Seattle beer drinkers are spoiled with options on any given weekend, but every once in a while there is so much going on that it can be tough to make up your mind on what to do. This upcoming weekend is one of those times.
Washington Beer Open House – From Noon to 5pm on Saturday, 134 breweries around the state will be taking place in the 7th Annual Washington Beer Open House. Breweries will be opening their doors to the public to give tours, pour special beers and do all other sorts of fun stuff. Check out the full list of events here.
Brouwer’s Hardliver Barleywine Fest – 40+ barleywines pouring all at once starting at 11am on Saturday, March 25. Brouwer’s knows how to throw a special event, and this is one of its most popular festivals. It will be busy, but there are always plenty of great beers pouring the day after if you want to avoid the crowds.
The Masonry/KEXP Farmhouse Fest – The beer lineup at this event is going to be fantastic. The ticket price is steep, but these are not cheap beers (if you could even get your hands on them) and all proceeds benefit KEXP. Check out my previous post about the event here and the full beer list here.
Hops & Props at The Museum of Flight – This is one of Seattle’s most unique beer events. Tickets sell out quickly every year, but there are a few listings on Craigslist for tickets at face value, or close to it. Over 100 breweries will be pouring at the festival, which takes place throughout the exhibition halls at The Museum of Flight.
And, if that isn’t enough, you can kick things off tonight by heading to Bottleworks to celebrate their 18th (!!) anniversary or Beveridge Place Pub for a rare brewers night with Foggy Noggin from Bothell.
