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.

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

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.

3-Way IPA Release at The Beer Junction

3-Way IPA Release at The Beer Junction

Press Release

[Astoria, Oregon] The concept is rock solid. Each year Fort George travels the Pacific Northwest, tastes a lot of great beer, and looks for two breweries making innovative and exciting IPAs. After the invitations are extended in late summer, the collaborators come to Astoria to hang out, share more beer, and most importantly work together on a concept for the next 3-Way IPA.

SUMMER 2019 LINEUP

For 2019, Cloudburst Brewing joined the party. This award winning Seattle brewery brings with them a ton of experience, lead by Steve Luke, the former head of experimental brewing at Elysian and creator of the Space Dust IPA recipe, among others. And they also brought the Corporate yeast strain for this year’s beer. Where did they get it? We weren’t asking any questions.

Although Ruse Brewing in Portland is only two-years-old, these folks are definitely not unknown in the brewing world. Co-Founders Devin Beware and Shaun Kalis came from Culmination Brewing before branching out on their own. And already Ruse has been voted by the Willamette Week Oregon Beer Awards as both best new brewery and best small brewery in Oregon.

BETA IPA TESTING

After three days of getting to know each other in Astoria, they began the Beta IPA process with the first small batches starting in November of last year. The initial idea was to brew something in between a New England style hazy and a West Coast IPA - unfiltered with pilsner malt, red wheat, golden promise, plus ample discussions about pH levels in the whirlpool and the amounts of each hop addition.

Hops are the final and perhaps most important component to the 3-Way IPA collaboration. Sourcing the thousands of pounds needed to brew this beer can be tricky. Three hops were initially chosen - Cashmere, Idaho 7, and Citra. However, they also hatched a plan to try out different dominant dry hops in each batch, while also making minor adjustments to the rest of the recipe.

THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR

3-Way IPA combines all of the fruit-forwardness of a hazy, but with that classic touch of bitterness from a West Coast IPA. Many Beta IPA test batches were brewed (and enjoyed) to achieve that balance. The result is a bright, citrus fruit bomb that doesn’t finish too heavy or sweet. And it also doesn’t hold back on the hops.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. As an added wrinkle to this year’s collaboration, that dry hop will also rotate throughout 3-Way IPA season. The first batches are heavily dry hopped with Citra (notes of orange juice, grapefruit zest, and bitter lemon peel). As the weeks go by, supporting hops will take a starring role. And you’ll be able to see which hop is dominant by checking the bottom of your can.

For those of you with tickets to Lupulin Ecstasy, taste the new 3-Way IPA on Saturday, May 25th at the historic Flavel Mansion & Grounds, surrounded by lupulin delights from every 3-Way IPA collaborator throughout the years. If you don’t have a ticket, unfortunately it is sold out. But 3-Way IPA will be on sale at Fort George starting Sunday, May 26th. And at the brewery, there are no limits on can sales.

Join all three collaborators for the first release parties in Seattle on Friday, May 31st at Chuck’s Hop Shop Central District, and in Portland at Ruse Brewing on Saturday, June 1st. Then look for 3-Way IPA cans & draft releasing at pubs & bottleshops near you, starting June 3rd. Fort George is distributed only in the Pacific Northwest.

3-WAY IPA CELEBRATIONS

Come hang out and enjoy a pint of 3-Way IPA with us. You’re guaranteed to find it on tap at these locations, on these days. Or, you can always search for Fort George beer at fortgeorgebrewery.com/beerfinder.

The Schooner Zodiac is excited to continue our long tradition of welcoming local microbreweries aboard for beer tastings under sail. Each ‘Ales N’ Sails’ excursion we will host a local brewery to join us and conduct tastings of their favorite beers for our passengers. Our guests can mingle with brewery representatives and learn about the brewing process, the inspiration behind each recipe and the different styles of beer. The Zodiac’s cook will prepare a delicious and unique meal of galley fare meant to complement the beers.

There is no better way to enjoy northwest micro-brews than while catching the sunset from the deck of a classic 160-foot sailing gaff rigged schooner. These cruises are extremely popular so we recommend that you book well in advance!

3-Way IPA Release at Peaks and Pints

3-Way IPA Release at Peaks and Pints

Press Release

[Astoria, Oregon] The concept is rock solid. Each year Fort George travels the Pacific Northwest, tastes a lot of great beer, and looks for two breweries making innovative and exciting IPAs. After the invitations are extended in late summer, the collaborators come to Astoria to hang out, share more beer, and most importantly work together on a concept for the next 3-Way IPA.

SUMMER 2019 LINEUP

For 2019, Cloudburst Brewing joined the party. This award winning Seattle brewery brings with them a ton of experience, lead by Steve Luke, the former head of experimental brewing at Elysian and creator of the Space Dust IPA recipe, among others. And they also brought the Corporate yeast strain for this year’s beer. Where did they get it? We weren’t asking any questions.

Although Ruse Brewing in Portland is only two-years-old, these folks are definitely not unknown in the brewing world. Co-Founders Devin Beware and Shaun Kalis came from Culmination Brewing before branching out on their own. And already Ruse has been voted by the Willamette Week Oregon Beer Awards as both best new brewery and best small brewery in Oregon.

BETA IPA TESTING

After three days of getting to know each other in Astoria, they began the Beta IPA process with the first small batches starting in November of last year. The initial idea was to brew something in between a New England style hazy and a West Coast IPA - unfiltered with pilsner malt, red wheat, golden promise, plus ample discussions about pH levels in the whirlpool and the amounts of each hop addition.

Hops are the final and perhaps most important component to the 3-Way IPA collaboration. Sourcing the thousands of pounds needed to brew this beer can be tricky. Three hops were initially chosen - Cashmere, Idaho 7, and Citra. However, they also hatched a plan to try out different dominant dry hops in each batch, while also making minor adjustments to the rest of the recipe.

THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR

3-Way IPA combines all of the fruit-forwardness of a hazy, but with that classic touch of bitterness from a West Coast IPA. Many Beta IPA test batches were brewed (and enjoyed) to achieve that balance. The result is a bright, citrus fruit bomb that doesn’t finish too heavy or sweet. And it also doesn’t hold back on the hops.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. As an added wrinkle to this year’s collaboration, that dry hop will also rotate throughout 3-Way IPA season. The first batches are heavily dry hopped with Citra (notes of orange juice, grapefruit zest, and bitter lemon peel). As the weeks go by, supporting hops will take a starring role. And you’ll be able to see which hop is dominant by checking the bottom of your can.

For those of you with tickets to Lupulin Ecstasy, taste the new 3-Way IPA on Saturday, May 25th at the historic Flavel Mansion & Grounds, surrounded by lupulin delights from every 3-Way IPA collaborator throughout the years. If you don’t have a ticket, unfortunately it is sold out. But 3-Way IPA will be on sale at Fort George starting Sunday, May 26th. And at the brewery, there are no limits on can sales.

Join all three collaborators for the first release parties in Seattle on Friday, May 31st at Chuck’s Hop Shop Central District, and in Portland at Ruse Brewing on Saturday, June 1st. Then look for 3-Way IPA cans & draft releasing at pubs & bottleshops near you, starting June 3rd. Fort George is distributed only in the Pacific Northwest.

3-WAY IPA CELEBRATIONS

Come hang out and enjoy a pint of 3-Way IPA with us. You’re guaranteed to find it on tap at these locations, on these days. Or, you can always search for Fort George beer at fortgeorgebrewery.com/beerfinder.

It’s Pride Month in Seattle and we are talking to brewers and bar owners who put inclusivity at the heart of their craft. In an industry synonymous with the hyper masculine “bro culture,” how do they ensure a safe (and fun!) place at their tables for all sexual orientations and gender identities? What can be done to recruit and support employees who identify as LGBTQIA+? How do they handle discrimination that comes from customers? What proactive measures can be taken to ensure our businesses are truly places where all can relax and enjoy a pint?Join us for this important discussion and, of course, tasty beer!

Panel Participants:
Elysian Brewing
Marination / Super Six
Pike Brewing Company
Stoup Brewing
Two Beers Brewing Co.
Unicorn

Moderated by Laura Clise, Founder and CEO of Intentionalist.

For every ticket sold, $5 to benefit Lambert House.

Pours provided by Elysian Brewing, Fremont Brewery, Pike Brewing, Stoup and Two Beers Brewing. Big thanks to our contributors!

It’s a super fun day celebrating dogs and beer!”

Jen Boyd, Cairn co-owner, said “Being part of the community is so important to the Cairn team. Support for local animal rescue efforts holds a special place in our hearts at Cairn. We adopted our own dog, Rosie, as a rescue from Homeward Pet Adoption Center in 2017. She’s a daily reminder of how important it is for every dog to have a home full of love and laughter. We’re delighted to partner with MustLuvBoxers again for a day of dog fun, fundraising, and beer! A taproom full of pups is the absolute best afternoon. ”

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.

3-Way IPA *can release at Chuck's Central District

3-Way IPA *can release at Chuck's Central District

Press Release

[Astoria, Oregon] The concept is rock solid. Each year Fort George travels the Pacific Northwest, tastes a lot of great beer, and looks for two breweries making innovative and exciting IPAs. After the invitations are extended in late summer, the collaborators come to Astoria to hang out, share more beer, and most importantly work together on a concept for the next 3-Way IPA.

SUMMER 2019 LINEUP

For 2019, Cloudburst Brewing joined the party. This award winning Seattle brewery brings with them a ton of experience, lead by Steve Luke, the former head of experimental brewing at Elysian and creator of the Space Dust IPA recipe, among others. And they also brought the Corporate yeast strain for this year’s beer. Where did they get it? We weren’t asking any questions.

Although Ruse Brewing in Portland is only two-years-old, these folks are definitely not unknown in the brewing world. Co-Founders Devin Beware and Shaun Kalis came from Culmination Brewing before branching out on their own. And already Ruse has been voted by the Willamette Week Oregon Beer Awards as both best new brewery and best small brewery in Oregon.

BETA IPA TESTING

After three days of getting to know each other in Astoria, they began the Beta IPA process with the first small batches starting in November of last year. The initial idea was to brew something in between a New England style hazy and a West Coast IPA - unfiltered with pilsner malt, red wheat, golden promise, plus ample discussions about pH levels in the whirlpool and the amounts of each hop addition.

Hops are the final and perhaps most important component to the 3-Way IPA collaboration. Sourcing the thousands of pounds needed to brew this beer can be tricky. Three hops were initially chosen - Cashmere, Idaho 7, and Citra. However, they also hatched a plan to try out different dominant dry hops in each batch, while also making minor adjustments to the rest of the recipe.

THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR

3-Way IPA combines all of the fruit-forwardness of a hazy, but with that classic touch of bitterness from a West Coast IPA. Many Beta IPA test batches were brewed (and enjoyed) to achieve that balance. The result is a bright, citrus fruit bomb that doesn’t finish too heavy or sweet. And it also doesn’t hold back on the hops.

But the fun doesn’t stop there. As an added wrinkle to this year’s collaboration, that dry hop will also rotate throughout 3-Way IPA season. The first batches are heavily dry hopped with Citra (notes of orange juice, grapefruit zest, and bitter lemon peel). As the weeks go by, supporting hops will take a starring role. And you’ll be able to see which hop is dominant by checking the bottom of your can.

For those of you with tickets to Lupulin Ecstasy, taste the new 3-Way IPA on Saturday, May 25th at the historic Flavel Mansion & Grounds, surrounded by lupulin delights from every 3-Way IPA collaborator throughout the years. If you don’t have a ticket, unfortunately it is sold out. But 3-Way IPA will be on sale at Fort George starting Sunday, May 26th. And at the brewery, there are no limits on can sales.

Join all three collaborators for the first release parties in Seattle on Friday, May 31st at Chuck’s Hop Shop Central District, and in Portland at Ruse Brewing on Saturday, June 1st. Then look for 3-Way IPA cans & draft releasing at pubs & bottleshops near you, starting June 3rd. Fort George is distributed only in the Pacific Northwest.

3-WAY IPA CELEBRATIONS

Come hang out and enjoy a pint of 3-Way IPA with us. You’re guaranteed to find it on tap at these locations, on these days. Or, you can always search for Fort George beer at fortgeorgebrewery.com/beerfinder.
