Events for Week of August 16, 2010
Highlights of beer for this weekend: 1/3 of Beer Blotter visited Walking Man Brewery (look for a 52 places article later this week) while I stayed in Seattle soaking in the 90 degree plus weather. I stopped at Fremont Brewing Co. on Saturday and enjoyed their Interurban IPA on cask dry hopped with Cascade hops and Mango. Damn good. But now for the week ahead.
