Looking for a way to ring in the New Year with an icy-cold beer in hand? Want to spend the evening with the people you love and other people who love beer? We’ve got a few suggestions.
If there’s an event we don’t know about, please email us and let us know the details (like the Bev and Uber did) and we’ll be happy to spread the word.
Seattle Area – Beveridge Place Pub– Join the folks at the Bev for NYE. Wear goofy hats, play with cheesy noise-makers, and have a midnight toast with bottles of Deus, Malheur Brut, Parxet 21, Black Bubbles, or another tasty beverage. To further encourage your good times at the Bev, They’ll be tapping two special kegs. At 6:00PM they tap a PAULANER OKTOBERFEST CASK! They saved this one in the back of the cooler just for New Years Eve. Traditional German beer served the traditional way: on the bartop! At 10:00PM they’ll tap a keg of UERIGE STICKE ALT on DRAFT! This rare treat from Dusseldorf is brewed just twice a year, and kegs of it get to Seattle even less often than that. “Alt” means “old” in German. Aus mit dem alten, in mit dem neuen! (out with the old, in with the new.)
Seattle Area – Join Uber Tavern to ring in 2009. Uber will break out some of their rarest specialty beers for the occasion and feature them at special prices exclusively for New Year’s Eve. The list of special beers is too long for us to list here so you should visit their Web site.
They’ll also be offering a lot of complimentary snacks such as hot Swedish meatballs in smoky barbecue sauce, artisanal cheeses, gourmet sausages, and various sweets will also featured. Rib stickin and on the house!
Below, you’ll find some other options. These places are all, at least, having live music to accompany their fine beer and help rock in the new year. Contact them directly to find out if they’ve got any other NYE shenanigans up their sleeves.
