So long and thanks for all the fish! There are a lot of things I enjoyed about my life here in Seattle. For one, I enjoyed all the beer. For another, I enjoyed listening to DJ Riz. How fortunate that I’ll have the opportunity to enjoy them both one last time, at the same time, next week when Elysian Brewing hosts a party to commemorate the end of the world. Groovy tunes and cool brews; I cannot think of a better way to kick off the Ascension.
The party is on Thursday, December 20 at Elysian Fields, with Armageddon to follow shortly thereafter.
By now everyone has heard that according to the Mayan calendar the world will unceremoniously come to an end on December 21st. It was just about exactly one year ago that we first told you about Elysian Brewing’s plans to celebrate the end of the world. (Read it.) All year long Elysian Brewing has released a new beer each month as part of its 12 Beers of the Apocalypse series. The 12 Beers of the Apocalypse feature label art by renowned comic artist Charles Burns. Very cool. Especially for fans of apocalyptic comics. The brewery hosted parties each month to commemorate the release of each beer and also to help get people prepared for the inevitable End of Days.
Next Thursday the whole thing comes to an end. Figuratively, if not literally. A big party at Elysian Fields marks the release of the last of the 12 Beers of the Apocalypse. All 12 beers will be available on tap. Details below.
If they’re wrong, expect shopping malls and department stores to be crowded on December 22nd with frantic Mayans doing last minute Christmas shopping.
