Elysian Brewing
Seattle
1) Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale
There's a new beer in town--Superfuzz Blood Orange Pale--and he's sticking it to the Man. Superfuzz is a beer you can get behind, with Pale, Munich and Dextri-Pils malts and German Northern Brewer and Cascade hops to bitter and flavor. But it's Citra, Amarillo and blood orange peel and puree that'll really get you on your feet.  Never dance? We'll see about that.  5.4% ABV
2) Dayglow IPA
This is a beer with the insistent beat of hops, as driving and inevitable as a Full Moon party in Haad Rin.

2) Eddie IPL
Originally brewed as a last minute add to the brew schedule when some fresh Mosaic hops fell in our laps, we decided to give it another go, but without the fresh hops this time. Brewing the beer as a lager gives the beer a crisp character, brightening the passionfruit and stone fruit aromas from the Mosaic hops, but still delivering the citrus flavors and upfront bitterness of an IPA. 6.9% ABV / 60 IBU

Hale's Ales
Seattle
1) Àndale IPA
An IPA infused with chillis to spice up your summer.

Island Hoppin Brewery
Eastsound
1) K-Pod Kolsch
Named after our favorite local family of orca whales, this light, approachable beer is a regular guest at island weddings and beach outings. The gentle bitterness of East Kent Goldings hops play well with the round, bready character of the Pislner and Pale malt. Like whale watching, it’s a crowd pleaser. Light in body and alcohol, an ale that drinks like a lager. And for this event it will be poured through a Randall packed with strawberries! 4.5% ABV / 18 IBU
2) Dockside Black Lager
Very dark and dry- drinks like a light beer with a full dark roasty flavor and none of the sweetness. 5% ABV / 20 IBU

2) Strawberry Nom Nom
The strawberries are in your nose, but they don't kill your mouth. We use our Blonde Ale as a base, and we toss in some fresh strawberries as we brew. We then blend in a real strawberry extract, which allows us to walk that narrow path between just enough and too much. No greens or seeds here: this is simply happiness in your hand. 4.9% ABV

This otter's name is Ottcho, and he/she likes to party. Imagine being on a beach with an awesome cilantro-lime lager beer; that beer that you're thinking of is Ottcho Borracho.

Slaughter County Brewing
Port Orchard
1) Luna Negra, Blackberry Wit
Luna Negra, or "Black Moon," is a Belgian Style Witbier with a northwest twist. We've replaced the traditional orange and coriander flavors with fresh blackberries (whole berries in kettle and fermentor), fresh cracked black pepper, and a hint of star anise. The result is a refreshingly fruity ale with a peppery bite and just a touch of lingering blackberry licorice. 6% ABV
2) Rabbit Imperial IPA
Originally from a homebrew recipe gone horribly awesome! It started as a white IPA, a la Chainbreaker, but add buckets of honey, and a ton of extra hops (citra, of course), along with mandarine orange and corriander, and a high gravity yeast to finish it all off, and we end up with something far from a white IPA. Coming in at about 9% with over 100 IBU, the residual sweetness balances out the extreme citra hop load creating a wonderfully rich and refreshing IPA. Rabbit. Because hoppy. 9% ABV / 100 IBU
3) Bondsman's ESB
A straight up, traditional, open fermented English Style Strong Bitter. Brewed with floor malted maris otter malt and all english hops -- a true version of the style is such a treat. Malty, fruity, and hopped with a mouthwatering bitterness that keeps you coming back for another sip. A great quaffing beer for a night out -- wonderful on draft or cask! 5.8% ABV
4) Big Bottom Barrel Aged Sour Stout
Surprisingly refreshing, light bodied sour black ale. Based on our Irish Stout, after aging in a spent bourbon barrel, this beer comes on like a red wine and finishes like an espresso -- That might sound weird, but if you dig aged sours, you'll love this."

Sound Brewery
Poulsbo
1) Bombshell Belgian-Style Blonde Ale
Made with Belgian malts, Trappist yeast and a new German Hop, this authentic Belgian style "Blonde" ale bears a family resemblance to our Tripel Entendre, in a lighter, more refreshing ale.

2) Humulo Nimbus Double IPA
A towering thunderstorm of Northwest hops against a sky of clean, dry malt. Crisp yet eminently satisfying for the extreme hop lover, Humulo Nimbus has a balance that brings it all together into one seriously quaffable Double IPA. 8.5% ABV

An easy bitterness and flavor of grapefruit and citrus.  6.7% ABV / 60 IBU

Twelve Bar Brews
Woodinville
1) Burning Down the House Imperial India Red Ale
In keeping with our dry beers philosophy, our IIRA is a touch sweeter than the Wicked Riff IPA but it is very drinkable and has a more pronounced hop aroma.  Bittered with Galena, the bitterness comes on slowly, allowing time for the malt flavor to present itself.  Aroma hops include Cascade and Centennial for citrus, and Chinook for a pine woodsy aroma. 8.5% ABV / 100 IBU
A floral hop addition rounds out the aroma pleasantly.
2) Bourbon Supertonic India Black Ale
