Yesterday I posted a story about the new breweries you should expect to see at the fest. Today I share some of the more interesting and uncommon beers that I’ll be hunting at the Washington Brewers Festival this weekend. Likely there will be a lot of beers at the fest about which I am not yet aware, but given what I know so far, this is my kill list.
As I said about yesterday’s Beer Fest Strategy post, this is my personal list. If it serves a less selfish purpose, and is of some value to you, that’s okay too.

Kendall’s Kill List:
Aslan Brewing – Organic Ginger Rye, (FRI). Organic Head of Security Sour Brindle.
Bale Breaker Brewing – Raging Ditch Dry-Hopped Blonde Ale. Blondes may be more fun, but they can also be really boring, but when Bale Breaker adds hops to anything, magic happens.
Bellevue Brewing – Friday night casks: Cask of Pineapple Infused IPA and Cask of Mango IPA.
Black Raven Brewing – (FRI) Great Grandfather Raven Imperial Stout. Why? Uh, duh. Just, duh.
Boundary Bay Brewery – Steady as She Gose Wheat Sour.
Diamond Knot – Imperial Chocolate Vanilla Oatmeal Stout (nitro).
Dick’s Brewing – Raspberry Tripel-Belgian Style Tripel (Sat. & Sun.).
E9 Brewery – Wild Tacoma #2.
Elliott Bay Brewing – All four of the beers their bringing sound very interesting,
Elysian Brewing – Hot Tropic Pineapple Habanero Sour. I love spicy things and this does not sound like your typical Anheuser-Busch product.
Fremont Brewing – Show offs! They’re bringing so many different, interesting beers. Rotating all weekend.
Georgetown Brewing – Two new IPAs, Bodhizafa and Warchild. And they’re named after characters from Point Break, like Johnny Utah.
Iron Goat Brewing – Both of the Dry Fly barrel-aged beers. This brewery excels at brewing big ballsy beers.
Middleton Brewing – Peanutbutter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout and the Strawberry American Wheat. I might have to drink these at the same time and call it a sandwich.
Naked City Brewery – At least three of their beers sound really interesting, like the Brass Monkey Orange Peel Malt Liquor.
Postdoc Brewing – (6pm FRI & SAT) Hogus Maximus Barriclus Barrel Aged Triple IPA.
Odd Otter Brewing – Ottcho Borracho Lager with Cilantro and Lime. Coconut Chai Porter.
Rainy Daze Brewing – Mind Funk Oatmeal Pale Stout.
Schooner Exact Brewing – Whiskey Dick Cantwell Barrel-aged Pumpkin Beer. Amarillo Saison. The former is so out of season, the latter just sounds so yummy.
Scuttlebutt Brewing – Aye Caramba Garlic Chili Hefe. Loves me some spicy stuff.
Skookum Brewery – Any or all of their beers. Because Skookum is awesome and I never get their beers.
Strong Arm Brewing – Bravo Charlie Papa Whiskey Barrel Aged Coconut Porter.
Triplehorn Brewing – A rotating assortment of goodness. It’s the most massive list I’ve ever seen one brewery put together for a beer festival. (see our previous post)
Wander Brewing – Saturday beers: Raspberry Millie Raspberry Sour and Uno Bretto Brett Pale Ale
