Press Release:

Beers Made By Walking (BMBW) is a program that invites brewers to go on nature hikes and make new beer inspired by plants that are identified on the trail. Today BMBW and the Mountains to Sound Greenway Trust (Greenway Trust) announce the release of eleven new beers/ciders that are inspired by hikes around the Greenway near Seattle. The beers will be served at a special tapping on October 15th, from 6-9pm, at Naked City Brewery in Seattle.

The featured beers/cider were produced through a collaboration between BMBW and the Greenway Trust after a series of public hikes, led by Greenway experts, with local brewers throughout the summer. Each brewery is donating their specialty beer for this event and a percentage of the the beer sales on October 15 will support the Mountains to Sound Greenway.

Participating local brewers/cideries include: Brickyard Brewing, Fremont Brewing, Ghostfish Brewing, Hi-Fi Brewing, Lantern Brewing, Machine House Brewery, Naked City Brewing, Seattle Cider Co., Stoup Brewing, Tin Dog Brewing, and Two Beers Brewing. Hikes took place along the Mountains to Sound Greenway Corridor.

Each brewery will serve their new beer on October 15th at Naked City Brewery. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet some of the brewers, learn about the various hikes that inspired the beers, and learn about some of the Greenway Trust and BMBW’s recent work.
