Lucky Envelope Brewing invites you to join them and celebrate the season—the harvest, the full moon, and the community. The Mid-Autumn Festival is a tradition at the brewery, one they’ll celebrate this year on Thursday, October 1st, and Friday, October 2nd.

Beer Release Descriptions:
Blood Orange Ginger IPA (6.8% ABV)
*Limited draft only*
We infused our west coast ENIAC IPA with blood orange zest and fresh grated ginger. The resulting beer pours medium bodied and is a bold citrus explosion with a hoppy Mosaic backbone and tongue-tingling spicy ginger finish.
Lychee Black Tea Sour (5.7% ABV)
*Limited draft only*
This sour is brewed with Seattle’s own MarketSpice aromatic Chinese black tea, lychee juice, and lychee peel. Lychee, a tropical fruit native to Southeast Asia, is often described as the perfect blend of sweet and tart. The earthy flavors of black tea and the fruity flavor of lychee meld together wonderfully in our lightly acidic base golden sour.
2020 Double Happiness Imperial Porter (10.3% ABV)
*500ml bottles -$12*
Our Imperial Porter was double barrel-aged in Malbec and Westland Whiskey barrels then blended with fresh Imperial Porter for brightness. Red stone fruit and oak tannin harmonize with vanilla, smoke and caramel into a smooth, delightfully complex beer. Named after the traditional “Double Happiness” Chinese characters which appear often during Chinese New Year celebrations.
