September 20th, 2017 · 1 Comment · Events, Washington Breweries

Hiking and beer often go hand-in-hand. No, I don’t mean drinking during the hike. But, a tasty pint after a strenuous hike can often be the most enjoyable part of the day.

For Beers Made by Walking, hiking and beer come together in a more unique way. Local brewers were invited to head out on hikes and then craft new beers inspired by their experience on the trail.

Rather than recreate the wheel, for more information I’ll point you in the direction of this Beer Advocate interview with Eric Steen, who passionately puts together Beers Made by Walking, as well as the press release below with all the relevant details for the event at Naked City on Oct 7.

Calling all Washington craft beer and outdoor enthusiasts – The 2017 Seattle Beers Made by Walking special tapping event is coming to Naked City Brewery & Taphouse this Oct. 7th from 1:00-5:00pm PST. Beers Made By Walking invites brewers to go on nature hikes and make new beers inspired by plants observed on the trail. Each beer is a unique, drinkable portrait of the landscape. This event showcases 10 place-based beers from 10 Washington State breweries inspired by one of three trails and hikes they attended over the summer organized by Washington Wild. Hikes included the Upper CCC Trail, Wallace Falls, and Cherry Creeks Falls.

All of the breweries participating are Partners of the Washington Wild Brewshed Alliance, an outreach program of Washington Wild of over 50 breweries that helps people make a simple connection: healthy watersheds mean clean water, and clean water makes better beer.

Tickets, available from Washington Wild, are $20 and include entry and eight 4 oz. pours. Early bird tickets are available before September 16th and include two extra 4 oz. pours. All proceeds of this event are donated to Washington Wild to help protect public lands, wild spaces, and clean and healthy watersheds in Washington State.
