A Week of Winter Fun, Part Two - Barrel of Fun

Seattle, WA - Year #3 is upon the hapless city of Seattle and with it comes the prospect of post-Thursday hangovers, nausea, and of course desire for more oak-soaked beers next year. Seven years and some 13 or so festivals later, Brouwer's Cafe is alive again with the waft of oaked, 'bourbony', beers. Much like its other well known festivals (Hard Liver and Hopfest) this year is sure to be a standing room only event.
