Meet Track 7 Brewing from Sacramento, CA! Established in 2011, Track 7 just entered the Washington market in January. You might have tried their delicious Nukin' Futz Peanut Butter Chocolate Porter during our Chocolate Beer Week.
"Track 7’s approach to beer is in the vein of the firmly-hopped West Coast tradition, but without fidelity to a singular “style”. This unfocused approach allows Track 7 to experiment with all varieties of beer, regardless of American, Belgian, English, or German inspiration."
We're still working on the full tasting lineup, but we'll definitely have on tap their Amarillo Adoration Double IPA. We'll announce the other 4 beers on tap from them next week.
Midnight Sun is bringing down some tasty Alaskan meats to pair with some big beers from our cellar! Beer flows and meat gets sliced at 5:00pm.
