Drinking for the Holidays: Thanksgiving Week Event Listing

November 24th, 2015 · No Comments · Events

B-Bomb_webWhile most drinking establishments are closed on Thanksgiving, the days surrounding the holiday have plenty of special events to offer. The day before Thanksgiving is one of the biggest bar nights of the year, and while most people know Black Friday as a day to go shopping (or stay far away from shopping), many breweries & bars offer up special events featuring dark beers.

Below are just some of the events happening around town that you might want to check out. If you know of other events, feel free to leave a comment.

Wednesday Events:

Holiday Gose Release at Reuben’s Brews: “Just in time for Thanksgiving, we’re debuting our new Holiday Gose. This cranberry-orange variation of our award-winning gose is fermented with our house lactobacillus culture and includes 10 lbs of fresh cranberries per barrel, sweet orange zest, a touch of coriander and a hint of sea salt. We’re releasing the Holiday Gose in 22oz bottles in the taproom beginning at noon on Wednesday, Nov. 25! It will also be available on tap and for growler fills in the taproom. Bottles will be $7 each with a limit of two per person, per day.” Reuben’s is open from Noon to 9pm on Wednesday, closed on Thursday and then back to normal hours on Friday.

$1 Off Growler Fills at Two Doors Down: They are loading up the taps with beers from Boneyard, Old Schoolhouse, Flying Lion, Two Beers, Ghostfish, Fremont Orlison, Populuxe, Backwoods, Georgetown, Standard and more at Two Doors Down in Capitol Hill. They’ll be doing $1 off growler fills all day long.

$5 Growler Fills at Silver City: If you find yourself near the Silver City Brewery taproom in Bremerton on Wednesday, stop by for $5 growler fills. Some styles excluded. Open 2pm to 9:30pm.

Goose Island Bourbon County Tap-Out at Chuck’s Hop Shop Greenwood: “Chuck’s is thrilled to be the only location in Seattle to feature a pre-release BCBS tap-out as a little preview of what is to come! We will be tapping Standard, Coffee, Regal Rye, and Barleywine. Event starts at 4pm and ends promptly at 9pm.”

Slow Boat Tavern Opening: The new Slow Boat Tavern will officially open in Hillman City at 2pm on Wednesday. They’ll then be closed on Thanksgiving and open regular business hours for the foreseeable future after that. This place is going to rock. Many may recognize owner Ken Provost from his time managing Uber Tavern up on Aurora. I was able to visit the bar a couple of weeks ago, and it reminds me of a mix between Hooverville and Stumbling Monk, which are two fantastic bars. Check it out.

Friday Events:

Stout & Coffee Beer Fest at The Beer Junction: They will have 15+ stouts and coffee beers on tap to begin the fest. Drool-worthy list is here.

Fremont Brewing Bourbon Abominable (B-Bomb) Release:”B-Bomb will be on tap and available in 22oz bottles at 11am in our Urban Beer Garden. At 5pm, we will tap three B-Bomb infusions and rumor has it that the Yeti will be making an appearance once again.” B-Bomb weighs in at 14% ABV this year….careful!

Goose Island Bourbon County Stout Release: Beer geeks don’t care who owns Goose Island when it comes to seeking out the coveted Bourbon County Stout. It’s worth the hype. Friday is the first day that retailers around town will be able to sell bottles. Many will sell out quickly. Others, like my local Red Apple market up here in Beacon Hill, will price it insanely enough that it will sit on shelves for a couple of weeks. Confirmed Friday releases include: Both Chuck’s Hop Shops, Beer Junction, Bottleworks and Total Wine. I’m assuming many others will have it on Friday, or soon after.
