Here is some information about beer events happening this weekend around the Seattle area. Put on your party hat: American Brewing and Elliott Bay Brewing are celebrating birthdays. Also, pull up your socks: there are two Barleywine festivals happening this weekend. Details below.
Barleywine Bacchanal Continues at the Bev
The Beveridge Place Pub (blog sponsor) is deep into the cellar by this time. That means plenty of great Barleywine awaits you at the Barleywine Bacchanal. The event started last Saturday and runs through this Saturday (March 3rd). You will find an outrageous assortment of the most bodacious brews: 24 taps dedicated to Barleywine.
American Brewing Anniversary Party
Join American Brewing at its Edmonds brewery this Saturday, March 3, for an anniversary celebration. The fun gets started at 1:00 p.m. and continues on into the night until 11:00 p.m. Live music will be provided by Steve Stefanowicz from 2:00 – 5:00 and Third Train Running from 7:00 – 10:00.
Bring some canned food; the event is a fundraiser and food drive for the local food bank. For every item you donate you will be given a raffle ticket. More tickets, more chances to win. They’ll be giving away American Brewing swag. We also hear they will be introducing some cool new swag at the event.
Elliott Bay Brewing, Anniversary Party in Burien
The Elliott Bay Brewing pub in Burien celebrates its 5th birthday this Saturday, March 3. Festivities include face painting from 5:00 – 7:00 and live music from Tubaluba from 6:00 – 10:00. Also, to help mark the occasion, the brewery has created a special beer.
Hard Liver Festival
At Brouwer’s Cafe, they don’t take beer lightly. Especially during Hard Liver Festival, the annual celebration of Barleywine. The beers go on tap when the doors open on Saturday and pour until they’re gone. Likely, a line will form outside the door a couple hours before opening time. Expect the Angel’s Share from Lost Abbey Brewing, along with some of the other premium selections, to disappear quickly.
