This Weekend at Brouwer’s Cafe – Hopfest & the Return of Shelton Brothers

This upcoming weekend, Brouwer’s Café celebrates all things hoppy. But that aint all.

Brouwer’s Hopfest gets started on Thursday, September 26 and runs through the weekend. Below is a list of just some of the hop-forward creations you can look forward to finding on tap. Fresh hop, IPA, Imperial IPA and more. As long as it’s hoppy.

Right smack in the middle of Hopfest, Brouwer’s celebrates the return of Shelton Brothers to the Seattle beer scene. Who are the Shelton Brothers? More correctly, what is Shelton Brothers? The very short answer, Shelton Brothers is a company that specializes in importing some of Europe’s most outstanding beers. The good stuff like Mikkeller, Cantillon, and Nøgne Ø. Below we share a list of the special treats from Shelton Brothers that Brouwer’s will tap Saturday at 11:00 a.m. I’d expect a line outside the door when they open.
