneer Square over local craft beer at a variety of beloved establishments, culminating with participants attending the Sporting Kansas City at Sounders FC match en masse at CenturyLink Field, 1PM PT.
Inspired by the overwhelming popularity of Silver City Brewery’s annual Mariners Pub Crawl, which in 2018 had nearly 600 attendees and 14 participating pubs, one of the most frequent points of feedback was a desire for a similar, Sounders-focused event. In October of 2017, the first annual "Seattle FC Pub Crawl" was held with a host of several local breweries. The event was a blast, so we've decided to do it again-- this year with our friends at Georgetown Brewing and Fremont Brewing.
Tickets to the Seattle Soccer Pub Crawl go on sale July 6th at 4:00pm for $45/each. Price includes a ticket to the match as well as an exclusive t-shirt commemorating the pub crawl, with all three participating brands represented. When purchasing, attendees will choose their “home brewery” where they will have the option to check-in early and pick up their swag in the days leading up to the event.
An option will also be available for season ticket holders that excludes the game ticket but provides the commemorative shirt and pub passport. These are available for $25.
The pub crawl will commence at 11:00am on Saturday, September 1st. If participants have not already checked-in, they will be able to pick up their game tickets and t-shirts at a designated location to be announced. From there, attendees will be able to visit over a dozen locations throughout Pioneer Square, all featuring beverages by Georgetown, Fremont, and Silver City Brewery. A pub passport will be provided that lists the participating pubs, as well as a map of which brands are being poured at each location. Attendees are encouraged to partake responsibly and choose a “top few” locations to visit. Visiting every single location is not mandatory, nor encouraged.
What if some beer you never met; some beer you never saw; some beer you never knew; was the only beer for you?
We think we might have a match(less) for you. The crew at Bottleworks and Brouwer’s will be heading down to Tumwater to brew a nice, juicy IPA that’s as easy to enjoy on your houseboat on Lake Union as it is in your garage in the south sound.
We’ll be having a special can release of our and Matchless’ collabro-ation IPA – Sleeveless in Seattle at Bottleworks on August 30th. We’ll be hosting Matchless at Brouwer’s starting at 6pm, where you’ll be able to try SiS on draft along with some other, fine Matchless brews.
As per our recommendation, Sleeveless in Seattle tastes best cold, in the Summer, while wearing a shirt without sleeves; or, warm, in the winter, while wearing a shirt without sleeves; or, lightly chilled, in the Fall, while wearing a shirt without sleeves… all right, drink it how you want except you just don’t need those constricting shirt sleeves while enjoying this beer… they just get in the way of those partially tanned guns, anyhow.

Portland, Oregon ... On August 25th, Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) the first-ever brewery to certify it’s brewery site as "Salmon-Safe," presents the inaugural Salmon-Safe IPA Festival at its SE Powell location. The Salmon-Safe IPA Festival is the first festival of it's kind, bringing together 21 craft breweries from around the country - large and small - to make hop-forward beers that are all brewed with Salmon-Safe certified ingredients.
Salmon-Safe is an ecolabel certification that works with farmers and developers to reduce watershed impacts through third-party accountability. Beers in the Salmon-Safe IPA Festival are brewed with ingredients sourced from farms committed to protecting clean water and biodiversity in Northwest agricultural watersheds, which are essential for native fish populations.
The Salmon-Safe IPA Festival will be divided into two sessions. Session #1 is an all-ages session that runs from 12-4 pm, and Session #2 is 21+ and runs from 5-9 pm. Each ticket package costs $25 and comes with 10 drink tickets, an order of HUB's world-famous pretzels, a HUB 10th anniversary chalice and a raffle ticket for prizes from various Salmon-Safe certified businesses. Each session has only 400 tickets available and the event is expected to sell out. All proceeds from this event benefit the environmental nonprofit Salmon-Safe.
In between sessions, HUB has lined up engaging panel discussions with Salmon-Safe certified partners to discuss why Salmon-Safe certification matters and how breweries and farmers are working together to keep our waterways and our planet healthy.
“We are excited that more than 20 of our industry friends are joining us in brewing original IPAs using ingredients that help protect our beautiful planet,” said Christian Ettinger, HUB’s Brewmaster and Founder. “The relationship between clean and abundant water and great beer is something to protect and celebrate.”
Dan Kent, the executive director of Salmon-Safe added, “The Salmon-Safe IPA Festival is a powerful way to encourage more breweries to source certified hops and malt while educating consumers on the simple choices that we can make for clean rivers and healthy watersheds. With more than 70 crops grown using practices that protect rivers and local salmon and more than 300 supermarkets featuring Salmon-Safe labeled products, the chance to make a positive impact can happen in many places -- including the brewhouse, at the farm level, and at the store.”

5 Port Brewing/ Lost Abbey paired with 5 house made Bacons!
A blend of bourbon barrel-aged Serpent’s Stout and brandy barrel-aged Angels Share, Deliverance is the epic battle being waged between heaven and hell for the souls of mortal men… and your enjoyment in a glass.
The expressive fight for souls on earth begins with molasses and raisins clashing for supremacy. There’s a struggle between licorice and caramel to see which will support with a dash of cocoa exuding as well.
A lively beer on the palette wrestling in a tug of war of sorts for your affection. At first there is booze. Then there are figgy notes with a semi-sweet edge that almost develops were it not for the bakers chocolate and bitterness that balances out in the finish. Clearly this is not a beer for the faint of heart or weakened souls. This is fortuitous beer to accompany you on your journey to heaven or hell should you be delivered.
Cuvee De Tomme
A massive brown ale base that is made from four fermentable sugars including Malted Barley, Raisins, Candi Sugar and Sour Cherries, this beer is fully fermented before being placed in Bourbon barrels where the beer ages for one year with the Sour Cherries and the wild Brettanomyces yeast that we inoculate the barrels with.
One of the most complex and unique beers we make each year.
Cuvee starts with a complex nose of tart cherries, vanilla and dusty cocoa finish. There is also an underlying basis of yeast esters and wild yeast components that result in an extraordinary complex nose.
As this beer is made from our Judgment Day, there are some similarities in the taste profile. However, as this beer is aged in Oak Barrels, there are also additional layers of Vanilla, Tannins and Sourness from the Cherries and the secondary fermentation and extensive aging.
Perhaps no country embraces the use of fruit in beers more so than Belgium. Numerous traditional as well as regional specialty ales are infused with every sort of fruit imaginable. In this way, the flavor of the fruit becomes especially prominent.
Red Poppy Ale is a veritable celebration of Sour Cherries in an explosion of aromas and tastes. Brewed from a brown ale base and aged in our oak barrels for over 12 months, this beer is not for the faint of heart.
The Golden Poppy is the state flower of California and the Red Poppy is found in Flanders Fields where our inspiration for this beer comes from. This beer is 6.5% ABV and is available in 375 ml bottles and on draft at inspired locations.
Red Poppy starts with a complex nose of tart cherries, vanilla and cinnamon like finish. There is also an underlying basis of yeast esters and wild yeast components that result in an extraordinary complex nose.
Red Poppy starts its life out as our Dawn Patrol Dark. Post primary fermentation, we blend this with some of our Amigo Lager at transfer to barrel. During the fermentation in the barrel from the micro organisms, we gain acidity which results in a beer with hints of Vanilla, Tannins and Sourness from the Cherries and the secondary fermentation and extensive aging.

Our massively hopped strong IPA brewed in celebration of our Anniversary each year.
Using Amarillo, CTZ, Citra, Centennial, and Mosaic hops and dry-hopping with CTZ, Citra, and Mosaic, Anniversary Ale has an intensely hoppy body with fresh tones of pine and citrus. A seasonal release that will satisfy any hop-head who has the pleasure to try it. In addition, we don’t want to make people “wait in line” to try an amazing IPA, so we also bottle it!

Summer Pale Ale (SPA) is our version of the iconic West Coast style Pale Ale.
Life’s better at the water’s edge. Be it a beach, a lake, or a sweltering day by the pool. Each of these situations is improved by friends, conversations, and a crisp pale ale. Our SPA is brewed with a juicy and boisterous blend of hops including Chinook, Amarillo, and Cascade. SPA begins with a bouquet of citrus and peach aromas, then leads to a refreshing orange and grapefruit-like dryness, with just a kiss of sweetness on the finish.
AROMA: A largely citric and piney blast of hop aromas greet you. Resinous qualities of fresh leaf hops abound and really drive the aroma of this beer.
TASTE: Your first sip will awake your taste buds with some spicy hop qualities. The finish of the beer is quite dry which allows the hop flavor and intensity to build. Your next sip will confirm these flavors are large and in charge of this beer.

More on Ecliptic Brewing's collaboration Hazy IPA with Modern Times Beer
Portland, Oregon. Earth ... Ecliptic Brewing has teamed with Modern Times Beer for their next Cosmic Collaboration.
John Harris, Ecliptic Brewing Owner and Brewmaster, hoped this collaboration would be a way of welcoming Modern Times to their Portland outpost. “I have enjoyed Modern Times Beer for a few years,” he says, “and when we learned that they were moving to town, I reached out to Jacob in San Diego to see if they were interested in teaming up.”
Hazy IPAs haven’t lost any momentum this year and in deciding what kind of beer to make the two breweries looked at ways to experiment with the popular style. John says, “I had mentioned pineapple with Mat Sandoval, Production Manager of the Belmont Fermentorium, when we were talking about what to make. Mat said we should definitely use Denali hops for their tropical qualities and almost pineapple like character.” The result is a Pineapple Hazy IPA brewed with Denali, Citra & Mosaic hops.
In addition to draft, this will be Ecliptic Brewing’s first release in 500ml bottles. According to Alaric Lawrence, Ecliptic’s Packaging Manager, “It’s an exciting time for us to step in a new direction with our packaged beer. Trends have shown that beer drinkers prefer bottles that are a true pint and easier to finish in one pour.”
About Ecliptic Brewing + Modern Times Pineapple Hazy IPA
Fresh pineapple coalesces with Denali, Citra & Mosaic hops for a citrusy, tropical party of astronomical proportions.
