By now, you’re probably not surprised to hear that Naked City is actually brewing beer. Tonight, the Greenwood neighborhood will celebrate as Naked City Brewing debuts their current lineup of brews at a very special brewers night celebration. Over the past 13 months, Naked City Taphouse regularly hosted other brewers for such celebrations, but tonight it’s all about them. Congratulations to the two Dons and to everyone at Naked City Brewery and Taphouse.

Here is the official press release:


Seattle’s Newest Brewery Ready to Debut Beers

SEATTLE, Wash. (Dec. 08 2009)  – After 13 months of hard labor, Naked City Taphouse finally gives birth to a beautiful baby brewery.  Naked City will be hosting a release party to celebrate on Tuesday, December 8 at 4:00pm.  Co-owners Don Webb and Donald Averill have been busy brewing and have four beers ready to share including Hoptari 644, Bing, and The Big Lebrewski which were all well received at recent local beer festivals.  Yankee Drifter will be on draft for the first time at the event.

Naked City was fueled from a mutual love of beer by the owners who both have a long history of brewing and appreciating their passion, beer.  Don and Donald can’t imagine a better job than serving beer, talking about beer, and tasting beer day after day.  They are very grateful to the community for their overwhelming support through the process of building the new establishment and allowing them to follow their dreams.  Naked City offers a setting where the experienced beer enthusiast as well as craft beer novice can relax and enjoy a mutual love in great beer.

Yankee Drifter: A light ale brewed with pilsner and honey malts and German Tettnanger hops. A refreshing change of pace for this time of year!

Hoptari 664: A fresh-hop harvest ale brewed with Pale, Rye, Wheat and Light Munich malts, flaked oats and Amarillo bittering hops.  50lbs of experimental wet hops were added to the hop back. Thanks to Chris Miller from Snipes for sharing the fresh hops straight from Yakima!

The Big Lebrewski: A White Russian Imperial Stout aged on Kahlua-soaked oak. This beer is already being well-received at festivals.  As it continues to age, it is getting better and better and better!

Bing: An English Style Old Ale made with Lyle’s Black Treacle Syrup and then “dry-hopped” with Washington cherries, cinnamon, star anise and cloves. Definitely enough to keep you toasty warm during the cold days of December!

COMING SOON… Hoptrocity: An Imperial Rye IPA brewed with Pale, Rye, Munich, Wheat, Crystal malts and Black Barley and Cascade, Centennial and Amarillo Hops.
