It was just about a year ago that Ladd & Lass Brewing opened for business in Seattle’s University District neighborhood. On Saturday, January 7th the company celebrates its first year of operation with a party at the brewery’s taproom. The party goes from 2:00 until 10:00.
Here are the details straight from Ladd & Lass Brewing:
Ladd & Lass Brewing is excited to be throwing a party on Saturday, 1/7, for our very first anniversary! It’s been an incredible year and we want to celebrate with all the good folks we have had the pleasure of meeting since opening.
To kick off the celebrations, L&L will be releasing two beers at the party:
- Year One, an English barleywine, and The Pale Project, an American pale ale. Packed with incredible aromas of bready malt, toasty biscuit, and delightfully rich caramel and toffee, Year One is a liquid love letter to everyone who has supported us this past year.
- Anyone already familiar with our draft offerings will know that The Pale Project is a beer near and dear to our hearts. What started off as a pursuit of the “perfect pale” by three homebrew-loving friends—-Shawn Miller, co-owner of Micro Homebrew Tony Ochsner, and L&L brewer Nick Ladd—is now (what we hope) a fitting tribute to one of its original collaborators. Brewed in honor of Shawn, L&L’s biggest supporter and loudest advocate, a portion of proceeds from sales of the pale will be donated to the Cascadia College Foundation to help fund the Shawn Miller Memorial Scholarship for First Generation Students.
Both beers will be available on draft and in 16-oz cans.
Carbon Pop Food Truck and Lovely & Dapper Desserts will be on hand from 4–7pm with their savory burgers and delicious tin can cakes, respectively. There will also be fun and games to round out the eating and drinking.
As with all L&L celebrations, there will be a coloring contest! Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 vote-getters. And Kodi Sershon, the illustrator behind our Baba Yaga-inspired Deprived of Light beer label, will be joining us to create custom, hand-drawn portraits of our party guests.
Last, but certainly not least, L&L will be launching their Can Club at the anniversary party. Benefits of the $200 annual membership include (12) 4-packs and discounts on draft pours, beer-to-go, and merchandise. More information and Can Club sign-ups will be available at the party.
