Two Beers Brewery is inviting you, WABLers to check out their new brewery in SODO this Saturday, February 20th. The event starts at 1pm and brewer Joel & Co. will have some tasty brews for the occasion including a Simcoe Dry-Hopped Firkin on the bar for $3 a pint. Other beers on tap will include 20:20 Blonde, Immersion Amber, SoDo Brown, Echo IPA, Evo. IPA and possibly Winter Hop (if there is any left). A sampler of all 6 will be on special for $6 (6 – 5 oz samples). As always make sure to bring your WABL passport!

If you plan on attending, send Lisa an email to let her know how many people are in your group.

Uber Tavern is getting in on the Pliny the Younger madness, and then some. Last night, they tapped a cask of the 2009 Full Sail Bourbon Barrel Black Gold Imperial Stout, which is surely gone. They also tapped a keg of Russian River Consecration, which is still flowing. Tonight, they will be tapping kegs of Pliny the Younger and Pliny the Elder. Get some when they open at 4pm. On tap of that, they’ll be tapping kegs of Russian River Supplication and Lost Abey Angel’s Share sometime this weekend. Jebus, my liver hurts.

– Naked City Taphouse will have a cask of the Big Al Soulicious Barrle-aged Sour on their bar top when they open at 4pm tonight. I’ve heard good things about this one and I’d love to try it. Someone will have to have my share and let me know how it is.

– If you still haven’t bought your tickets for the upcoming Washington Cask Festival, you’d best get on that ASAP. As of yesterday, they had less than 150 tickets remaining for the 1st session and they very well may be gone within a week. This one is not to be missed.

– Check out this week’s issue of the Seattle Weekly for a piece I did in their Spring seasonal “Beer Pages”. I’ll be contributing for the other 3 seasonal sections coming later this year as well. I just realized yesterday that it was odd that the person usually writing about beer for the Weekly, Maggie Savarino, didn’t do this story. Sounds like she is no longer writing for the Weekly, and I hope she’s moving on to bigger and better things. I really enjoyed reading her craft beer coverage, and she truly is an advocate for good beer.

    Pliny lasted about 20 minutes at Uber last night. Seems to be about the going rate these days.

    The Black Gold was still going when I left at 8Pm last night. I did my best to kill the cask, but there should be a couple left in there.
