The folks over at The Noble Fir are quickly becoming the best place to grab a pint in Ballard. Unfortunately, everyone knows that now! The Noble Fir is now serving up a full house most nights.
A few months back, we talked about “Pints for Parks.” The event has the Fir donating $1 of every pint poured from 6:30 until close, on Wednesdays, to Seattle Parks. Over the past few months, they have managed to pour 2000 pints, donating $2000.00 to the parks.
The Fir west big again this week. Oscar Blue’s Gubna Imperial IPA is one of the most rugged on the market, and it was the featured beer yesterday. A love for that same beer, caused an epic rift between myself and another bar that shares Ballard Avenue with the Fir. Because that bar charged me $8.00 (its $3.00 next door at Olde Town Alehouse) for this 12oz can, it will forever not see another dollar from me. I won’t mention them because they don’t deserve the press.
But, you can hope that the Fir will continue pouring this delicious brew through the rest of the week. If you still have not had a chance to get by the Fir – now is your chance! Remember that next Wednesday means another great beer.
Keep up the great work for Seattle Parks!!!

More on HUB and thier new release comes straight from the press release:
Hopworks Urban Brewery’s (HUB) Secession Cascadian Dark Ale is now available in 22 oz. bottles and on draft at select stores, restaurants and bars throughout Oregon, Washington and Vancouver, British Columbia. The limited release beer is returning to HUB’s lineup through early Spring.
First released in the Summer of 2009 for the North American Organic Brewers Festival, Secession is a Cascadian Dark Ale. This emerging beer style features organic pilsner, C60, chocolate and black malts and a healthy addition of Magnum, Cascade, Amarillo, Simcoe and Mt. Hood hops. All of this results in a beer that is an alliance of Northwest hop flavors as formidable as the Cascade Mountain Range and roasted malts as dark as a moonless night.
Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB) is Portland’s first Eco-Brewpub to offer all organic handcrafted beers, fresh local ingredients and a sustainable building with a relaxed and casual atmosphere. HUB incorporates all aspects of sustainability from composting and rain barrels to pervious pavers and hand dryers. We have made every effort to protect “our” future with a thoughtful alternative.
So check out this great brewery tonight or tomorrow at one of these awesome venues!
