There was an excellent article on Washington Beer Blog yesterday about the great beer bars of Seattle. Its writer, Kendall Jones, is probably the most respected of Seattle beer bar aficionados. He has seen over 20 years of greatness from the local pubs – he knows his shit.
But in the midst of mentioning the greats, Uber Tavern missed out on a mention. I presume that it missed out because its a no brainer – Uber is prolific. Kendall was paying respects to those bars that often miss the national spotlight.
Having reached the top of the Rate Beer Top Beer Bar list for several years in a row, Uber Tavern is a Seattle icon. Its also my personal favorite Seattle beer bar. They pour brews from around the world, stock an incredible selection of bottles, and dare to offer 4oz pours (try the full rack). Its the perfect perception of a beer bar.
Uber also has the distinct honor of being Cascade Brewing‘s go to bar in Seattle. When we visited Cascade (Portland, O), their amazing bar manager, Cody, informed us that they absolutely adore Uber. Because of their affinity for the tiny Green Lake bar, they have constantly sent beer to their taps.
Well, New Years has become a special time for Uber and Cascade collaboration. Like last year, Uber will be showcasing some special Cascade beer over the Holiday weekend.
Here is the rough schedule. Do not miss out. In fact, I’m surprised I am sharing this with you all because I am a selfish prick who wants all this brew to myself!!! A Ha Ha Ha….Ha. But, its all about community right? I want my fellow beer brethren there, sharing this wondrous grog alongside me.
See you there!
