Hellbent Brewing opened in Seattle’s Lake City neighborhood eight years ago and immediately filled a need for the area’s first brewery and taproom. Sure, Elliott Bay Brewing was there operating its full-service brewpub, but that’s a different animal. The locals embraced Hellbent’s taproom vibe and Hellbent embraced the locals. The brewery has been an active, beloved member of the community ever since.
Join Hellbent Brewing on Saturday, June 10th as it pays tribute to its first eight years. For the event, they’ll welcome three tribute bands to fill the day with rockin’ entertainment. Also, the brewery will introduce a special anniversary beer, a West Coast IPA. Here’s what else they have planned for you.
8th Anniversary Party
Saturday, June 10th, Noon-Midnight

What’s it all about?
Pay tribute to some of your favorite bands while drinking some of the best beer north Seattle has to offer at Hellbent’s 8th Anniversary: The Tribute Party, Saturday, June 10th.
You know how we like to do it over at Hellbent, we “Can’t Stop” making mouth-watering, hop-forward brews and we’re going all out for our 8th Anniversary IPA – our personal homage to the west coast style IPA. We invite you to “Come as You Are” and rock out to 3 bands paying tribute to Bruce Springsteen (1-3pm), Nirvana (3:30-5:30pm), and the Red Hot Chili Peppers (6-9pm).
We’ll be closing off the parking lot for an extended beer garden featuring a satellite bar, and three food trucks: Tacos & Beer, Oskars Pizza, and Impeckable Chicken. Great music? Great Food? Great beer? We’ll be “Dancing in the Dark” before you know it. No cover. 21+.
1-3pm – Hungry Heart: Springsteen Tribute
“Of all the music that has influenced local Americana singer/songwriter, Tyler Hamilton, the classic sounds of Bruce Springsteen have taken root the deepest. He is excited to finally put together his own E-street Band to play some of his favorite songs in tribute to the Boss! Catch Tyler up on stage delivering his high energy rock and roll stylings as he takes you on a Hemi-powered journey from Asbury Park all the way to the streets of his Hometown.”
3:30-5:30pm – Nevermind: Seattle’s Tribute to Nirvana
“Nevermind is a Seattle based rock and roll trio that pays tribute to legendary rock band, Nirvana. Born in the heart of Seattle in the old Studio 7 rehearsal spaces they have taken the region by storm by selling out venues with a singer that can shred the mic and guitar, a 6’8″ rock bass legend, and a drummer that would make Dave Grohl blush, Nevermind is able to deliver the powerful and energetic performance that captures the sonic energy of Nirvana. Come as you are and experience a performance that will take you through BLEACH, NEVERMIND, Unplugged, IN utero, and a splash zone of DESTROYED GUITARS.”
6-9pm – Readymade: Chili Peppers Tribute
“Est. 2020, Readymade is The PNW’s #1 tribute to the music of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The band’s three seasoned instrumentalists are Nate Bushmaker (A Band Called Celia), Zak Melang (Supersonic Soul Pimps), and Chase Culp (Point One) playing the parts of “John Frusciante”, “Flea”, and “Chad Smith”, respectively. Readymade found their free spirited “Anthony Kiedis” when a mutual friend spotted Derek Sepesy crushing “the Zephyr Song” at weeknight karaoke! Readymade is dedicated to recreating the look, sound and ecstatic live energy of the iconic California rockers to the PNW with every performance!”
