Elysian’s 13th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Fest Supports Fred Hutch Cancer Research

September 8th, 2017 · Uncategorized

Coming up on September 29 & 30, 100% of the proceeds from Elysian Brewing’s 13th Annual Great Pumpkin Beer Festival will go to support the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. This is just one of several ways that Elysian has supported Fred Hutch in recent years (more info below). Regardless what you do or don’t think of Elysian’s connection to AB, you have to give the brewery credit for going above and beyond to support a very worthy cause.

The event moves to Seattle Center this year, where you’ll have 80+ pumpkin beers to choose from.

For all of you pumpkin beer haters: whatever. More for my wife and me. There is plenty of room in my life for both fresh hops and pumpkin beer.

More info from Elysian:

2017 marks the 13th year for Elysian’s Great Pumpkin Beer Festival – and we invite you to join us at a brand new location – the Seattle Center, where 80+ pumpkin beers (plus a couple surprises) from near and far will be poured, including twenty or so from Elysian’s pumpkin-crazed brewers and their collaborators.

In addition to loads of pumpkin brews, local food trucks, Chaotic Noise Marching CorpsKEXP DJs Riz Rollins & Stevie Zoom, pumpkin carving, and fall festivities scattered throughout the event – New to GPBF this year (drumroll please…) we are partnering with FRED HUTCH!

We are so excited to partner with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center for GPBF this year. Elysian and Fred Hutch began a partnership five years ago through Obliteride, an annual bike ride where every rider-raised dollar goes toward lifesaving research at Fred Hutch. Building on the relationship, we continued to support Fred Hutch through Base2Space, which allows people an opportunity to climb up the Space Needle and raise funds for cancer research. And, earlier this year, we joined Fred Hutch again for Slayride Banked Slalom, a race on the slopes of Stevens Pass to generate even more dollars for the organization. When we decided, for the first time in the 13 years of GPBF, to look for a partner to join us in this event, we looked no further than Fred Hutch. We are incredibly proud to say that 100% of the proceeds of GPBF will be provided to Fred Hutch in our joint and continued quest to search for the cure.

For those who haven’t been to GPBF – during each session, we have a giant, several-hundred pound pumpkin that is scooped, scorched, filled with Elysian pumpkin beer, sealed, conditioned, and then tapped at the fest for all to enjoy.

As you know Orange is the theme – interpret that as you will but the more orange, the better! …and if you want to bust out a full costume, that’s always encouraged! Each day of the festival, some of our finest will be roaming through the crowds to select the most festive bunch to compete for a prize.

More event details to follow, and please stay tuned to Elysian’s GPBF page as we fill in specifics like participating breweries, food vendors, and activities. For now, get your tickets, plan your costume – and we’ll see you there!

Quick note for all you Pumpkinfest fans – The weekend prior to GPBF, on Saturday, September 23rd, we will be hosting the 5th Annual Great Pumpkin Weigh-Off at our Production Brewery in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood.

Mark Your Calendar: Fresh Hop Throwdown Returns to The Noble Fir on September 23

August 25th, 2017 · Events

Fresh Hop Throwdown in 2011. Thanks to +Russ for the pic.

If you are a fan of fresh hop beers and live in Seattle, you won’t want to miss the 7th Annual Fresh Hop Throwdown at The Noble Fir in Ballard on Saturday, September 23.

There are always a lot of fresh hop beers floating around during September and October, and some of us do everything we can to try as many different examples as possible. I’ll be working with Rick Weersing and Ellen Kelly of The Noble Fir to put together a lineup of about 16 different fresh hop beers that will all be available when the bar opens at 4pm. There will also be a private blind judging of the lineup earlier in the day and the winning brewery will be announced later at the event. Holy Mountain Brewing has taken top honors at the event for two years in a row. Will they make it a third, or will someone else take their spot?

If you are new to fresh hop beers, this is a great event to introduce you to them. What is a fresh hop beer? Most of the annual crop is processed into dried hops that store well and will last throughout the year. Before hops are dried, they are known as “fresh hops” or “wet hops”. When beer is brewed with these fresh hops straight off the vine (or “bine”, to really be correct), it can impart a very unique flavor profile vs. the use of typical dried hops. Fresh hops can impart a fresh, green, earthy hop taste, and they can really enhance the aroma of a beer. Some fresh hop beers are brewed exclusively with wet hops, while others are brewed with a combination of wet and dry hops. In addition to finding fresh hop beers on draft, you’ll be able to find bottled fresh hop beers from Sep to Nov.

If anyone has questions about the event, feel free to send me an email.

A limited number of tickets are available for an upcoming barrel blending workshop on Tuesday, September 19 at 6pm at Stoup Brewing, located in Ballard.

Stoup teamed up with Wander Brewing, located in Bellingham, WA, for the Washington Beer Collaboration Festival, which was held this past weekend.

All attendees will learn the story behind both beers and have a chance to play with components in small groups, experimenting with various combinations. Each participant will also leave with 500ml each of 2 collaboration beers that were bottled exclusively for this event.
There is only room for 40 people to attend this blending workshop.
Tickets are $65 and include:
-An intimate educational experience with the brewers from Stoup & Wander
-Blending exercise
-4 tasters (2 collaboration beers + 1 additional beer from each brewery)
-Pint of your choice from the 4 beers above
-1 500ml btl of each of the 2 collaboration beers bottled exclusively for this event

Fresh Hop Season is Almost Here: Two Beers Fresh Hop IPA Coming August 23

August 17th, 2017 · Washington Breweries

Thanks to +Russ for the image.

Thanks to +Russ for the image.

My favorite time of the year is almost here. It’s tough to beat fresh hop beer season here in the Pacific Northwest.

The unofficial kickoff of fresh hop season around here is the release of Two Beers Brewing Fresh Hop IPA. This year’s version will be released on August 23 at The Woods tasting room in SoDo.

More info from the brewery:

SEATTLE (August 17, 2017) – Two Beers Brewing is excited to announce the release of its most anticipated beer of the year – Fresh Hop IPA! Scheduled for release on Wednesday, August 23 at The Woods tasting room in SoDo, this highly sought after brew marks the first fresh hop release of the season, available in 12-ounce cans and on draft. First brewed in 2009, Fresh Hop IPA enters its ninth season on the brewery’s fall lineup, remaining one of the Seattle-based brewery’s most popular releases. A true labor of love, Fresh Hop IPA is made with fresh Centennial hops from the Yakima Valley, handpicked by dozens of volunteers on the brewery dock. Winning first place at the 2015 Fresh Hop Festival in Yakima, craft beer lovers are encouraged to pick up a six-pack soon, as this  celebrated hyper seasonal will only be around through the end of September!


“Fresh Hop has always been one of our favorite annual traditions,” said Joel VandenBrink, founder & CEO of Two Beers Brewing Co. “There’s something truly special about picking hops off the vine with the people who we know will be the first to line up to enjoy our Fresh Hop IPA. We also love the chance to connect people directly to the ingredients in their beer and be a part of the process. And, of course, enjoy a pint of the final product together!”


A hyper seasonal, Two Beers Brewing’s Fresh Hop IPA is known for its intense hop flavor and unique brewing process, which involves a same-day round trip drive to Yakima, four hours of picking fresh hops off the vine and a 24-hour brewing process. Ringing in at approximately 70 IBUs and 6.2% ABV, Two Beers Brewing’s annual Fresh Hop IPA features a juicy citrus aroma – offering hints of grapefruit and passion fruit – that can be attributed to the fresh Yakima Valley-grown Centennial hops used to create it. Dark straw in color with light caramel malt tones, Fresh Hop resembles an aggressively dry-hopped IPA, but packing the punch and flavor only fresh hops can deliver. In addition to Centennial hops, this beer features locally grown Amarillo, Cascade, and Citra hops, helping this popular beer achieve its bright and delightfully bitter flavor. Available in 12-ounce cans and on draft throughout Washington, Oregon, Alaska and Idaho, this beer will only be available for a limited time.


Celebrate the release of this exciting beer on Wednesday, August 23 at The Woods tasting room in SoDo (4660 Ohio Ave S) from 3-9pm. Pints and tasters will be available, with six-packs, t-shirts, stickers and more available for purchase from The Woods retail space. Shared with Seattle Cider Company, The Woods tasting room features pool, shuffleboard and an outdoor patio, as well as food from Bread & Circuses available for purchase.

Latona Pub Celebrates 30 (!!!!) Years With 6 Nights of Events

August 7th, 2017 · Events

30 years. That’s how long the Latona Pub has been pouring quality, local beer for thirsty Seattle drinkers. Still one of Seattle’s best places to get a pint, the Latona Pub was possibly the first alehouse in Seattle to focus on a rotating selection of local beer. Owner Bob Brenlin has been one of craft beer’s biggest advocates since the beginning. Check out my profile of him in the October 2012 issue of the Northwest Brewing News for some good background on Latona Pub.

Latona Pub officially turns 30 on Friday, August 18. But, they will host a week of celebrations running from August 14 to 19. See below for more info and details on the events.

Congrats to owner Bob and the rest of the team!

Press Release:

30 years at the Latona Pub


On Friday, August 18th, the Latona Pub will turn 30 years old.

Over those 30 years, the Latona has grown into one of the premier craft beer bars on the West Coast by focusing on delivering the beer to the consumer’s glass fresh, clean, and cold. To that end, the neighborhood pub on the corner of 65th St. and Latona Avenue pioneered quality assurance standards like short draws from keg to glass, weekly cleaning of lines, regular changing of lines, and a limited number of taps to ensure constant pour through. The close relationship developed between the Latona and our brewer friends insures that the beer is self-distributed, often delivered days after kegging. With one less hand in distribution the beer is one step closer to the fresh and wonderful beer the brewer intended.

This reputation for quality handling of beers is a cornerstone of the Latona’s strong ties to the local PNW brewing scene. By embracing and promoting young breweries and hosting monthly Brewer’s Nights, the pub has been the site of several “first pours” of what have become classic Washington microbrews—directly connecting the brewer and the beer to the drinker and the community.

That sincere approach to community building has been the direct cause of countless batches of beer brewed exclusively for the Latona. These small batches of beer have encouraged the brewer to think outside the box, often resulting in exciting new brews that take on a life of their own and become a part of the brewery’s core lineup. The number of beers brewed for the Latona over 30 years is significant and many have become important beers in the history of the craft beer movement.

In recent years, the Latona has continued that tradition with its Winter and Summer beer series in which select breweries work with the pub on a fresh brew recipe in any number of styles. These beers are then released at an intimate three-course Brewer’s Dinner in the pub’s loft, seating between 18-22 people, with the brewer discussing the thought process behind each beer. As part of the Latona’s 30th Anniversary, several notable local breweries have collaborated with the pub every month to bring some amazing beers to the table, such as Cloudburst’s Dont Hassle, Me Im Local Red, Holy Mountain’s Test of Time IPA, and—most recently—Reuben’s Brews Latona 30 Year Crush IPA. Every beer has been driven by a unique philosophy and camaraderie between the Latona and brewery that only a deep love of beer can foster.

A neighborhood pub is not only about beer, and despite being a craft beer pioneer, the pub has also developed a reputation for food and music. The Latona has a history of supporting local music, hosting the longest running Friday Night Jazz Happy Hour—25 years and going strong. After Boots, Barrie, and Murray held court for 17 years with their addicting brand of Dixieland jazz, Phil Sparks has carried on the tradition for the last 8 years with his rotating cast of local musicians. The pub’s musical legacy doesn’t stop at jazz, however, as many well-known folk, bluegrass, and blues musicians have graced the pub’s stage.

The kitchen at the Latona can best be described as “small, yet mighty.” Boasting a menu of elevated pub fare, the pub is immensely proud of its food. The burger stands as one of the best in the city, the salads are meals unto themselves, and the grilled cheese has been hailed several times as one of the greatest in town. Every ingredient is sourced as locally as possible and is delivered daily to maintain freshness. The menu changes seasonally, and the specials board acts as a proving ground for new items—such as the Latona Cubano, which quickly became a pub-goer favorite.

 However, a neighborhood pub can’t flourish on beer, entertainment, and food alone. It needs a community. In 30 years, the defining trait of the Latona has been the wonderful people who have sidled up to the bar. On any given night, the pub is filled with faces both familiar and fresh. The staff at the pub treat the place like a second home, and their starkly individual personalities have contributed heavily to the Latona’s character and success.

The Latona is proud to have played a significant part in the development of craft beer. From the early days, when a dozen breweries ruled the land, to today, where Washington state has close to 400, we have helped encourage high quality, creative beer.

To all our friends in the brewing community and to all our customers—it has been a fantastic, hoppy ride. We’re so thankful that you’ve made the Latona your neighborhood pub for 30 years, and we invite you to party with us during a week of celebrations running from August 14th to 19th. 

Monday August 14th………Stoup Brewing—Flanders Red Barrel Release and Beer Dinner.
6:30pm Brewer’s Dinner, Brewer’s Night at 8:30pm. Seats available for $40/person.

Tuesday August 15th………Legacy Brewers Night, 7pm. Celebrate the breweries that were key to the early days of the Latona—Pike Brewing, Hale’s Ales, Maritime Brewing, and Big Time Brewing.

Wednesday August 16th………Out of Towner’s Night, 7pm. We’ll be hosting our longtime friends from other corners of the West Coast, like Sierra Nevada, Rogue Brewing, Anderson Valley Brewing, and New Belgium.

Thursday August 17th………Cask Night, 7pm. Following a longtime tradition of presenting special casks on the bar.

Friday August 18th………Latona Music Night, 5pm-11pm. Celebrate happy hour with Phil Sparks at 5:30 and special music from Leif Totusek at 8pm.

Saturday August 19th………Latona pub 30th Anniversary Party. 7pm…Special beer, food, and live music at 9pm.

Kommuter Kölsch is light, malty German-style ale, brewed like a lager for maximum clarity with a bright, clean, refreshing taste.  Malt: German Pilsner, Vienna, CaraHell and Sauermalz.  Hops: “Noble” Sterling gives it just a hint of hoppiness to balance the malt-forwardness.  5.0% ABV / 20 IBU

4) Bainbridge 5th Anniversary Whiskey Barrel Aged Mocha Imperial Porter
Five years! Can’t believe it… This year the Anniversary beer was aged in a mix of Kentucky Bourbon and Bainbridge Organic Distillers’ whiskey barrels, blended with cacao nibs roasted for us by Powell & Jones Fine Chocolates and cold brew coffee from Storyville Coffee. A culmination of everything we’ve learned so far about beer, barrels, chocolate, and coffee; dedicated to you, our awesome fans. Cheers! 8.5%  ABV
