Kevin Davey, Gordon Biersch, & Brewer’s Select Series Beers

This is a good time to share some news that we learned about a while ago but never got around to mentioning. Kevin Davey, who previously brewed with Will Kemper at Chuckanut Brewery in Bellingham, and then at Firestone Walker Brewing in California, is now back in Washington working as the head brewer at Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant in Seattle.

We mention this now because we just learned that Gordon Biersch will introduce a Brewers Select series of beers. Not just here in Seattle, but at other Gordon Biersch locations as well, the brewer gets to select his own recipe and flex some creative muscle. Special menu items are offered as part of the limited beer release. Kevin Davey has brewed up a Mosaic Pilsner. Presumably, the beer is a Pilsner brewed using Mosaic hops—an old world beer brewed with new world hops. The beer will be released at a tapping party on March 5th at the Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant in Seattle. It will then be available for the rest of the month.

Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant has more than 30 locations across the nation. The Seattle locations is downtown at Pacific Place, 600 Pine Street.

Here is the press release from Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant:

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (February 24, 2014) – Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant welcomes spring with the tapping of Brewer’s Select and a limited-time menu featuring three new entrées.
