Seattle Beer Week 2011? Already!?
We have the dates for your favorite beer festival! May 19th- May 28th, Seattle will showcase the best in the world’s beer.
If you were lucky enough to live here the past two years, you probably know all about Seattle Beer Week. Its a 10 days celebration of all things barley, hops and yeast.
Last year’s celebration included visits from Port Brewing’s Tomme Arthur, Trappiste Rochefort’s Gumer Santos, and Patrick Rue of The Bruery, among many others. The 2010 variety also included a menagerie of mind bending events, such as 5 Guys, Burgers and Fries – featuring the creations of Sam Calagione, Rob Todd, Tomme Arthur (P, Dick Cantwell (Elysian) and Christian Ettinger (Hopworks).
We expect nothing but the best from the SBW crew. These guys are some of the most important people in the Seattle beer industry; their hard work has made Seattle Beer Week a huge beer destination.
Stay tuned to their website. We expect updates on the first set of events shortly.
Also, there has been some chatter that they are meeting with the SBW brewer this week. The past two years, Pike (09) and Hales (10) have created a Double IPA to commemorate the week. We are very curious to see who has been selected to make this delicious grog this year!
