Washington Cider Week is in full swing with events continuing all week at locations around Seattle and the rest of the state. Don’t miss out…here is a post from last week calling out a few events.
As always in Seattle, there are several other events worth your time this week. Here are just a few:
- The crew from Logsdon Farmhouse Ales will be visiting Brouwer’s Cafe tonight (9/10) and they are bringing some special kegs, including Seizoen Bretta, Oak Aged Bretta, Far West Vlaming, Aberrant and Peche ‘n Brett. This is one of the best breweries in the NW, hands down. Seizoen Bretta alone is always welcome in my glass.
- It’s time for Oktoberfest, and Gordon Biersch will be tapping their FestBier at the Seattle location today (9/10) at 5:30pm. Stop by to taste this “Oktoberfest-style lager” and sample some new Oktoberfest-themed menu items. Cheers to friend Kevin Davey, who has taken over the reigns as Headmaster Brewer at the Seattle location of Gordon Biersch. Formerly of both Chuckanut and Firestone Walker, Kevin is sure to keep churning out some great lagers that will make a stop by Pacific Place worth your time.
- Redhook Sausage Fest is happening this Saturday, 9/14 at the brewery in Woodinville. This annual end of summer “Backyard BBQ Bash” is a festival of beer, meat and music. They’ll be featuring some great local bands, including Beat Connection, who was one of my favorite bands at Bumbershoot this year. Doors open at 3pm, and tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
- Chicken Shit Bingo! That’s right, The Pine Box is hosting Chicken Shit Bingo this Saturday, 9/14, starting at Noon. They will feature some special beers from Firestone Walker, Ninkasi and Elysian, and there will also be live music from 2pm to 6pm.
- Brouwer’s Cafe is lucky enough to be one of 46 bars around the world that gets to take part in Cantillon Zwanze Day this Saturday, 9/14. More from Brouwer’s: We are getting Cantillon Gueuze, and St Guilloze and are trying to amass 15– 20 other sour beers for this great day. We may dig in to the cellar and bring out some very rare bottle pours and limited bottles might be available for purchase, for in house consumption only. We will not be selling tickets, we will be handing out numbers at the door based on your position in line. Holding one of these tickets will mean that you will be able to purchase a 6oz pour of Zwanze. The doors open at 11am, we will begin pouring Zwanze at 12, we will pour in ascending ticket order .
