The weatherman says we’re in luck this weekend. So does the Washington Beer Events Calendar. Birthday parties, a brewers dinner, a BBQ party, live music, and furry faces. Get out there and do something. Celebrate summer while you still can.
Be safe out there. In other words, wear sunscreen.
Friday, August 13
6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. Porterhouse One Year Birthday – Porterhouse, Seattle. A party that will surely spill out of the bar and restaurant onto the patio. (see our earlier post about this event.) They’ll have beer specials, food specials, and door prizes. They’ll be pouring some special brews from Fremont Brewing and Georgetown Brewing. They’ll also tap one of the first kegs of Dottie’s Seattle Lager from Emerald City Beer Company. (MAP)
Saturday, August 14
1:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. Red Hot Anniversary Party – The Red Hot, Tacoma. The Red Hot in Tacoma will commemorate its third anniversary with a celebration that includes a lot of beer. (see our earlier post about this event.) They’re setting up a special beer garden out back and will have a total of 22 beers on tap. The lineup includes Firestone Walker Parabola Stout and Double Jack IPA, Port Townsend Green Tea Golden, Silver City Whoop Pass IIPA, Ommegang Zuur, Black Raven Wisdom Seeker, Walking Man Runaway IPA, among others. You get the point. (MAP)
2:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Porterhouse Brewfest – Porterhouse Pub, Mt. Vernon. This will be the 8th Annual Porterhouse Charity Brewfest to benefit the historic Lincoln Theater. (see our earlier post about this event.) The event features great craft beer and world-class music, mostly blues. They shut down the entire street in front of the Porterhouse and put on one helluva show. (MAP)
6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. BBQ Party at Fiddlers featuring Pike Brewing – Fiddler’s Inn, Seattle. It’s like a brewers night with food and live music. The BBQ will be smoking and the beer will be pouring. Representatives from Pike Brewing will be there to tell you about the beer and give away swag. (MAP)
6:30pm – 9:00 p.m. Brewers Dinner at Rock Bottom Bellevue – Rock Bottom Brewery, Bellevue. Join Brewmaster Brian Young for a four course dinner and beer pairing on the Rock Bottom’s patio. The cost is $35 per person. Reservations required – 425-462-9300. (MAP)
Sunday, August 15
1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Beer in the Garden at West Seattle Nursery. The Beveridge Place Pub invites you to join them at the West Seattle Nursery for some beer in the garden. They’ll be pouring from their mobile pub. All sales benefit Furry Faces Foundation, a local organization that helps those furry little critters we call pets. Beer has been donated by Big Al Brewing and Schooner Exact Brewing. Afterward, maybe slip down the street to the Beveridge Place Pub for a chaser. It’s only a few blocks south of the nursery. Or slide a few block north on California Ave to the Elliott Bay Brewery and Pub. (MAP)
