New Belgium Brewing is holding a few events this evening, in Seattle. If you have nothing going on, there is no reason to miss out on the opportunity to taste some very rare NB offerings.
The Colorado brewer has been very active in the area of late. We assume this is in part related to the ongoing collaboration with Seattle’s Elysian Brewing, with whom New Belgium recently released the sixth installment of its Trip series of beers. Check out Jess’ article on the series by following this link.
Tonight you can catch New Belgium at either of these two fine events:
New Belgium Brewers Night @ The Whiskey Bar
Wow. So glad that I heard about this event. New Belgium’s Brewer’s Night features New Belgium-Elysian Trip VI Fresh Hop IPA, Lips of Faith Sahti, NB-Elysian Trip III Sour brown, Lips of Faith Fall Wild Ale (Dubbel w/ Brett), 1554, & Lips of Faith Matty’s Dunkelweiss.
All of these beers are incredible. Most of these beers are a hard find in Washington. I am most intrigued by the Lips of Faith Sahti, the latest addition to this absolutely mouth-watering collective of beers. The Sahti is rumored to feature much of the flavors found in Trip IV, which is one of my favorites. The brewery stated that it will almost mimic Trip IV with “maybe a slight tweak in percentages but same grain bill for sure.” That means juniper, rye, and amarillo magic. Don’t miss it.
You probably also want to try the Dunkelweiss and the Trip III, before its gone for good. Oh yeah – the Fresh Hop will be pouring as well.
The Whiskey Bar is at 2000 2nd Ave # 101, Seattle, WA. Get there at 7:00 PM, when this event kicks off!
New Belgium/Elysian Brewing Trip VI Firkin @ The Hopvine
Its Harvest Beer Week at the Hopvine! Tonight, Oct. 5th is Cask Night at the bar. They will be rolling out a firkin of New Belgium-Elysian Trip VI Fresh Hop IPA.
This is the last remaining cask of this amazing beer! You will not want to miss a chance at tasting this off the cask.
Hopvine is at 15th Ave E., Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA. The event kicks off at 6:00 PM.
