Lunar New Year Celebrations & Beers at Lucky Envelope Brewing

Glasses of beer and Chinese red envelopes announce the Lunar New Year celebration.


Lunar New Year Kickoff Celebration on Saturday, February 10th. Other events and more beer releases mark the occasion.

Seattle’s Lucky Envelope Brewing is a culturally inspired craft brewery, founded by some folks who are proud of their cultural heritage. The brewery’s name itself is a nod to that heritage. On Lunar New Year and other days of celebration, it’s a Chinese tradition to give the gift of a lucky red envelope containing some sort of gift or prize. Celebrating Chinese New Year is an annual tradition at the brewery and taproom in Ballard, a celebration involving red envelopes, beer, and more.

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2024 is the year of the dragon. Starting on Thursday, February 8th, Lucky Envelope Brewing has a celebration planned to commemorate the new year. Join them as they welcome the dragon.

The dragon is the fifth animal in the 12-year Chinese zodiac. It is considered a powerful and vivacious creature with strong self-awareness. The dragon represents auspiciousness and power. How will it manifest itself in the coming year? That remains to be seen, but a party at a brewery is always a good way to kick things off. Lucky Envelope Brewing invites you to enjoy the following festivities and beers. Find all the details below.

Year of the Dragon IPA – 6.3% ABV – We are excited to collaborate with PCC Markets to present a special Lunar New Year IPA in honor of the Year of the Dragon!

Rooted in traditional Chinese culture, the addition of oranges symbolizes luck, prosperity, and happiness. Available exclusively at PCC Markets.
