I’m a little late to get this press release up, but it is not too late to join The Hopvine in celebrating 20 great years on Capitol Hill. Owner Bob Brenlin is an advocate for quality beer, and The Hopvine is one of Seattle’s original “beer bars”. They are celebrating with events this entire week, including the release of some special beers brewed just for the Hopvine’s anniversary. See the press release below for full details and a full list of special release beers.
Cheers to Bob and the rest of the crew at Hopvine!
The Hopvine is celebrating 20 years on 15th Ave East serving the best in craft beer combined with comforting food and a pub setting that welcomes its neighbors. The focus is on the best in craft beer and we take pride in working with many of our brewer friends to showcase their products in the best possible way. We only have 12 taps ensuring quick pour through and constant freshness. A short draw from keg to tap and weekly tap and line cleaning also make for the best beer experience. Over the years we have introduced many new beers to our friends on 15th E and before it was common. Our beer list for 20 years has been hop forward, adventuresome and always fresh. We have encouraged our customers to meet the brewers behind the beers and have introduced amazing beers and the people that make them in our Brewer Night series.
Along with the beer we have become known for our chef-inspired soups and comfort food. Chef Congdon has been creating food to deliciously pair with craft beer in a kitchen that is incredibly small but not creatively limiting. We wouldn’t be the pub we are without the amazing people who bring the beer and food to life at the Hopvine. The Hopvine has an amazing crew. They are beer and world knowledgeable and deliver the ultimate pub experience.
We have a series of events that highlight what we have done over the years. You are invited to enjoy what we think will be a fantastic week. There will be at least 20 unique and wonderful beers released throughout the week from our brewer friends. There will be anniversary beers brewed specially for us and cellared beers that we guarantee will blow your mind.
