Scuttle Butt Brewing's New Pub

IPA, Scuttlebutt, Leavenworth and more: happening this spring weekend

Looking for something to do this weekend? Whether you want to hang out around the Seattle area or head over the mountains, we have a few different ideas.

IPAs Abound

IPApril continues at the Beveridge Place Pub. After a brief diversion (last night’s anniversary celebration with Georgetown Brewing), IPApril resumes in all of it’s hopilicious glory. You’ll find no less than 12 rotating IPA taps down at the Beveridge Place. Contact the pub to find out exactly what’s pouring or just roll the dice and take your chances.

The 9th Annual IPA Festival at Cooper’s Alehouse moves into its second full week. Sampler trays available to maximize your tasting adventure. A rotating selection of IPAs, including some rare treats. Check with the pub to see what is going on tap and when.

Spring Black Out

Are the IPAs just a bit too whimpy for you? Then head to Fiddler’s Inn for the Spring Black Out Festival of Dark Beers. This dark-leaning tap selection is a celebration of big beer: cellared and aged to perfection. Pub master Bob has been carefully hording away some deliciously dark treats and now he brings them out into the light of day. The list includes impressive beers like Deschutes Abyss, Southern Tier Mokah, Full Sail Black Gold, and many more. Tapping on the 14th, pouring until their gone.


New Digs

Scuttlebutt Brewing‘s brand new pub just opened a couple of hours ago – in time for Friday lunch. Perhaps you should consider at trip to Everett to check out the new digs. The new pub is spacious compared to the old pub. It offers more than double the seating capacity. The new locations is just a few blocks from the old pub in the Port of Everett’s new Waterfront Center at 1205 Craftsman Way. Back in September we told you about the plan to move to a new location. Click here to read that story.

Kim is there as I type this and she sent some pictures. She’s talking to Matt Stromberg (Head Brewer), Phil Bannan Sr. and others. Basically, chatting it up with three generations of the Bannan family—from Phil Sr. down to eleven-year-old Willie. Here are her photos of the new pub.

Leavenworth Ale Festival

Over in the Bavarian theme park that we like to call Leavenworth, where German-style lagers are most frequently poured, you’ll find an Ale Festival this Saturday, April 16th. The event features ales from 20 different breweries. That’s where you can find the Washington Beer Blog this weekend. The secret word is lederhosen. If you see us, tell us the secret word and we will reward you with the opportunity to buy us a beer. Details on the event website.
