Brew Review: A Northwest Brewfest & Benefit on April 18, 2018

Seattle, WA, April 1, 2018. Brew Review is a Northwest-centric benefit for the greater good. The Brewfest highlights and benefits union rights, employment rights, small businesses, and breweries who are combining their powers to support a local non-profit—the Unemployment Law Project. 

7 Northwest craft breweries are competing to be the crowd favorite: Elysian, Kulshan, Mollusk, Reuben’s Brews, Two Beers, Seattle Cider Company, and Pike. The guests will judge who of this rotating tap of breweries has the most satisfying 4 oz. pour of the 7 tastes included with each ticket. It will also be fun to see who brings home the giant trophy. 

The silent auction will feature donations from a curated selection of Northwest businesses and non-profits. A few featured items are a pair of Sounders tickets (donated by the best in the MLS), Paramount Theater tickets, a gift certificate to Canlis, and a vacation rental in the Methow Valley. 

Brew Review also shows off how lawyers, unions, and individuals can make an impact for the greater good. Our sponsors are dedicated, pro-employee law firms: McDonald Hoague & Bayless, Breskin Johnson Townsend, Schwerin Campbell Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt, and Terrell Marshall Duadt & Willie. 

Brew Review benefits a great cause: 100% of the funds raised will go to the Unemployment Law Project. The Unemployment Law Project is a non-profit law office that helps people who lost their jobs obtain unemployment benefits while they search for new work. This non-profit makes a little bit go a long way. In 2017, the ULP represented 480 clients at benefits hearings with only 4 staff, 1 fellow, and an army of volunteers. 

With the Seattle community’s help, the ULP has become the comeback kid of the legal services non-profit community. When the economic downturn happened, the office shrunk to 2.5 employees and continued to serve the entire state of Washington and run 2 offices (in Seattle and Spokane). Through the intrepid leadership of the executive director, a faithful staff, generous volunteers, and Brew Review, the Unemployment Law Project has returned to its stride. 

Drinking a beer at Brew Review is more than just a happy hour with your friends; it is joining a community effort to support the unemployed in Washington State. Be there.
