"An Evening with Rare Barrel" at Brouwer's Cafe
Aug
14
to Aug 15

"An Evening with Rare Barrel" at Brouwer's Cafe

Hailing from Berkeley, California, Rare Barrel has remained one of the Pacific Northwest's unicorns, white whales, or whatever elusive amalgamated creature you can come up with for something out of reach. The simple fact is, when it comes to seeking out something that is only spoken of in beer forums and on social media, Rare Barrel was among those which were highly sought out. But much like the abstract complication of driving your first car, getting to first base with that special someone, or the moment you walked into a bar as a legal adult; eventually, you lose interest in the goal once it has been recovered. Enter Brouwer's Cafe, your source in Seattle for hard to find beers and in some cases spirits.

Back in early 2019, when thirsty-minded people couldn't get enough of Seattle Beer Week, Brouwer's Cafe was hosting their annual Sour Fest. During the event, listed amongst the Cantillions or Oude Gueuze,was a few drafts of Rare Barrel beers including: Across the Sea Sour Ale w/ Coriander and Sea Salt, Apropos of Nothing Sour Ale w/Elderberries and Lavender, Pop’t Art Sour Ale w/ Blueberries, Boysenberries, and Cherries, and Summer’s Gonna Hurt You Sour Ale w/ Peaches and Nectarines. Obviously, Seattle Beer Week is over and obviously, these beers are gone, right? Nope.

According to their website, they are planning a Rare Barrel encore of sorts, featuring the following beers for you to enjoy.

  • Across the Sea Sour Ale w/ Coriander and Sea Salt
    A blend of golden sour beers aged in oak barrels with coriander and sea salt, this beer has whispers of a style almost lost in time. Fermented and soured with a medley of microorganisms, across the sea is where you’ll find the undercurrents of citrus and tides of brine that flow to a bay of liquid gold.

  • Apropos of Nothing Sour Ale w/Elderberries and Lavender
    Sometimes, the most delightful results are prompted by whimsy. Born from an impromptu blending session, Apropos of Nothing is a golden sour beer fermented in oak and aged with elderberries and lavender. In turn, this beer highlights the unique characteristics of both the fruit and flower. With hints of blackberry, lemon, and honey, this lightly tart sour beer is a jammy and refreshing beverage.

  • Pop’t Art Sour Ale w/ Blueberries, Boysenberries, and Cherries
    Pop't Art is a blended red sour beer aged in oak barrels with a crazy amount of fruit. Fermented with a mixed culture, Pop't Art mixes notes of cherry pie filling, ripe blueberries, and jammy boysenberries with hints of marmalade and lemon preserves. Intense and bright, this sour is wildly delicious.

  • Summer’s Gonna Hurt You Sour Ale w/ Peaches and Nectarines
    Winter goes slowly as summer awaits with jewels of fruit, gleaming in the sun. Plump and ripe with juice that makes you lean upon first bite. Overflowing with tart peachy goodness, freshly picked from the farm, it will leave you thirsty. Summer’s gonna hurt you when the season is gone.

Starting at 6 pm, you're encouraged to swing by to order a glass (or four) of these hard-to-get beers in the Pacific Northwest. If you've not tried these elusive beers, then now would be the opportunity to satisfy the urge to scratch by stopping into Brouwer's Cafe, August 14th.

For more information, Brouwer's Cafe's Rare Beer night, visit https://www.brouwerscafe.com/2019/06/august-14th-6pm-an-evening-with-rare-barrel/ for updates, current draft lists and of course Brouwer's Cafe is at 400 North 35th Street in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood.

About Brouwer’s Cafe

We have 64 craft beers on draft, a selection of over 400 bottles from both the U.S. and abroad, an exceptional selection of Scotch and American Whisk(e)ys and a full service bar, and Belgian-inspired cuisine.

Our Belgian-inspired cuisine includes our versions of Belgian classics such as pommes frites (true Belgian fried potatoes), stoofvlees (a thick Belgian stew served on Frites), and the Belgian staple of moules-frites. We also serve a variety of sandwiches, such as our very popular lamb burger, which is ground in house. We also have a selection of salads, desserts, and a rotating specials menu.

We serve Seattle's Fremont neighborhood seven days a week, opening at 11 am. Our "Power Hour" is from 3 pm to 6 pm everyday and boasts a delicious selection of small plates and $1 off all draft beers and well cocktails.

About The Rare Barrel

We are an all-sour beer company. Sour beer is our favorite style of beer. The flavors produced by this unique fermentation and aging process cannot be replicated in any other food or beverage. Due to the involved process, sour beer is not often a commonly brewed style, making it difficult to find. We’d like to help change that.

Aside from our personal preferences for the beer, there are also practical reasons for going all-sour. By focusing completely on sour beer, we can concentrate on learning as much as possible about the reasons why those unique flavors are produced in sours. With our entire focus on sours, we have crafted a cellar around the production of sour beer. Our space is dedicated to the conditioning of barrel-aged sour beers. With high ceilings, a moderate climate and plenty of space, we give our barrels an ideal home to create their unique flavors.
It’s been said that constraint breeds creativity. By adopting a singular focus on crafting sour beer, we plan on thoroughly exploring flavors through both conventional and experimental methods to create exciting new beers.

Rooftop Brew Co. invites you to party with us! Come celebrate good beer and good friends at our tap room, 1220 W. Nickerson St., on Saturday, August 10 from 12pm - 12am. We will be featuring an expanded tasting room using the parking lot next door (thanks to our friends at Greenhome Solutions), food from SoSo Good and Theo's Gyros, ice cream and treats from Street Treats, cornhole as well as live music all day long! This will be an all ages event with face painting and sidewalk chalk for the little ones.

In addition, we will have our Gateway Hazy Pale in cans again! Easy to drink and full of citrus flavor and aroma, this is Rooftop’s “hoppy” beer for people who “don’t like hoppy beers,” designed to help you appreciate the hops without all of the bitterness. We'll also have our Gateway Creamsicle on nitro! Same great beer as the Gateway Hazy... with orange zest and vanilla bean added!

In addition to the awesome swag we already have in the taproom, we will have block party logo tanks and tees, and special limited edition glitter logo tank tops!

We love to help out good causes throughout the year with our ongoing Beer Trumps Hate campaign, and we're turning this into another event to do good for the community. We will be raising money for Seattle Humane, and they will be here that day with a few dogs that will hopefully go home with some of you (and return to Rooftop many more times)!

Think Twice DUI Prevention will be on site as well. We fully support safe drinking, and are happy to have them join us in creating a safe environment to do so!

Have you ever sat outside next to an airport and put down a few cold ones? No? That sounds weird, you say? That’s because you haven’t made it up to Arlington to go see the good people at Skookum, conveniently located adjacent to Arlington Municipal Airport. If you haven’t made the stop, you are definitely missing out, but we might have the next best thing.

On July 31st, we’ll be hosting Hollis and his wares in-house for a night with Skookum. They are one of our favorite Washington breweries and we are excited to be able to pour several of his offerings that evening. Tap list coming soon, both expect both hoppy and rich barley treats from them.

Ecliptic Brewing's 5 Beers for 5 Years, Cosmic Collaborator Night at Peaks and Pints

image sourced from Peaks and Pints

image sourced from Peaks and Pints

Press Release

Your parents’ anniversary got NOTHIN’ on Ecliptic Brewing Co.’s fifth anniversary. You could celebrate with the ‘rents with a nice meal and a card, OR you could celebrate five years of space balls-out craft beer with the Portland brewery and their neighbors, Breakside Brewery, Thursday, July 18, at Peaks and Pints craft beer bar, bottle shop and restaurant in Tacoma’s Proctor District.

Ecliptic Brewing picked Peaks and Pints to showcase their newest Cosmic Collaboration series, “5 Beers for 5 Years,” in which the Portland brewery collaborates with five other esteemed breweries to brew five celestial concoctions, and then taking each collaboration on separate tours supported by tapped craft beer from both breweries. Peaks and Pints hosted the first two collaborations — Brooklyn Brewery in April and Firestone Walker in May. We’re opening the pod bay door again for Ecliptic’s third Cosmic Collaborator, Breakside Brewery, July 18.

Ecliptic Brewing owner and brewmaster, John Harris, worked with Breakside’s brewmaster, Ben Edmunds, to create the Nectarine Sour Ale (8.2%) brewed with pale and Munich malts, wheat and oats, but what provides its unique, fruity flavor — pureed and fresh nectarines. A touch of coriander and Ecliptic’s house Lactobacillus strain add to the classic sour ale flavor profile.

“Ben and I are really stoked to do our first collab,” says Harris in a media release. “We jumped right on the sour style, and Ben suggested nectarines. It’s great to have such awesome friends in the craft beer industry.”

Peaks and Pints will tap the Ecliptic/Breakside collaboration Nectarine Sour Ale, as well as the latest craft beer from both breweries, including Ecliptic’s new Vega #3 IPA and Breakside’s new lagers.

What should you give Ecliptic for their fifth anniversary?

Peaks and Pints isn’t hip to the proper anniversary gift etiquette. We believe you should give paprika on fifth anniversaries. No, wait! It’s throw pillows? Particleboard? Skydiving lessons?

Anyway, Thursday, July 18, let’s aim the telescope at two iconic brewmasters’ craft, drink the Nectarine Sour Ale and other beers from the two breweries and toast Ecliptic’s fifth orbit around the sun and gift them ELO’s 1977 Out of the Blue album.

Perfect!

ECLIPTIC BREWING 5 BEERS FOR 5 YEARS: BREAKSIDE BREWERY, 6 p.m. Thursday, July 18, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, no cover

Peaks and Pints de Belgian Beerloo: Cheese Pairing at Peaks and Pints

Peaks and Pints de Belgian Beerloo: Cheese Pairing at Peaks and Pints

peakspints.jpg

Not that long ago, the idea of ordering a cheese course bespoke a certain affectation, a faintly European snobbery. We Americans ate our cheese straight from cellophane blister packs; we didn’t have time to coddle fragile little bundles wrapped in salt-washed rinds or protected in ash. Today, cheese plates and pairing are everywhere, including Peaks and Pints craft beer bar, bottle shop and restaurant in Tacoma’s Proctor District. In aaddition to our daily charcuterie plate, we present Peaks and Pints de Belgian Beerloo: Cheese Pairing at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 17.

The Belgian beer and cheese pairing is part of our de Belgian Beerloo, a weeklong celebration of Belgian beer Tuesday, July 16-Sunday, July 21, which is Belgian National Day.

Merchant du Vin — the Seattle-based specialty beer importer representing Lindemans, Brasserie du Bocq, Westmalle Trappist and Trappistes Rochefort, to name a few — will provide the Belgian beers for Courtney C. Johnson — a cheesemonger and certified curd nerd living in the Seattle area — to pair with local artisanal cheese. Johnson, a PhD with an ACS CCP, owns PhCheese, a blog dedicated to expanding general knowledge and appreciation for all things cheese. She will explain where each cheese is farmed, whether it’s organic or biodynamic, and who farmed it.

The five Belgian beer/five local artisanal cheese pairing flight will run $30, although each beer will also be available to enjoy individually in tulip glasses. 

Do not expect chunks of cheddar and slices of Alpine Lace, but rather a night of oozy, runny, creamy, smelly, and sharp cheese paired with signature fruity esters and spicy phenols that make Belgium beers spectacular.

Cheers!

PEAKS AND PINTS DE BELGIAN BEERLOO: CHEESE PAIRING, 6 p.m., Wednesday, July 17, Peaks and Pints, 3816 N. 26th St., Basecamp Proctor, Tacoma, $30 flights

Thursday - July 11th (6:30pm - 9pm)- Get ready for a dinner you will never forget. The Cottage (Bothell) will be holding a beer inspired dinner, featuring Foggy Noggin beers served on each course and some dishes will have our beer in the recipe.  We even brewed an exclusive beer for this unique night of taste sensations.  Tickets are required in advance and can be purchased HERE!


An amazing evening with Jim Jamison (and hopefully his wife, Kim) of Foggy Noggin Brewing! We will feature a prix fixe four-course meal with beer pairings, with Jim discussing each of his unique brews. And we'll be closing the evening with an exclusive nitro stout brewed especially for The Cottage!

Ticket price INCLUDES tax, tip, and fees.

-------------------------------------
STARTER 
Mixed Greens Salad
Bit O'Beaver honey vinaigrette, citrus, aged manchego, and hand pulled croutons

Pairing: Bit O’Beaver – English Bitter
The beer that started everything. This is a session beer that you can enjoy several of without paying any consequences. Just the right amount of caramel sweetness and light bitterness to make this beer the definition of “drinkability.” Have you had your Beaver today? 
IBU: 34
ABV: 3.4%
Malts: Maris Otter Pale Ale, Belgian Biscuit, Crystal
Hops: Fuggle, Willamette, Golding

---

APPETIZER 
Matty's Mild Battered Fish & Chips

Pairing: Matty's Mild – English Dark Mild
When we let Matthew create his own Foggy Noggin beer, we didn’t know he would come up with the amazing Matty’s Mild. This might be the quintessential British session beer, like its name suggests, a Mild is known for its low level of hops character and low alcohol content. But this beer is packed with lots of toasty malty flavor that will make you come back for more. Cheers!
IBU: 28
ABV: 3.5%
Malts: Maris Otter, Brown, Chocolate
Hops: Fuggle, Golding

---

MAIN
Duck "à l’Orange"
Barrel Aged House Ale and orange reduction, duck breast, cauliflower puree, and sautéed bitter greens

Pairing: Barrel Aged House Ale
Perhaps the most unique ale on the market. Each 1/2BBL batch is fermented in Hungarian Oak barrels with a perpetual yeast, making each batch unlike any other.
IBU: 57
ABV: 6.3%
Malts: Maris Otter, Amber, Biscuit, Crystal 45
Hops: Brewers Gold, Fuggle, Golding

---

DESSERT
House-made stout ice cream with cocoa coffee cake

Pairing: The Cottage Nitro Chocolate Stout – Russian Imperial Stout
This rich malty stout is big in flavor and smooth and gentle on the palate. The roasty goodness is paired well with the Ecuadorian cocoa nibs that were added in secondary fermentation. Serving this brew on Nitro brings out a luxurious elegance that pairs well with an meal ending desert.
IBU: 62
ABV: 8.2%

Outdoor Music Festival, the Hood River, Oregon brewery brewed Timbeer!, an “All Day Pale” for the Carnation, Washington music festival July 11-13. Peaks and Pints will host a Timber! prefunk with Double Mountain Brewery pouring Timbeer! from our Western red cedar tap log and loading the jukebox with the scheduled performers’ music.

Ticket holders will sip Double Mountain Timbeer! while listening to San Francisco punks Oh Sees, grunge legend Mark Lanegan, and local stars such as Chong the Nomad, Hibou, Haley Heynderickx and many other performers. Dip your nose into the tropical and pine goodness while listening to Portland’s punk blues duo Hillstomp on the stage. Sip the piney pale with the long bitter finish as you dance to Seattle’s all-female Filthy Femcorps band.

Peaks and Pints feels fortunate to have scored a keg and several cases of this easy-drinking pale for our Double Mountain Timbeer! release party. Double Mountain brewers will be in the house with swag and two tickets to Timber! Of course our Double Mountain Cool Camp IPA will be on tap, as well as a few other new beers from the Hood River brewery.
