Birthday Dinner at Brother Barrel

Birthday Dinner at Brother Barrel

There's probably no need to remind you but we have a feeling that Seattle Beer Week planning isn't on your priority list. And this is ok if you're the kind of person who prefers to live in the moment (or day) and plan accordingly. This works most of the time when one is pondering what beer festival, beer tasting, or brewery-sponsored event is on the itinerary. This, however, doesn't work when one considers there is only a handful of brewery dinners listed on the official Seattle Beer Week website. Instead of stressing dinners or Seattle Beer Week, the folks at Brother Barrel in Seattle's Lake City neighborhood invite you to put June 2nd on the calendar.

Starting at 5 pm and with your $75 admission, Brother Barrel celebrates their Anniversary with a 4-course dinner with beers from Elliott Bay Brewing Company's Dan Ashley and food from Elliott Bay Brewing's Brother Barrel kitchen. And the courses? Well take a look for yourself, courtesy the staff at Brother Barrel.

Starting with a brief cocktail reception, hosted by Brother Barrel's award-winning lead bartender, guests will be invited to pair sips from the bar with a light snack before the first course.

Moving onto the main menu, here's what the kitchen staff have to say about courses one thru four.

Reuben's Brews 6th Anniversary Celebration at Brouwer's Cafe

Reuben's Brews 6th Anniversary Celebration at Brouwer's Cafe

From his humble beginnings as a garage homebrewer, thanks to a thoughtful gift from his son, Reuben, Adam Robbins has always looked to create the best brews he could. After using family, friends, and strangers to test his recipes – and winning a silver medal at a national homebrew competition – he embarked on his own full-time beer journey alongside his wife, Grace, and brother-in-law, Mike.

That was 6 years ago, and by all accounts, he has been incredibly successful in both the local and national beer scene. He has gone from a small 7-barrel brewhouse tucked away in Ballard, to two brewhouses, 15-barrel and 30-barrel, capable of upwards of 13,000 gallons of beer a year. That’s enough beer to quench the immense thirst of Washington drinkers.

The team at Reuben’s has been heavily involved in the community since the inception of the brewery. It has been a point of pride for them to be good stewards and friends of their fellow neighborhood residents. You can frequently find Reuben’s beers at almost every beer festival or other community gathering where fine beer is poured.

We’ve always been huge fans of the work they do in Ballard and in 2015, they created Gobsmacked, an amazing IIPA, for our tenth anniversary. More recently, we have been partnering with them to produce Triumvirate, our double-gold medal winning house beer, for over two years now. We couldn’t be happier to have the relationship we do with the team at Reuben’s and we are excited to be able to celebrate their 6th Anniversary with them. Come out on August 3rd to congratulate Adam and the rest of the family on six years of making bloody good beer.

 “There have been a lot of great brewers that have impacted our process, our mission, our values and our success over these three decades,” said Fish, “I’m glad they’ve chosen to come back to commemorate the time we’ve spent together.” These brewers will head to Drake Park on Saturday, June 30, to help showcase the beer and reminisce about the days at Deschutes.

The Deschutes Brewery 30th anniversary collaboration “family tree” includes John Harris, Deschutes Brewery’s original brewmaster with Ecliptic Brewery, Frank Appleton a brewing consultant responsible for creating the recipes of Deschutes’ beloved brands such as Black Butte Porter and Cascade Golden Ale, Tim Gossack from Bell’s Brewery, Tony Lawrence from Boneyard Brewery, long time brewer Mark Vickery, Paul Arney from The Ale Apothecary, and Cam O’Connor and Larry Sidor now with Crux Fermentation Project.

The guest collaborators partnered with current Deschutes Brewery brewers, Veronica Vega, Ryan Schmiege, Robin Johnson and Ben Kehs to make the unique brews. All were made at Deschutes’ Bend brewing facility.

 “There have been a lot of great brewers that have impacted our process, our mission, our values and our success over these three decades,” said Fish, “I’m glad they’ve chosen to come back to commemorate the time we’ve spent together.” These brewers will head to Drake Park on Saturday, June 30, to help showcase the beer and reminisce about the days at Deschutes.

3rd Anniversary at Hellbent Brewing Company

  • Hellbent Brewing Company (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.

Gigantic 6th Anniversary at Gigantic Brewing Company

Seriously, we will be the first to admit this got lost in the mailbox. Maybe it was our overly aggressive spam filter, or maybe it was we forgot that Tuesday, May 8th, is Gigantic Brewing Company's 6th BIRTHDAY!

But rather than make a big deal of it, the brewery is keeping things casual with $3 pints all day. 

Nope, that's it. Just stop in May 8th, drink a few pints and maybe by a shirt or something. 

Cheers

BREWVANA 7th anniversary at Royale Brewing

Press Release

PORTLAND, ORE.  ... BREWVANA is celebrating seven years of supporting and promoting the history and culture of the craft brewing industry in Portland Oregon! The anniversary party will be at Royale Brewing (55 NE Farragut St, Portland, OR 97211) on Sunday, April 8th from 2 to 6 PM.  The event is all ages, with music and fun for all. A free shuttle will be provided from SE Growler Guys (816 SE 8th Ave #109, Portland, OR 97214) to the event. The shuttle will pick up roughly every 30 minutes. The event is free and no RSVP is necessary.

BREWVANA was born out of a passion for craft beer. Ashley Rose Salvitti served beer at breweries in Portland before buying a short bus and committing to introduce guests visiting from all over the world to the city's thriving craft beer industry. In 2011 BREWVANA hosted the inaugural tour on Friday, April 8th visiting four locations: Cascade Brewing, Green Dragon/ Buckman Botanical Brewery (now Rogue Eastside), Laurelwood Brewing Company and Upright Brewing. Lisa Morrison (the beer goddess) was talked into hopping on the bus at the 2nd location and reading from her book Craft Beers of the Pacific Northwest while guests enjoyed lunch.  Brewmaster Chad Kennedy and Shane Watterson served specialty beers out of the walk in cooler. Participants had a great time and they've all been on tours since then. The tours have evolved over the years to include more beer education, new breweries, new tour options including walking and private tours. One thing remains the same - guests leave buzzing in the euphoric state of BREWVANA, with a new appreciation for beer.

"I played tour guide for fun and now I get to do it for life!" says Ashley Rose. "What I love the most is collaborating with our beer friends. We provide an opportunity for our partners to tell their story, showcase their brand and introduce future fans to their new favorite beers." BREWVANA works with thelocations to create the best experience possible for their guests. The company has been featured on the Travel Channel and Start Up and has a string of 5 star reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor. "I can't wait to see what the future holds for BREWVANA, as Portland grows as a beer destination."

ABOUT POPULUXE BREWING:
Co-founders and husband/wife Peter Charbonnier and Amy Besunder started Populuxe Brewing in 2012. Peter had been a home brewer for many years and as his brewing equipment began to outgrow their garage, they began to seek out a commercial space. They found a slightly larger garage within two blocks of their longtime home in Ballard and after 8 months of rushing home after work to do demo and construction, filling out paperwork with various government agencies, piecing together furnishings and basically DYI'ing together a brewery, they opened the doors to their nanobrewery. They entire project cost the couple less than $30,000. 

The immediate response was overwhelmingly positive with neighbors praising the quality of the beersand the casual and fun environment. Populuxe hosted family happy hours, live music, local artists and the best food trucks in town. Populuxe is also home to Ballard's largest beer garden.
 

In 2016 a larger space became available on the same lot and Peter and Amy decided to expand. In September of 2017, Populuxe moved across the beer garden to a state of the tasting room complete with a full arcade. This project cost a whole lot more than $30,000.

Kells Brewery Anniversary at Kells Brewery

PORTLAND, Ore. – Kells Brewery is observing its fifth anniversary this month and the pub is marking the occasion with a celebration on Saturday, Sept. 23 from 3 p.m.to close. Festivities will include live music, a Rose City Futsal arena in the parking lot, discounts on the newly released Kells IPA six-packs, and the debut of Kells' two fresh hop beers, one of which will feature hops freshly picked from bines at the Kells Farm in Wilsonville.

This will mark the first harvest of hops from the Kells Farm; the quarter-acre test plot, originally planted in 2016, included Chinook, Cascade and Centennial varietals. According to head brewer Garrett McAleese, “The goal is to grow one acre of the best yielding varietal while continuing to grow others in the test plot; we plan on eventually using the hops in our IPA  year round.”

The community is invited to help pick the hops off the bines at Kells Brewery next Wednesday, Sept. 13 beginning at Noon and continuing until all the hops are picked. The first five buckets filled with fresh hop cones will grant the picker a complimentary six-pack of Kells IPA in 12-ounce cans (one six-pack per bucket, no matter how many pickers involved). The hops will be added to two fresh hop beers that will debut at the Fifth Anniversary Celebration a week later, including an Amarillo Kölsch on tap and the Kells Farm-hopped Cascadian Dark Lager poured off the zwickle.

The celebration will also let soccer fans play pick up games in the Rose City Futsal portable arena in the parking lot. At 7 p.m., owner Gerard McAleese and lead brewer and pub manager Garrett McAleese will raise a toast in honor of the occasion. And local singer/songwriter Jordan Harris will round out the evening with live music in the pub from 9 p.m. to Midnight.


The Kells Brewery Fifth Anniversary Celebration is free and open to all ages.
