It’s Pride Month in Seattle and we are talking to brewers and bar owners who put inclusivity at the heart of their craft. In an industry synonymous with the hyper masculine “bro culture,” how do they ensure a safe (and fun!) place at their tables for all sexual orientations and gender identities? What can be done to recruit and support employees who identify as LGBTQIA+? How do they handle discrimination that comes from customers? What proactive measures can be taken to ensure our businesses are truly places where all can relax and enjoy a pint?Join us for this important discussion and, of course, tasty beer!

Panel Participants:
Elysian Brewing
Marination / Super Six
Pike Brewing Company
Stoup Brewing
Two Beers Brewing Co.
Unicorn

Moderated by Laura Clise, Founder and CEO of Intentionalist.

For every ticket sold, $5 to benefit Lambert House.

Pours provided by Elysian Brewing, Fremont Brewery, Pike Brewing, Stoup and Two Beers Brewing. Big thanks to our contributors!

Press Release

Journey to a mystical realm, where the skies are filled with wonder and fields burst in a glorious green. Tour the grand history of Astoria as you wander the halls of the Flavel Mansion. Expand your hop-perception sipping lupulin delights in the Flavel Garden, with an assortment of fanciful creations from all of the 3-Way IPA collaboration breweries throughout the years. Then, explore the grounds to discover a carefully curated collection of live music, special attractions, and street tacos. Fort George cordially invites you to a festival of Lupulin Ecstasy.

SEASON FOR FRIENDSHIP
It’s a magical time of year on the North Coast. Astorians are rolling out their barbecues, pulling on their warmer weather hoodies, and getting together with friends to collaborate on fresh summer seasonals. 3-Way IPA is on the way, this year with our good buddies from Cloudburst and Ruse. And to really mark the occasion with maximum friendship, we’re inviting all of our 3-Way IPA friends together in a celebration of Lupulin Ecstasy.

Tickets to Lupulin Ecstasy are on sale now. Your purchase grants you admission to Lupulin Ecstasy attractions & live performances, a festival glass & eight tasting tickets, access to fest beers sprinkled around the grounds, and entry into the Captain George Flavel Mansion for the day. Plus, don’t forget those tacos.

MANSION GROUNDS
The Flavel Museum is a classic Queen Anne style home, sitting in downtown Astoria at the foot of 8th Street. Constructed in 1885 by Captain George Flavel, a river pilot and Astoria’s first millionaire, the house and grounds are now owned and operated by the Clatsop County Historical Society. George was a great supporter of Astoria and lavish parties, much like Fort George.

THE CAUSE
A portion of the ticket price will go to the Clatsop County Historical Society, supporting the Uppertown Firefighter’s Museum, the Heritage Museum, and the Flavel House. More information can be found at www.cumtux.org.

ECSTASY
Special selections will be pouring from all of our 3-Way IPA friends - Gigantic, Lompoc, Block 15, Boneyard, Georgetown, pFriem, Melvin, Barley Brown’s, Reuben’s Brews, Great Notion, Holy Mountain, Modern Times, Ruse, Cloudburst, and Fort George. And 3-Way IPA (2019) will make its debut for the summer. Each ticket holder will receive a tasting glass and 8 tasting tickets. Pours are all 6-ounces. Tasting tickets are used for both beer and food at the festival. Additional tasting tickets will be available for purchase. You must be 21+ to purchase and redeem a festival ticket, however minors are welcome when accompanied by a ticket holder.

This is the second time we’ve made this beer to raise money for the charity North Helpline, a poverty assistance and food bank service right across the street from our brewery. Their essential work is summed up by their motto:

“We believe that all deserve adequate food, housing, and respect. We assist our neighbors in obtaining basic needs that affirm their human dignity and worth.”

Watershed Pub & Kitchen, North Helpline, and Hellbent Brewing all came together again to create a beer and an event that support our neighborhood--the Northgate and Lake City communities (hence “GateCity IPA”). A host of local bars and restaurants are participating to make the GateCity IPA project come to life. At every location during Seattle Beer Week (May 10th-May 19th), $1 per pint of GateCity IPA will be donated to North Helpline.

Pub Crawl Information

Another reason to check out this beer is that last year, at the Washington Beer Awards, GateCity IPA won the gold medal in the American Style IPA category!! It’s brewed with all Washington ingredients, including malt from Skagit Valley Malting and aggressive amounts of Citra, Simcoe, and Mosaic hops from the Yakima Valley. This beer is a pale IPA with gentle bready overtones from the malt and vibrant mango, papaya, citrus and pine aromas from the hops.

ABV 7.3% 62 IBU

Another Night with Great Notion (2019 Ed.) at Brouwer's Cafe

Beer Week is soon upon us and as you are all aware, we host a couple pretty cool events during that time. Well, we usually sprinkle a smaller night in there to round things out… usually. This year, being the gluttons for punishment that we are, we’ve decided to host one of the most talked about breweries in the PNW – Great Notion down in Portland. Last time we hosted them, it was a packed house and all 6 kegs kicked within a couple hours and we’d expect nothing less this time around.

We’ll be tapping 5 or 6 of their hoppy treats (we’re keeping a couple goodies for Stout and Sour Fest) at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 14th. Come out for a (hopefully) beautiful sunny day during an off day of Seattle Beer Week

Gruff Brewing - Atwood Ales Assistant to the Regional Manager release at Gruff Brewing

Gruff Brewing - Atwood Ales Assistant to the Regional Manager release at Gruff Brewing

Friday, April 19th, Gruff Brewing and Atwood Ales celebrate the release of their collaboration ale, “Assistant to the Regional Manager". A Belgian-style saison made with estate-grown beets, the release celebrates two of Whatcom County's two smallest breweries coming together. As Atwood Ales recalls it the conversation started when Atwood Ales volunteered their golden beets, grown on their farm near Blaine, Washington. The result is a beer that imparts earthy notes, inter-played with the soft breadiness provided by the malts, and a balanced bitterness throughout.

Look for this to be released at Gruff Brewing's taproom, just down the street from Boundary Bay Brewing Company & Bistro.

While you're there, enjoy "The Office"-themed trivia for $1 per person (with a maximum of 6 per team), a costume contest, and of course "Assistant to the Regional Manager" on draft. Everything starts at 6 pm with the release of Assistant to the Regional Manager, followed by trivia at 7 pm.

Gruff Brewing is located at 104 E Maple St #101, Bellingham, WA 98225. For more information visit https://www.gruff-brewing.com/.

About Gruff Brewing Company

When describing the origins of a business it can be easy to list the details while losing sight of the excitement that led to them. You can say something about how Gruff Brewing was started in a garage in 2013 by three friends who were born and raised in Bellingham Washington. You can go further into the details by talking about how those same three friends spent their childhood winters plowing through the powder at Mt. Baker together, and spent summers exploring the Pacific Northwest and skating every piece of fresh pavement they could find. But those details don’t describe the excitement that led three childhood friends to spend every free moment they had brewing beer together, the joy of sharing a new creation with friends in a soaking wet garage with the doors open on a frigid February afternoon, or the hope that others will enjoy their beer as much as they’ve enjoyed making it.

About Atwood Ales

Established in 2016 in rural, northwest Washington State, our small, family farm grows ingredients for the on-site brewery where we produce unique ales inspired by French and Belgian farmhouse brewing traditions.

We start with local ingredients: water from our local aquifer; malt from less than 50 miles away in the Skagit Valley; and our estate-grown hops. Then, we add other ingredients sourced from our own farm; gathered and foraged from the peripheries of our property; or purchased from local organic farmers, producers and processors. Finally, we ferment at ambient temperatures, in open tanks, with expressive yeast strains, before packaging and bottle conditioning the vast majority of our beers. Our beers are meant to represent some aspect of time and place, with the ingredients, seasons, weather, microbes and our brewer all having both intentional and spontaneous influences on the flavors of our beers.

Our unique, bottle conditioned and draft farmhouse ales are available throughout western Washington and in limited quantities in British Columbia and Florida.
