Seattle-based Beer Church has been organizing fundraisers for the past 11 years — making the world a better place one beer at a time. On November 21st, 2009, Beer Church will host the 11th Annual Turkey Bowl, a bowling party, food drive and fundraiser for the West Seattle Food Bank. The event, held at West Seattle Bowl, is open to the beer loving public and you do not need to have any bowling skills whatsoever to come have fun and win prizes. Get complete details from the Beer Church Web site.
Within the larger event, a handful of local breweries will be battling it out in the Battle of the Brewers. Representatives from Big Al Brewing, Georgetown Brewing, Snoqualmie Falls Brewing, Pike Brewing, and Elliott Bay Brewing will compete for the coveted Battle of the Brewers Trophy. Georgetown is the current champ, having squeaked out a narrow victory over Big Al and Elliott Bay at last year’s Turkey Bowl.
As the breweries compete in the Battle of the Brewers, local watering holes will compete in the Turkey Bowl Bar Brawl. So far, West Seattle’s Beveridge Place Pub and West 5 have confirmed. Others are expected to commit soon.
Everyone is welcome at this event. Individuals as well as teams are encouraged. For more details and to buy tickets, go to the Beer Church Turkey Bowl page.
Last year’s Turkey Bowl saw 150 bowlers pack the bowling alley. A total of $3,000 and 1,500 lbs. of food was the result. The event is expected to sell out again this year, so do not delay. Make your plans and purchase tickets.
