Two events at Schooner Exact Brewing promise to get you in a festive mood. One is just before Christmas, the other just after. You’re invited to join Schooner Exact for a Holiday Brewers Dinner on Wednesday, December 23 and/or a Barrel-Aged Bash on Saturday, December 26.
If you’ve yet to experience a beer dinner at the Schooner Exact brewery, you’re missing out. Chef Joshua Beckham promises to pull out all the stops for this special event. With hor d’oeuvres to start, and then six more courses, all paired with delicious beers—including some barrel-aged and sour beers—you’ll leave satisfied and stuffed, ready to deal with the Christmas frenzy. Menu is below
Tickets for the Holiday Brewers Dinner are $55 plus tax (gratuity included). This event is sure to sell out, so make your reservations now. Call (206) 432-9734 or stop by the brewery.
Barrel-Aged Bash – Saturday, December 26th
If you like your beers big, bold and bourbon-y, then you should clear your calendar for the barrel-aged tap takeover at Schooner Exact on December 26th. They’ll pour Hoppy the Woodsman ’14 and ’15, Barrel-Aged Imperial Porter ’14 and ’15, Whiskey Dick Imperial Pumpkin Ale, and Boxcar Hopper. These are small-batch beers and are not usually found on tap at the same time. Pick your favorite and dive in, or try a flight of all six.
