Upcoming big beer events at Watershed Pub and Kitchen

Updated 2/26/15

The Watershed Pub and Kitchen opened near Northgate Mall almost a year ago. With the big day approaching, the pub planned some special events, including an Imperial Stout Fest, a Barleywine Fest, and an anniversary celebration.

Ben Curran, owner/operator at Watershed, says, “While we have been hosting some cool events—beer releases, live music, beer and cider pairing dinners and our Convergence Series of special brewery nights—it’s finally time to crank it up a few notches for our craft beer loving community.”

9th Annual Strongman Barleywine Festival – Saturday 3/7: “A true labor of love, Strongman is the brainchild of our good friend and local beer cognoscente Joel Klemenhagen,” says Curran. “From its humble beginnings as a small gathering of friends it grew to multi-course dinner/house party tastings, then to two fantastic years at Epic Ales’ Gastropod and now we are honored to be hosting this year’s event, with a new twist – an open invitation to beer and food aficionados.”

“Aside from the private tasting, several specially curated barleywines will be available on tap along with some Chef’s specials designed to pair with these rare and robust brews.”
