Sandy Paws Baltic-style Porter release at Heater Allen Brewery

We will be releasing Sandy Paws, our Baltic Porter, at the Tap Room on Saturday November 10th. This year we have two different labels, each with a different dog; Lottie, a sheep-doodle, graces one of the labels and Noci, a terrier, is on the other (labels can be viewed at the bottom of the email). We'll be pouring tastes and steins, and selling bottles of Sandy Paws along with our other beers. The beer is tasting delicious--malty, roasty, and rich, and we will have soft pretzels available for purchase. Also, Lisa recently collaborated on two beers over at Modern Times in Portland, Tentbier (a fest bier/marzen hybrid) and Path of Perspective (a hazy IPA), which we will have on tap for the event as well.

Family Jewels Kenmore Ball Crawl along the Kenmore's Brew Row

Family Jewels Kenmore Ball Crawl along the Kenmore's Brew Row

Have a "Ball" at the Family Jewels Kenmore Ball Crawl!  Enjoy a taster tray at each of Cairn Brewing, 9 Yards Brewery and 192 Brewing Co., our own local craft breweries located on Kenmore's Brew Row, right on the Burke Gilman trail.  The beers will be individually curated by each brewery for this special fundraising event.  Enjoy the locally-famous Nut Hut, Beer Bingo, swag and a hot meal from Cairn Brewing's featured food truck or 192’s kitchen.  Registration is only 25 bucks - the beer alone is worth more than that!  And because the breweries are just blocks from each other, THERE'S NO RUNNING NECESSARY!  You can walk or you can crawl, but however you do it, come on down!

The Ball Crawl benefits the Family Jewels Foundation, a Bothell charity whose vision is to eradicate preventable testicular cancer deaths.  Did you know that testicular cancer is the #1 cancer in males ages 15-44?  Importantly, it is 95-98% curable when caught early.  Unfortunately, due to the very nature of young men -- feeling invincible, not wanting to seek medical care and, perhaps most of all, embarrassment -- half of all males with testicular cancer do not seek medical care until the cancer has spread to other parts of their body. Tragically, over 400 guys every year die of this highly-curable disease.  

In loving memory of Bothell athlete Jaimeson Jones, who died of testicular cancer at age 20 (first diagnosed at age 14), the Family Jewels Foundation uses passion for men’s health to deal head-on with the uncomfortable but critical topic of testicular cancer, pushing through awkwardness and embarrassment with a tongue-in-cheek, humorous approach to stop males from dying from this highly-curable disease.

Lomporter Lomparty at Lompoc Brewing's Sidebar

Press Release

PORTLAND, Ore. …  Lompoc Brewing recently took home a Gold Medal for its Lomporter Premium Northwest Porter at the 2018 Great American Beer Festival® in Denver, Colo. The Portland brewery will celebrate its historic win with a Lomporter Lomparty on Friday, October 26, from 4pm to 10pm at Sidebar, Lompoc’s barrel tasting room located at 3901 N Williams Ave. The event is for ages 21 and up.

The Lomporter Lomparty will feature a Dark Beer Taster Tray for $16 that will include its award-winning Lomporter, as well as 2009 Bourbon Barrel Aged Monster Mash, 2010 Batch 69 Baltic Porter, 2012 Black Mamba Sour Stout, 2016 8 Malty Nights, and 2018 Monster Mash Imperial Porter. 

At 7pm, Lompoc owner Jerry Fechter and Head Brewer Bryan Keilty will oversee a cake cutting ceremony featuring a rich chocolate cake made with Lomporter, with complimentary slices for attendees.

Guests who wear black in honor of the occasion will receive a gratis raffle ticket; there will be several drawings for a number of Lompoc prizes. The event will also offer Lomporter six packs for sale, with one six pack featuring a hidden gold coin. The lucky purchaser who finds the gold coin will win a brew day at Lompoc Brewing. Attendees can also visit and take photos with Lompoc’s cast of mascots, including Geraldo Brewvana and Sir Pamplemousse.

Lomporter is a classic robust porter that offers a creamy taste of dark chocolate complemented by dark cherry and hints of coffee. Brewed with dark wheat, rauch, and chocolate malts, this beer strikes a fine balance between heavy and light. It’s robust enough to sip, but smooth enough to have another. It comes in at 6.4 percent ABV and is available in 12-oz. cans and on draft.

Lomporter won its gold medal in the robust porter category, out of a total of 91 entries. This marks the second GABF medal win for Lompoc; the Portland brewery took home a silver for its classic Proletariat Red in 2015.

About Lompoc Brewing
Established in 1996, Lompoc Brewing is a longtime Portland favorite that brews eight year-round beers and an ever-rotating lineup of seasonals. You can find Lompoc in bottles, cans and on draft at locations throughout Oregon and Washington, and at its three Portland neighborhood pubs: 5th Quadrant and Sidebar in North Portland, and Oaks Bottom in Southeast. Lompoc beers are proudly brewed in #LompocOregon, a state of mind.

Two Simple Proofs of Global Warming at the Worthy Garden Club

Two Simple Proofs of Global Warming at the Worthy Garden Club

Two Simple Proofs of Global Warming:

The "smoking guns" that prove fossil fuels are warming the Earth.

Saturday, October 24th: Doors open @6:30 lecture @7pm

Free event - Seating is limited, come early!

Location: Worthy Hop Mahal

Humans burning fossil fuels are responsible for 100% of the excess heat building up in our oceans and atmosphere, but half the people you know are ideologically preconditioned to reject that fact. Too much of its supporting evidence comes from sources they don't trust, and the sources they do trust provide them with an ample supply of alternative facts.


Fortunately, basic science has given us two "smoking guns" that provide the solid proof laying the blame squarely on fossil fuels. They are easy to understand, and no part of either proof is in any dispute. Here are your two talking points that will make you invincible in any global warming conversation.

About the speaker:
Science writer Brian Dunning is the host and producer of the Skeptoid podcast (skeptoid.com) with a weekly audience of 127,000 listeners, and the author of seven books on scientific skepticism. He has appeared on numerous radio shows and television documentaries, and also hosts the science video series inFact with Brian Dunning (infactvideo.com). A computer scientist by trade, Brian uses new media to showcase the rewards of science and critical thinking. He is a member of the National Association of Science Writers and lives in central Oregon with his family.

Fresh Hops Beers to benefit the Silverton Area Community at Seven Brides Brewing

to Sep 30

Fresh Hops Beers to benefit the Silverton Area Community at Seven Brides Brewing

  • Seven Brides Brewery and Taproom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.

It's that time again. Time to celebrate another year with Lake City Way's Hellbent Brewing Company. Started in 2015, Hellbent was started with the goal of giving Lake City and North Seattle choices on where they had a beer. Based on the positive feedback and a brewery not willing to rest until it's made every style and come up with every name, we think they will be around for years to come. But enough about forecasts, let's talk about June 9th.

Starting at 12 pm, the brewery's taproom opens with their usual assortment of beers, as well as two new ones in Anniversary IPA and Peanut Butter and Jelly Stout. Besides beers, the brewery will host food trucks Lil J's SuperDawgsIsland blends acaiMoonshine-BBQWicked Good Grinders, and Bella M'Briana Food Truck. Finally, guests should expect entertainment from Collection of Lone Souljahs -Island Reggae, Alki Jones LIVE -Rock, Brass Monkeys - and Beastie Boys Tribute

Unfortunately, all will come to pass at the stroke of around 12 am, as they brewery looks forward to their 4th year, in 2019. For more information on music and food truck start/stop times, as well as this year's limited release beers, continue reading below.

Hellbent Anniversary IPA. 7% ABV | 63 IBUs

In honor of Hellbent's third anniversary we have produced an ultra premium IPA to celebrate. This beer bursts with citrus followed by a pungent pine punch and finishing with mellow tropical hop aromas. It is unfiltered for maximum hop flavor. 

Small Tank Series: Peanut Butter and Jelly Stout. 6.4%

Peanut butter and raspberry are added to this light-bodied, “summer stout” to make your inner child giddy with delight.
