Seattle’s Burke-Gilman Brewing invites you to join in the fun this Saturday as it celebrates Frühlingsfest. The event starts at noon and runs until close. Frühlingsfest, or spring fest, celebrates the season with beer and German-themed fun. At Burke-Gilman Brewing, that means tapping a keg of The Archduke, a Vienna Lager that just won gold at the Best of Craft Brewing Awards. They’ll also tap into some other award-winning German-style beers.
Here’s the announcement straight from the brewery with more details.
Burke-Gilman Brewing invites the community to celebrate Frühlingsfest, the traditional German festival of spring, on April 22, 2023. The event will feature authentic German food and a selection of Burke-Gilman’s finest brews.
Frühlingsfest, or “Spring Festival,” is a celebration started in Munich and marks the arrival of spring. Increasingly, Frühlingsfest is celebrated around the world and is a symbol of German culture and tradition.
This is our second time celebrating Frühlingsfest, and to prepare we have been saving kegs of all kinds of german beer we have brewed this year – everything our brewers Phil and Julia could come up with. We’re going to have a keg of our Vienna Lager, The Archduke, which just won the gold at the Best of Craft Brewing Awards. We’ll have our Rauchbier, Embers Only, which won gold last year. We’ll have our Czech Dark Lager, Cerny Kov, which won the SIP NW Platinum in 2021. And much more! Our Dortmunder Export and our Hefeweizen. A new Bohemian Pilsner! And a few more styles that we’ve never done before!
The celebration will take place on April 22, 2023, from noon until close at Burke-Gilman Brewing. Admission to the event is free and open to the public. Beez Neez Sausages will be selling bratwurst at 4, and we’ll have The Cookie Break from 2-6. We’ll also have pretzels until they run out!
