On Friday we stopped at our new favorite spot, Hooverville in the SoDo neighborhood of Seattle. After an accidental fire, Hooverville was rebuilt to look exactly the same as it did before. If it aint broke, dont fix it. Free peanuts for all, permission to throw the shells on the floors and a decent tap list- Dogfish head 60 Min. IPA, Ninkasi Total Domination, Odin Ruby Ale and about 10 others. On Saturday, we participated in the after party for Tour de Fat at Brouwer’s Cafe. In honor of the environmentally conscience brewery, New Belgium who hosts the event, I had a Trip III and the Fall Wild Ale. All -n- all a good beer weekend.
