Yesterday, we posted a blurb about the 2010 Kitsap Octoberfest, a festival being held tomorrow at the Kitsap Mall. You can read more about the festival, and the amazing brew that will be on hand, by following this link to our post.
Anyways, the good folks at Silver City Brewery sent along some additional information after we published our post. Silver City is the driving force behind the festival, which they hope to renew on an annual basis.
“Big Daddy” Don Spencer put together a short “Beer Talk with Big Daddy” video that was published on You Tube. The beer video discusses the history of Octoberfest and the beer that made it famous.
We hope that the video is the first in a line of many to come, but we cannot be sure. Silver City is growing each and every day, having recently opened a second location down in Bremerton where they will open a tasting room.
The video is just too good to not post, so please check it out below.
Remember to join us tomorrow at the Kitsap Octoberfest from 11-9 PM. We will be around from 11-1 PM, tasting the greatness!
Have you ever taken the Kitsap beer trip? We have – its worth the boat ride.
Kitsap now showcases Silver City Brewery, Hales Ales, 7 Seas Brewing, Hood Canal Brewery and newcomers Der Blokken Brewery, Valholl Brewing and Grove Street Brewing. Close by, Jefferson County is the home of one of our faves – Port Townsend Brewing.
Recent expansion brought Silver City a second location in Bremerton, Hales Ales across the Sound to Silverdale and upcomer Der Blokken to the Kitsap fold (Bremerton). Remember, Hales is fresh off a gold medal at this year’s GABF!
So, lets celebrate the Peninsula with the coming of the Fall – Octoberfest! This Saturday, September 25, 2010, the Kitsap Mall will host the Kitsap Octoberfest. The party is billed as an all day family affair, filled with the Peninsula’s greatest brewers. Check out the list of breweries (and wineries) that will be pouring on Saturday.
This event is a one dang good deal – free. You will need to purchase your beer pours, but the festival will give you a great chance to sample a multitude of great West Sound beers from some brewers that you typically do not get a chance to see. We are particularly excited to finally sample Der Blokken, Valholl, and Grove Street.
Head on out Saturday morning and grab some breakfast in Bainbridge before heading West to Silverdale for the festival. The beer begins pouring bright and early at 11 AM and the weather is billed at 70 and Sunny. No better weather to be outside, drinking local beer and eating bratwurst.
Hope to see you all there!
