Seattle Beer Week can overwhelm your palate. So many big beers. But this year Gordon Biersch wants to give your palate a break: LagerFest, on Wednesday, May 13 . Basically, it’s a tap takeover at Gordon Biersch. It’s hard to imagine, but they’re turning over all of their taps to other breweries’ beers. All lagers. Most, locally produced. The list of beers is below.
People often ask me what I think will be the next big thing? What will be the next IPA? As if I’d know. Lately my answer has been, “Lager.” I think that our collective beer palate has matured enough to appreciate the subtlety of well-crafted lagers. I’m probably wrong, but it’s a nice sentiment. I sure do appreciate a good lager and there typically are not enough of them around. But wait…
Among the tasty lagers you can expect to find the Gordon Biersch LagerFest on Wednesday, May 13:
Chuckanut Brewery Baltic Porter
Chuckanut Brewery Vienna Lager
Alpine Brewing Pilsner
Elysian Brewing, (TBA)
Silver City Brewery, Sieben Brau
Silver City Brewery, Ziggy Zoggy
E9 Brewery and Kevin Davey collaboration: Tac-City light
Maisel’s Chocolate Bock
