Brouwers Cafe Publishes Washington Beer Festival Lineup

 

North Sound Brewing pouring two new IPAs at WBF

 

Last week we published an article about Washington Beer Festival, which begins tomorrow at Brouwers Cafe. Brouwers will be clearing every single tap in the house for Washington brewers and matching the exquisite beer offerings with some locally sourced food options.

If you want to check up on the event as it develops, check out Brouwers’ website. But, the bar released its initial version of the tap list. We are speechless.

Events for Week of August 30, 2010

Stop by New Belgium Brewing Co for Tour De Fat this week!

Saturday was a good beer day- Big Al Brewing Co. for a sampler: Tripple, Alt Bier, Abbey Wheat, Smoked Porter and the IPA were all very tasty. The Alt Bier and Abbey Wheat stood out among the crowd. We stopped at Cask in West Seattle, a new wine/beer bar that opened just 5 weeks ago. The owner offers a “to-go” section that focuses on imports. We stayed for just one, Fremont Brewing Co.’s Interurban IPA dry hopped with Cascade hops, Lime, Orange and Grapefruit zest. Damn good. Porter House- just across the street has about 12-15 beers on tap- Pliny the Elder was up for grabs but I went with this new brewery- North Sound Brewing. Both their Stout (classic dry Irish stout served on Nitro) and their IPA were stellar. A night in was filled with IPAs- 7 Seas Ballz Deep Double IPA (in a tall boy can) and an IPA from Yakima Craft Brewing Co. But now for your week in beer:
