For over a decade, the good folks at Seattle’s Latona Pub have commemorated Earth Day (and Earth Week) by serving only beer delivered to the pub by non-motorized means. Kegs arrive by hand trucks, bicycles, row boats, or a combination of people-powered means. More than that, they create ways to raise funds for earth-focused organizations.

This year Latona Pub is doing it again. They’ll host two events. One on Tuesday, April 16th, and the other on Saturday, April 20th. In addition to that, there’s another fundraising mechanism involved. And that involves you and a fun way for you to support Washington Wild and the Brewshed Alliance®.

“We added a Sponsor a Walker component this year,” explains Chris Chapelle, Director of the Brewshed Alliance. “Much like 5K fundraiser runs, we have set up a page where individuals can sponsor their favorite breweries’ keg walker here: Washington Wild Sponsor a Keg Walker! The brewery that raises the most money will win a permanent tap at the Latona Pub for a month and all the bragging rights.”

You’ll find all the details about the events and the overall program below.

Keg walking for Mother Earth April 13-20th 2024

Fundraisers for Save Our Wild Salmon and the Brewshed Alliance: A Program of Washington Wild

The Latona Pub has been celebrating Earth Day with keg walking and special fundraising events for over ten years. We are teaming up this year with our friends at the Brewshed Alliance and Save Our Wild Salmon. We live in a unique place where world-class beer is merely a walk away. Protection of the watershed is part of a healthy ecosystem and the Brewshed Alliance, an important program of Washington Wild, has worked tirelessly to raise awareness about the link between water quality and beer. The health of salmon is of great concern to everyone, and the Save Our Wild Salmon organization has been dedicated to supporting the efforts to protect the watershed. We are excited to support these two amazing groups during our Earth Week events.

For a week, all the kegs delivered to the Latona will have been delivered by non-motorized means. Though the actual reduced impact on the environment is small the symbolism of these walks is great. Kegs have been delivered by bicycle from as far away as Bellingham, by sailboat from Anacortes, and with hand trucks from all over Seattle. There will be three walks this year starting with a walk from Georgetown on the 13th, with stops at participating breweries along the way. On the 15th will be the Northend walk, and on the 17th the Ballard Walk.

The walks will be followed by two fundraising events at the Latona. On Tuesday, the 16th there will be a celebration of Save our Wild Salmon, with a live auction and music with Bluetide starting at 7pm. On Saturday the 20th we have our finale with a fundraising event for The Brewshed Alliance. All the beer hand-trucked to the Latona will be on tap, and we will have a live auction, and music with Leif Totusek starting at 7pm.

The neighborhood pub has long been a gathering place for neighbors to discuss an array of topics. The Latona Pub is a perfect place to reflect on Earth Day. Raise a pint with our brewer friends and help support these amazing organizations.
