The Burgundian’s Imperial Strength B-day Bash this Saturday

Some beer joints are just so comfortable that they seem immediately familiar. Case in point, the Burgundian. I find it hard to believe that it has only been two years since the Burgundian opened its doors in Seattle’s Tangletown neighborhood. It seems like it has been around forever. Perhaps that’s because of its relationship with two of Seattle’s other venerable beer spots: Brouwer’s Cafe and Bottleworks, which have been part of the local beer scene for much longer. Whatever the case, this Saturday, January 18, the Burgundian celebrates its second anniversary.

Burgundian invites you to join them for festival of super-strength beers. Dubbed an Imperial Festival, they will have 22 big beers on tap for you along with some food specials. The doors open at 10:00 a.m. and the party goes all day and into the night. See the Burgundian Facebook page for details
