South Seattle Poker and Pints, February 20th

On Saturday, February 20th, join the fun and participate in a beer-fueled poker run in South Seattle. Consider this an event withing the larger Washington Beer Open House, which takes place the same day. Basically, to participate in Poker N Pints you visit five breweries in South Seattle and collect a card at each, building your poker hand. At the final brewery, you play your hand against the house. If you win, you get some swag.

Poker N Pints benefits Washington Wild Brewshed® Alliance, a local organization that helps people make the connection between protected water and superior downstream beer. The event is free, but players are asked to register because Washington Wild will be sending out the rules to participants the night before before the event.More information available in the press release below.

Poker N Pints with a Conservation Twist

Poker N Pints is back, but this time with a fun new twist.  This annual event conceived by Lisa from Tin Dog Brewing will this year be organized by and benefiting the Washington Wild Brewshed® Alliance.  The Brewshed® Alliance helps people make the connection between protected water and superior downstream beer.  Since it began in late 2012 the Brewshed® Alliance has grown to almost 40 brewery and beer community partners and raised over $50,000 total 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, which for this event are all located in South Seattle: Big Al Brewing, Tin Dog Brewing, Counterbalance Brewing Company, Machine House Brewery, and Flying Lion Brewery.  Players will visit each brewery to pick up a card to build their hand and at the final brewery they play the house to win a swag bag!  Each brewery will be open from 12 pm to 9 pm on Saturday, February 20th and donate $1 per pint to Washington Wild in honor of the Brewshed® Alliance.  That’s right, all five breweries will be making a donation for all pints purchased throughout the day! Several of the Brewshed® partners will have themes, games, or other surprises going on throughout the day.
