Cheers to a great first year at Schooner Exact Brewing’s pub down in SODO! If you still haven’t visited the pub/restaurant that was opened a year ago attached to the existing brewery, you are truly missing out. I just had their B.L.A.T. down there the other day, and the bun full of pork belly, avocado, pickled green tomatoes smoky mayo and lettuce left me wanting another one right then and there.
They’ve been celebrating at the pub all week, but things really get exciting starting today. In addition to some food specials, today they will be pouring the 2012 Bourbon-Aged Imperial Porter on draught. Saturday, they’ll break out a Raspberry Wheat Sour. Then, on Sunday they’ll be releasing their popular seasonal Hoppy the Woodsman in draught and in 22oz bottles for the first time, and they will also have a 3-year vertical tasting of the base beer, Hoppy Holidays.
Following is a press release with more info:
Schooner EXACT Brewing Company is set to release the highly acclaimed Hoppy The Woodsman! For the first time ever, Hoppy The Woodsman will be available in 22oz bottles as well as on draft. Come help us celebrate the release on Sunday, November 10th at the Brew Pub located at 3901 1st Ave. S. Seattle. We are open daily from 11AM-9PM and serve delicious food to pair with our fine beer.
At 8% ABV, Hoppy The Woodsman is a rich oak-aged beer with a light hop note and a strong toasty malt character. Aroma results from the seamless blend of vanilla, caramel, brandied cherry, and Yakima Valley Hops. Flavors of caramel and oak are offset by the warmth of alcohol. A perfect winter warmer that is well balanced to the end.
”This beer is testament to Schooner EXACT’s commitment to brewing the finest hand-crafted ales in the Pacific Northwest” said Keith Kinsey, Regional Sales Manager for Schooner EXACT. “Our staff is made up of beer enthusiasts who banded together to create an exquisite barrel-aged strong ale that compliments the Pacific Northwest cuisine.”
In addition to its highly regarded Hoppy The Woodsman, Schooner EXACT brews 3-Grid IPA, West Point Pale Ale, King St. Brown Ale, Profanity Hill Porter, Hoppy Holidays Winter Ale, Gateway Golden Ale, Gallant Maiden Hefeweizen, and many other specialty beers released throughout the year. Our beers can always be found at our Brew Pub on 1st Ave. S. and at many select restaurants and grocery stores in the Pacific Northwest.
