Introducing the Stein Society at Bell + Whete

Just about a year ago we visited a new beer-focused restaurant and bar in Belltown: Bell + Whete (pronounced bell and wheat). If you’re not yet familiar with Bell + Whete, which features over 60 local and international draft beer options, check out our original post.

Today we want to let you know that Bell + Whete is launching a beer club: The Stein Society. Instead of just offering its regulars a personalized mug and a modest discount, they’re treating this more like an actual club, creating a way for local beer fans, connoisseurs and novices to get together to talk beer, share a mug, learn more about local and international beers, try new varieties, discover old favorites and explore beer trends.

They’ll auction it off, with proceeds benefiting a cause that is near and dear to the Washington Beer Blog: KEXP 90.3 FM. Proceeds from the auction will be donated to KEXP. More specifically, the construction of the new KEXP facility at Seattle Center.
