July 7th, 2011 · No Comments · Events

Cheers to West Seattle’s Beer Junction for their first year of business! Join them the rest of this week for three special tastings.

Hard to believe, but we just passed the one year mark on Sunday July 3rd! Thanks to all of you for supporting us this past year.

In celebration, we’ll be having three tasting events this week!

Thursday (5-8PM): We’ll be sampling a selection of five of our best selling beers of all time. The tasting lineup: Maui Coconut Porter, Oscar Blues Dales Pale Ale, Duchesse De Bourgogne Flemish red ale, Firestone Walker Double Jack Double IPA, and for desert Southern Tier’s Choklat Imperial Stout paired with vanilla ice cream from Husky Deli!

Friday (5-7PM): 21st Amendment returns! We’ll be sampling their new Hop Crisis Imperial IPA (which is almost too easy to drink at 9.7% ABV), Brew Free or Die IPA, Back in Black IPA, Watermelon Wheat, and another one of our best selling beers, the Belgian-style Monk’s Blood!

Saturday (5-7PM): Ninkasi Brewing will be here with all their new seasonals! We’ll be tasting our #4 selling beer of all-time (in $$$┬ásales), Maiden The Shade IPA! In addition we’ll be trying the new Nuptiale Cream Ale, Summer Radiant Pale Ale, Total Domination IPA, and Oatis Oatmeal Stout!

Each event is $4.

Friday is also the start of the West Seattle Summer Fest Street Fair!

They have also put together a couple lists of their top 10 best sellers in the first year by volume and $:
