A friendly reminder to visit the Fremont neighborhood (in Seattle) and Brouwer’s Café (400 Nortth 35th Street). Starting at 6pm Brouwer’s Café is hosting Speakeasy Ales & Lagers. Unlike other Speakeasy events this one is special.
Last year, after re-evaluating their commitments to Washington, the brewery approached Brouwer’s Café to re-release their beers in the state. As part of that celebration the brewery worked with Operations Manager Matt Bonney to produce a blended beer, Big Matty.
Blended with 3/4 Big Daddy India Pale Ale and 1/4 Triple India Pale Ale, the beer was a hit at that year’s event. Which is why it’s important to stop by Brouwer’s Friday (9/20) for Speakeasy’s brewers night and the ‘firkin’ tapping of Big Matty.
As with any brewery night there will be staff from the brewery to answer questions.
Speakeasy has been making great craft beer in San Francisco since first opening in 1997. Our flagships are Big Daddy IPA, Prohibition Ale, and the seasonal releases Scarlett Red Rye and Tallulah Extra Pale Ale.
With a love for the sinister and the underground, Speakeasy operates out of a corner of this city once known as Butchertown. Come visit the tap room to try exclusive releases fresh from the source, Tuesday-Sunday.

Paul Gibson originally hails from Carlsbad, New Mexico, so it’s no wonder he prefers the Northwest’s cooler temperatures and its vast selection of hoppy delicious beers. As a kid, he first started taking photos with an Instamatic of his friends on their BMX bikes. Now he takes photos of beer, breweries and on occasion street photography, events and concerts—minus the Instamatic. You can see more of his photos on Flickr (www.flickr.com/photos/p_d_gibson ).
