Here is another stellar event this weekend that I forgot to mention earlier. Super Deli Mart, the West Seattle convenience store turned beer spot, will be holding a “Firestone Walker Brewing Tasting Extravaganza” this Sunday starting at 1pm. They will be featuring some of the beers that make up the blend for the very special 16th Anniversary Ale, as well as a few other gems we don’t typically see around these parts.
Tickets are $30/EA and include eight 2-3oz tastes of barrel-aged ales, 2 glasses of Firestone Walker reserve ales, food, and the chance to win tons of prizes. You can get tickets on their website in advance, and they will be available at the event as well.
Here is the beer list:
