Just a few bits and pieces before we kick off the weekend. Go Seahawks!
– The Burgundian is celebrating its first anniversary this Saturday with their first annual Imperial Fest. 20+ special, strong beers on tap is a great way to start off the second round of playoff football. The full list can be seen below.
– Haven’t been to visit the new Copper Coin in West Seattle yet? Just yesterday they tapped the first keg of Odin Brewing’s first ever IPA, Sigrun IPA. You like IPAs, don’t you? Sounds like a good time to stop in and visit.
– Speaking of IPAs…The Noble Fir will tap their last keg of Pliny the Elder on 1/22. Because they are awesome people, they will be donating a $1 of every pour to the King County Parks department. Support your local parks while drinking great beer.
– Another new beer spot (my new neighborhood bar!) has now joined the ranks of Twitter. Follow Tippe & Drague to keep up with what is going on. Should be a great place to keep up with what is on draft, special brewers nights, and more.
