Poker n’ Pints returns to South Seattle – drink beer, protect wilderness


Poker N’ Pints is great way to get out of the house on a Saturday, February 18th to visit some breweries and bring home some swag. It’s simple. It’s a brewery poker run. There are five participating breweries at which you can collect cards and build your hand. Visit at least three to build your hand and play it against the house for your chance to win. Visit all five to increase your odds. That’s the quick description but the press release below offers more details.

The five breweries involved are Tin Dog Brewing, Counterbalance Brewing, Lowercase Brewing, Machine House Brewing, and Flying Lion Brewing.

The event benefits Brewshed® Alliance, a local organization that works with Washington breweries to protect the state’s waterways and wilderness areas.

Poker N’ Pints is back – Play Poker, Drink Pints, Protect a Wild Washington

South Seattle Poker N Pints is back, with great odds for you and high stakes for our wilderness. This popular annual event, conceived by Lisa from Tin Dog Brewing, for the second year will be organized by and benefit the Washington Wild Brewshed® Alliance. The Brewshed® Alliance has allowed WA breweries to safeguard the protection of our state’s waterways and wilderness areas. This has let their patrons come away with a better understanding of the connection between protected water and superior downstream beer.  Since it began in late 2012, the Brewshed® Alliance has grown to over 45 brewery and beer community partners and raised over $70,000 for conservation throughout Washington State.

So what is Poker N’ Pints?  Poker N’ Pints is a poker-themed, self-guided crawl through five participating breweries, all of which are located in South Seattle: Counterbalance Brewing Company, Flying Lion Brewery, Lowercase Brewing, Machine House Brewery, and Tin Dog Brewing. Players will visit participating breweries throughout the day (in any order) to pick up cards to build their hand and, at their final brewery, play the house to win a swag bag! Each brewery will give players two cards, so players can choose to play the house at their third brewery, or better their chances to win by visiting all five. All five breweries will be open from 12 pm to 9 pm on Saturday, February 18th and will donate $1 per pint to Washington Wild in honor of the Washington Wild Brewshed® Alliance.  That’s right, all five breweries will be making a donation for all pints purchased throughout the day so come out play poker, drink prints, and protect a wild Washington.

The event is free, but players are asked to register as Washington Wild will be sending out rules of play to those registered the night before and wants to ensure enough swag for all

You can play after accumulating as little as six cards, but your chances are optimized if you get to pick your hand from 10 cards.
