Brouwer’s Cafe Celebrates 10th Anniversary This Weekend With 20 Special Beers

March 25th, 2015 · No Comments · Events

What’s your favorite Brouwer’s memory? As we are coming up on Brouwer’s Cafe’s 10th anniversary this weekend, it’s fun to think back about the role that Brouwer’s has played in the Seattle beer scene. It is safe to say that many of us have enjoyed some amazing beer and had some great times there.

This weekend, Brouwer’s will again be pouring some amazing beers in celebration of their anniversary. They’ll have a special sour beer that they blended with New Belgium, and they’ll also pour an Imperial IPA that they brewed with Reuben’s Brews. In addition, they’ll be pulling some kegs out of the cellar for the event. They are planning to have a total of 20 very special beers pouring for your enjoyment. Keep reading below for more detail.

As for my favorite Brouwer’s memory, that is an easy one. The first date I had with my now wife, Jeanne, was going out to a Mariners game. When we were discussing where to go for a drink after the game, she nonchalantly suggested that we go to Brouwer’s. That’s about all I needed to hear….

Press Release:

Next up is our 10th Anniversary, on Saturday March 28th, a major milestone for us! It’s hard to believe it’s been 10 years already, or just how much Seattle and the Craft Beer Industry has changed! What were you doing in 2005? What’s your first (or favorite!) Brouwers memory? We’d love to know!

In honor of this 10-year milestone we have two very special beers to share with you. New Belgium was kind enough to open up their “wood forest” and allow us to blend a sour beer.  We had a great time hanging out with Eric Salazar, on a sunny December day in Fort Collins, where we tasted close to 20 different fouders. We came up with a 50/50 fouder blend we think everyone will enjoy, but this is a draft only offering.

The second beer was brewed at one of our favorite Seattle Breweries, Reuben’s Brews. Adam, Mike and Thor were great hosts and allowed us to sit in on the brew, on a sunny Monday in early March. This IIPA, appropriately named Gobsmacked (a British slang term for astonished) is a blend of Citra, Mosaic and Galaxy Hops, and it will have your lips smacking.

We are also known for hiding beers in our cellar for a future, special day, and that day is upon us! So, we’ve been digging around looking for beers worthy of our 10th Anniversary, including as many past anniversary beers (from both Brouwers and Bottleworks) as we can find. Attached is the list of the 17 beers we’ve come up with thus far, but we are shooting to put a total of 20 on draft for this event. 10 for the 10thand 10 for the next 10 years!
