If there is one thing that Seattle is known for it's seafood. Ask anyone that has been to Seattle or lived around the area and they will tell you the best place to enjoy seafood is Ivar's Acres of Clams.
History of Ivar's Acres of Clams
Ivar’s Original Acres of Clams has been a tradition since 1938. Seattle’s most historic full service seafood restaurant is poised on Seattle’s romantic colorful waterfront at Pier 54. This attractive yet informal restaurant has a wharf-like feel which showcases stellar waterfront views of Washington State ferries, Fire Station #3’s waterside operations and Puget Sound.
Starting at 6pm, on Thursda December 5th, the chefs of Ivar's Acres of Clams and brewers of the Northwest collaborate to educate your palate on pairing beer with seafood. Designed as a sort of beer ‘mixer’, the event allows you to ask questions of some of the most notable breweries in the area.
