With so many great events there is no way I can highlight them all. But, I’ll be posting every day during Seattle Beer Week and picking out two or three exciting events for the current day, as well as a couple for the following day.
Picks for Tuesday, May 24
Oak Aged La Trappe Night at Lot No. 3 (Bellevue) – This is a special opportunity to taste some world-class beer never released here in the US.
Join us at our LOT No. 3 in Bellevue at 6:30pm on Tuesday, May 24th as we sample 6 unique, oak aged releases from “La Trappe”, Brewery de Koningshoeven. Housed at the B.V.M. Koningshoeven Abbey since 1884, LaTrappe is one of the seven remaining Trappist breweries in the world.
To this point, one batch has been released in the US with a second release occurring soon. 4 of these 6 beers have never been released to the US market and never will. Seating is extremely limited for this engagement so don’t miss out on this rare treat!
6:30pm ~ Reception

A Look Ahead: Wednesday, May 25
Tomme Arthur at The Noble Fir – Come down to Ballard to drink beer with one of America’s top brewers, Tomme Arthur of Lost Abby/Port Brewing, to enjoy some of his award winning beers. Every pint sold helps to plant trees, so you not only are getting to drink great beers, but you are helping out the planet.
Stone Brewing Company at Bambino’s – While Bambino’s usually focuses on wood-fired pizza paired with good beer, this night they’ll be breaking out some suckling pig to pair with brews from Stone. Join Stone Brewing Co Head Brewer Mitch Steele for a night of some of Stone’s award winning beers paired with a suckling pig and braised rabbit buffet. Featured beers:
Suckling pig with roasted potatoes and corn, Braised rabbit, Vanilla gelato on Stone Smoked Porter float.
$10 will include the buffet and 5oz pours!
