The Masonry to Celebrate 2nd Anniversary This Saturday With Special Lineup of Beers

July 28th, 2015 · Events, Washington Breweries

The Masonry, the cozy beer bar and restaurant located in lower Queen Anne, has become one of my favorite places in Seattle to grab a beer. The owners know their beer and are fans of styles that get my attention. Stop by to check out the taplist any day of the week, and you are likely to find sours/wild ales, flavorful but clean IPAs, barrel-aged specialties and crisp lagers to choose from. The meatballs are also one of the best food items you’ll find on any menu in Seattle (make sure to get an order of house-made focaccia to soak up the sauce). The kitchen staff also knows how to put together some fantastic beer dinners. I’ve been to three of them in the past year, and it is impressive what they put out with such a small kitchen that has limited equipment.

The Masonry crew will be celebrating their 2nd anniversary this Saturday by filling their taps with a bunch of specialty beers, including an anniversary beer called “Fellowcraft” from their friends at Holy Mountain Brewing:

Fellowcraft was brewed in April, the base beer is a light pale ale hopped heavily with Amarillo. It was transferred to an oak puncheon and aged with a mixed brettanomyces culture for 3 months before being dry hopped in the barrel. Fellowcraft will be available only on draught at both The Masonry and the Holy Mountain taproom while the limited supply lasts.

The party will be from open to close (11:30am to Midnight) this Saturday, August 1. In the theme of their beer and music geekiness that they get to express at the pub on a daily basis, they’ll have some old-school video games going for tournaments, including Mario Kart, Ken Griffey Baseball, NHL 94 and Tecmo Bowl (I call that I’m the Bears).

The expected tap list includes:

Holy Mountain Fellowcraft (our 2nd Anniversary Beer)
Ballast Point Calm Before The Storm
Boulevard Saison Brett 2014
Bruery Sour in the Rye
Engine House #9 Nectarberry
Epic Big Bad Baptist 2014
Firestone Walker Helldorado
Jolly Pumpkin Noel de Calabaza 2013
Logsdon Oak Aged Seizoen Bretta
Mikkeller Rauch Beer Geek Breakfast 2013
Off Color Biere de Garde Dog
Stillwater Table Beer
Tilquin Gueuze
Victory Braumeister

For the hopheads we will have two pins
Engine House #9 House IPA
Silver City Clear Creek Pale w/ Grapefruit

GreatPumpkinIt’s that time of year again. Even though summer is far from over, pumpkin beers are starting to hit the shelves. There is a lot of pumpkin-related news from Elysian Brewing in the press release below, including information about this year’s Great Pumpkin Beer Festival.

Press release:

Atypical to summertime practices of the carefree, the orange-minded brewers at Elysian have been thinking, breathing, and brewing pumpkin to prepare for its return to the shelves this August. This seasonally unseasonal tradition is part of the fabric of the brewing team and, each year, it all begins with the return of Night Owl, Elysian’s flagship pumpkin beer.

Elysian’s pumpkin patch grows with the return of Great American Beer Festival silver medal winners, The Great Pumpkin Imperial Pumpkin Ale (2007) and Dark o’ The Moon Pumpkin Stout (2010), along with Punkuccino Coffee Pumpkin Ale, an instant crowd favorite after its debut in bottles last year. These coveted specialty brews can be found in limited 22-ounce bottles and draft.

Elysian’s four bottled pumpkin beers are just the tip of the gourd: by the time the Great Pumpkin Beer Festival returns for its 11th year, the Elysian crew will have brewed almost 20 different pumpkin beers! These beers, among many others, will be featured at this year’s fest on Friday, October 2 and Saturday, October 3 at Elysian’s Airport Way production facility in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood. The GPBF celebrates the gourd with around 80 different pumpkin beers from across the country, the sporadic sounds of Chaotic Noise marching band, KEXP DJs Stevie Zoom and Riz Rollins, games, Pumpkin Royalty, local food trucks, a costume contest, and more. The highlight of the 21+ fest is the tapping of Giant Pumpkins that have been scooped, scorched, filled with beer, sealed, conditioned, and then tapped for all to enjoy. Tickets go on sale August 1.

Video: Hilliard’s Beer Collaborates With Jameson Irish Whiskey

July 22nd, 2015 · Washington Breweries

Hilliard’s Beer, located in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, was one of just five breweries invited to collaborate with Jameson Irish Whiskey for their Drinking Buddies program. Todd Garrett and Adam Merkl of Hilliard’s were lucky enough to be invited to visit the Jameson distillery in Ireland, and they were sent home with five whiskey barrels to create a Jameson-inspired beer.

The embedded video is a recap of Garrett and Merkl’s visit to Jameson, as well as a nice overview of Hilliard’s.

After some experimentation, Hilliard’s decided to brew a beer inspired by the classic whiskey sour cocktail. They brewed a kettle-soured saison and fermented it with Belgian yeast and lactobacillus, and then they aged the beer in the Jameson barrels. The resulting beer should be tart and lemony, with flavors of caramel, vanilla and charred oak imparted by the barrels.

The beer will be released to the public on Wednesday, August 19. In addition to being available at the Hilliard’s taproom in Ballard, select spots around town will also be pouring it.

Original press release:

NEW YORK, NY – (June 23, 2015) Jameson® Irish whiskey announces today the next phase of the Jameson Drinking Buddies program, highlighting distinct craft beer collaborations with American breweries. Continuing on last year’s successful collaboration with KelSo Beer Company of Brooklyn, Jameson is partnering with five local breweries from across the US who exemplify devotion to the spirit of their neighborhoods and share Jameson’s passion for craft & quality in the beer they produce.

The five breweries from across the US include – Angel City Brewery in Los Angeles, Captain Lawrence Brewing Company in New York, Deep Ellum Brewing Company in Dallas, Great Divide Brewing Company in Denver, and Hilliard’s Beer in Seattle. Jameson invited each brewery to the distillery in Ireland, and then sent them home with Jameson Whiskey barrels to create a limited edition beer inspired by both their experience in Ireland, and their own unique neighborhood.

Showcased in a video series, being released over the coming weeks on JamesonNeighborhood.com, is the story of each partner brewery in the Drinking Buddies program. From visiting the Jameson distillery in Ireland, to becoming buddies with the whiskey distillers, the series sheds light on each brewer’s Drinking Buddies experience. Following the distillery visit, the brewers returned home to their neighborhood breweries with Jameson barrels, where the episodes chronicle the beers they ultimately brewed.

“The breweries involved share Jameson’s passion for craftsmanship, quality, and creativity,” said Sona Bajaria, Director, Jameson Irish Whiskey, Pernod Ricard USA. “With the creation of these locally brewed Jameson-inspired beers, our goal is to pay homage to the spirit of each brewery’s neighborhood.”

Hilliard’s Beer Jameson Whiskey Barrel Sour
– Color – Chestnut
– Aroma – Citrus, spiced wood, and a light sweetness
– Flavor – Kettle-soured Saison with tart, lemony notes from the Belgian yeast and lactobacillus. Flavors of caramel, vanilla and charred oak imparted by the barrels.
– ABV – 5.5%

3rd Annual Schooner Exact Hop Field Trip Set for August 29

July 20th, 2015 · Events, Washington Breweries

IMG_0233Once I started getting into the beer scene after moving to Seattle in 2005, one of the first things I did was join WABL for a bus trip out to Yakima to tour a hop farm and processing plant. To this day, that trip is one of the highlights of all the great things I’ve experienced in the Washington beer world. Yakima Valley contains about 75% of the total United States hop acreage.

Meet Selkirk Abbey Brewing at The Beer Junction Tonight

July 16th, 2015 · Events

Selkirk Abbey Brewing, located in Post Falls, ID, entered the Seattle market around a year ago. Prior to that, their beers were available in Eastern Washington, and I’d heard rumors of how good their Belgian-style ales were. If you still haven’t tried anything from them, you can sample five of their beers this evening at The Beer Junction. Someone from the brewery (Brewer, owner, sales rep? Not sure.) will be on hand for the event as well.

They will be pouring Chapel Witbier, Deacon Belgian Pale Ale, St. Stephen Saison, Augustine Rye Saison and Infidel Imperial Belgian IPA. You can sample all five of the beers for $4 from 5pm to 8pm this evening (Thursday, July 16).

More about Selkirk Abbey:

The Selkirk Abbey Brewing Company is located in Post Falls in scenic Northern Idaho.  The Brewery has an abbey themed tap room that is a warm, comfortable, and a surprising contrast from the building’s industrial exterior. The production floor is home to a custom built, oversized fifteen barrel direct fire brewhouse, nine fifteen barrel fermenters and just two fifteen barrel brite tanks. A typical brewery with similar equipment would be making considerably more beer than we do here at Selkirk Abbey. Our process is more demanding, more time consuming and considerably less forgiving. So we do it a little slower, and a lot more carefully. Taking our time and catering to our yeast allows us to focus on what is important, our beer. We believe that the extra time and care we give our beer, shows in the glass. We think you’ll agree It is not our goal to be Idaho’s largest brewery. There are several other breweries in the state better suited to that task. Our goal is to produce the best possible beer we can and deliver it to as many people who appreciate it that we can, while maintaining our unusually high standards.

More info on the beers:

Chapel Witbier
Selkirk Abbey’s classic Belgian witbier is light in body and delightfully easy-drinking; brewed with orange peel and coriander to provide a kiss of citrus that’s sure to be refreshing any time of the year. 4.9% ABV

Deacon Belgian Pale Ale
Hops and grains from the great Northwest, Belgian yeast and Idaho’s best water combine to make this smooth, dry Pale Ale. Excellent with a meal or simply on its own this delicious, crisp little crowd pleaser is a house favorite.5.5% ABV

St. Stephen Saison
Saint Stephen is our take on the classic Belgian saison. Traditionally brewed in the winter months for drinking during the heat of the summer, these farmhouse ales feature a complex flavor profile. Spicy yeast aromas combine with the finest European malts and noble hops to produce a beer with uncommon depth of flavor. 7.9% ABV

Augustine Rye Saison
The archetypical saison will let the yeast talk over the malt and hops. We just thought that Rye might have something to add to the conversation. Listening closely it seems to say: “I belong here” and we agree. 6.0% ABV

Infidel Imperial Belgian IPA
Unbowed and unrepentant, this free spirit makes no apologies and asks for no forgiveness. Infidel is an imperial Belgian style IPA that set the standard for the style. Its rich satisfying flavor of spicy citrus, pine and grassy earthiness are carried by a malt bill and abv big enough to run with it. 8.2% ABV

Chuck’s Hop Shop CD to Host For the Funk of It Sour Beer Fest This Saturday

July 15th, 2015 · Events

Sour beer! Some of us love it, some of you hate it. For those of us that do enjoy the varied flavors of sour and wild ales, Chuck’s Hop Shop in the Central District will be hosting For the Funk of It this Saturday, July 18. The event will feature 30 sour beers on tap starting when they open at 11am. You will be able to get 4oz tasters of the beers, making this a wonderful way to try a bunch of different sours. If you are new to sour beers, come check out what they are all about.

Details from Chuck’s:

Join us for a day of enamel eating, mouth puckering, indigestion inducing sour beer! We are going to tap 30 sour beers from some of our favorite breweries. Fremont Brewing Company, Block 15 Brewing Co., Holy Mountain Brewing, Perennial Artisan Ales, and Firestone Walker Brewing Company are just a few of the breweries that have made the cut!

When you arrive at the door we will have a table set up where you can purchase a taster glass and 9 tasting tickets for $10. Please have your ID ready as well so we can check it and stamp your hand! Beers will be priced on a tiered system, with 4 ounce pours ranging in price from 1 to 3 tickets. Additional tickets can be purchased at the door or at the bar for $1 each. Tickets may also be used as gratuity.

Confirmed Beers for the event include:
The Lost Abbey Red Poppy Flanders Red
The Lost Abbey Framboise de Amorosa
Holy Mountain Apricot Table Sour
Holy Mountain Blackberry Table Sour
Aslan Brewing Disco Lemonade Berliner Weisse blended with raspberry puree
Aslan Head of Security Sour Brown Ale
Firestone Walker 2014 Bretta Weisse
Block 15 Cardinal Coalesence
Green Flash Le Freak Barrique
Ballast Point Raspberry Sour Wench

In addition to these beers and more on draft, Chuck’s announced they will have bottles of El Cuatro from The Ale Apothecary for sale. They’ll be crazy expensive, though. From Chuck’s:

It’s is our pleasure to reveal the contents of our cryptic white box post, The Ale Apothecary El Cuatro!! Paul hooked us up with 4 cases that will be available at 11:00 am! One per customer, $36.59 per bottle, not available a moment sooner than July 18th. ?#?FirstTimeInSeattle?

I love what I’ve had from The Ale Apothecary in the past, but that’s way above my price range. I’m sure they won’t have a problem selling them out, though.

Chuck’s expects a large crowd for this event, so be prepared:

For those of you that joined us for our 1st Anniversary Party, you know the line was colossal. Our move to a ticket-based format is intended to increase the speed of the lines, reducing transaction times and eliminating the need to search for a tab or make change every time we serve a beer.

And as always, please leave the car at home–take an Uber, cab, Lyft, pair of feet, or bring a designated driver! We all love beer, and we love all of you, and we want to keep this event safe and see you all here for many more years to come!

2) 253 Pilsner

253 Pilsner This NW Pilsner pays homage to those local brewers who came long before us, a shout-out to our home, the 253. Our NW spin on a classic pilsner-style lager. Brewed woth NW Pale and Pilsner malt, hopped with Sterling and Cascade, this brew is 100% WA. An extremely refreshing, dry, and crisp authentic Pilsner with that classic mineral, cracker like finish. Executed with precision, patience, and care, yielding a truly premium Pilsner. 5.2% ABV / 32 IBU

But it’s Citra, Amarillo and blood orange peel and puree that’ll really get you on your feet.  Never dance? We’ll see about that.  5.4% ABV

2) Dayglow IPA

This is a beer with the insistent beat of hops, as driving and inevitable as a Full Moon party in Haad Rin. It drips with tropical, sunshiny Mosaic, and twinkles with touches of Eldorado and Centennial. A touch of wheat hazes the malt bill a bit around the edges, and the IBUs are stuck in the mid-sixties. 6.5% ABV

 

Fish Brewing

Olympia

1) Blackbird Island Hopfenweizen

Designed as a celebration of hops, the beer pours a deep, hazy gold, with orange highlights, has intense floral, spice and citrus aromatics, a lingering hop bitterness, and a banana bread sweetness with hints of clove and vanilla. 6.1% ABV / 19 IBU

Earthy aromatics of German hops and malts with slight alcohol sweetness balanced by Peach acidity and flavor result in a very drinkable summer beer. 10% ABV

Light-bodied and golden, Full Blast Blonde is our ode to the glories of summer. American Blonde Ale. 4% ABV / 20 IBU

 

Fremont Brewing

Seattle

1) Gose

Our take on the traditional German style—tart and refreshing with a hint of spice from the coriander and salt. 4% ABV / 10 IBU

Eastsound

1) K-Pod Kolsch

The result is a refreshingly fruity ale with a peppery bite and just a touch of lingering blackberry licorice. 6% ABV

2) Rabbit Imperial IPA

Originally from a homebrew recipe gone horribly awesome! It started as a white IPA, a la Chainbreaker, but add buckets of honey, and a ton of extra hops (citra, of course), along with mandarine orange and corriander, and a high gravity yeast to finish it all off, and we end up with something far from a white IPA. Coming in at about 9% with over 100 IBU, the residual sweetness balances out the extreme citra hop load creating a wonderfully rich and refreshing IPA. Rabbit. Because hoppy. 9% ABV / 100 IBU

3) Bondsman’s ESB

A straight up, traditional, open fermented English Style Strong Bitter. Brewed with floor malted maris otter malt and all english hops — a true version of the style is such a treat.

A floral hop addition rounds out the aroma pleasantly.

2) Bourbon Supertonic India Black Ale
