Seattle International Beer Festival: Another Suggested List

Let’s face it, if you are reading this then chances are you still haven’t committed yourself to spending your 10 tickets wisely.

Already there are some wonderful ideas out there from both Seattle Beer News and Washington Beer blog, but like all good things, you can’t have too much. Although we have already put together our beginning list we thought we would share some our thoughts. Note, in the interest of being fair we will be starting from the top and working our way down.

  • Walking Man Jaywalker Imperial Stout. With the current temperatures being what they are, this beer might warm you up a smidge. Note, this beer weighs in at 12.30% so it would be wise to have had a hearty breakfast and a lot of water prior to sipping this one.

  • Flyer’s Kentucky Uberwine. Flyer’s Restaurant and Brewery created this “house” beer for Uber Tavern in celebration of their fourth anniversary. Much like Walking Man this is another strong sipper and shouldn’t be consumed on an empty stomach.

  • Ninkasi Maiden the Shade. Although we haven’t had a chance to try this and don’t recall seeing it on draft anywhere, we are curious what a Strong Ale in the summer time might taste like.
  • Mikkeller Beer Geek Breafast Stout / Beer Geek Breakfast Stout with Bacon. For some of you this might be your first meal of the day, and hopefully you have a healthy chunk of brat resting in your gullet. As usual we are looking forward to another reminder of this tasty beer.

  • Nectar Ales Black Xantus. Last year, this beer was supposed to arrive on the shelves in the Northwest but instead we missed out. Don’t pass up a chance to try a taste of this from the bottle.

Well that’s all we are willing to share, but if you think that one is missing or you care to prove us wrong, you will find us at the festival on Saturday in the afternoon. Till then drink plenty of water, eat healthy, and take a bus or cab for safety’s sake.
