It ALL happens this weekend: everything at the same time

Every now and again a weekend comes a long that is just too packed with fun to be real. It sometimes seems that everything happens at the same time. For example, consider this Saturday, April 28th (and this weekend, for that matter).

Of course the biggest event is the Washington Cask Beer Festival, which takes place at Seattle Center on Saturday. The event features more than 100 cask-conditioned beers in one place, all produced by Washington breweries. See our previous post for more information. Tickets are sold out for the first session (noon – 4:00), but some tickets still remain for the second session (6:00 – 10:00).

Airways Brewing in Kent celebrates its 5th Anniversary on Saturday with a party at the brewery’s taproom. Along with other celebratory activities, they’ll tap into the 5th Anniversary beer – a Bohemian-style Pilsner featuring Mosaic hops. The fun gets started at 2:00. See our previous post for details.

As you can imagine, they’ve got a lot of special beer lined up for the event, including two beers brewed especially for the occasion: one from Reuben’s Brews and the other from New Belgium Brewing. See our previous post or the official website.

At Foggy Noggin Brewing, the 5th Anniversary celebration continues this Saturday with the release of Batch 1,000 – a Russian Imperial Stout brewed with Rye Malt, Oats and Dominican Republic Cocoa Nibs. Check out the event website for more info.

On Saturday, Populuxe Brewing celebrates its 2nd Anniversary with a party at the brewery in Ballard. For more information, see our previous post.

Watershed Pub and Kitchen celebrates its first anniversary this weekend, featuring a 1st anniversary beer from Hale’s Ales, live staff jam session and other live music, and more. See the Facebook page for more info.

Add to that the big Taste Washington event (the state’s premier wine and food event) at the Century Link Field Event Center, some lane closures on I-90 and a viaduct closure. It all adds up to a thrill-filled weekend around Seattle.

No doubt, I’m missing something. Leave comments.




  1. Don’t forget about the Emerald City Comicon! It’s Friday-Sunday and will be bringing around 80k attendees to the Washington State Convention Center. The only sad thing, is the beer garden isn’t provided by a Washington brewery 🙁 http://emeraldcitycomicon.com/

  2. Also, Cone & Steiner in Capitol Hill has 100% of their taps dedicated to Washington State Beers, and is offering 10% off of growler refills for mentioning their Facebook post.
