Following are a few things I’ve procrastinated to post about this week. I’ve been kind of busy, you know? Keep reading to find out more about Stoup Brewing opening in Ballard, Two Beers Brewing celebrating an anniversary and some info about the upcoming PNA Winter Beer Taste.
- The amazing brewery growth in Ballard continues, with Stoup Brewing becoming the most recent member of the neighborhood to open their doors. Stoup is located in a large space at 1108 NW 52nd St, not far at all from both Reuben’s Brews and Populuxe Brewing. They opened their doors to the public just this Wednesday, and from now on they will be open from 4-8pm on Wed & Thu, 4-9pm on Fri, 12-9pm on Sat and 12-8pm on Sun. I haven’t had a chance to stop by, yet, but I plan to this weekend. I’ve heard good things about the beers so far, which have included a Robust Porter, IPA and Session IPA.
- It seems like there is an abundance of anniversary celebrations this time of year, and Two Beers Brewing is getting in on the fun. They’ll be celebrating their sixth anniversary on Saturday, November 2 from 2pm to 7pm at the brewery. “To mark the occasion, Two Beers Brewing will be hosting its biggest celebration yet with the unveiling of a brand new look for its growing brewery, including a new logo, new cans and new bottle labels for its entire lineup. In addition, two new beers will be released – a Sixth Anniversary IPL (a hoppy lager) and Overhang Bourbon Aged Imperial Porter, the final beer in Two Beers Brewing’s Alta Series – to the tune of live music, seasonal beer, delicious food from Where Ya At Matt, raffle prizes and more.”
- The always-popular Phinney Neighborhood Association Winter Beer Taste is back for its 26th year on Saturday, November 9. 31 breweries and cideries are confirmed for the event, and special beers suck as Black Raven Splinters and Fremont Bourbon Barrel Aged Dark Star will be pouring. Check out their website for more info. Tickets are available online now, but there is always a good possibility that this event will sell out in advance.
