Inspired by retro game shows, the brewery will entertain you with unique prize contests, limited-edition beers, and even a friendly game of Family Feud between nearby Reuben's Brews and Populuxe Brewing.

Besides games, Populuxe Brewing will releases three unique India Pale Ales and one sour. Breaking it down, here are the beers.

  • Contestant #1 India Pale Ale
    West Coast IPA brewed with Experimental Hop 07270. Dank and resinous, this big IPA has a strong, spicy hop-forward character. Double dry hopped to really help the aroma of 07270 to fill the glass. 7.5%ABV, 65IBU

  • Contestant #2 India Pale Ale
    An IPA brewed with Experimental Hop 10416, Contestant #2 has fruit forward orange, citrus, pine and mint aromas. A simple malt bill of organic 2-row and white wheat keep the hop character front and center. 6%ABV, 65IBU

  • Contestant #3 India Pale Ale
    Buddahs Hand Lemondrop Brut IPA! This IPA is brewed with 100% Lemondrop hops with a Pilsner malt and Flaked Rice grist. Buddahs Hand was added post fermentation to help the citrusy Lemondrop hops really pop. Bone dry and bright! 6.5%ABV, 40IBU

  • Survey Says Sour
    American Sour ale brewed with Soursop and Tangerine. Fruity and tart, this refreshing experimental sour bursts with tropical flavor. 5%, 1IBU

Finally, the brewery encourages you to leave the cooking to guest food truck, Peasant Food Manifesto, as they serve up TV dinner-inspired recipes with varying prices.

Populuxe Brewing Company is located at 826 NW 49th Street in Seattle, Washington and Retro Game Show Night is sponsored by Verity Credit Union.

Many of the finest beers from McMenamins' breweries will be sent in to battle, their brewers vying for bragging rights as well as the notorious championship belt. Patrons order trays of beer samples, arranged from lightest to darkest, then it is our guests' official duty to decide who deserves the coveted title. The beers cover the spectrum of brew styles - from Hefeweizen to Oatmeal Stout, Barleywine to Smoked Amber Ale and beyond. Each taster casts one ballot that lists his or her top three choices. (And beware of the brewers' shameless vote-mongering. Don't say we didn't warn you.)

So head to the Hillsdale Brewery & Public House in February to drink, vote and be merry - and may the best brewery win. The winner will assist in the development of the beer that will represent McMenamins at the Oregon Brewers Festival later the same year.
Curious about what brewers and breweries have captured the Belt in year's past? Take a trip down memory lane for here is the lineage, taken directly from the words stamped into those big leather weight belts.

About Sassparilla

Sassparilla was fermented in the bold-dank regions of Chicago and Pittsburgh and spewed onto the sidewalk of Portland's 24th & Alberta from the mouth of a 5-gallon bucket, with homemade instruments in their clutches: a cigar-box guitar made from Granny's old jewelry box, a washtub bass given a severe beating with a stick, a polka dotted bucket drum kit with rusty break-drum & a hat-box bass. Adding to the mix is a smooth, lulling washboard's rat-tatting - articulated by a man named "Sweet Pea'" and a melodic and blustery fiddle/harmonica duo that dances and interjects like a muscular horn section. With passion, fury, speed, hustle and emotion, the whiskey rains like hellfire, the fingers fly over resonators, and this sextet muster their collective will to never play like cowards.

The result is a one-of-a-kind concoction of homemade, punk-infused, Portland blood-jug holler music.

Formed by guitarist Matt Bradley in 2014 to fulfill a local need and exorcise a desire to play some of the greatest music put onto vinyl, Glass of Hearts started small and has been building a powerhouse ever since.  Over the years they've added a number of quality players from the local scene; including a drummer from Baldie, an all male Blondie tribute that played in the  90's, and a local actress and model with pitch perfect vocal control and raw energy to match. 

 Together they've built a look and sound to give you the show you missed from Blondie's first time around.  Combining all the hits with deep cuts and a few surprises, Glass of Hearts prides themselves on a tight, polished, energetic show for fans and casual listeners alike.  Glass of Hearts will bring the music, you just need to bring your dancing shoes and a positive attitude.  

Glass of Hearts, the northwest's premier Blondie tribute.

About Coyote Willow

Coyote Willow blends progressive Folk and Americana, with hints of Celtic influence, for an extraordinary mix of vocal harmony, haunting instrumentals and foot-stomping rhythms. Their exciting combination of cello, guitar and rich vocals combine to take you on a musical journey that will have you laughing, crying, dancing and celebrating the rhythms of life. This artistic partnership of genre-crossing styles flows from Tim Coffey's soulful baritone voice and Kat Hilst's powerful cello, with styles ranging from folk, blues, rock to intriguingly complex instrumentals. Their new CD, "Raising the Barn" was recently named one of the top 5 releases in Central Oregon for 2016 by The Bend Bulletin. In the last year, the duo has opened for national acts such as Robert Earl Keen, Shawn Mullins and Sean Watkins (of Nickel Creek).

Coyote Willow's unique sound hails from a blend of diverse musical backgrounds. Kat Hilst started playing piano at 5, graduating from Oberlin Conservatory. She grew up playing the violin and later switched to the cello. Tim Coffey hit the road at 19, spending 20 years as a professional touring backup guitarist. Their talents attracted the attention of Breedlove Guitars, who invited them to join their stable of artists. The duo is a regional favorite, performing multiple venues, festivals and private events throughout the Pacific Northwest year round.

Press quote: Coyote Willow has a "penchant for making the personal universal in their songs." ~ Brian McElhiney, The Bend Bulletin (Oregon), January 29, 2016

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).

Georgetown’s Matt Edwards, Stoup’s Brad Benson, Pike’s John Hall, and Populuxe’s Peter Charbonnier round out the panel.

 Topics for the evening will include sustainability practices, what’s made Seattle such a hot spot for brewers, and the future of the brewing industry in Seattle. Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a Q&A session and tickets include a pint from Redhook or one of the participating breweries.
