Today, Seattle is home to over 60 breweries. It hasn’t always been that way. When the craft beer revolution kicked off 40 years ago, Seattle was one of the first places it took hold. The city has never looked back. When most of the nation was just beginning to learn about craft beer, Seattle had been drinking it for decades. Why?
Join the Southwest Seattle Historical Society this Friday, February 26th for a discussion about how craft beer helped shape Seattle’s cultural identity. After a historical presentation by the Society, they’ll host a panel discussion with representatives from three local breweries.
Here are the details:
The Southwest Seattle Historical Society is very excited to announce “Here for the Beer! How Craft Beer Has Shaped Seattle’s Community Identity”. Join us on Friday, February 26th at 5:30 PM to dive into the history of how craft beer became such a staple in Seattle.
After a brief historical presentation by Maggie Kase, our Programs and Interpretation Coordinator, we’ll hear from local favorites The Good Society, Future Primitive Brewing, and Elliott Bay Brewing for a panel discussion on what makes craft beer on the Duwamish Peninsula so special to Seattleites.
Registration is required. Registration ends Thursday, February 25th for this program.
