Stout Fest, Sour Fest and other upcoming events at Brouwer’s Cafe


As we slip into Seattle Beer Week, so many great events to tempt you! Get out there and do something! Brouwer’s Cafe has some great stuff happening during beer week: Back in Black Stout Fest, Sour Fest, and a special brewers night event with some old friends. Here’s the deal with all three events, straight from Brouwer’s.

Stout Fest— Friday, May 11th -13th –All Day

Are you already tired of the oppressive Seattle Spring, with all its sunshine and pollen and warmth? Do you pine for the long, rainy nights of the Pacific Northwest? Do you just want an excuse to drink a bunch of dark beers and eat Stoofvlees on a sunny* day?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, have we got an event for you!  Join us once again on May 11th-13th for Back in Black Stout Fest! We’ll have the usual fare of 40+ stouts to warm the soul during this trying time of the year.  Come on out for some of the biggest of the big, the blackest of the black, and that baddest of the bad-ass stouts that we can assemble!

*Brouwer’s Café does not have any control of the weather and therefore cannot guarantee a sunny day.

Burial Night—Tuesday, May 15th 3pm

Way on the other side of the country, there is a cool little burg that happens to be one of the best places to visit for craft beer lovers. In that town, Asheville, North Carolina, lies one of our favorite craft breweries, Burial Brewing Co. Putting two and two together and after a painstaking negotiation process (we asked, and they were nice enough to oblige us), we bring to you, A Night with Burial. We’ll have 6-8 unique selections showcasing the great beers from down the hollar.

Draft list to come

Sour Fest, Thursday, May 17th – 20th

After you’ve gotten your fill of big, gnarly stouts, it’s time for a palette cleanser or two. Once again, Brouwer’s Café is pleased to present Sour Fest. It’s our favorite event of the year and one we love to bring to the Seattle beer community. As is tradition, we’ll have 55 sour beers on draft, enough to quench the thirst of any who venture to sunny Fremont on May 17th. We’ll be tapping world-class beers from around the globe covering the entire gamut of sour varieties. From lightly tart to enamel ripping, you’ll find it all at Brouwer’s!
