(WA) Phinney Neighborhood Association presents The Summer Beer Roundup, July 10th at 4 – 7:30 PM


Seattle, WA – Well you asked for it Seattle, weeks spent deciding between hoody or no hoody are behind you.

Welcome to Summer, extreme Northwest Edition. With the prospects of this week featuring over 80+ degrees (even 90’s), now might be a good time to consider cracking open a cold one while standing out in public. No we aren’t advocating you leave your house and start walking the sidewalks with a stein in your hand, but you can come close on July 10th.

Located in the Phinney Ridge neighborhood, the Phinney Neighborhood Association has for several years, hosted beer festivals sometimes indoors and sometimes out. Chances are you have heard of the Winter Beer Festival, but the Summer Edition seems to suffer a naming issue.

About the Phinney Neighborhood Association

The Phinney Neighborhood Association is a non-profit community organization founded in 1980 by Phinney neighbors to build community. The PNA provides and promotes programs, services and activities aimed at encouraging connections between neighbors and fostering civic involvement in our diverse community.
Headquartered in a restored elementary school building, the PNA has developed an active community center that not only serves as a focus of Seattle's Phinney/Greenwood neighborhood, but offers a wide variety of programs and activities open to anyone in the Puget Sound region.

Currently, there will be over 19 breweries and even cider for those less inclined to the vine.

The Beers, with thanks to the Organizers of the PNA Summer Roundup.

  • Three Skulls Orange Wit
    ”comes at you with a nose of citrus infused spicy fresh bread. A cloudy orange-gold hue supports a fluffy white head that sticks around all night. Its flavor is dominated by a huge blend of different orange zests and hand-crushed whole coriander. A great summer brew that is surprisingly easy to drink for all its flavor.”-source, Three Skulls & Baron Brewing

Big Al

  • Passive Aggressive Ale
    ”is a “Hoppy American Wheat Ale,” a light session beer that is sneaky in bringing you over to the hoppy side with a boatload of Amarillo and Sorachi Ace hops. There were 5 hop additions total.

The chocolate coffee notes carry through to the finish with a medium bitterness.” –source, Odin Brewing


  • Pike Dry Wit
    ”Is a seasonal Belgian-style white ale, turbid and spun-gold with excellent head retention. It is brewed with a top-fermenting Belgian yeast, hopped with Yakima valley perle, nugget and liberty hops, and flavored with Curacao, orange peel, chamomile, lavender, and coriander seeds.
