There are few traditions that so many different cultures around the world share. I am talking about the time-honored tradition of grilling meat and drinking beer. Heaven knows how many thousands of years ago the first of our human ancestors put a piece of meat on a fire and then stood there tranquilly watching it cook, a grain-based libation in hand.
On August 18th the Washington Beer Commission presents the first-ever Washington Beer BBQ, a beer and food festival in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood. The event takes place at the South Lake Union Discovery Center Lawn, the same place that previously hosted the Washington Collaboration Beer Fest. This event, essentially, replaces that one. The location is immensely easy to reach via public transportation. There are no shortage of bus routes that stop nearby.
The event features a lovely selection of Washington-brewed beers from over 30 breweries paired with barbecued fare from a selection of the area’s best BBQ food trucks and purveyors of grilled meat.
We’ll have more information in the near future about the exact beer selection, but in the meantime here’s the event info including the list of participating breweries.
