BEERlesque at Brouwer's Cafe

Press Release

BEERlesque – A special evening of world-class beer and the ladies of burlesque to show us how it’s done withn grace and style.

After the rousing success of last year, it was inevitable that we’d give it another go at hosting one of our favorite events of 2018. This year’s performers will be Boom Boom L’Roux, Ruby Mimosa, Lady Drew Blood, and Amara Strutt. Joining us once again to MC will be none other than Sailor St. Claire.

 Like last year, this will be a ticketed event and proceeds will go to charity. The charity this year will be the Old Dog Haven, a wonderful organization dedicated to taking care and finding forever homes for older pups. Tickets are $30 and include a beer from one of the partner breweries – Ayinger, Brasserie du Bocq,Dupont, Lindeman’s, and Weihenstephan.

There will be a change in protocol this year, however. Doors will open at 7 and the show will begin at 9. This will allow attendees to order and enjoy dinner beforehand. Dinner service will end when the show begins to limit interruptions.

Please go to www.brownpapertickets.com to secure your ticket to what we’re sure will be a sold out show.

Brewery Release with Northish Beer Company at Peaks and Pints

Brewery Release with Northish Beer Company at Peaks and Pints

Press Release

Wednesday, Jan. 9, Peaks and Pints will be invaded by fantastical creatures, witness a battle between darkness and light, be visited by a beautiful, innocent maiden and the unicorn she loves, kneel before the bright-red, horny glory Lord of Darkness, and — most importantly — be drenched in glitter.

Enter a world of unicorns, magic swamps, dwarves and rainbows when Northish Beer Co. transforms our weekly Lodge Meeting into a ludicrous, middle ages fairytale starring the Tacoma brewery’s glitter imperial oatmeal stout, "Feat. Tim Curry as The Darkness." 

“We were enamored with the visual style of infamous Ridley Scott’s fantasy film, Legend,” says R.J. Adler, sales executive for Northish. “The film is drenched in glitter. So we embarked on a grand experiment to capture the film’s themes of light and darkness in a glitter beer. Built on a recipe of a rich, dark imperial oatmeal stout, the oats lighten up the roast, revealing a delicate cocoa note. And, we named the beer for the best actor in the movie, ‘Feat. Tim Curry as The Darkness’.”

Legend was a flop when it came out in 1985. Most criticisms of the film then, and now, cite the good/evil clichés at the center of the plot, the overly dark tone of the film and Tom Cruise’s flat performance. But, as Adler notes, the film is visually remarkable including the forest shot inside of a studio and Tim Curry’s Academy Award-nominated makeup. Speaking of Curry, even though this movie represents a lull in Cruise’s career between Risky Business and Top Gun, Curry is especially good in his bombastic personification of Darkness. 

Peaks and Pints will screen a closed caption version of Legend on our 130-foot screen while (hopefully) mystically dressed guests sip on Feat. Tim Curry as The Darkness, as well as other Northish craft beers including cold-conditioned Festish German Lager, Werifesteria barrel-fermented saison and Wolf Link IPA. Katie Lowry of The Warehouse will DJ.

Legend had Tom Cruise, unicorns, and the director of Blade Runner behind the camera. Why did Ridley Scott's fairy tale end so unhappily? Discuss it over a glass of glitter.

STARRING NORTHISH BEER FEAT. TIM CURRY AT THE DARKNESS, 6-9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover

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.

About Glass of Hearts

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

About: This year’s release of B-Bomb is aged in 8-12-year-old American Oak bourbon barrels and is a blend of 9, 12, and 24-month old barrel-aged Winter Ale. B-Bomb achieves distinct bourbon, oak, cacao, leather, toffee, and dark coffee notes from its extended barrel aging and barrel blending. Each barrel contributes a different note, and combining each barrel to create a coherent tone is a distinct art and true pleasure. Please do enjoy this unique barrel-aged ale today but know that B-Bomb will age gracefully for at least another 5 years. Don’t Be Afraid To Be Abominable.

Down & Dirty: 2-Row Pale, Crystal-120, Munich, Roast Barley, Carafa-2, and Chocolate malts with Columbus, Willamette, and US Golding hops.

Beer Pairing Dinner Cruise with Hellbent Brewing and Waterways Cruises and Events

Join us for a special Beer Pairing Dinner Cruise featuring the delicious beers of Hellbent Brewing Company. Learn about craft beer brewing, as you enjoy these outstanding beers expertly paired with a delicious three-course dinner crafted by our Executive Chef.

Hellbent started with three longtime friends and restaurant industry veterans. According to these proud owners, “starting Hellbent was the natural (and the coolest) thing to do, growing directly out of their experience and love of beer.” For years they home-brewed and toiled over their business plan. Finally, after years of fierce determination and hard work they opened their doors in the thick of microbrew country. From their crisp golden ale to their floral jasmine wheat, Hellbent meticulously craft brews with the best ingredients to ensure the highest quality beer every time.

Hops on the Rock: Orcas Island Beer Fest at Prune Alley

Taste your favorite microbrews, explore new ones, and hobnob with brew folk at the Orcas Island Beer Fest. More than a dozen small artisan breweries from around the Northwest will tap their kegs under a heated tent on Prune Alley (so named for the historic fruit orchards that used to stand on this site) in the heart of the charming village of Eastsound on Orcas Island. There will be tasty local food to catch all that delicious beer and live music to sip to. 

The Hops on the Rock festival is literally shutting down the streets of Eastsound to host a weekend of drinking, dancing and NovemBEER events all across  Orcas Island. Live music, local food, and 20+ local breweries from around the region will be in attendance for a destination beer festival like no other. Breweries attending will include Aslan, Georgetown & Black Raven Brewing - among others - who will be showcasing their talents alongside local chefs and the sounds of Bellingham’s hometown heroes, Babycakes.

Admission is free for guests under 21 years of age, but access to festivities will be limited to our live music and food vendor areas.
