Latona Pub Celebrates Earth Day with Human Powered Beer Delivery
This is a very cool event that warrants a little love from the blogging community. It also molds nicely into the Earth Day motif for the day.
You can check out photos of how breweries like Elysian Brewing, Big Time Brewing, Hales Ales, Fremont Brewing, Naked City Brewing and Maritime Pacific Brewing have each delivered their kegs to Latona. Each one has been delivered by way of hand truck (sometimes by relay).
It will be interesting to see if anyone finds some other alternative way to deliver their beer to the pub. Wheel barrow, bicycle, canoe (i know someone wants to go across green lake)?
At this moment, Two Beers Brewing of SODO is trying to figure out how to muster the 9.8 mile journey to the pub. You can join them in getting the beer to the public by visiting their facebook post and leaving a comment:
Two Beers Brewing Co. Help us sell a keg. Latona Pub is only taking kegs this week that are delivered in any form other than Car or Truck. This means we have to get a 140lb keg from SoDo to Green Lake under human power. Thoughts? Wanna help?
One thing is for sure – thanks to the resolve of great Seattle brewers and beer-fanatic Seattlites, Latona will not be dry this Earth Day.
