Naked City 9th Anniversary Celebration –
Saturday October 14th –

12pm – Second Saturday Cinema – free all ages matinee screening
6-9pm – 3 Play Ricochet – free concert with a great bluegrass band

Way back in October of 2008, just a few weeks before Barack Obama was first elected President of the United States, a little brewpub on Greenwood Avenue unlocked its doors for the first time. The Great Recession was in full swing, and the neighborhood had its share of vacant storefronts.
Over the last nine years, Naked City and Greenwood have grown hand in hand. With the addition of the Screening Room, and the Walrus beer garden, the Naked City now spans a hundred feet of sidewalk in the midst of a thriving district. Through gas explosions and arson fires, and all the good times in between, Naked City has been honored to be your public house.

On Saturday, October 14, the family-friendly brewpub will unlock its doors for an open-to-close celebration of nine magical years serving the great people of Greenwood, greater Seattle, and beyond.

Join us for the launch of Second Saturday Cinema at 12pm with a free, all ages matinee screening of a popular animated movie. Check out for details about the film. Seating will be first-come-first served. Bring the whole family for lunch, delicious beers and root beers, and a funny flick the whole family will love. Second Saturday Cinema will take place at 12pm on the second Saturday of every month featuring free all ages screenings of great family-friendly films.

The party continues at 6pm with a free bluegrass concert with 3 Play Ricochet. Stomp you feet as you sip on a rare Naked City beer. Head Brewer Don Webb is bringing out all the best beers tucked in the corners for a special occasion, including a 2015 barleywine. Stay tuned for the full beer list.
Chef Tessa is preparing some fun Troll-themed food specials for this special day of days. More details to come!

Think and Drink – Humanities Washington
Tuesday October 24th – 7PM

Our Think & Drink events are hosted conversations at pubs and tasting rooms on provocative topics and new ideas.

Experts, artists, and activists from a variety of disciplines participate in a moderated discussion, with a strong emphasis on audience participation. Past events tackled topics from consumerism to political polarization, geoengineering, race in the Pacific Northwest, and many more, and sparked lively conversation about morality, religion, history, and politics.

This month they address the Divided Library. Though seldom mentioned as a factor in our increasingly divided country, the stories we tell about one another matter. Stories are the glue that hold a culture together—but they can also act as a wedge to drive cultures apart. Perhaps the solution to our polarized moment resides in the stories we hear and tell about.

Naked Sessions –
Friday October 27th – 8PM

Friday, October 27, Naked City Brewery & Taphouse presents Jason Dodson & Faustine Hudson in the fifteenth installment of The Naked Sessions acoustic concert series. Each one features great artists braiding songs together with stories about the music.

Join us for an unforgettable evening when Jason Dodson & Faustine Hudson takes the stage to perform a stripped down set of folk, blues, and rock. Doors at 7pm, show starts at 8pm. Seated general admission; full table service. $10.

Naked City Brewery is a passionate supporter of arts and culture. Oftentimes its hand-crafted beers are inspired by a song, film, or person. Every beer tells a story, and each one ferments in its own time.

The Screening Room is Naked City’s seventy-person dining room event space, featuring a New American comfort food menu with vegetarian and gluten-free options alongside award-winning craft beers, wines, and ciders.

Faustine Hudson is the drummer, and Jason Dodson is the lead singer, songwriter, and acoustic guitarist of The Maldives, the country rock band from Seattle. Dodson is a secret cinephile and his love of film sets the stage for much of The Maldives’s music. Dodson’s storytelling reflects characters and places that blur the lines between fiction and nonfiction, the past and the present. His “intoxicating songwriting” (Willamette Weekly) has made The Maldives into a Northwest institution, with Dodson hailed as “one of Seattle’s great unheralded voices” (City Arts). The Maldives most recent album is 2017’s critically acclaimed Mad Lives.
