Seattle Beer Week event – Goat Fest West at Beveridge Place Pub. Saturday, May 20th
It’s a Seattle Beer Week event. See all our posts about Seattle Beer Week 2023 events. Visit the Seattle Beer Week website for a calendar of all events.
In a previous post, we told you about Goat Fest at Varietal Beer Co. in Sunnyside, Washington. It’s basically a day dedicated to one style of beer: bock. The event features beers produced by a group of hand-selected breweries. Ones that Varietal feels will do a good job representing the style.
Why bock? Why goats? Why spring? Because bock is the German word for goat and goats are historically associated with fertility and amorous behavior, which is often associated with rites of spring. And thus, goats are associated with bock and bock is associated with spring. Goat Fest.
Now, Varietal Beer Co. is bringing it annual bock fest over the mountains to Western Washington. Join Beverage Place Pub in West Seattle on Saturday, May 20th for Goat Fest West.
“New for SEATTLE BEER WEEK we’re collaborating with Beveridge Place Pub in West Seattle for GOATFEST WEST! On Saturday, May 20th experience a dozen bock variants for a day of traditional German styles!”
