Hi friends, Laurel here, owner of Ounces! Hoping you'll join me and our brewery friends to help raise money for a cause very personal to me. I was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor and will be going under the knife (hence the name, lol) on April 3rd to have it removed.
Before the surgery, I'd love for you to come have beer with me and help raise a bunch of money for brain tumor research!
Here's how the fundraiser works: We've partnered with 13 of our brewery friends to raise funds for the American Brain Tumor Association (or ABTA). For 1 night only, both us and the 13 breweries will be tapping up a specific beer and donating $1 of every pint sold (us at Ounces and each of the breweries at their respective taprooms).
So on Thursday, 3/28... head to Ounces or one of the below breweries and lets all drink beer for a good cause!
Partner Breweries: (exact taplist posted at later date)
Holy Mountain Brewing
Urban Family Brewing Company
Aslan Brewing Company
Rooftop Brewing Company
Chainline Brewing Company
Counterbalance Brewing Company

Brew Review: A Northwest Brewfest & Benefit on April 18, 2018
Seattle, WA, April 1, 2018. Brew Review is a Northwest-centric benefit for the greater good. The Brewfest highlights and benefits union rights, employment rights, small businesses, and breweries who are combining their powers to support a local non-profit—the Unemployment Law Project.
7 Northwest craft breweries are competing to be the crowd favorite: Elysian, Kulshan, Mollusk, Reuben’s Brews, Two Beers, Seattle Cider Company, and Pike. The guests will judge who of this rotating tap of breweries has the most satisfying 4 oz. pour of the 7 tastes included with each ticket. It will also be fun to see who brings home the giant trophy.
The silent auction will feature donations from a curated selection of Northwest businesses and non-profits. A few featured items are a pair of Sounders tickets (donated by the best in the MLS), Paramount Theater tickets, a gift certificate to Canlis, and a vacation rental in the Methow Valley.
Brew Review also shows off how lawyers, unions, and individuals can make an impact for the greater good. Our sponsors are dedicated, pro-employee law firms: McDonald Hoague & Bayless, Breskin Johnson Townsend, Schwerin Campbell Barnard Iglitzin & Lavitt, and Terrell Marshall Duadt & Willie.
Brew Review benefits a great cause: 100% of the funds raised will go to the Unemployment Law Project. The Unemployment Law Project is a non-profit law office that helps people who lost their jobs obtain unemployment benefits while they search for new work. This non-profit makes a little bit go a long way. In 2017, the ULP represented 480 clients at benefits hearings with only 4 staff, 1 fellow, and an army of volunteers.
With the Seattle community’s help, the ULP has become the comeback kid of the legal services non-profit community. When the economic downturn happened, the office shrunk to 2.5 employees and continued to serve the entire state of Washington and run 2 offices (in Seattle and Spokane). Through the intrepid leadership of the executive director, a faithful staff, generous volunteers, and Brew Review, the Unemployment Law Project has returned to its stride.
Drinking a beer at Brew Review is more than just a happy hour with your friends; it is joining a community effort to support the unemployed in Washington State. Be there.

We opened our doors in Lake City, Seattle in 2015. Our goal was simply to contribute to the Northwest’s already sterling reputation for serving great craft beer. We were fortunate to occupy a converted 70s-era Chinese restaurant, which we gutted and re-converted into a 20-barrel brewery and 3,000sf tavern that includes an event space, game room, and patio. Lake City and the surrounding neignborhoods have welcomed us with open arms. We’re proud to be served in some of Seattle’s finest restaurants and its most cherished dives. Thanks to this wonderful community and our masterful brewer, Brian, we have survived our first year and are able to offer an array of delicious ales year-round, as well as seasonal lagers and Belgian styles.
U District small businesses and service providers have banded together to help raise funds to pay for a study to find out what kind of implications the recent U District Up Zone will/could have on our diverse business and service provider community. Based on what the study concludes the hope is to work with the City of Seattle to develop a plan to help preserve, strengthen, and improve the long-term livability and economic opportunity for our U District businesses, service providers, and residents.
We strongly support keeping the U District unique. It would be a travesty to see our awesome funky community driven neighborhood lose its heart and soul to development and gentrification.
