This weekend is turning out to be a good one, at least if you like local craft beers. Go get em.
Fresh Hop Throwdown at The Noble Fir
Saturday, October 15th, 4 p.m. Fresh hop beers from 15 Washington and Oregon breweries, organized by our fellow local beer blogger, Geoff Kaiser. Cheers to that. You know that the Washington Beer Blog loves our fresh hop beers. We had a lot of the Washington beers on the Throwdown list when we were at Yakima Fresh Hop Festival a couple weekends ago, so we’re planning on stopping by The Fir to sample some of the Oregon beers like Double Mountain’s Killer Red and Hopworks Give Me Liberty.
Washington Beer Festival at Brouwer’s Cafe
Continuing this weekend. When Brouwer’s turns their 64 taphandles over to Washington beer it’s an impressive sight. They’ve brought in some beers and brewers that you don’t always see in Seattle, like Paradise Creek’s Hopocalypse CDA and Wingman Belgian Strong.
The Cask One Year Anniversary
Saturday, October 15th, 5:30 p.m. West Seattle has a couple great beer bars, but The Cask has found its niche as a beer (and wine) bar with a dark, music-filled, cool-vibe space where conversation rules. Shon and Dee are the Yin and Yang of bar owners – Shon is the low-key, music and beer guy, and Dee is the high-energy wine gal. Join them as The Cask celebrates their one year anniversary on Saturday night with free appetizers from 5:30 to 7:30. Live music by Joe Ross and the Birdwatchers starts at 8 p.m.
Beveridge Place Pub Hoptoberfest
Continues all weekend. Hop lovers take note – the Bev (Washington Beer Blog sponsor), will have a minimum of 12 IPAs on tap, and this is your chance to vote for next year’s house IPA, currently held by Boundary Bay IPA. Full story here.
